Just got our 2012 Terrain SLE2 last week, pulled her right off the showroom floor with 12 kms on it. Were very happy with her performance so far but with only 400kms on the odometer and lots to learn with the gadgets I'll be frequenting this forum for information
I happened to stumble upon this forum looking for break
in information since we've never owned a brand new vehicle before and I see this forum being a asset. Being from Creston BC and nothing but mountain roads around here and hope this Terrain can live up to expectations.

welcome, when are you going to do the first oil change? since metal shaving are much more present when the engine is new, you might want to do an oil change around the 1000KM mark.

Going to the dealer tommorrow (Tuesday) to get the undercoating, scotchguard and leather protection that was included with the price. Did some googling and can't really find any service warranty explainations. In the excitement of getting the paperwork done and watching them pull her out of the showroom we kinda forgot to ask bout a few things like warranty work being one of them. I figured 1000 kms should be the first oil change and you saying that verified it.

Congrats.

One thing that got me a few times during my new/used car buying experience was getting caught up in the excitement. I would get so excited that I forgot to check up or ask about things. Thankfully none of that backfired!

How are you driving your Terrain in the first 1000km's? I know with new cars your suppose to drive them easily for an xxxx amount of miles/km's as part of the engine break-in process.
