2007 Buick Terraza Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Buick joined the minivan market for 2005 with the Terraza, which features sliding side doors and a low step-in height.

Two versions are offered: the base CX and uplevel CXL. For 2007, the 3.9-liter V-6 with variable valve timing is the standard engine, while the all-wheel drive and independent rear suspension options have been discontinued. A flex-fuel model, compatible with gasoline, E85 or a combination of the two, will be available later in the model year.

The 2007 Terraza comes with redesigned 17-inch eight-spoke aluminum wheels and is available in three new exterior colors: Light Quartz Metallic, Polar Blue Metallic and Gold Mist Metallic. Traction control, an electronic stability system and General Motors' OnStar Turn-by-Turn navigation system now come standard on all models.


Exterior
Sport utility vehicle-like styling features of the Terraza include its closer-to-vertical squared-off front fascia and its tall hood. Prominent C-pillars and 17-inch wheels are also supposed to bring SUVs to mind. Gently sculpted forms, on the other hand, are strictly Buick in nature. The Terraza's familiar grille is a variant on the traditional Buick design. Vertical bars and a chrome surround are meant to reflect Buick's Centieme concept vehicle.

The Terraza's exterior is highlighted by bright chrome accents on the door handles, among other places, and "Buick" is embossed into the bright-finished rear license plate brow. Built on a 121.1-inch wheelbase, t...

The Terraza's familiar grille is a variant on the traditional Buick design. Vertical bars and a chrome surround are meant to reflect Buick's Centieme concept vehicle.

The Terraza's exterior is highlighted by bright chrome accents on the door handles, among other places, and "Buick" is embossed into the bright-finished rear license plate brow. Built on a 121.1-inch wheelbase, the Terraza is 205 inches long overall and 72 inches tall.


Interior
Seven occupants fit inside the Terraza. The seats have contrasting-colored piping, and leather trim is available. The third row features a removable 50/50-split, folding bench seat. An available power bucket seat operates via remote control and rotates, extends and lowers out of the vehicle to assist entry and exit for the disabled.

The three-spoke steering wheel has leather accents. Woodgrain is used on the instrument panel. A woodgrain-trimmed gearshift knob is used in the CXL. Cargo volume is 74.1 cubic feet with the rear seat folded and 26.9 cubic feet with all the seats up. An overhead console and rail system are standard, as is a DVD-based rear entertainment system.

An available PhatNoise media system offers a variety of multimedia capabilities, including MP3 and MPEG storage and playback. Other options include XM Satellite Radio and a rear DVD player with auxiliary video and audio inputs. The available "tri-mode" entertainment system allows occupants to listen to DVDs, CDs and the radio simultaneously through the speakers and dual-channel wireless headphones.


Under the Hood
The now-standard 3.9-liter V-6 features variable valve timing, develops 240 horsepower and 240 pounds-feet of torque, and drives a four-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the Terraza can tow a 3,500-pound trailer.

Safety
All-disc antilock brakes are standard on all Terrazas, and side-impact airbags for the first and second rows are optional on the CX and standard on the CXL.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
