    Default Just bought a 2011 Traverse

    Well, my wife and I just bought a 2011 Chevy Traverse yesterday. It will be her vehicle to haul the kids around. The decision was between the Traverse and the Honda Pilot. But the Pilot did not have the cargo room behind the third row seats like the Traverse, and plus its not a Chevy. Anyway, we love it, just waiting for snow to come down so we can really see the advantage of the AWD.

    Welcome to the site! Let's see some pics.

    The Traverse is an incredible world-class vehicle, I had never been so shocked at the handling of a vehicle than when I went from driving a Tahoe to a Traverse back-to-back and took a corner kinda fast. I expected to feel that big lumbering body-roll, but none-of-it, pushed me back in my seat and I took it like I was on rails.

    Just a great vehicle. What color did you end up with?

    It is silver. It is the LT1 model. We are not fans of all the accessories - just power locks, windows, and mirrors that's all we need. It does have heated cloth seats (how strange is that?). I will post pics later tonight.

    That's awesome. I hope you jump into some of the CNG threads in the fuel forum on this site, would love to get some real-world feedback as people are starting to look at CNG again now that gas prices are getting high again.

    Steve,

    I know this is not the place, but since you brought up CNG. I have been driving a Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) for over 4 years now. I started with a 2001 Chevy Cavalier and now I have a 2003 Cavalier and a 2003 Silverado (both bi-fuel). I have saved well over $6,000 in fuel costs because CNG is about 3 times cheaper than gasoline. I have searched these forums for all discussions on CNG and while there are some, there is only a few. Good news is Chevy is listening. They are offering vans now that are CNG and starting in 2013, they will offer Silverados with CNG.
