Here are my nitpicks on the 19' Premier Diesel AWD

The ambient light in the dashboard over the glove box should have been blue to match the rest of the interior instead of white. Everyone thinks my glove box is open.

While it rides better than my mother's 18' CRV, I still wish it was smoother.

The steering wheel buttons on the Terrain are easier to identify than the Chevrolet ones.

The radar cruise control and lane keep assist is no where near as refined as the CRV system.

Otherwise I still love the suv!

We probably would have bought a CRV if it would tow 3,000 lbs. The pilot is too big. I love honda cars though. Interesting that you think the premier rides better than the CRV. For sure our terrain denali is quieter than a crv inside the cabin which suprised me. I'm not sure if the denali gets extra sound deadening material but it's a very quiet ride. I'm happy with the lane keep assist on the terrain. It's not obtrusive at all and provides just the right amount of nudge to keep you in your lane if have a lapse of attention.

For sure the GM suv twins are more quite than the CRV. The CRV has better steering, the ride quality is close but my Equinox is a little better. CRV has more room inside but the Equinox has superior lighting, infotainment, and sound system. Add to that the pano roof and heated rear seats and it was a no brainer for me.

I typically don't go for sunroofs but when I saw the panoramic sunroof on the terrain, I had to have it.. Back seat passengers get to enjoy it way more than driver or co-pilot

I just wanted to revise my observation regarding the reliefs molded into the headliner to assist in deploying the sun visors:

I previously suggested that there were none.

There are indeed provisions molded into the headliner to allow your fingers to gain access, just not as much as some other GM vehicles. I sometimes have to try a couple times to get my fingers under it to pull it down.

Are these panoramic sunroofs made of laminated or tempered glass, and do they have an airbag?

I admit I thought about the potential safety hazard of having just a thin sheet of tempered glass over most of the roof of the car. That being said, GM panoramic sunroof glass failures are a small fraction of the reported issues. From available data, Hyndai and Kia have the most problems.
