So the UP just got about 5" of snow and after driving through the initial accumulation, I have more confidence in my car than I did when I got it this summer... I have a 17' SLE2 with AWD and v6 (pretty much the only options on the car). The AWD system seems adept and engaged smoothly as I had a hard time judging when it was on. Combined with the v6, I had more than enough power to get up some rather sketchy hills. Also, the trans worked amazingly, downshifting to get me up said hills... Overall, this is a good winter vehicle. (It also will slide around in the snow if you drive like an idiot )

lesson learned

Bought a new 2018 Terrain a few months ago after having 2 Acadias from the same dealer, Drove it home and noticed the rear door touched the front door when opening, needed a slight adjustment, no big deal, on first oil change i will tell them. First mistake, they said well wind must have caught it, needs to go to body shop, of course not under warranty. No its just poor workmanship. Took it home and adjusted it myself. 6000 miles no major issues, passenger side blind side doesnt seem to work all the time, next oil change will tell them. I know, probably something I did

I had read a bit about the nox/terrain and decided to stop on the way home at the chevy dealer just to take a look. Fortunately, i got to see and drive a loaded nox and i knew that i needed to seriously consider these vehicles. My 09 bmw is the 2nd i've had in 3 years. Before that a caddy cts 3.6, before that 2 slk's, one 4 and then the new v-6. I've had porsches, mercedes, jags, and some very serious muscle cars in the 60's & 70's. My dad owned 4 napa stores and i grew up loving cars. I've driven 'em, raced 'em, pampered 'em, and even rebuilt a few in my 60 years. I probably never keep any car more than a couple years. This terrain will be my daily driver and the wife has a very short hop to work so she normally drives the bimmer. I am fortunate as life has been good to me. I could afford any of those cars i was looking at. I think time will tell me i made the right choice. In any event, i've got a great big back seat and cargo area i wouldn't get with the infinity.
this gmc terrian has the bigest back seat i ever sat in and im 6.5 267 lbs and no problems knees didnt even touch both drivers or passengers seat backs i tried both wow that just freaked me out ive been in vans with smaler seating i was going to buy the arcida i loved the green leather ever where even the dash but nope terrian won my cash just sent my py off very happy milage today 142,231 oil changes evry time od tell me so besides tuffys sticker lol but yup

Old news but new to me, I was the Cruze was getting better MPG on 91 Octane. So I recorded some days when I put in 87 , and then 91. Then used today's gas prices from a local shell. Did the math and it came out to it cost me 3 cents more a mile using 87. MPG wasn't much, so I broke it down per mile. On the fence, the 19 Equinox ran smoother and had more pep. I expected that since I run 93 on a Spitfire and it did wonders compared to lower octane. I'll try a few more times and see the results on paper.
