Terrain Problems

2012 GMC Terrain SLE-1 4dr SUV AWD (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


I bought my new terrain in May 2012 after just having it a short time the navigation screen would go very dim and then bright.
I took it to dealership more than once, they did not know why or how to fix it after trying several times.

I contacted GMC corporate about the problem. It is still not fixed. I stopped taking it to dealership because if they can't fix it why take it in.

Now I have another problem. My ck engine light coming on. Took it to dealership, it is a random misfire, they don't know why or how to fix it. It's in there for 2nd time in one wk

I now have the gen mgr involved- I refuse to get stuck with a lemon. I have a loaner vehicle

Best Features

Exterior looks great. Love the interior. Car very classy looking.

Worst Features

I've been doing some internet research and I have found that I'm not the only person that is or has had problems with the ck engine light coming on. People have had their terrains in the shop more times than me and are still having the ck eng light come on. I suggest GMC recall these vehicles and fix the problem. To many people are having the same problem When I get the car back I will be contacting GMC if my light comes back on. I've had many new cars and this is the first one that I've ever had a problem with.
