It's not a minivan, it's a sport crossover
By MN photographer on


2005 Buick Terraza CXL AWD 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


We never need utter those "van" words again. I went looking for a new vehicle, worn out from the minivan mom appearance. I told the dealer "I need something that has enough space for photography backdrops and equipment, is comfortable to drive, looks good, gets better than 20 mpg, and it CAN'T be a minivan." He showed me one. It was big enough. He said the only other suggestion was their new minivan that was 'right there'. "Where?" He had to point it out because, ladies, this is not a minivan. It looks like an SUV with power sliding doors. Awesome! I'm in love with my new sport crossover. If we all get together on the lingo, it'd be perfect. Key words: comfort and luxury.

Best Features

Where to begin? I adore how it rides and how it looks. I love the DVD/game player. I didn't think I really needed it as my youngest is now 11. Wrong. She loves it and uses it a lot. The "trunk" covered storage space is a welcome change from my Caravan along with adjustable heated leather seats

Worst Features

It feels like this car may have had a male driver in mind with it's sportier look and wide-spaced driver arm rests. They seem either too low or too narrow of a width for me to give this car a 10. I'll give it a 9.5 instead. The car's computer, I do mostly city driving, says I am getting 16.7 mpg
