Never felt any pressured to buy. The Staff was kind, professional and helpful. I would recommend anyone looking to buy a new or used vehicle to stop here first.
Great truck, not enough power for me
by Jake45daniel from Akron, oh

I loved this truck, looked great, drove great. Only downfall was the 4.8 l motor. Drove excellent by itself but as soon as you hooked a trailer up it lagged down pretty bad. I only pulled a trailer on occasion and it was a 7x14 enclosed which shouldn’t have been too heavy for the truck. Fuel mileage was also about 12-14 on average which i thought was terrible compared to the 5.3. It was very reliable and never gave me any issues, but it just wasn’t what I needed at the time.
Brandon was patient, thorough, informative, personable, and not pushy at all throughout my entire buying process. Not for one minute did I feel pressured into upgrading this or that until I had made my decision on an item. He brought joy and personality to the information he presented me with so that I was able to make the most informed and knowledgeable decision in a vehicle that I could have possibly made. All the staff were genuinely excited for my purchase and what it meant for me and reinforced that if I had any issues, questions, or concerns that I could contact them at any time.
Two week review
by SC_Trucker from Fountain Inn, SC

I have only owned my 2016 GMC Terrain Denali v6 for two weeks now but I absolutely love it! It has a comfortable ride and plenty of room for 4 adults. It can hold 5 people, but to get three in the back I'd think they would have to be slimmer adults, or kids, to sit comfortably. The middle console is really deep, up to your elbow deep. I'm tall and with the seat back you have to reach for the door controls. I'm constantly letting down the back window by mistake when I'm trying to let down the driver side window. The remote start and heated seats are wonderful on cold days! There is a slight vibration when turning the wheel from park. I took it to a dealership where they told me this is a known issue with the V6 Terrain (the 4 cylinder doesn't have this issue apparently). Other than that, so far so good! It has back up camera, blind spot monitoring, lane departure warning, collision warning with brake assist and other safety features. My other vehicle is almost 15 years old so it's taking me a while to get used to all this new technology!
From start to the end, the individual attention received was fantastic. They have truly great customer service. My issue was not resolved, but they sure did give it their all.
Love the GMC brand

I’ve had the vehicle for a short while. Thus far it’s smooth sailing except for the Driver’s side seat warmer.
We’ll see how much of pain in the patootskie it is to get it rectified but overall I’m happy with the vehicle.
I’ve received a lot of compliments on it and am proud of the image it portrays for my General Contracting company.
Had to have Tire Pressure Monitor replaced on a car we had for our daughter in Florida. They fit me in the day before we left and also told me there was a recall they'd fix also. In less than 2 hours, the car was fixed and ready to go. This was an A-1 experience in my book. Knowing our daughter's car is safe again makes these parents happy. Thank you Polar Chev!
This is a great truck!

I own the 6.2L 1500 Sierra and I love it. Although I only get 12.7mpg, the power makes up for it. I feel as though I could do anything necessary, and if the apocalypse came, it would keep me alive easily! It looks great inside and out, and I don't have to worry about any engine issues.

First time ever buying a BRAND new car and Gregory "Mac"McAllister knew exactly what I want and needed! I brought a used car from here a few years back...and ended up working with my old sales men, James...who know handled my financing!!!
It was just an awesome and EASY experience!!!!

Overall I really like it and enjoy it but the little things annoy me terribly. Re: cracks in dash and rear door window motors and a/c relay, when they know something is bad and put it in anyway. I think of the challenger space craft??
Great experience !! Our salesman Gary insured all of my needs were met and that I was satisfied . All the staff was pleasant and currtious. Would recommend them on all levels... Great dealer with great price!!
Will be my next purchase
by CellerRat from Fremont ohio

I like the look. Was looking at an AWD model. 20-30mpg going from a 12mpg truck. I recommend the leather interior quality seemed better than cloth for sure
They were awesome. Especial my finance guy (Bob Flinn). He was the one that made it truly a great experience.
Staff were all professional and nice.
Will definitely buy next car here.
Very comfortable but MPG is terrible.
by DMJ60 from Endicott, NY

Very comfortable. Many usb, 12v receptacles. Very large storage space. Nice being a bit higher than other vehicles. Rear window tint is great for night driving. But only 14.0 MPG.. Mileage is way worse than expected.
Everyone at the dealership is so kind and friendly
by Mike & Pam from Centuria, WI

