Like the title states the wife is wanting a newer vehicle. She is currently driving a 2009 Toyota Corolla that has served her well. With us now having 2 sons she is wanting something bigger. She is currently looking at the 2017/18 Chevy Traverse/Acadia. She wants something with 3rd row seating but nothing big like the Yukon/Tahoe. She is also trying to keep it under $24000.

After researching the Traverse, I see a lot of people saying to steer clear. most of those are referring to a bad timing chain set up. It looks like the 2017s and newer have fixed that issue. Are there any other reasons to not buy one? Is there something else you that you would look at the may work with her request?

Thanks for any input.
