Although we bought this vehicle second hand with just over 100k it has had front end and electrical issues constantly that no one can fix. The computer has had to be disconected to keep the brakes from coming on while driving, no one could figure this out and all related it to the computer. Front end problems, electrical problems that no one including GM can figure out. The vehicle is comfortable to drive, but the headaches have been more then enough. Stay away from this vehicle.
get rid of vehicles with computers not only in this vehicle but all vehicles, go back to the basics when cars could easily be repaired.
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!
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.
Memory power seat, cruise control, handy cupholders, height of seats, DVD player in rear, dual air conditioner, comfortable ride,
woodgrain trim, leather seats, overhead storage, easy folding of rear seats, easy access to rear seats without having to fold seats.
Some kind of handle to lift third seats, making the front grill all chrome, making it easier to remove second row of seats.
Buick should bring back the minivan.
There are thousands of willing buyers!
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.
DVD player with headsets, memory seats, comfortable seating, storage space, computer information system, chrome trim on exterior, power doors, 2 tone dash, and storage compartment behind rear seats.
Nearly impossible to blow horn - needs a horn button. Grill bars on front should have been chrome Outside temperature and compass would be more visible on rear view mirror or on radio dial.
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.
DVD with I/R headsets. Remote start. Comfortable on long distances. Good MPG. Long range on tank of gas. Good in snow when traction control is turned off.
The best improvement was discontinuing the model. Dealerships have NO idea how to fix any of the problems. I am done with GM all together now.
