We were driving back from San Francisco.
Stopped in Gilroy.
Went something like this.
I was in a store- and walked out- with a gentleman a few feet ahead of me.
As we walked back-- hes checking out my Traverse, walks past it- stops turns around and begins to look at the side/rear....

he sees that Im the owner and says.... Is this new? I had not seen this...Its very very nice!
I said- yeah- its based on the same platform as the Buick Enclave- and GMC acadia----
he said- Ive seen the Enclaves- theyre nice- but I dont like the headlight design-
He then walked around looking at the design- and said- well I like the lines on this one better.

We then parted ways-- he walked over to his shiny 735 BMW and drove off.

I've had several people come up to me and ask about it... what's surprising is that they know exactly what it is, they just want a closer look.

Not surprising....it's because Chevy is actually advertising it. As for the Enclave, I haven't seen an ad for quite some time. Saw an Acadia ad just the other day. It's just maddening that GM doesn't advertise a vehicle much past launch (usually....Acadia, the recent exception). However, when they DO put an ad on after the model has been out for a while, it's usually just to announce special rebates or finance/lease rates. I would like to see more ads explaining the features. Who cares if it's a repeat model, there might be someone who hasn't heard about it yet. However, FWIW...I think the new Traverse ads, with Howie Long, are the best...most memorable.

Im still getting looks from people.
a few days ago at Costco- as I walked to my car- I saw a lady walking to hers- but staring at mine....she then said... Is this your car?
I said yes...
she then said VERY NICE.... and continued to walk/stare...

This morning- a couple on a morning walk- waiting at a corner to cross--- the man- turned did a double take when he saw me approach.
I didnt want to stare- but he was lookin over the vehicle.

Someone I know- saw me pull up to a restaurant- when I walked up- she said-- wow- new Lexus?
I smiled...
I didnt know if she was serious about calling it a lexus :eyebrow:

I know what you mean!

I think the Traverse is the best looking of the "Lamda" platforms. I have gotten many looks on mine, and I have only had it 4 days....I had a parking lot stalker but he was to afraid to ask.

I happily sold my Jag for it, and our other car is a BMW. This is the first "American" car I have had since college when I bought my first car - a Grand AM (93' for those who are wondering).

Great design, superb ride, looks like GM hit a home run with this one.
