Top-Rated Large Crossover SUV Autobytel & AutoPacific
Top-Rated Large Crossover SUV Winner: 2012 Chevrolet Traverse
After tallying up the data drawn from more than 75,000 new-vehicle owners during the first quarter of 2012, the experts at Autobytel and AutoPacific have recently announced their list of Vehicle Satisfaction Awards (VSAs)—which include the sharp-looking and versatile Chevrolet Traverse as this year’s highest-rated large crossover vehicle. Notably, the win for the Traverse, as is the case with all the VSA victors, was based solely on that customer feedback, providing a highly accurate look at which vehicles best satisfy real-world owners in all facets of the ownership experience. Many other third-party customer-satisfaction measures look to just one or two pieces of the puzzle or, in the case of publication-sponsored recognitions, the opinion of so-called “experts” who spend just a few hours or days in the vehicle.
