About Buick Terraza

Buick's Terraza minivan shares its platform with similar GM siblings at Saturn, Pontiac and Chevrolet. While the Terraza is arguably the most luxurious of the group, it can't match the Honda Odyssey or Chrysler Town and Country for interior room, nor does it offer the option of all-wheel drive like the Toyota Sienna. Where many minivans in this segment offer side-curtain airbags for all three rows, the Terraza does not. Despite these shortcomings, the Terraza has much to offer, such as the Sit-N-Lift Mobility Prep package and a powerful V6 engine that can run on either gasoline or E85.

"Overall we love this van. Have had it now for 2.5 yrs. Definately higher end on luxury, we traded in a Licoln LS for this van (thought my husband was going to cry) but I dont feel we sacrificed anything... Have had it in the shop 5/6 times over a "design flaw" with the traction control. You'll be driving along and the traction control locks up wheels, a little scarey!! The air vents should have been placed with more thought in the back of the van, the poor kids are cooking until the whole thing cools off. Great gas milage! love the DVD and sound system. Used it when I was in Home health and never ran out of space! We pretty much carry a Dr's office in the car... If your a first time van buyer check into the wheels, we have replaced tires and there are very few to choose from at most tire places your just stuck with what they have due to the strange size! Hope this is helpful..."

"I have had the Terazza for 28 months and it is a pleasure to drive. Solid ride, comfort, great engine. Have not had any major problems, and minor issues resolved quickly by Buick dealer. Great looking van too. Test drove against Honda and Toyota, but Buick ride is more solid, and it looks much cooler."

Pros: "Decent mileage, good ride, good space for a mini van."

Cons: "Sensitive electric side door, road noise a little loud."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Of all the cars i have owned, this one rates in the middle. if you maintain the automobile it wil serve you well. the engine stillo runs smoothly and quiet at the high mileage and I did have to replace the front shocks at about 90M, but they are not suppose to last for ever. I read one complaint about a rattle in the front suspension: that noise is the worn out shocks. get them replaced and the difference is amazing. In general I feel GM transmissons are weak and if you want them to last you should do a flush every other year. I still have the original transmisson. I would recommend this car to others."
