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


Review

I owned this suv for about 3 years and was one of the best cars I’ve ever owned. Never once took it to the dealer for any problems other than oil changes and tire rotations. Fuel economy was rather good. The car lacked acceration and the gears were pretty bad going up hills it would always shift into a lower gear going up hills. Economy mode was pretty worthless on it. The inside technology was ok in it. The backup camera and larger center sceeen was fantastic. The on board dash computer provided good info. The worst thing about the technology was not being able to listen to music through Bluetooth. That was a huge miss. The ride was always nice and smoothe and quiet. I towed a 18 ft center console boat with it. And it struggled a bit but I was never worried about it not making it up the boat ramp

Review

Had great fuel mileage, AC ok at best, visibility on passenger side just Ok Around 75.000 started using some oil between changes, by 95.000 using several quarts between changes and mileage dropped off, buy 6 miles per gallon. Dealer told me the oil consumption was normal. Umm no its not. eventually a service bulletin issued and warranty extended to 120,000. Was at 121 and change so not covered. Now at 133,000 timing chain issues, oil consumption issues and blew rear main seal do to PVC system freezing shut. All are VERY well known problems. Oil changes per meter or sooner, 90 % highway miles. Now what to do with it. New engine? Donate it to not for profit? Junk it? Nobody will give me anything for it on trade I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND TO BUY A USED ONE!!!!!

The fuel mileage of this vehicle is very incorrect. Rated at 22/32. The best I can get is 22 on the road.

Review

Bought one only 5 years old, biggest lemon I've ever ever bought! Burns oil like crazy because of GMs very poorly designed motor, left me stranded 200 miles away from home because GM didn't mention to NOT drive these things in the cold because a pcv valve freezes therefore blowing my rear main seal which is an 11 hr job. Window don't roll up without you yanking them up by hand. When you call GM to ask if they can help you with any problems the person on the other line that cant hardly even speak English replies "your vin doesn't match up with the plant that had flaws" I was a GM guy, no longer
