Should I Buy the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse?
The Traverse's high-quality, spacious interior, plus a comfortable ride and standard backup camera, make the Traverse a standout in the segment, but its touchscreen is too small, and some dash buttons have been replaced by a frustrating touch-sensitive panel. A large turning circle may also make maneuvering a bit difficult.
