Poor Gas Mileage

2011 GMC Terrain SLE-1 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


This base Terrain with a 4 cylinder and no options is rated at 32MPG highway but actually gets 25 highway in ECO mode, which inhibts performance.
It's worse otherwise.
Driven on mostly level roads in Florida, I don't understand.
The dealer in Marianna, FL was notified but didn't even bother to schedule a service visit.

Best Features

Good looking vehicle, with a good amount of space. These come standard with fog lights, power lumbar and a back-up camera, but rear visibility is still not great. After 6,000 miles we're still getting used to it.

Worst Features

Visibility could be better, but room is good and the seats are relatively comfortable, although I must admit the seats are more comfortable in our little Chevy Cobalt. It also has a better stereo, power door locks in both front doors (the Terrain only has one switch in the middle of the dash), and the Cobalt's headlights come on with the wipers. Not offered in the Terrain. Keep in mind I'm comparing GM's cheapest american built sedan to the Terrain....
