2002 Buick Rendezvous SUV 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.


Best 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, ...


Worst Features

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 SUV 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!!


Best Features

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


Worst Features

A little more horsepower and an automtic rear hatch opener.

2002 Buick Rendezvous SUV 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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Fix mechanical problems. Stronger motor, down on power.

Review

Generally happy with the car. No major problems. Lights pulsated until dealer replaced alternator. Ride can be choppy. Poor fuel economy. Our Chevy Venture with same engine got better mileage! Engine has alot of valve noise (not expected in a Buick). Rear hatch pull strap broke/replaced under warranty. Hatch can be hard to pull down. Power hatch would be nice!. Love the AWD in snow. Seats have poor side bolsters and poor lumbar support. Seat belts difficult to engage when wearing winter coat. Can't justify $299 annual cost of Onstar. ABS work wonderfully. Rear visibility is poor, especially when backing up.


Best Features

Doors open wide for easy access. AWD works seamlessly, providing excellent handling and traction in snow. ABS system is flawless. Good sound from stereo. Gages easy to read


Worst Features

Better rear window visibility. Serious blind spots from C pillars. Improve fuel economy. Reduce engine noise. Improve support in seats.
