The Chevy Traverse was the perfect vehicle for me to take six friends to a Detroit Red Wings game. The seven-passenger setup is easy to navigate thanks to the second row captain's chairs, making third-row accessibility an easy task even for adults.

With my wife and kids coming into town, I put in a special request for the Traverse. I had been very impressed with our Four Seasons Audi Q5, which left me feeling that (cost aside) it was an ideal car for my family, a natural next step from our desperate-for-retirement Honda Odyssey.

When it debuted for the 2009 model year, the Traverse made no sense to me. General Motors already had three (excellent) versions of its large-crossover architecture, and it was clear that Chevy dealers just wanted a piece of the pie. But now that the Saturn brand is gone, taking the Outlook along with it, the existence of the Traverse makes more sense, especially since Buick/GMC dealers have two vehicles on this platform, the Enclave and the Acadia.

I really don't care for the Traverse's strangely shaped, undersized rear window, which I find neither attractive nor practical. From the outside, the window looks way too small for such a sizeable vehicle, and the broad expanse of sheetmetal underneath it only serves to emphasize the odd proportions. From the driver's seat, the window appears small and very far away through the rearview mirror, compromising rear visibility. Other than that, the Traverse is a perfectly capable crossover vehicle, with comfortable seats, a nicely styled interior, room for seven passengers, and a decent powertrain.

As far as large, seven-passenger crossovers go, I still think the Chevy Traverse is very competitive with vehicles like the Honda Pilot, the Toyota Highlander, and the Ford Flex. I am always impressed when I get in one because of its surprisingly plush interior, and this powertrain is great. If you don't really need three rows of seats, however, by all means, consider the Traverse's little brother, the Equinox.

Funny, I can think of at least two functional reasons to step into a Traverse instead of a minivan. First, there's its available all-wheel-drive. With the exception of the Toyota Sienna, no automaker sells a minivan with such a configuration in our market.

Had my second stint in the Traverse and I'll revise (somewhat) my earlier comments. First, on the interior: I very much like the STYLING of the dash in this car, and there are some specific features I like a LOT (see below), but I do take issue with the quality of the hard plastic facing on so much of the dash and door panels.
