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 problems. Only area not a 5 is the gas mileage which has continued to improve. Have the 4 cylinder and get a combined 26 with a 50/50 mix. Took it on a 1200 mile trip with almost ideal conditions at 70MPH on a interstate hwy and got 29 MPG. The interior space is great. The rear seats slide back to give extra leg room if needed. All in all the perfect family of 4 SUV.

Absolutely loved my Terrain. I had it for over 2 years and 27000 miles. Averaged around 28 mpg with Ecoboost, lots of cruise control, and light acceleration and braking. Lots of interior room too... Loved the adjustable back seat, spacious "trunk"' and interior storage compartments. We had to trade it in for a 7 person wagon though. Would have loved to have kept the Terrain and driven it until the wheels feel off... May be taken awhile though, we didn't have a single mechanical issue.

Ordered and purchased the car after much research and comparison with other brands and models. Have driven it about 1k so far and am thoroughly enjoying the space, ride, interior features and overall comfort. Use it for both highway and local driving and am averaging about 27mpg thus far. Expect this to improve. 4L engine not as peppy but I am in no hurry and appreciate the mileage savings.

I purchased our 2011 GMC Terrain SLE as we needed more interior room with our daughter's car seat and storage when we went on trips. So far I have loved this car. We have the 4 banger which is good on gas mileage, avg 25 city and highway so far after 1600 miles. The standard features that come with the base model are awesome considering that other manufactures are charging 30K+ for theirs and the Terrain starts at 24,900 which is what we paid. The transmission takes a little getting used to but once you do, you realize that it's quicker than you originally thought. The seats could be a little more comfortable but the automatic lumbar support helped a lot on a recent 8 hour trip. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a fuel efficient, spacey SUV crossover.

I'm a tough critic and have been very please with this CUV (car, truck, SUV, crossover?). Excellent styling inside and out, fantastic handling, great mpg for its size/weight, and a good value for the money. I am averaging about 24 MPG overall so far at 3k miles with the I4 AWD and that is probably 70% interstate coomuting and 30% mixed city/suburban driving. My other vehicle is a Tahoe and the Terrain is very different from the standpoint of how it uses its HP based on the fuel saving 6 speed transmission, but that is to be expected. The Terrain hesitates more when you punch the gas. I appreciate the change from about 15.5 avg MPG commuting in the Tahoe vs. the 24 MPG avg I am getting now and I understand that my MPG should improve a bit as the new engine gets broken in. I test drove a couple Ford Escapes and the Terrain is definitely superior, even for the extra cost. I have had no problems with it yet, but my fingers are crossed of course since it is the first model year for this new vehicle.

Excellent vehicle! GMC has created a winner! Our gas mileage has been quite good - we have not taken it on a trip but consistantly get 22 to 23 MPG around the local area with the V6 engine. The interior is well appointed, seats are quite comfortable and we have not found a single thing in or on the car that has caused a problem. We currently have almost 5000 miles on our Terrain and simply love everthing about the vehicle. All of the safety features combined with On Star gives us a great deal of comfort while driving our Terrain. The quality of the workmanship is excellent - great suv, reasonably priced for all of the features that are standard - a great value and fun to drive!

In December, I started looking for a reliable used GMC terrain. This was the first time using Cars.com. I could not be happier with my decision. The choices presented to me were within the criteria I requested. The choices were well detailed. Through cars.com, I am now the proud owner of a 2010 GMC Terrain.
