Nothing but trouble
By jmacokc on


2005 Buick Terraza CX Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


I was drawn to the Buick Terraza because it had lots of bells and whistles and low miles (29K). I have owned this vehicle for a little over 2 years and it has been nothing but a pain. Have replaced Wheel Hub Assemblies and control arms twice. Replaced lift gate struts at 50k. Automatic door stopped working and warning bell continuously dings while driving unless fuse for radio is pulled. ABS, Stability Control and Traction Control warning lights come on for no reason. DVD player gets hot to the touch. Plastic molding on the doors has come off.
I have regular & scheduled maintenance done and drive it with respect. Do yourself a favor stay away from this vehicle.

Best Features

Dvd player, wood grain, roomy, nice interior, not bad gas mileage, cup holders.

Worst Features

I'm just glad they don't make this vehicle any longer. Electrical and front end issues. Major design flaws in those areas.
