Pros

Room for up to eight; attractive styling; upscale amenities; car-like handling; available all-wheel-drive


Model Highlights

The Chevy Traverse is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine is good for 288 hp, giving the Traverse plenty of oomph for merging and more. Power is sent to either the front or to all four wheels with the $2,000 all-wheel-drive option.

Four trim levels are available: LS, 1LT, 2LT and top-of-the-line LTZ. The base LS comes with plenty of standard features, including an AM/FM/CD player with auxiliary input, USB and satellite radio functions. Bluetooth connectivity, 17-inch wheels, daytime running lights, a 6.5-inch touch screen display and a rearview camera are also standard. Chevrolet knows that people spend a lot of time in their cars and so the Traverse features a total of ten cup holders for occupants.

1LT-equipped vehicles get 18-inch wheels, an 8-way adjustable power driver's seat, rear park-assist, body-colored external moldings, a remote vehicle starter, heated mirrors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The 2LT gives buyers a nicer Bose audio system, heated front seats, tri-zone climate control, a universal home remote, electronic auto-dimming mirror and a power rear liftgate. LTZ models add plenty of appearance add-ons and even more luxury. The 20-inch aluminum wheels are matched with exterior chrome accents to set the vehicle apart. Inside, seating is trimmed in perforated leather and both front seats are heated and cooled. The steering wheel is also heated. Upgraded safety tech on the LTZ includes Blind Zone Alert and Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, making normally tricky reversing maneuvers much easier.

Basic safety equipment across all trim levels is extensive. Anti-lock brakes and StabiliTrak prevent the brakes from locking and the vehicle from going into a skid. A standard rear view monitor provides convenience and added safety, while a tire pressure monitoring system keeps an eye on over or underinflated tires. Airbags are plentiful, including a front center side airbag, which inflates between the two front passengers, an industry first. GM's OnStar system is also standard. Optional on 2LT and LTZ models, is a Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning system, which utilizes cameras to monitor nearby traffic and help assess possible collision threats both in front of the Traverse and in the lanes beside it.


Model News

The Chevrolet Traverse remains largely unchanged for 2015. There is a new wheel design for the 18-inch alloys available on some trims as well as several new body colors. Apple's Siri 'eyes-free' text message system is also new for this year.


Value Writeup

The Chevrolet Traverse starts at just about $31,000 and offers a lot of space and luxury for the price. Unlike other minivans available, the Traverse has bold SUV-like styling without giving up too much interior volume. The interior space combines with a cushy ride, to make the Traverse a fairly pleasant place to spend time in. The vehicle strikes a very nice balance between these various attributes, making it a good value for families seeking comfortable transportation.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured December 9, 2014, to January 14, 2015, 2015 Chevrolet Traverse vehicles manufactured December 9, 2014, to January 20, 2015, and 2015 GMC Acadia vehicles manufactured December 9, 2014, to January 16, 2015, and all equipped with Goodyear P255/65R18 Fortera HL tires. These vehicles are equipped with tires that may experience tread cracking. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or Less."

Consequence
If the tire treads crack, a loss of tire pressure and possible tire failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires that were manufactured within a specific date range, free of charge. This manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (Buick), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 15025/15067. Note: This recall is for Goodyear P255/65R18 Fortera HL tires installed as original equipment. For tires that were purchased as replacement equipment, see recall 15T-002.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
