GMC Terrain

I plan to set up my 2015 GMC Terrain as a TOAD and tow it per the owners manual. My question is while the Terrain is being towed will I rack up mileage on the vehicle odometer? The Terrain will be 4 down. Thank you in advance for your reply.

I've recently started researching this issue and have found that the FWD and AWD versions of the Equinox/Terrain can be towed 4 wheels down. From what I understand, once you pull the fuse located under the hood, the mileage will not accumulate. Hopefully someone using this type of vehicle as a toad can confirm.

No it will not accrue mileage. Good friend of mine has a terrain that I helped him set up for towing.

We tow a 2012 Terrain AWD 4down and DO NOT accrue miles while towing. We do pull the fuse the owners manual recommends. (Actually we just push a switch that disconnects the fuse)

We just traded our Wrangler for a used 2011 Terrain SLT2 6 cyl fwd. It was already set up with a baseplate (Road Master) and wiring harness. The rest of the stuff should be all set within the next week. It is our understanding that when the fuse identified in the owner's manual is pulled it will not display an accumulation of towed miles. Our fuse happens to be #32 if I recall correctly. It is near the floor in the fuse box on the passenger side of the vehicle. We now have a switch mounted on the fuse box cover that we merely turn to the "off" position when towing. A lot easier than opening the fuse box and physically removing the fuse. Good luck with yours. We couldn't stand the rough ride of the Wrangler any longer. Great toad but not the kind of vehicle we enjoy riding in. Owned three other jeeps in the past and enjoyed them all. Guess these sore bones are just looking for comfort these days!
