Chevrolet Traverse Real Gas Mileage: Cons

Fuel economy literally sucks!! I guess it's the price you pay for driving a big vehicle with all-wheel drive. I also own a new GMC 4x4 quad cab truck with a 6 liter engine. My truck gets better fuel economy than my 3.6 liter Traverse. Maybe I just got stuck with a lemon. I'm told that fuel economy is supposed to get better once the engine gets more km's on it. I doubt it will improve very much at all to notice any savings at the pump. see full Chevrolet Traverse review
