Drive 2011 GMC Terrain. We keep it serviced but just found out it uses a LOT of oil. Just like a baby, you may need to feed it more. I've also noticed that each time we take a road trip afterwards we also have some type of serious problem with the engine, sensors or the like. That's what we purchased the car for is to use. We take a lot of road trips and we need the car to be TOTALLY reliable, short or long trips. Very disappointing.

Do you drive a 2011 GMC TERRAIN?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
