I have read some complaints about lack of fuel economy; I too have been disapointed, puzzeling since I had a 2010 rental for awhile which got excellent mileage. It was an AWD 4 cykinder and I got about twenty-seven mpg at seventy-five mph plus country driving, OK by me!
I checked with the service manager where I bought my 2011 vehicle and it turns out there is a service bulletin about reprograming the mileage computer; that the information center may be reading one to three miles per gallon less than the actual mileage.

Have been contemplating the purchase of a Terrain , mostly due to mpg it is supposedly suppose to get. Seen the message boards,reviews and discussions on mpg. Curious to know if anyone has actually done the math, that is total miles on trip meter for a full tank divided by gallons to fill tank as opposed to just relying on what the Terrain's computer/display is telling you..

I have done the math a few times for longer trips. As always ones driving habits and driving conditions can make a large difference. One recent trip was 380 miles, 16.468 Gals = 23.07MPG (while highway miles, some hilly terrain involved). Last week a trip to Maine from Connecticut yielded 526.8 miles 19.819 Gals = 26.05 MPG (kind of surprised me even though it was mostly flat territory). On the trip to maine I kept cruise on between 56-58 MPH and A/C was an off and on thing. This is with the AWD V6 rated at 22 MPG highway.
For the last 3500 miles or so since I reset the computer the puter tells me its averaging 23.6. Total miles on the odo is just over 7000.
#34 of 34 Just purchased a 2011 Terrain SLE- 2

We just bought a Terrain SLE-2 V6 cloth, nav + sunroof + convenience package + 18" wheels + trailer hitch for $30898 + ttl in Dallas , TX.
Invoice was 30408 including destination + ttl. They charged us $490 for regional ad & dealer ad fees. They threw in wheel locks and tint on front windows + one extra tank of gas in the future. Still feel a bit ripped off......What do you think, ok deal ?
