Just bought a rebuilt terrain.
Hi all, so I bought a 2014 Terrain sle-2 awd 2.4. I checked it out thoroughly and damage was rear lower area where spare tire is, looks like they pounded it out, sealed it and replaced bumper. Also front drivers corner a couple pieces were replaced but never intruded into engine area or set off any airbags. Smells, looks and runs like a new vehicle(not even one door ding or scratch I can find) and has 50k miles(I have all service records since new and has never missed a oil change and only had oil changes, tire rotations and wipers replaced since new) . Have 2 issues but hopefully easy fix, is main reason I joined the forums. I never had a 4 cyl except my wife's previous car a 11 optima 2.0 Turbo(was rebuilt title too, bought it in 2012 for 13k with 3k miles, only issues in 100k miles is 2 CV axles and basic maintenance and still runs perfect) . So hopefully this Terrain will hold up. Wife drives a lot for work and is not productive if I have to buy her a newer car every few years, so a good rebuilt car is way less cost, if damage was cosmetic. I paid 7k for this Terrain. Issues are right door speaker buzzes when cold sounds like it's bad, ordered one to replace and rear 02 sensor throwing code, so ordered a new 02, if that doesn't solve issue will start diagnostic tests. I'm more a Camaro and Truck guy, have a 2010 SS and 13 Ram hemi. But wife driving so much at work, they give her between $700 and 800 a month in just mileage. So getting 26 mpg average in the 2.4 liter terrain will pay for itself. Just in past week we already put 550 miles on the Terrain.
