Buick Terraza Reviews and Owner Comments
2005 Buick TerrazaVisitor, Peever, SD, May 24, 2012 09:27We 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.
2005 Buick TerrazaVisitor, Kennebunk, ME, December 14, 2011 06:13This vehicle was the biggest lemon I've ever owned. We have replaced windshield wiper motors multiple times, the passenger sliding door is completely non-functional because it opens and closes randomly, the handle broke off the driver's side passenger door, and the heat only blows hot out of one vent, the rest blow cold. I have replaced brakes and tires a ridiculous amount of times for a vehicle of this age and mileage. The biggest problem, however, is the traction control. Soon after we got it, I'd be driving down the road at any speed and perfect weather conditions and the van would activate the traction control and pull me off the road, usually to the right. I got NO satisfaction from Buick, the best they'd offer me is free oil changes if I'd go away basically. REALLY? If one of us gets killed in it, it will cost them a lot more than that. I can't let my teenage drivers use it because I'm always afraid it will activate in a horrible situation. We missed out on the lemon law by a few months, and there is virtually no trade-in value because everything about the car doesn't work right. I know why they don't make this vehicle any more, and it's unfortunate the company wouldn't stand by it.
2005 Buick TerrazaVisitor, Falls Church, VA, February 17, 2011 13:40Have had car for 5 years, I have had to transmission rebuilt at 76000 miles, had problems with ABS and Traction control lights coming on. Fortunately was still under warranty and repaired for free, This happened 3 times each time costing $500 plus in repairs. Now have problem with major drop in fuel economy, down about 30%.
2005 Buick Terrazapnfern, Deland, FL, February 18, 2009 10:33We love this van (SUV) it has everything we could ask for. There are a few short falls and that is with storage inside for small items. Besides the clove box there is no extra places to store any CD or Videos for the DVD Player located over head between the front seats. The sound system is great so is the cordless head-phones that helps to keep the kids quite and occupied while the rest of the passengers can talk without the loud noise from music or movies.Enthusiast
