Review of the 2005 Buick Terraza

  • Though the Terraza features a slick interior and distinctive styling, it doesn't have the on-road finesse of its minivan competitors.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Smooth ride and handling, lots of nifty interior storage spaces, innovative multimedia storage system, standard stability control on 2WD model, available all-wheel drive.

  • Cons

    Engine power and refinement not up to class leaders, no side curtain airbags.

  • What's New for 2005

    The Terraza is an all-new "crossover sport van." Think of it as a minivan with an SUV-like front end.

Luxury for mommy

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my buick for nearly 2 years and I love it! It's a smooth ride. Love the interior. very reliable. Have not had any problems so far. great for the kids, roomy. Great for traveling. only downfall is the gas mileage. I get about 15mpg city and not much more hwy. the automatic sliding doors are convenient but when you hit a bump in the road the door will un-latch, causing an ever so annoying alarm to sound until you put the car in park and shut the door. no regrets buying this vehicle.Treat yourself moms and buy this car!




Great car for travel!

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

This car is sensational for comfortable long distance travel whether just for the two of us or when we take other adults up to six on a trip. It even beats our Lincoln Town Car for a comfortable long distance trip. Besides being handy to haul bulky items too large for an auto's trunk, it has an elegant interior. In 90,000 miles, we have had to replace one front wheel bearing and one rear hub. Otherwise, only normal maintenance has been required. I don't want to give this car up since there is no suitable replacement on the market now.

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

Bought new in January,2005, our car now has 83,000 miles and has performed flawlessly. We have made several trips of more than 900 miles in one day with trade-off of drivers, and the comfort of its seats make that no problem. Mileage on trips is usually about 23 MPG, more at lower speeds. No repairs required except rear hubs became warped and noisy at 50,000 miles. Tires had to be replaced at 60,000 miles- good but not the 81,000 miles our 98 Oldsmobile van got. The interior design is very classy and car has many quality features. We wish GM would make more vans and not push everyone towards SUV's which are not nearly as economical and versatile.

Big mistake!

by on
Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought the van used in 2008 (58,000 mi.) Traded in Jeep Commander which just didn't have enough room for my family. Big Mistake! Nothing but problems. Drivers side power door had been "fixed" six times now. Yeah, right. Number seven is right around the corner. Tranny slipping horribly. Radio turns off by it self at random. Headlights flicker. Heated seats do not work anymore. Pass. power seat broken. Carpet stains very easy. Door handles break often. The only thing that works right is the DVD system. I have owned over 20 vehicles. This is the worst ever! And having major dealership problems now too.

Cxl should mean crap xtra

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought the van in Sept. 2008 to replace a Jeep Commander (Which I loved! But didn't have the room for 3 kids and all the stuff associated with them). I have to say, I am truly dissapointed with Buick and GM in general. I have had the van in the dealer 6 times for a reoccurring problem with drivers side power sliding door not closing and sending a constant alarm. Even when van is turned off, still alarms. Dealer DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO FIX IT! Just keeps resetting an adjustment and I'm back again a few months later. The service advisor told me today "There is a reason Buick stopped making this van, you should have read reviews before buying this piece of crap."

Terreza

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Terraza CXL Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)

I hate this car! I bought it used, but within 6 months I had lights coming on, and was told it's a dirty sensor and to put $10 fuel additive in it every time I get gas, which is once a week. Now, I've had it for 2 years, spent $1000 on fuel additive and more lights are coming on. The remote start stopped working, the gas gauge stopped working and guess what, warranty's expired. $1500 min if I want it fixed. I am looking to trade it in!
