- NONE NOTHING WORTH MENTIONING
MY 2ND REVIEW AFTER 6 MONTHS OF OWNERSHIP AND I MUST SAY THAT WE LOVE THIS VEHICLE. i AM SURE THAT YOU CAN FIND DISSATIFIED CUSTOMER WITH ANY TYPE EVEN A MERCEDES. MY WIFE AND I USE THIS VEHICLE LIKE A CAR/VAN AND IT HAS PERFORMED VERY WELL. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS VAN TO OTHERS WHO WANT A LITTLE CLASS AND DECENT APPEAL...read morehide

- Comfortable ride, Great appearance, Good stereo system, neat storage
- Transmission noise when backing up at times.
I drive a van because we travel alot and carry lots of clothes, golf clubs, and luggage. Last 2 vans were Olds Sillhouttes, which I liked.
I'm totally contented with this vehicle. We have XM, Onstar, chrome
wheels, remote start, and heated seats. Lots of car for the money, and it looks great. I've got 14K miles and haven't had big probs.
Had a recall on the alternator as the lighting system flickered. Had
steering wheel replaced as the horn wouldn't honk easily at all.
Overall, it's not perfect, but as close as one can get these days. I'd
recommend this vehicle....read morehide

- Good looking, plenty of space
- Too many maintenance problems
Don't buy a Terazza if you want to drive at highway speeds. Mine shimmies like crazy and the dealer can't seem to fix it. They were going to switch wheels from a 2006 but they test drove that van first AND IT SHOOK TOO!
I've had this vehicle in for repairs 8 times already!

- EVERYTHING , WHAT ELSE CAN YOU ASK FOR........
- COMPARTMENTS COULD BE MADE OF BETTER QUALITY
WE ARE A FAMILY OF FIVE AND TRADED IN OUR CHEVY AVALANCHE FOR THE TERRAZA BECAUSE WE WERE RUNNING OUT OF ROOM. GOING FROM A TRUCK LIKE THAT ONE TO A VAN WAS VERY DIFFICULT BUT ONCE WE HAD IT AND WE SAW HOW MUCH FUN THE KIDS HAD IN IT, IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. WE LOVE IT AND THE GM DEALERSHIP HAS BEEN WONDERFUL. WE BOUGHT THE 2005 WITH THE 3.5 ENGINE BUT I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT THE 3.9 IF IT WAS AVAILABLE THEN. IT DOES LACK A LITTLE POWER BUT IT IS A VAN AND WE ENJOY SPENDING A LITTLE MORE TIME AWAY FROM THE GAS PUMP......(COMPARE TO A TRUCK)...read morehide

- FUEL ECONOMY NOT BAD FOR A VAN, A LOT OF NEAT FEATURES, POWER SEATS FOR DRIVER AND PASSENGER, ONSTA
- INTERIOR NEEDS SPRUCING UP. TOO MUCH HARD PLASTIC
I PURCHASED THIS VEH FOR MY WIFE, SHE WANTED A VAN. AFTER LOOKING AT SEVERAL VEH IN THIS CLASS I LIKED THE BUICK NAME. MY WIFE LOVES THE VEH AND THATS WHATS COUNTS. OVERALL WE ARE SATIFIED WITH THE VEH. HOWEVER I THINK THAT BUICK COULD HAVE DONE BETTER ON THE INSIDE TRIMS. POSSIBLY A POWERED BACK GATE, GLOVE BOX LIGHT, I DON'T THE PARKING BRAKE RELEASE,
ALTHOUGH THE RIDE ISN'T THAT BAD I THINK THAT DIFFERENT SHOCKS WOULD GIVE A BETTER OVERALL RIDE IN BUMPY ROADS....read morehide

- flexible interior, easy access, handles very well in strong wind; great visibility
- no nav system; electric doors are unreliable; no auto dim rear view mirror;
Handles very well in extremely strong winds; rides a little bumpy but not uncomfortable. Good pickup and cool options such as air hose that can be used on bike tires and beach floats. 110 volt outlet lets us use a computer or video game. Excellent visibility from drivers position both forward and backward. Can tow trailer up to 3500 pounds. I think the Terraza was released before all the bugs were worked out and it is missing some options / standard equipment that it ought to have available -- but overall it is a very nice van and is much nicer than the Ford Windstar we traded in on it....read morehide
