  • Last week my 2010 Terrain, 4 cylinder blew its transmission. It went on the road Oct 9 2009 and had 152 948 Kms on it. So over the 5 years but under the 160 000 Km mark. I got the car at just over 100,000 Kms (Had a Traverse that I bought new that gave me nothing but problems. At 100 000 kms I swapped cars thinking the Terrain would be less of a mechanical nightmare). Between last week and taking over the vehicle I had about $600.00 worth of repairs, not including a battery replacement. Not sure if that is good or bad over about 2 years. Anyways, a kicker is that when this transmission went I dug deeper into the history of the car and found that several times they had worked on the computer AND at 51,888 Kms they put a brand new transmission in, meaning that a second transmission lasted only 101,060 Kms. I also discovered that at 23,000 Kms the battery had been replaced. 23,000 Kms is practically a brand new car. The real kicker is that GM was not interested in helping. I don’t buy into the “you got a lemon” theory. Controls are very rigid these days and would not allow that. All future buyers should be aware. A better dealer could have helped more BUT with an engine they have all ready flagged as having a potential problem (oil burning) and multiple transmissions going you have the potential of risking a lot of capital on a vehicle that will not be reliable.
