Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: The ride of a car with the practical features of a SUV.
Cons: Gas milageThis is the first U.S. made car I've owned in 30 years. What a pleasent surprise.
Cons: The front endUgly I have a 2005 mazda 3 that is an awesome car!!!
Best small car I have ever owned!!
Pros: The Preferred Package
Cons: Horn. We had a real horn put on @ the dealership.The biggest problem I have is; my wife won't let me drive the Cube! This is her car. After 50 years of marriage I can't argue. We got the SL with the SL Preferred Package Again, great small car.
Pros: The NAV/Sync system with MP3 jack.
Cons: The plastic cover attached to the 20 inch rims.Going from an SUV to this CUV is a great change. It feels sporty like a car, yet lots of room inside for comfort and ease of getting in and out with my back problems, (which is why I couldn't buy a sports car).
Love my Traverse
Pros: Folding rear seats for cargo since I do not have a pickup.
Cons: Lack of PowerIt has almost as much room as my Suburban had but the seats fold down easily and gas mileage is much better.
Pros: Good power and mileage
Cons: No padding in Seats Ouch!v6 Sport suspension rides rough but corners nice
Best car I have ever owned
Pros: Turbo and mileage
Cons: Love it all5 speed Turbo. Live in mountains outside of Denver, and this is the best vehicle that I have ever owned. I have the 'driveway from hell' - suffice it to say that the local towing company knows my house well - and this car has never failed me. Bought it in 2003 and in 2010 has 80K miles. Only maint is the usual - oil changes and new plugs and air filter at 60K. Runs like a dream and gets average of 23 MPG combined city/hwy, and better than 28 on I70 too and from the ski areas (which obviously has many long climbs). Overall a great car - am hard pressed to even consider a new one, although at 64 the joints are giving trouble in my left foot and may have to go with an automatic. You absolutely can't go wrong with this car. We own 3 Subarus ('92 SVX, '01 Outback, and the '04 Forester) and would never buy anything else. They are the best value around (nothing else comes close for the price) and the quality is about the best out there.
