Great overall vehicle for great handling in winter conditions.

2016 GMC Terrain SL

I really love my GMC Terrain. It handles great on snowy roads in winter. It is all wheel drive. It has plenty of room on the inside for my needs. Front and back seats. Back seats let down for plenty of space for groceries or carrying things around. No major blind spots. I love the back up camera and sensors. Very helpful when in tight spaces and parking areas. Sensors beep to tell you if you are close to object. Heated seats work great. Touch screen monitor with navigational system works great. Overall great vehicle.

Adorable and reliable SUV

2016 GMC Terrain SL

I got the standard model, but had leather seats added. The dealership did a really good job on putting in the new seats. Some of the features I really enjoy are the back up camera with park assist, my car tells me when I need to get an oil change. It is eco friendly, but I'm not completely sure it makes a difference on gas. It has one power set which is nice. The tuck is decently sized. I have two growing children and the back seat has decent leg room.

GMC Terrain the SUV that has it all!

2016 GMC Terrain SL

The terrain is a great car when starting a family. One extremely nice feature that is the whole back seat can be moved forward or backwards. For instance if you driving and you have a screaming child in the backseat it is much easier to reach over and grab that pacifier and put it back in their mouth to enjoy the rest of the drive. Gas mileage is very good for an SUV. Very spacious and sleek designs.

- Justin K

Excellent midsize SUV with room for the family, dog, and then some.

2016 GMC Terrain SL

I have had no mechanical problems with my vehicle as of yet. It performs well in all weather. The vehicle is very comfortable, adequate legroom in back seat which is adjustable to provide more storage dock in the rear when rear seat leg room is not needed. Back seats fold in two parts, however with a car seat installed, even the divided seat cannot be folded.

Great family vehicle! Have never had any issues!

2016 GMC Terrain SL

I have had the vehicle over a year with no issues. Lots of room for the kids with lots of trunk space. With regular maintenance I would say it's a great vehicle for a family. This is my first vehicle that I had taken a loan out on and it is well worth it. We have gone on several family vacations with absolutely no issues!

- Regan S

Turnbull's love of GMC Terrains.

2016 GMC Terrain SL

Have experienced various problems with locking the car doors. On two occasions the car would not lock manually or with the key. Performance I can't complain. I will say that my daughters Terrain has the larger motor and I like the way her car handles better than the 4 cylinder. She also gets better gas mileage

- Teresa T

My car has some really awesome details.

2016 GMC Terrain SL

I do like my car it has a backup camera which is really cool. I love how I can connect my phone to the car and talk hands free through the car. I like how the driver's seat has a back pillow in the seat for your lower back support it also has a button to move your seat either up or down.

- Tricia C

100 percent satisfied customer

2016 GMC Terrain SL

No issues with my vehicle. Love the space size and it's good on gas. The rom for my family is a nice size. I purchased it used but it runs like new if you are in the market for a mid size vehicle start with the terrain. You will be please and your entire family will love it

- Ave B

Sporty but sleek. Does not look like a soccer mom vehicle.

2016 GMC Terrain SL

The radio and navigation system doesn't work. It went out and I only had the vehicle for 3 months. It handles really good and has a lot of safety features. Love the seat warmers and it has automatic start which is great on cold days. Very comfortable for long road trips.
