I felt very comfortable with purchasing a 2021 Traverse LT. My parents have a 2019 Highlander XLE and my sister has the 2020 Kia Telluride SX. My main reason for my purchase, it was the only 7 seat SUV with captains chairs under $40k. Does it have the refinement of my family members' cars, no. However it didn't have the price tag either. The engine on the Traverse is awesome. It is powerful yet also quiet. Overall, the interior is also the quietest of the 3. The ride is smooth although some noticeable body roll when turning, but it's minimal. The body roll on the Highlander is much worse. It doesn't have the athleticism, nor does it have the amazing technology of the Kia, but it's also $20k less. The rear seats and room are superior on the Traverse. By a lot. The Captains chairs are the most comfortable and the rear seat is not only the largest, but the most accessible. If Money wasn't a consideration I would take the Kia first, the Traverse 2nd and the Highlander 3rd. But considering the vast difference in price, I am very pleased with my choice.

Was completely in love with this SUV...

Until today. Don't get me wrong there are so many things I love about this car. It's gorgeous, and it has enough room to accommodate my family. Gas mileage I'd fairly decent for size and being a V6. I've had brake noise since the day I bought it. Learned that GM has a document or regarding the issue. Not a huge deal. Took it in to the shop to address this. Since it normally does it before the brakes warm up they haven't been able to experience yet but find that all 4 of my tires were bad (not Chevys fault of course). A couple days ago it started making an awful noise after having it serviced for the first time. I have just over 7000 miles on it and found out today the transmission is bad. Transmission will need to be replaced and I'll be without my vehicle possibly 3 weeks. Little too soon to be dealing with major issues. Just hoping once I get it back it I don't have any other major issues any time soon.

I Love This SUV!!

I previously had a 2012 Traverse that I loved but decided I wanted something smaller and more fuel efficient so I bought a new Honda CRV in 2018 (which was small but did not get the great gas mileage it claimed). I hated that car pretty much the entire time I had it and finally traded it in on a new 2021 Traverse. I love my new Traverse! It’s so comfortable and safe feeling and has nice features that I didn’t have on my CRV like Apple Car Play, WiFi and heated mirrors. There is so much space inside and it’s beautiful on the outside! I wish I had bought this a long time ago. I think this might be my favorite vehicle I’ve ever owned.

Brake noises

Recently purchase brand new. Have drove it for less than 1000 miles on it and brakes have an issue. Brakes have a grinding noise throughout the drive. Sound louder at first then once brakes heat up it sound less but you can hear and feel it at mid to higher speed brakes. I brought it to my local dealership who told me "GM is aware of the issue but have not found a solution for the problem. 2020 models have the same issue and GM has not found a solution yet." If I knew this before I purchased this vehicle, I wouldn't have purchased it.

Big, comfortable, reasonably fast highway cruiser

If you are looking for a comfortable ride, this is it. I just love Chevy internal ergonomics, to me it looks clean and properly placed. Its a big crossover though, it could barely fit in my garage. 😁
