It saved my life
January 7, 2019
I bought the 2018 Traverse High Country within weeks of its release, and I loved it! It’s our family car - I have a Mercedes convertible for pleasure, but found myself driving the Traverse over the Mercedes for its comfort. My whole family loved it, and my colleagues were always impressed by it - not expecting it to be so nice for a Chevy (compared to a Luxury brand).
A week ago, an oncoming car came across the center line in a 55mph zone and hit us head-on. I blacked out for a few moments on impact, but the car’s safety features performed wonderfully. All of the airbags deployed before we came to a rest at the opposite guardrail. I have a concussion (I was driver), but my husband and two little boys have only sore chests from the seatbelt. The car that hit us split in two and the driver had to be extracted using jaws of life. The Traverse was a total loss, but we are all okay.
I loved that Traverse so much that I bought the exact same one as a 2019 just today to replace it, even after doing all of the research AGAIN. I considered it against much more expensive models like the Tesla Model X, the Mercedes, the Volvo, and others. At the end of the day, for the space and the tech features, I found the $55K price tag to be a bargain compared to the luxury brands. I love this car.
