2013 GMC Terrain trans went out at 104K. Pretty unbelievable
Every vehicle going back to my grandfather has been a GMC product. I own a 1999 Trans Am with 175K on it and still runs flawlessly.
Anyways, had this vehicle for 2 years. Dealer told me the transmission has a rare failure at 55K miles and got replaced. I wasn't afraid, so still went through with the sale. Shifting started tanking at 4500 RPMs when I tried to pass. So i played it safe and got it home and took it in, thinking it was a programming issue. Negative. Trans is ready to blow any minute my local dealer said. $3100 for a reman. 2 year warrenty. Local dealer said I'm just out of luck since it's past 100K warranty.
I own my own business, having 2 heavy duty work trucks. My wife is the local school attorney/business manager and we have spoke so highly of GMC and the entire school fleet is GMC products. Really considering this wasn't the right path. The loyalty I have shown didn't get me very far. 2 transmissions at 104,000 miles is super disappointing. Even more disappointed my local dealer/district manager won't help any.
Wondering is this unbelievably rare, or have others had transmission issues with the Terrain?
Edit: This is the 3.6L, 6 cylinder model, SLT-2 Trim, AWD.
