2010 GMC Terrain: Backing Up? Suspenders And a Belt. And Double-Sided Tape.

Of course our long-term 2010 GMC Terrain has a useful back-up camera with guidelines and proximity zones. But in addition to the camera, our Terrain also has back-up warning lights above the rear window.

The first LED is lit as you approach the object. Get closer and the 2nd LED also illuminates orange. The 3rd LED lights up red when you are in near contact distance with that other car. Or reinforced concrete load-bearing garage pillar.

Topping off this Trifecta is parking sonar with an auditory alert. Some may find all this too much, but it's fine for me: I hate backing up big vehicles in tight confines.

So if you back into something in the Terrain, perhaps you were simultaneously updating your Facebook or Twitter status.
