2005 Buick Terraza Minivan CX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For a minivan, it's super quiet. Sometimes the only sound is kids laughing in back, enjoying a DVD with the wireless headphones. Performance is adequate, downshifts nicely. Handling is very good for a vehicle of this type. Drives more like a sedan than a van.


Best Features

Left right and rear heating controls, storage, fold down rear seats, built in air compressor


Worst Features

Wish the model I bought had the exterior air filter

Review

Have had bad front brakes at 18,000. Dealer told me that the pads had heat glazed and wanted $290 for new pads. Put new pads on myself. Car still shaking when braking at 25,000 miles. Headlights and dashlights flicker when accelerating. Replaced radio and DVD player once at 10,000 miles. Not happy with it overall


Best Features

DVD player, air compressor in back

Review

I never heard of a Terraza until I found a used one on the the lot of my local Chevy dealer. The vehicle had 13,000 miles on it and was showroom new. It had everything i was looking for and I was hooked after the test drive. It rides smooth and has plenty of power. The 3.5L engine is not going to blow anyone's doors off, but it cruises effortlessly at 80 mph. The interior and exterior styling are very sharp and it has plenty of standard options like dual climate control power sliding doors, power seats and a dvd player. I have not noticed any of the problems indicated in other reviews such as lack of room, power, or road noise that interferes with conversations. It rides like a Caddy!


Best Features

The ride of this vehicle is fantastic along with the 7 passenger seating, power sliding doors, DVD player, dual climate control, OnStar. You have to ignore the reviews and drive this van. You will not be disappointed


Worst Features

I own the 2005 and yes the engine could be a little stronger. It seems that Buick has addressed this issue in its newer models. Dont care for the positioning of the cruise control, but it works fine.

Review

We had a few problems when we purchased the vehicle, but GM fixed them all and gave a replacement vehicle to drive. After all the issues were resolved, there still are a few annoying squeaks coming from the CD/radio panel. It needs a little more attention to the interior sound detail. A little disappointing to the Buick line. Overall, it's been fun to drive. Though the cruise control does not work very well either. GM is still working on this issue. It carries the family well to get togethers and the DVD player works very good. It certainly is an upgrade from the Pontiac Montana we drove around.


Best Features

DVD, CD changer.


Worst Features

Cruise control is horrible. Squeaks in the cabin are annoying. Build quality is not where it should have been on this vehicle

Review

This is the very best automobile I have ever owned. I am 56 years old. I have had 5 Chrysler minivans and they do not compare to this van in comfort or style.


Best Features

The interior and the automatic doors


Worst Features

Better gas mileage is all
