2006 Buick Terraza Minivan CX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

purchased certified used from a gm dealer. I don't believe carfax or this vehicle was poorly built from the beginning. I thought I covered all of the basic when first time buying used. From the noise, lose and squeaky steering wheel, radio can never be turn off manual, feel like the van will fall apart of bumpy roads, purchased a new battery 3 days after purchase, left window squeaks and sitting on pins and needles.


Favorite Features

dvd works ok and interior was very clean.


Suggested Improvements

Don't trust the carfax.

Review

This is the first car I have purchased new, and I am very disappointed with the performance of this van. My van stalls when starting for day one, was told it is a manufactures problem and can't be fixed. It has lots of noises from the tires to squeaking in the seats. Bad blind spots in rear Windows because of back head rest. There is very little storage space in back. Had to have sliding door repaired, weather stripes on doors replaced, new cd player put in, two knew key pads in less than 3 yrs. Rear hatch hard to close, no rear heat, none auto sliding door hard to close, no room betw. Front console and front storage area. This is why they no longer make it.


Favorite Features

DVD player, Exterior design


Suggested Improvements

Interior noise from wind and tires and seats, better take off, ligt in glove compartment. Fix problem with long crank, seems to stick. Make putting down rear seat easier, more room in rear for grocery. Better paint. Seat material needs improving not good with stains, water stains fabric.

Review

Very poor interior design. Accelerator pedal is very uncomfortable and places a strain on foot. Seat adjustment for six foot driver is insufficient. Storage space in between front seats is non-existent. With cup holder up unable to get into storage space. Only one power outlet in front area. Unable to use phone charger and GPS at same time. Need hand grip on passenger side to hold onto when entering or exiting. Many other deficiencies but at this time unable to list due to time restraints. Way too much wind and road noise. Extreme amount of rattles. Dealer unable to locate and fix them. Return visits to dealer too frequent to attempt a fix. The CD player had to be removed and sent back.


Favorite Features

Side door activation system.


Suggested Improvements

Redesign driver comforts and cabin noise. Lowering of rear seats is difficult due to long reach to release lock. By far the worst problem is road noise. Better tires should be factory installed. When I have more time I could offer many more suggestions.

Review

I know Honda, Toyota, and Nissan are all the rage, with Chrysler products leading the American pack, but I have found this Buick Terraza to be a great ride, with all the luxuries of the top guns, and half the price. I guess because of low consumer ratings, there are great deals for the GM's. Not sure why ratings are low, but I like these vans. It is put together well and has a good look, almost SUV-like. The DVD system with the wireless headphones is great for the kids, and I have found no signs of performance trouble. It's a mini-van for goodness sakes, so I'm not looking for the performance of the cars of my youth. Want a good van at a good price? Buy this American made ride.


Favorite Features

Room between seats is very good. Leather seats comfortable. Stylish front end. Looks like an SUV with all the convenience of a mini-van.


Suggested Improvements

Okay, go ahead and put some more power in it, and the rear passenger seat headrests need to be shrunk because they obstruct driver views out the side and rear windows. Curve the back end more like the foreign rides and maybe GM can sell some more mini-vans.
