This van works. Buick gives you lots of extras as standard items that you would have to pay more for on the imports. Donít believe consumer reports on the ride quality and noise of the engine, they tested the Saturn version only, not the Buick! Buick differs from the other GM siblings with an independent rear suspension and also quiet tuning and a more refined 3.5L engine. This van is as plush as a Lexus. My wife and I drove 12 hrs in the Van from Oregon to California with a 12 yr old, 8 yr old, new born, mother-in-law and dog in comfort. The kids put the DVD on with headphones and all was quiet. Got to San Jose in great shape!! The Van passed with flying colors.
Brakes are unbelievable on this Van. Buickís Quiet- Tuning! This van is so smooth and quiet. Handling and responsiveness is much better than expected with the 3.5L. The independent rear axel works, taking bumps in stride and keeping you in control. Comfort is awesome too!
Seats are a little heavy. Make it easier to pull rear seats back up once from flat position. Also add a power lift gate.
