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


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

2006 Buick Terraza must be one of Buick's worse vehicles, the back seats are not comfortable, only one arm rest per seat, what do you do with your other arm!!?? The Black dashboard makes the vehicle hotter, sometimes I think the air is not working.Makes load noise when turning corners . Head lights and interior lights sometimes dim. I would not buy another Buick.


Best Features

The DVD, has lots of room


Worst Features

Don't make anymore vans!!!!

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.

Review

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

Review

This was an emergency purchase (with Buick Rendevous trade-in...another GM horror story) for 2008 family summer trips. DVD system a plus with four kids; averaged 26 MPG highway driving...very comfortable seats. Lack of seating flexibility (no fold-down 3rd row seats, and 2nd row seats don't slide forward) a major minus. Removing 2nd/3rd row seats is hernia territory. Repairs in 18 months ownership: (1) replaced front stabilizer links ($270); (2) reprogram PCM to address extended crank time, Bulletin #05-06-04-076B ($90). Still fighting Dealer on the flickering headlamps & interior lights, Bulletin #05-06-03-003C, that may require either replacement voltage regulator or alternator (ouch)


Best Features

Hands-down: the front seats (quality leather and very comfortable) and the DVD system with wireless headsets (did I mention 4 kids earlier?). Was surprised with highway fuel economy in 25 and 26 MPG range on 1000+ mile trips, and have even averaged in low 20's around Tampa (city driving).


Worst Features

Can GM build a 100K mile vehicle? Well documented electrical problems appear fixable...concerned about engine/transmission/suspension long term reliability. Our 2002 Buick Rendevous traded-in for this Terraza blew-up at 60K; first vehicle I've owned that did not reach 100K miles. Can GM compete??
