I said I would never own a minivan, and was in the market for midsize SUV when I saw and test drove my new 2005 Platinum Edition Terraza 4 yrs ago. I fell in love at first sight. Mine is fully decked with every possible option including 17 inch chrome wheels. I've owned many vehicles in the past, but none of them have been as multi-functional as this big shiny Buick. Whether it's used for Home Depot, greenhouses, people hauling thru Rocky Mountains, or driving to the theatre, this van does it with ease and finesse. It has enough power when fully loaded while making my way home from vacations. It does not have the roar of my Mercedes, but I did not buy it for that reason.
I love the back up sensors as well as the light grey colored leather interior with contrasting piping. (Think Bentley) I love the secure feeling that Onstar offers, handsfree phone, computer diagnostics sent to my email address. This rare and and now defunct van is right at home in my ritzy zip code
The 2nd and 3rd row seats are a bit heavy to remove alone and they could have been designed for more legroom. I don't sit back there too often,or take the seats out,so it's really a non issue for me.
