My wife and I are expecting our first born in about six weeks, and her 2013 Sentra just isn't the most desirable car for a car seat, short family road trips, etc. I have a Gm top up offer of $2,000 expiring end of feb so we decided to stop into a local Chevy dealer and see how she liked the Traverse. From looking online we where pretty sold on the 1Lt all star package with the sunroof but there is one deal breaker. It seems like all 1lt all stars have the brown wood around the touch screen and cup holders. I could care less and it isn't a deal breaker for me, but my wife literally refuses to buy a car with the terrible fake wood. Without a alternative to changing this out we will probably be purchasing the new 2014 highlander in the XLE trim, but the traverse is cheaper and seems a little bit roomier. We did see one online that has the dark gray wood style they use in the 2014 Malibu , I will attempt to attach pictures. How much would it realistically cost a dealer to order the different colored trim and swap it out. I didn't feel like arguing with our salesman but he basically said it was crazy we wanted it changed and would cost $1,000. I could care less but happy wife happy life. Thanks in advance. Also any other feedback about the traverse? We plan on doing the front wheel drive version we live in the Chicago suburbs but have always been fine with front wheel drive. We are hoping it will be a nice family
Car we can keep for 3-8 years and pay off. Any issues? Or other vehicles we should look at. We are a little pro Toyota but the traverse / Acadia seem like nice packages/ with the top up and lease conquest deal we can get the traverse pretty loaded MSRP around $38,500 I believe for around $31,400. Would be a good deal.
