2005 Buick Terraza CXL AWD 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Have a long history of good Bbuicks, so when it became time for me to haul grandsons to hockey and loads of food and gear to the cottage, I wanted a van with AWD.
I love this vehicle and would have bought another if GM still made a replacement.
A few problems that dealer handled well: flush rear AWD transmission due to whirring noise on sharp turns, Rt front wheel bearing,
front brakes after 4 years-not bad, after 7 years remote start/doors key FOBs quit - still working on that one. Have 100,000miles including 2 trips to South Mexico-beautiful to drive at 75MPH for hours.
#1 issue: same DVD stuck in 2nd row player since 2006 .
In 2012 drive heated seat has a hot spot - may be a short?

Best Features

Load space huge with 2nd row seats removed, can easily set up 3rd row when needed - load leveling v.g with heavy lumber, etc. Great highway ride, love the back-up sensors for parking, etc, interior great. AWD great in winter and on loose gravel inclines,

Worst Features

2nd row DVD service, Rt Front bearing and brakes longevity, Make a replacement or 2014 Terraza van - still looking for my next Terraza!
