2010 GMC Terrain: Not My Cuppa Crossover
September 23, 2010
The 2009 GMC Terrain has been in our test fleet for nine months, and I can probably count the number of times I've driven it on one hand. Maybe even just one thumb and index finger.
Little seat time in a crossover, SUV or minivan is unusual for me, especially since family vehicles like these best suit my real life. Sure, would love to drive the Dodge Viper more often, but with regular school carpools, it's just not happenin'.
Somehow I've managed to mostly avoid the Terrain, and after driving it last night I remembered why.
I simply don't like it.
I can't find a comfortable seating position, the rear seat seems small, and there's so many flippin' buttons and shades of red discoing across the dash, it leaves me seeing, well, shades of red.
I'd prefer to spend more money and trade-up to the Acadia.
