Most reliable car I owned.

This car meet all of my needs. And I enjoy it so much I can't stop talking about it. My family loves the car and it takes me where I need to go.


Feels like quality, size and economy!

Car has all the options we wanted and a price we could afford. Looks great, and seems like a great deal for us. So far, driving it is fun!


Amazing vehicle so far!

I absolutely love the vehicle so far. I was spoiled going from my new Honda Accord EXL and the features that came with it, but the terrain has been great! The only two things I REALLY miss and wish that the 2017 terrain LTZ came with is 1) the push to start engine and 2) the passenger side mirror camera. I got very used to these in my 2015 accord. Otherwise, the terrain is fabulous, stylish, and WELL worth the price!


I wanted a SUV with all the features I need.

I like the way I feel while driving it. I used to own a Chevrolet Avalanche, I wanted an SUV, but I wanted a sturdy vehicle with the name recognition of GMC. I got comfort and features far above what I had been used to.


Does anyone really read this? Lol

I originally had a 2015 terrain which was AWD and loved it. After leasing my current 2017 Terrain - which is FWD -I feel the car is tailored for a man. The finger holds on the steering wheel, for example, are sized for a man - my hand just doesn’t grip properly. My next vehicle I would like to find something that rides a little less like a “truck” and the Bluetooth has never worked properly which was used by Gavin as a selling point.


Annoying noise from plastic rear bumper on highway

Wish more attention was given to comfort of cooling and heating rear passenger seating. No rear vents in back at all. This was overlooked during my purchased but became very apparent when I was a back set rider during a hot summer day being transported home from surgery.


At age 55 my first ever new vehicle

I've had midsize SUV's before and I like the larger door size, cargo space, and so forth. So the Terrain seemed to be a logical model to test, and I was impressed with the test drive and bought it. After a year I've been pretty happy with it but a couple of things stand out. The back seat does not fold flat to increase cargo space and this seems to be kind of ridiculous and to spoil the whole idea. And recently I had to have the fuel pump replaced under warranty, because of using E85 fuel, which the service manager told me is not good for the fuel systems despite this being a flex-fuel vehicle. The other thing is that while I was happy with the 4-cylinder engine at first, I now wish I'd opted for the V6 as the car is kind of out of its element in highway driving. Don't get me wrong, it will get you there, but my foot is on the floor a lot more often than I'd prefer. If I trade this one off in the next few years I'll definitely opt for the V6. Overall I am very pleased with it.


Great purchase, reliable and affordable!

This car is amazing! Drives smooth, has a lot of room, comfortable and is great on gas as well! The car is beautiful and I recommend 10/10!


Great Car

The car is perfect for starting my new family. Easily fits 5 and has plenty of room for a car seat. Sleek and stylish exterior.


Great value, comfort and reliability

The SUV has everything we need and a very comfortable ride. I think this vehicle has great value and will be very reliable. My family loves it and we are all very happy with our 2017 GMC Terrian.
