2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Rendezvous is a well designed SUV. It is comfortable to drive both on open road and in town. Forward Visibility is excellent although the backward view is somewhat restricted. It drives with a feeling of power and grace. Possibly slightly underpowered however.


Favorite Features

Extremely quiet ride even at high speeds. Suprisingly Good Gas Mileage (22 mpg). Accurate Magnetic Compass is a pleasant surprise. Sound system is excellent. Sensor laden i.e., lots of sensors such as hatch unlatched, door ajar, Gas low, Turn indicator on, ...


Suggested Improvements

Improve rearward visibility by redesign of rear and side rear windows. Improve the inside environment controls which are poorly designed. Virtually Impossible to shut down the heating/cooling system.

2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the best vehicle that I have owned. Every person that has been a passenger or driven the SUV has expressed the comfort of the vehicle. It has been driven in deep snow and heavy rain and it handles like a dream. Power is less than I would like, esp., going up hills and mountains in Western Maryland. With careful and conservative driving, it can get 24 mpg going to and from work and better on long trips. Any future vehicle will definitely have AWD. It is simply the only way to go - drive!!


Favorite Features

The comfort of the ride, the interior and the front design are my favorites.


Suggested Improvements

A little more horsepower and an automtic rear hatch opener.

2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Love to drive this SUV, but have had many mechanical problems. Speed sensors, front brakes and rotors, rear brakes and rotors, broken wiper motor. For 25,000 miles, this seems a bit excessive in the wear department.


Favorite Features

AWD, stuck in snow only once, drove on top of a four foot drift. Roomy, large cargo area, almost wasted space for us.


Suggested Improvements

Fix mechanical problems. Stronger motor, down on power.

Review

I found this car in the back lot of my deaership. It was a leftover 2002 and I bought it in December 2003. I was given a good deal on it.


Favorite Features

The traction and handling is great (I live in Vermont...so it does great in snow). I also love the gas mileage approx 25 mpg on highway, sometimes more.


Suggested Improvements

Well the rear liftgate stinks...theres just a fixed handle...so you either have to open it with the remote or a switch in the front. I know the newer modles have a touch sensor...but I still find the fixed handle a pain.
