Cons: low to ground
Advice: buy it gas saver and alot of roomI have a 2006 i love it i get 32 mpg and i love the way it rides and drives
Cons: oil filer location
Advice: It is a solid Crossover with good acceleration on the LTZ model & has a good amount of cargo spaceI traded in a 2007 Silverado LTZ Vortec Max on this New 2010 Traverse LTZ 10-30-09 & have been very pleased with my decision. MPG's was the main reason I opted for a smaller vehicle but I did not want to give up what I had become accustomed to such as the Big sound of the Bose audio system, Onstar, Leather seats, Climate control front & rear, Sun Roof, Remote Start, etc. I got all of those things in the Traverse LTZ with a pretty nifty RearView Camera whenever I put it in reverse. In addition, I don't have to unlock & lift up a Tonneau Cover anymore to carry large things because the Traverse has a lot of cargo area when I fold down the 3rd seats & 2nd row Captain's seats. Initially I was going to get the Dark Cherry colored Traverse but my 'excellent' salesperson' Dina at Tom Bell Chevrolet in Redlands, Cali said she liked the Black Granite more. She was right! My Traverse has quick acceleration for a medium sized Crossover & hardly noticable outside noise. Stepping down in size from a 4x4 Silverado 5ft bed is a rather pleasant change for me in the Traverse. Also, I almost forgot to mention the Rear Lift can be activated by the Remote or from inside the Traverse. The strangest things I have experienced is the fact that the battery is not located under the hood..it is located behind the passenger seat in the floor. In addition, I pulled up to fill it up for the first time since I bought it. I went inside & paid for gas. When I came back out & looked for a lever or little push down down by the driver seat or the lower driver side dash I couldn't find one. It was friday evening & people were driving up to fill up so I went back inside & asked for my money back & drove home. I called Onstar & the tech lady said push in on the gas cover door & it will pop open. Boy did I feel dumb. All in all I would recommend the 2010 Traverse LTZ as a VERY good alternative to a big SUV that doesn't skimp on amenities, acceleration, or Cargo space. This was the first time I really felt good about a New Automobile & the salesperson. Dina is a terrific salesman because she is honest, straightfoward, & knowledgable. She searched & searched until she found what I wanted at the price I could afford
Pros: being able to check gas mileage and tire pressure whenever i want to
Cons: I don't like the silver button on the dashboard compartment
Advice: It is easy to park and very stabile when driving in the rain.I test drove this car and liked it and purchased it. It is gradually increasing in gas mileage as i get use to driving it. The ride is a little harder then i am use to since this is the first SUV i have ever owned. It is great if you have problems getting out of the lower sedans and helps someone who has knee problems tremendously.
Pros: The ride and the looks
Cons: view in back
Advice: choose a dealer who does not try to pressure you to add all of their warranties.We are extremely pleased with this vehicle. Trading in an older Dodge Caravan, we were pleasantly surprised at the many improvements and features. The one complaint we have is the vision for backing up. We will probably buy the rear view camera, which will run about $1000.
Pros: XM Radio
Cons: Storage area behind back seat.
Advice: If you are looking for a comfortable high tech vehicle with plenty of leg room front and back, this is the car for you.Chevrolet has done a masterful job of providing the driver with a cabin that is comfortable and quiet. I hate to leave my car when listening to the XM radio and hearing music the way it was supposed to be heard. You're like in your own world where you can forget about the business around you. It's amazing that GM could put so many high tech features in a car of this price. I took it for a 400 mile trip as soon as I got it and completely enjoyed every mile. My first tank of gas gave me only 25MPG so I hope I can increase those numbers on my next trip. The only negative I can point out is that the width of the storage space behind the back seat is much smaller than other SUV's I've owned.
Pros: handling brakes speed
Cons: 18 in, tires are loud no dual exhaust
Advice: buy the ssthis is my second hhr ' first was a base 2007. this one now is a ss automatic. i just love this ss. lots of speed, great brakes,26 mpg all around driving,handles like a sports car,
Pros: Size and Style
Cons: No electric Seat on Passenger side.
Advice: I would tell them to drive one and see if they like it.I bought my Sport Equinox on 10/01/2007. I drove it a little over 100 miles. The fuel milage was great. The car performance was awsome! It is such a cute and sporty little SUV.
