Is that Terrain roof rack standard on all models? When you say generic purposes do you mean doing things like carrying roof top bags and roof top carriers? got a picture?
I as also told to check out Thule, now that rings a bell. I believe i saw a display of Thule products at the part store.
sorry for all the questions dude, i don't mean to sound like a cop and interrogate you on roof racks hahaha. it just that i don't know much about them. so i figured this forum would be the best place to ask about it!
I bought a SLI Terrain last week. Its nice with the standards features, but unfortunately the roof rack is not standard. In order to get the roof rack has to jump to the next model as a package that cost almost $2,000 more. Almost all competitors include the rack as an standard feature. Now it is not easy to find the base rails after market with a reasonable price. The dealer ask me almost $1,000 for the original. Thules does not have the base rails. If a member could help me I will appreciate. thanks
I am considering purchasing a new 2012 terrain without a roof rack, the SLE1 model. The dealer told me one could not be put on this model because there is not support for the roof rack for the SLE-1 trim level. Does anyone know if this is true or the dealer just trying to get me to purchase a more expensive one?
The studs to mount the roof rack are neatly concealed under the channel moulding on your roof. When I inquired about a roof rack, the dealership told me that even if he could order one, all the required parts would cost almost $1200. Further, he said that mounting it was a big job with all the modifications and it would be almost $300 to mount it. WRONG! Just another dealer lie!
Check out my install video on youtube. Search "install roof rack chevy equinox gmc terrain" you will see what I mean. It's a joke how easy it is.
BTW, I was able to find 2 pristine chrome racks at a local dealership. I still have one left if you are interested.
