I do not know why people want "SUVs" (crossovers) instead of minivans or why my sister felt she needed a vehicle with three rows for two children, but she complains that the 17/24 rating of her Traverse LT is unrealistic. Well, seven people reporting to EPA.gov would agree with her, their average is something like 18.6, and most of forty-one people reporting to Fuelly should also agree with her, the average there is 16.8. The lowest is 12.5, there are a few in the 20 - 21 range, one person claiming 30, and this lunatic: Traverse (Chevrolet Traverse) | Fuelly

Allegedly obtaining over 50 MPG in a 5,000-pound vehicle that is as tall as my brother-in-law.

I hope that his data is thrown out as an outlier or just a liar.

We had a station wagon with four kids and survived, but who still makes station wagons?

I do not know that my sister would consider a three-row Prius if Toyota ever sold one here, but hopefully she would reconsider purchasing another Chevrolet.

It has not been reliable.