Everyone at the dealership is so kind and friendly. We have never had such a good experience purchasing and getting service work done as we have at Whitaker Buick! So glad that Josh made such a good impression when he approached us in the lot.
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.
I really felt good about this experience. In the past car purchases, I never felt really good about the experience, but this time was different. Paul made me feel at home and everyone at the dealership was similar. Very low-key low pressure atmosphere. Just a bunch of folks trying to genuinely help people find a good vehicle at a decent price. This is my first GMC. I am very excited and pleased with it.
Another dud from General Motors
by Nursemel131 from Glenburn, ME
January 5, 2019
This vehicle from the start had issues. At 2,000 miles the auto stop feature failed and I was stuck in the middle of an intersection. I had to turn the vehicle off and restart it to get the engine to re-engage. Which then I got pulled over from a police officer because I hesitated too long at the intersection. The dealership had it for 1.5 weeks as it needed a new battery and cam shaft cylinoids. The local dealership had been great but GM directly is horrible. It now has radio software issues that I have had it in now twice for it and still isn't working properly. I had a 2017 Acadia before this one that was so unsafe GM ended up buying back from me. I will buy from the dealership again but I will never ever purchase anything from General Motors again.
Dan, our sales guy was honest, personable and worked hard to find us a car that we would love. This was the first car buying experience we've had where I appreciated the salesperson and wanted to return to give him my business. The finance person, however was somewhat rude. After working so hard with Dan to get the car we wanted as close to our budget as possible, and then making a decision to go over our budget to get the car, when we got in to the finance dept office and there had been an error, he acted like we were trying to work him for a better deal because we were upset the price went up by another $5. References to knowing how much we make, and to go ahead and 'try to fool the next guy' because he wasn't buying that $5-20 a month would matter to us were unprofessional and rude. When quoted a price on Saturday and being told it would be more money on Wednesday when I came back to sign the paperwork you already have not met my expectations, so yes I will say no when you try to get me to purchase add ons, even if I could afford it. Congrats to Dan for being so great I didn't walk out when another team member insulted us, because I didn't want him to a lose the sale.
Annoying noise from plastic rear bumper on highway
by Retirement Purchaser from Memphis, Tn
November 7, 2018
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.
Price on the windshield sticker did not match the price on cars.com. Difference in price was over $500.
At age 55 my first ever new vehicle
by Denny the old grump from Brazil, IN

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.
As always, it was perfect! They are so helpful and courteous.
Just purchased a sle off road.
by Mark from Kendall NY
January 2, 2019
It was love at first sight. Have only put 200 miles on it but I have felt no issues with the 8 speed trans. Shifts smoothly and timely. The V-6 has plenty of power and tows the same weight as my old 09 Silverado 4x4. I'm hoping this will be a long lasting truck. Living in NY I made sure to get undercoating and rust proofing and a 100k warranty
Always treated great and I know my Enclave is getting quality service. All of the people are friendly and willing to answer any questions. With an hour drive to your dealership, from my house, there are others closer but I know I can't get any better service.
Love this truck
by Jeanasfun from La Crosse, WI
December 26, 2018
Overall this truck is fantastic and very comfortable. The only thing I don't like is the 6 speed transmission, but you can't get away from that anymore in any truck. The reasoning I'm sure is to get better mileage, but it only really helps on the highway. In town they just seem to shift up too fast so if you need to get on it, there is a bit of delay and it feels cumbersome. Some have 8 or more gears now and I can't even imagine how they respond. I'd prefer to suffer the mileage on the highway to go back or a 4 speed transmission. I love the step in the bumper to get in the back as well as the lighting in the truck bed. Really everything else on this truck is beautiful.
My husband bought the Buick Enclave last year and was very satisfied with the service and buying process at Whitaker Buick GMC in Forest Lake. So, this month when I decided to buy a new vehicle I chose the Encore. I was a little skeptical about the small size but after driving it now for less than two weeks, I'm loving it--even without the home link option. The back seats fold down into a large enough area for our two big Labs so that's a plus. It rides and handles beautifully and has enough power to pass when needed. We will definitely buy from Whitaker Buick GMC again.
A very comfortable, quiet ride.
by GregO27 from Sussex,WI
December 26, 2018
Very nice truck. Comfortable, quiet, and very good gas mileage for a V8 engine. Have not had any service problems since owning, which is 34000 miles.
I am hearing impaired so using the phone is difficult at best. We are now on our second vehicle from Whitaker and couldn't be happier. The salesman I deal with and the service department are willing to text or email me. Probably doesn't sound like a big deal but it is to me. Always have good service, prompt and pleasant. They will get my business from here on out.
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!
Very professional, respectful, consultative/not pushy, don't need to be a negotiator to get a good/fair deal. It was an enjoyable experience and a dealer I am recommending to my friends.
The 4 cylinder is a low maintenance SUV
by Serginho from Killeen
December 31, 2018
The past 4 years with this vehicle have been reliable. I've been able to save gas while having the space to move around with family or to other cities, the interface is simple and straight forward, so knowing when a oil change is coming to maintain the vehicle to good performance helped me a lot.
The power steering is electronic so there is no need to check for fluids there, the wheel is always soft and easy to drive.
Purchased a 2019 Pacifica. The sales person Aaron and finance manager Ryan were fantastic. They are both extremely customer focused and did not use any pressure tactics. Always have had great service from this dealership
The best truck I ever owned
by Kennyrooh from Collinsville, Illinois
January 3, 2019
My 2017 GMC Sierra SLT is the best truck I ever owned. The headlights are very bright making it easier to see at night with the automatic highbeams. The Bose radio has excellent sound. I average 20 miles to a gallon in the city. The seats are very comfortable and the back seat in the crew cab has plenty of room for adults. The interior is very quite. The parking sensors and lane guidance system work very well. Yes, I love this truck.
