My 2015 GMC Terrain

I used to have 2 Buick Roadmaster Wagons. The first one was like a tank. I ran it into the ground. It went 285K miles. I got rid of it because the engine was on it's last legs. It was a '93. The second one, the engine caught on fire. It was a '95. Both fantastic cars.

I purchased my 2015 GMC Terrain that year and I couldn't be happier. It doesn't have the room that the wagons had, but it is roomy enough for what I need and very reliable. I have 72K miles on it. I hope to have it for a very long time.

Anyone here have any GMC Terrains over 100k? If so, how have they been maintenance wise?

I believe there is a terrain or equinox on here with close to 300k on it. Just have to keep up with the maintenance.

My 2011 4cyl Terrain is about to hit 99,000. I have done changing the oil on schedule, replaced spark plugs, cleaned the MAF and Throttle body, changed the cabin and engine air filters on the regular, replaced the lift gate struts since they were worn out and sagging, and changed the transmission fluid at 60,000 and at 98,000. I am not a "car guy" but I did all of these things at home by myself using the advice on here and youtube videos. All are easy to do. I will do brake pads and rotors down the road when they need it. I am hoping to get 200,000 out my terrain, and since I had the oil consumption warranty fix done, it should be possible.

You basically have a rebuilt engine in the Terrain? If beyond the warranties that would have been several thousand dollars, not a good recommendation for the machine. Lots of comments about the overhaul being somewhat temporary. But I do hope it it makes your target without any more major problems.
