GMC terrain; soccer mom luxury.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

When I originally got my GMC, I bought it due to having a little addition to our family. I always had driven small vehicles in the past, but this time I wanted a SUV but not too big. Purchasing my GMC terrain ended up being an amazing decision for my little family! It is extremely spacious, plenty of room for our two little ones. Also with the all black leather interior it makes cleaning up messes a breeze! It is the perfect family vehicle with plenty of space for everyone while still feeling luxurious. The heated seats and automatic car starter is definitely a bonus in the winter months, and for being a SUV it has pretty decent gas mileage. Overall, I couldn't be happier with our decision to purchase a GMC terrain.

Reasons to buy a GMC Terrain

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love my small terrain. It drives and looks great. I've driven it out of town several times and I had no problems. It gets great gas mileage. Handles curves and mountains very well. It is very nice inside too. Lots of legroom and a lot of room in the hatchback area, loaded suitcases, groceries and even lawn chairs with plenty of room for a lot of other things. This vehicle was well worth the money. I would recommend it to others. It is the convenience of both a car and truck so it is very convenient to have.

2013 GMC Terrain Heated seats

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

My vehicle runs smooth. I took a personal trip and drove from Louisiana to Destin, Florida. I filled my tank up right before I got on the interstate. Five hours later I arrived at my destination and was just under half a tank. I haven't had any problems with my vehicle. I keep my car well maintenance. I also have heated front seats which come in handy when you have lower back pain. I use mine very often as I have really bad back pains.

- Ashley D

The most comfortable SUV ever!

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

My favorite aspect of my SUV are the seats. Both the front two seats and the back bench are extremely comfortable. The SUV is really great on gas. I drive mainly highway miles with one hour and 15 minutes to work one way. It is fairly inexpensive to go into the shop as far as parts and labor. It takes a full synthetic oil compared to a blend which costs a lot more upon oil changes. Overall in excellent SUV especially for families.

- Valerie K

Great single family car!!

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

Within just a few months of purchasing my car we had a lot of problems! Basically the entire front end had to be replaced. Thankfully everything was covered by the warranty! It's been roughly 3 years since we've had any troubles with the vehicle! Runs and drives great. It's a great family car. Lots of legroom in the backseat. Also has plenty of room in the back for groceries and or strollers!

- Justin B

Spacious and smooth ride this car has lots of places to plug in devices.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love the way it drives. Since its all wheel drive you can speed up without a lag. However when you let off the gas you can get a little kick back. Lots of places to charge your phone or devices and love the Bluetooth option for music or talking to people. Looks small from the outside but feels huge on the inside. Lots of trunk space.

- Chelsea T

Overall Satisfied Customer

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I don't like that it doesn't have any AC vents in the back, I have had some issues with the drivetrain, the interior is really nice, mine is grey leather with black trim. It has Heated seats that are helpful in the wintertime. Overall I am very satisfied with the vehicle other than not having rear AC vents because I do have kids

- Jordan C

Love my 2013 GMC terrain.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

It has been a very reliable, comfortable vehicle. I've kept it well maintained. Only thing I would change is to add a third row of seats. It has all the features I need from heated seats, auxiliary cord jack, Bluetooth...And more. It is a nice size and has been very good on gas between in town miles to long road trips.

- Kelly M

Looks sharp and rides smooth.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love my terrain. It is extremely comfortable, has luxurious seating, easily see your surroundings. Lots of cargo space and looks like you spent more than you actually did. Rides smooth and came with a Bose stereo system. Bought as a second owner in 2015 and have never looked back. Can't wait for my next new terrain!

- Tina G

One of the best vehicles I've owned

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

This vehicle hasn't given me a minutes trouble. I've put 50k miles on it in the past year with no problems. It gets great gas mileage and the features it comes with work flawlessly. The backup camera is a must have for the wife. It comes in great checking to insure children and animals aren't in blind spots backing up

- Nicholas T

I love my terrain it is a great fit.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love the lift tailgate. It is a very comfortable size for me and my family. With the fold down seats, I can carry quite a bit of stuff. Small dressers to critters, all fit. Drink holders for four is nice. Gas mileage is also great for the size. I like not having to climb up to get in or need help getting out.

The GMC Terrain is a good reliable vehicle

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love my 2013 GMC Terrain. I have taken the vehicle across the country multiple times, with never an issue, and great gas mileage. Besides keeping up with regular maintenance I have not had to have it at a mechanic's shop for any reason. It is roomy and comfortable, and I am glad I made the purchase.

- Mitchell M

Silver gem ! I love the two tone leather inside with red trim.

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

I love my vehicle the gas is great. Very comfortable for a family to drive in. The only thing I can say I want to change is I wish it had more power in the engine. Besides this is an amazing vehicle and I would buy another one in a heartbeat. Thank you GMC for making this great vehicle for my family.

- Ana N

The car is great! Only one issue but was resolved quickly!

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

Love the vehicle not really much to complain on other than when I first got it the car would stall out if I was going under 10 mph but it got fixed. It now Runs great engine is good, ac works good everything is amazing, had the car almost a year now and nothing wrong so far.

GMC Terrain Great Family Car

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

This car does great on gas mileage, especially for long trips. It is fairly comfortable and very spacious! We have not had many issues with the vehicle. Oil consumption is normal, we go about every 5000 miles before we change it. Fits a car seat great! Very good family car.

- Megan S

2013 GMC Terrain SLT - Love It

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

No problems thus far! Super reliable. Love how spacious it is! The back seat is super comfortable, even for my 6+ foot father. The back has plenty of room for storage. I love the red stitching and two tone black and white leather. V6 engine has great get up and go power.

- Alyssa J

GMC Terrain too many issues to be worth it

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

The car needed new pistons after 5 years which luckily was 4 days before my warranty expired but now it is leaking oil. Have had constant issues with the brakes and rotors. Would never get a 4 cylinder vehicle again. The interior is fine and I do like the look of it

- Kelly M

Great family SUV, lots of power

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

Love this car for my family of 4. Back seats are very spacious. V6 is great and great in the snow. I really like the black leather and all of the features that come along with the SLT. I would definitely buy another terrain. It's the best SUV in my opinion.

- Jamie P

White GMC 4 door terrain. It's a nice ride with a touchscreen radio and cruise c

2013 GMC Terrain SLT

Feels like it is extremely ragged out constantly having to change the oil. Road smooth for the first couple of months but now does not ride smooth at all. Headlights constantly go out. It's a dependable vehicle just would not mind it wearing down so fast.
