Until one night already almost home! Ck engine lt on but did not stay on. Still under warranty - rec'd new engine. I am writing this letter in hopes of receiving some help from General Motors of Canada. Then the issue slowly got worse to the point of stalling and also in park if you rev up the engine to 1400 - 2000 rpm it has a very noticeable roughness, so much that you feel it through out the vehicle.

They finally announced a recall after 4 years of complaints and being told nothing was wrong.
We then contacted Heuvelmans and Frank went down to first look at the car. Service Advisor said timing belt was going out and water pump needed replacing. Over-fueled engine and filled crankcase with gasoline. For the other vehicles they have extended the warranty to 10 years or 195000 km, by the way this vehicle is 7 years old and has 108000 km on it, well within this extended warranty coverage. Took to dealer 3X ovr period of 3 mths before confirmed there was a problem. Only less than 6 months ago and Barely 50k miles.
Which was fixed on my dime. This vehicle has had many codes show up on the monitor but when scanned no codes were able to be read, so no issues as they say. The vehicle was running great nice and smooth then one day it started running rough to a small degree. Once the engine light comes on its best you try to make it home or to the nearest dealership because the vehicle is going to leave you stranded as you begin to lose power. Towed to shop was informed timing chain damage, Camshafts slip valves have hit the Pistons.
What a piece of junk!! Upon restarting it I had a loss of power and it sounded terrible! The dealership where it was purchased will never be used by us again! Oh I know, since the car doesn't actually fly, you just pull over to the side of the road in case of failure and no one should get hurt. I use the best fuel system cleaner on the market and have the system professionally cleaned at regular intervals due to the quality of gas nowadays. I purchased my Terrain in November of 2009. About 3 years old from new purchase 2. The vehicle has cut off on me 5 times 2 of which in the dead of winter. I dont know what to do! In addition, respondents also rate their cars in six categories: driving experience, comfort, value, styling, audio, and climate systems. This was not acceptable then and is not acceptable now.
Caused car to run very rough. As I understand it, this is a high pressure fuel system. It will continually shot off. Not only is the Terrain junk, the dealer is now trying to rip me off! Both brands meet the same fitment requirements and are equal in their performance and specifications. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year. Also died a few times when idling at a stop light.
Took it to the dealer and the mechanic knew right away. I'm not rich, I have a disabled daughter at home that needs me so the car is just sitting on hold. Dealer offer to perform a special exception out of warranty repair on the balancer components. I have come to the obvious conclusion that this engine should have been recalled to either fix the issues prior to them doing damage or the engines should have been replaced under factory warranty. The Nozzle keeps Shutting off.
One morning around 3am leaving for work, barely driving down my street it began to idle real loud, the reduced engine power came on, then possible ice warning, then the service stability. We have called numerous times to Gm Canada with no help. So we had it towed to Heuvelmans, another 84. Tried tune-up but that did not fix so they put in new ecm but still the same issue persists. The vehicle would not let me remove my key. I m not exactly sure where the high¸ oil consumption was taking place but it seemed to disappear after they repaired the timing chain and bent valves all warranty.
They took the engine out and replaced the timing chain. Extended warranty for 100000 km but only 5 years. I do want to thank Lynn for all her help. Has been to several dealerships without being fixed since they just don't know or care. The repair price from the shop is so high I can't get it fixed.
So they say some are making these noises and put some kind of cap to muffle sound. Engine stalled on highway would not restart just loud clunking and grinding no warning at all this was going to happen. The Timing chain and cylinders were changed. Under 100,000 miles but at 7 years, 2 years beyond warranty. High pressure fuel pump replaced.

Our subscribers provide great insights into their satisfaction by answering one simple question: If they had it to do all over again, would they definitely buy or lease the same model? When I talked to the dealership they said it was not within the warranty period. Upon speaking with mechanics and getting a better understanding of how this engine works, it only makes sense that once you have internal components such as these out of balance and not working efficiently, they would affect the other moving components in the engine causing even more problems.
