We had a 2018 Redline, got it 12/31/17. I say we HAD, until some idiot texting ran a red light and killed it for us. Thankfully the vehicle did what it was designed to do, it absorbed the impact, no physical injuries to my wife or myself, but it did damage our souls, we really loved that car. We ended up with 24,000 on it before it's demise. We had no major problems whatsoever, we did have few a little annoyances. We had taken it on numerous long road trips 2-3000 miles at a time, getting as high as 28 mpg average on some of trips. We had taken numerous day trips with 6 large adults, most 6 foot plus, I'm 6-5 and my son is 6-6, all fitting in comfortably, it was the perfect vehicle for us. We loved it so much we have a 2020 Redline now, a virtual twin to the previous one, there are few changes to the newer one, new interface layout on DIC in the instrument cluster and Imfomat screen, new HD cameras for surround view and more views, the wheel camera view is helpful to prevent kissing the curb with the wheels while parking, no USB port behind the screen, SD card slot and card at the lower USB ports, no more air shutters, be curious to see if that effects mileage at all.

8/17 Production redline over 22,000 miles and only problem was the shift lever switch defect which affects only 2018s. Otherwise a trouble free fun car to drive.

2018 Redline owner with over 30,000 kms. Did a long summer trip with over 10,000 kms across parts of Canada and US with no issues and averaged 8.4 litres per 100 km or 28 mpg. Haven't experienced the shift lever switch problem.

2019 LT3, just over 13,600 with no issues other than the paint. Took some time to get used to the Auto Stop, a 6 cylinder engine and the 9 speed transmission. Drove an 8 cylinder for 17 years.

I have a 2019 Traverse LT1 built in July 2018. It now has just under 17,000 miles and has been completely trouble free. I love the vehicle as a highway cruiser and we have twice taken it on trips from Texas to the upper midwest. I feel like it is a brilliant road trip vehicle. The engine and transmission seem especially well paired for interstate driving.



Literally the only thing I don't like about the vehicle is that the climate control system seems to "weird out" and randomly blow cold air after an hour or two of driving. It takes quite a bit of fiddling after that to get the temperature where you want it to be. I don't know if the system is supposed to work this way and we don't often take long enough trips for it to even happen, so I am just accepting it as normal for now.

2018 Premier AWD mfrd. 7/17, 22K+ miles. Great ride



Only maintenance other than oil filter was replacement of faulty shifter under TSB which affected only pre Dec. production '18s.
