What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

2016 Chevrolet Traverse Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 4dr SUV 281-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I bought this vehicle to be able to transport my grandchildren back and forth between New Jersey and Ohio. I have the 2LT version with four captains chairs and really enjoy the convienence of not having to move a middle row seat to allow one of them to get into the "way back". Having three kids jammed together in a middle seat for an 8 hour drive is courting disaster--that's why I needed that third seat. Everyone has plenty of space. Normally I find any drive over 4 hours a bit uncomfortable but the seat and driver's position was very relaxing and comfortable. This particular vehicle has the most room for storage behind the third seat than any in its class. It is only beat by minivans and they just aren't my kind of vehicle. see full Chevrolet Traverse review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2016 Chevrolet Traverse

2016 Chevrolet Traverse Powertrain: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2016 4dr SUV 281-horsepower 3.6L V6

The powertrain readily gets the vehicle up to speed, even when loaded with people and stuff. Shifting is smooth and barely noticeable--both a tribute to the transmission and the sound insulation. I thought coming from a CVT I would be annoyed by the shifting but it hasn't been a problem whatsoever. One nice feature is the starting battery is located just forward the right middle row seat in a compartment in the floor. Keeps the battery clean and well protected. If you replace the battery it would be helpful to have a device to lift the battery unless you have exceptionally strong and long fingers. see full Chevrolet Traverse review

2016 Chevrolet Traverse Tires: Cons

I bought the vehicle used with Goodyear Fortura tires. They were terrible, provided a lot of road noise and vibration. Replaced with Firestone Destination LE2--a totally different vehicle. The Goodyears still had good tread but they were severely weather cracked on the sidewall as well as the tread. see full Chevrolet Traverse review
