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 always said I would never own a van, but after having kids we decided we needed one. I researched for about a month and finally decided on the terraza. We love it! It is very comfortable, rides very well, and after 2 years, we have not had any problems at all. Definitely more upscale than a lot of the other vans we tested out. The only negatives we've experienced are the headrests in the third row do create a blind spot, the A/C is not the best in the driver's seat, and it is a little narrow in the back, but we've even been on road trips with 3 adults and 4 small kids with no room problems at all."
