problem #7

Mar 012017

Terrain

  • 46,000 miles
Started March of 2017 progressively getting worse. SUV jerks, gauges go crazy, check engine light comes on, if slow to below 20 mph it sputters and won┐T accelerate, if I stop completely it won┐T accelerate. Multiple times this has happened on the interstate during rush hour traffic & at busy intersections. If I turn car off and back on the system resets. Then it starts all over again. It has been in and out of the shop. Probably 10-15 times in 2years. They get codes, but then these go away before they can be ┐run┐. I broke down 1-1/2 weeks ago in bay minette & the car wouldnt start back up. I was stranded out of town and had to rent a car to get back home. The dealer there got 7 error codes that all cleared out. I have filed a compjaint with GMC, but they are slow to handle the problem & I can┐T get supervisors on the phone or at least one who doesn┐T seem like he's been drinking.

The car keeps stalling when trying to accelerate in reverse or drive and the check engine light is on. This is problem as I am reading up on this so I believe there is some kind of recall that needs to happen. This is bullshit

Terrain

  • 1 miles
Leaving my parking spot after going out to eat I went in reverse and the vehicle stalled at about 5mph, turned the car completely off and then turned back on. Put it in drive and just as I started to accelerate it stalled. This happened 10-12 times while I was trying to leave the parking lot. Vehicle stalled while leaving car wash as I was excelleratig our. Vehicle stalled as I was leaving a complete stop from a stop sign on a city street. Something is wrong with the engine stalling while starting to accelerate. 43,000 miles from first occurrence currently at 43,300 still happening on a regular basis.

On 1/10/18, I was on my way to work and received message "engine power reduced", the engine light came on and power was reduced to 25 mph. I brought the Terrain into a mechanic and he synchronized the gas pedal sensor and fuel sensor and the engine light went out. On 1/13/18, the same thing happened except I was on a highway and it was much more frightening. I brought the Terrain back to my mechanic and left the vehicle. I am now without a car for the weekend.
