OK class. We've got a lot of ground to cover today. However, instead of ground, let's make that a lot of "terrain to cover," as in the 2010 GMC Terrain crossover, today's test vehicle.The Terrain is the GMC version of the Chevrolet Equinox. Given the proliferation of new models and the fact GMC models are siblings of other General Motors, it takes time for new models to establish... Read full review for the 2010 GMC Terrain

We really love this vehicle. Bought in Sept 09 one of the first to do so. It has easily lived up to our expectations. The AWD is great in the winter going through heavy wet snow up hills with no probl... Read Full Review

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
