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


Review

We've only had it a year. Purchased the extended warranty. Good thing, it's been in the shop 6 times. Twice for a draining battery issue that the dealer never did find the answer to. Battery drained and left us stranded at the airport twice each time after only 5 days. Battery tested 'good'. Dealer recommended a new battery anyway since they couldn't find the problem. Four times in the shop for electronic doors that chime - drove us nuts - and seldom worked. Dealer said they couldn't 'duplicate' the problem at the shop but acknowledged we weren't lying. Transmission started to slip in first. Only thing to do: we decided to dump it and lose $ on it. Advice: Stay away.


Best Features

We liked the DVD feature when it worked for the kids (pulled the fuse to the radio/dvd to silence the 'door chime'). The heated seats are nice. The van had a nice ride, was quiet. Comfortable seats; good view of the road going forward. Adequate storage.


Worst Features

GM needs to stop cutting corners on electronics or at least make efforts to repair/replace faulty manufactured components. The technician worked hard to fix the doors but became frustrated because GM offered no permanent solution to the chiming/door sensor problem.

Review

We traded in a Chrysler Town & Country Limited & we loved this vehicle it just had too many miles on it- liking the outside more SUV look of the Buick Terazza I purchased this one with 12,000 miles on it--- Everything I read now in the bad reviews is what I have problem with. Everything rattles- back seats are uncomfortable and cramped- slow to start, stalls. Service stabilation light comes on & steering freezes, clunking in front end dealer says there is nothing wrong with either, the transmission jumps when shifting. The worst is I cannot rely on the fuel gage that tells how many miles till empty- Twice I ran out of gas with 61 miles to go and the low fuel light didn't come on-


Best Features

leather interior and heated seats


Worst Features

Buy A Chrysler

Review

Bought a used 3.9L V6 and I'm very disappointed with this vehicle. I had alarm bells going off all the time with no indication of what was wrong. I finally figured out it had something to do with one of the automatic sliding doors. I also have some sort of inconsistent transmission problem. It either clunks into second gear or it shakes into second gear. Dealer figured out the computer chip needed an update to fix the alarm bells but they can't find anything wrong with the transmission. It's also a very noisy van. Lots of rattling and road noise. I've owned lots of different makes of vehicles and will never go back to GM.


Best Features

Comfortable seats, kids like the DVD player


Worst Features

Change the style of seat, to hard to see around. Add an ipod jack to the stereo system. Better sound proofing. Get a handle on the mechanics of these vans before selling them to the public.

Overall I think this is a good van. It has lots of room, very quite. Rides nice on highway. I have had no major problems, However Carl Black Buick performed some warranty work and did a very poor job.


Best Features

Nice ride. DVD, Air pump, under deck storage for tools etc.


Worst Features

Very large blind spots
