'Buick' Another Word for 'Broke'
By foodle on
2006 Buick Terraza CXL 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
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.
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.
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.
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.
