I bought my 2002 Buick RDZ CXL near 80K miles for $5,500.
So far the only significant maintenance that I have had to perform is replacing an expensive sensor in the rear dif. that enabled AWD ($650). Ouch! But no problems otherwise. Nice luxury features for the money. Will probably be switching air ride shocks for stock shocks
because the air pump is going, but its just routine care. Not crazy about the lack of power, but it makes me drive slower (my wife is happier). Handled very well in the winter. Surprised that I don't need my truck every time I go to Lowes. Service Records did show that previous owner had trouble with intake. Not my dream car, but a nice cheap drive so far.

I have owned my 2002 Rendezvous for 6 years now.
I bought the car for $6,500. in 2007 and up till a year ago hardly had an issue.
Last year I did do some engine work and this year replaced the transmission.
The transmission was due to a solenoid.
This is a common flaw in these transmissions.
Other than that hardly any repairs.
I did also replace the wheel bearings this year.
Hoping to get another few years out of it.

It has been a pleasurable 3 years; I bought this car at a buy here pay here lot with 99000 miles on it, and it has been great. NO PROBLEMS, jus the usual breaks, oil change, and tires (which could get expensive).
If I were to say something negative I would probably tell you that it is a gas consumer.
Car has no problems, but as some of the reviews here I guess I'm a lucky one.
Who woulda thought -- a Buick SUV? More accurately, the Rendezvous is one of a new breed of crossover vehicles that combines the look and utility of an SUV with the comfort of a touring car. The Rendezvous is based on the Pontiac Aztek, itself based on GM's minivan family consisting of the Chevrolet Venture, Pontiac Montana and Oldsmobile Silhouette.
