So, the ONLY thing I'm not really fond of in the Terrain is the red ambient lighting. Is there anyway to get rid of it? I'm debating whether to wait it out and see if they change it on the 2011... I won't hold my breathe.

If blue is more pleasing to you try the Chevrolet Equinox. Same vehicle made on the same assembly line.
The interior is identical except for the ambient light colour.

I was in that same position myself when I was looking to buy the car. Being that my favorite color is blue, I wanted to get the blue ambiant lighting but didn't like the Nox jellybean shape exterior .

So I got a Atlantic Blue with Jet Black interior and, to my surprise, loving that red lighting at night ever since I got it.

Ive heard of last Chrysler vans described as "Jellybean" but never the new Nox.
I would have bought a Terrain or Nox off the lot if equipped as I wanted.
I realize they are same under the skin. I ordered a Nox but would be just as pleased with a Terrain.
I like black jelly beans but Mocha Noxes.

Too funny, not 10 minutes ago we were upstairs waiting for dinner and munching on Black Licorice Babies (the kids were eating ju-jube beans).
We think the dog got sick cause he had a strange look on his face after snapping a few off the floor so I came down to search if licorice is bad for dogs!

Well, there is no accounting for taste.

I don't think the jellybean is as bad as the grill on the Nox. I love the Terrain's exterior. Hopefully the interior will grow on me when I get it. I wonder if there is a way to modify it eventually?

Hi y'all, new to this forum and a new owner of a 2016 Terrain. I was thinking of changing the ambiant or accent lighting to blue in fact. Would there be a how too on this forum that could help me do that? I've been looking but I don't seem to find anything on it. I'll be looking at radio replacement too. Perhaps I can get something in there. Many thanks

No easy/feasible way to either change the ambient lighting color, or the headunit to anything other than different GM unit, and even that is difficult.

Thanks for your reply, I see... If the red lighting on the center dash trim is part of the head unit, I can understand but if not then this should be an easy to moderate difficulty mod. I was also thinking of changing the cup holder light to blue and perhaps the center map light. I already pulled the upper center dome light assembly to have a look and it seems I can change these lights easy enough. I'll spend some time pulling panels around the head unit and see. I'll let you know the outcome (or damage, heh)

Hello and welcome!

It would be s very extensive mod to change the LED colors in the Terrrain form Red to another color. Replace evey LED is the only way and not easy in each location, instrument panel, radio , etc. Not really a good idea without some possible damage or compromise in continued reliable operation.

You will also VOID the factory warranty on any areas you modifiy.

Also. . . . NOTE the warning given when you make posts in something like this 5 year old thread.

Best to start a new thread rather than continue in something long past unless it was a solution to your concern and I see none offered here, just a lot of unrelated replies.
