7 DAYS WITH MY CHEVY TRAVERSE LOAN @chevytristate @GM @districtdrive

23 Jun

When I attended the Getting Gorgeous event in April 2103 I never thought I might be taking home a car. Well I sort of did but not on that day. There was a Chevy booth called “#Chevy’s Ultimate Road Trip” at the event and anyone could sign up to compete for a week loan a Chevy Traverse. What did you have to do? Whoever could pack the back of the trunk with beach gear the fastest would not only keep the items that you packed the trunk with which included, beach chairs, beach umbrella, towels, mats, water, Gatorade, loads of sunscreen, coffee mug, cooler, etc but also get the kids to a week loaner of a Chevy Traverse 2013. I decided to go for it. A person in front of me had just finished in about 1 minute and some change. As they were setting up for me I took a look at what I was packing and went for it. All I know is everything happened so fast because he said I finished in under 38 seconds and I didn’t know I could move like that. Lol. My daughter and another mommy blogger @JeanetteNYC were there cheering me on. I prayed no one could beat that score and when I received the email saying I won I was very, very happy.

They said I could choose any month Monday though Friday so they could drop it off to me and the car had to stay within the northeast region. Nothing north of Maine or south of Virginia. That was no problem at all. I decided to get the Traverse on June 14th a Friday and when the driver pulled up I was in Chevy heaven. That was a busy month and I knew it would definitely come in handy. My daughter’s Birthday and Graduation was that month. My son also had his Ballroom Competition at different sites so we had to travel a lot. Hubby and I along with my cousins and her hubby took a trip to City Island for some long awaited seafood. We did a lot of local traveling but it beat the trains and buses any day. We also enjoyed the Museum Mile festival in NY, The Pier, and Central Park with the kids. I wish I could have traveled to Virginia to visit family but we couldn’t do it this time. I also wanted to go to Washington D.C. for an event but the car had to be picked up on that day.

Everyone that rode in the Traverse my kids, hubby, cousins, mother, sister, neighbor, and I of course loved everything about it. I personally loved the warning beep on the mirrors when a car or person is near that blind spot feature was very helpful. There is so much room in the car and seats 7 people which was just right for my family. I also enjoyed the 6.5″ color touch screen with a rear vision camera that helped me spot obstacles that I’m sure I would have missed. The mirror automatically dropped down to show me the ground which was awesome when parking in reverse. It has a 3.6L V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission which provided smooth shifting and quiet acceleration It felt like I was driving on a cloud. The touch screen navigation system came in handy and the air conditioner kept us cool even though it wasn’t needed that much because some of the days were actually cool. My kids loved their own personal seats. There was a dvd player but we didn’t use it and loved the 12 cup holders which came in handy for my coffee, water and all the kids drinks. Lots of cargo space. 19 MPG city and 24 MPG highway. My sister enjoyed the cooled seats for the front passenger and driver. The color I received was the Crystal Red Tintcoat which was beautiful and stood out on my block.

The Traverse has everything I’m looking for in a safe, reliable SUV.
It also has 6 air bags and an On Star advisor.
My family and I were definitely safe while traveling and this is what I see in our future.
We miss the Traverse and hope to review lots more soon.
Thank you to @Chevytristate @Chevy @DistrictDrive @GM
These opinions are my own and I was given the Chevy Traverse as a loan from a competition I won through “Chevy’s Ultimate Road Trip”.
Enjoy the pictures.

    My sister (@carseatdancers) bought that car after I learned about it from a Momtrends event. She is so happy with her purchase.

      I wish I could afford to purchase one as well especially after how smooth it is and family friendly. Love the room and all the features.
