Hello,

Been reading on here for a little bit, and finally decided to join up. Looks like you have a good group of people on here, looking forward to learning more about our exciting new crossover. My wife and I just purchased our first "New Car" last Tuesday - Traverse 2LT AWD SUMMIT WHITE! We are very excited and love it so far, no complaints what so ever. Only have a few hundred miles on it, but we are planning a trip for next week to SC. So we will get a good feel for the car from that. I think after that trip I will be getting the first oil change and switching over to the Mobil 1 Full Synthetic.

Anyways nice to meet you all.

Only thing I have to say is that its kinda weird how easy the thing will roll backwards when in drive. I was on a very slight grade and it still crept backwards, same thing in reverse. Guess that is just something I will have to get used to....

It's like it has a "stall " converter ...you need to get the rpm up before it hooks up. Can be annoying if you're not being careful.

OK, well I was able to manage 20.2 MPG on our trip from Pittsburgh PA to Georgetown SC.
I will let you know how she does on the way home.

MOTRAIN, I am also a Pittsburgh guy and I'm curious to see what kind of MPGs you get just driving around home on the hilly roads. Go to the "AWD guys. MPG?" thread and read all of my [email protected]$ing about the crappy MPGs we get. If you can give me a feel for what you are getting and it's much better than what we get, then I think I might take mine back to the dealer to have it checked out. Not to scare you or anything but we average anywhere from 15-18 MPG on our hilly, country roads out here in Upper Burrell. Good luck!
