Buick Terraza Problems
Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.
The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.
The high pressure power steering hose will commonly leak fluid and should be replaced if this is the case.
Corrosion at the fuel tank to body harness may cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate or a crank no start condition. This corrosion issue is most commonly caused by a water leak inside the vehicle. Any damaged wiring or connectors will require replacement.

Buick Terraza Reviews
WORST VEHICLE EVER!! Suspension and traction control are screwed up and they eat tires and brakes like they are breakfast. Driver's passenger door had to be disconnected due to random opening while driving then sticking open. Windsheild wiper linkage keeps loosening u p and that piece alone is expensive as crap...everything we do to this vehicle lasts for about 6 months tops before it has to be replaced. We have had to replace the front drivers wheel bearing every 6-12 months...I'd gladly trade it but there is no value at all in it!!
My wife was in an accident and totaled our van while we were out of town. So we were duped into buying this hunk of junk in an emergency. We have stuck more money into this than any other vehicle we have owned. From sway bars to electrical to sliding doors. Wiper motors to dvd player. Heated seats to hood latch. Flickering lights you name it. I have always been a fan of Buicks but this one has put them on the S@#T list. So many people have problems with this vehicle and yet the makers take no blame. It is a vehicle that relied on the bells and whistles to sell it not the quality. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!
We had to replace the "Head Gaskets" due to manufacturer problem and this was covered under warranty. Our van is converted by Braun for wheelchair use and constant problem with wiring harness breackage to compressor for air shocks due to corrosion in wiring harness- moisture from somewhere in van since harness not exposed. Warranty won't cover expense-GM problem from factory design. Would appreciate any feedback to correct this problem. Otherwise, satisfied with van performance and handling, except in high wind conditions.Also had to replace heating lines going to back due to corrosion.
biggest piece of shit i have ever owned.. guess thats why they quit making them, thank god!
We have owned out Terraza for 7 years, we have had to replace the transmission, 3 bushings x 1, all four bushings x 1, sway bar coupling x 2 and have had numerous problems witht the electrical system. The driver's side passenger sliding door cannot be used because to do so will create a loud beeping sound that we can't fix for under 500-800 dollars. The warning lights on the dash stay on, all the dash lights bleep on and off once in a while, the sliding doors open automatically even tho we clean the area out throughly. This was an expensive learning curve for us.
