Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2013 GMC Terrain Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 012013


  • 30 miles


Started right after I purchased the vehicle in Jan 2013 and continues every winter. When outside temperature falls below 40 degree's the vehicle windshield makes a cracking sound. I like to refer to it as making "popcorn" same sound. Continues while driving until I heat up car. I have brought it to dealer attention even had it in service department but they are unable to duplicate sound. I have video and sent to GMC.

problem #2

Terrain 4-cyl

  • 92 miles
Snow, mud and all road dirt accumulates inside the bottom of all doors, up to the inside interior panel of the doors. Am concerned about rust in the future and if it's due to an improper seal on doors.

Terrain 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
Road dirt, snow, mud accumulates at inside bottoms of doors all the way up to bottom of speaker areas. I can see where it is pulling down the bottom panels. Called dealer and asked for GM info on this and nothing back from dealer. Also 2 weeks ago engine lite came on, took to local dealer for replacement of gasoline sensor" at 10,000 miles? asked if I used corn gas? no, I use plus or premium. Does this happen every 10,000 miles" also I am concerned I will have rust on my doors very soon.
