The GMC terrain makes a bitchin mom car.

I bought a used GMC terrain from the dealership and so far I have really enjoyed the vehicle. It gets fairly decent gas mileage about 24 mpg on average. Has nice leather seats that fold up in the back so there is plenty of room for large grocery runs etc. The DVD players in the back seat are a bonus for the little ones in the back, which both come with wireless headphones. I haven't had any big issues with my car since purchasing. I have only had minor things to repair like changing filters and headlights which goes along with owning any car:) overall, the GMC terrain is a great vehicle.

It has been a reliable form of transportation.

I have had my vehicle for a year and a half, the problems I have had with it are the air conditioner does not seem to work and quit working. The door actuator had to be replaced. The part is like a shutter which switches the hot to the cold. The car seems to burn oil so I need to get an oil change before it is actually due for a change. There is one thing I don't like about the backup camera, it is in the rearview mirror and it is very hard to get used to. The car does drive nice down the road, the seating is good for a family.

The GMC terrain is reliable and dependable, and is easy to maintain.

There have been no major problems with my car. The only major purchase I have had to make was to replace the tires, everything else has been running fine. It is 4-cylinder engine is definitely not as powerful as other cares I have driven, but it is incredibly efficient and gets me where I need to be. The seats are very comfortable, and driving it feels nice. The stereo and XM radio option are also very enjoyable. It handles very well in the snow as well, and I have not had any issues with losing traction or skidding.
