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


Review

Bought this Rendezvous used when it was 2 yrs old. A/C didn't work and dealership hid that fact. Had electrical problems and had to pay to have them fixed. Then stereo blew and couldn't use CD player at all! Low price as a used minivan but many problems!


Best Features

Heated front seats


Worst Features

Electrical system!

Review

This car is the best car I have ever owned and I am 71 years old. We purchased the car new at the beginning of 2002. It has been a pleasure to drive. The lowest our gas mileage has been is 15 mpg and that was in stop and go freeway driving in San Diego. We ususally get 17 to 18 mpg around town and 23 to 26 mpgs on trips.It's comfort and dependability are unequaled. My only complaint is that Buick stopped making them.

Review

I bought this car because my wife liked the looks of it. I should have researched it more. In the span of 80,000 miles we have had to replace front wheel bearings 3 times. Very weak on engine power. Make sure you have plenty of room to pass. On the positive side, we bought it with 123,000 on it and just recently turned 200,000 with same engine and transmission. Warning, don't get a model with the self-leveling shocks. Can only get through GM at a cost of $250 per shock not including labor. Real joke. Would not buy Rendezvous


Best Features

Heated seats and third row back seat. Automatic climate control.


Worst Features

Should have put the 3.8liter in instead of 3.4L. The lower fascia trim is cheap and broke off after pulling over a parking curb.

Review

Where do I begin - purchased this vehicle 7 months ago - in that time have replaced a head gasket, only to put a new engine in and ABS sensor board and brake line rusted (just replaced). Over $4000 on this vehicle already - practically new - wonderful to drive, comfort level way up there just to bad that it has cost me so much to keep running in such a short time.


Best Features

Comfort - the seat warmers do come in handy in a Saskatchewan winter!


Worst Features

More care has to be taken on the product. Now-a-days you spend so much on a vehicle - just would be reassuring to know that the reliability is there.

Review

Bought the car as GM Certified, NOT. Serious mechanical problems from the get go. Years later, still having difficulties - car has turned off on the highway; fuel gauge changes constantly; turn on car and drive but then turn it off and it does NOT restart; dangerous, dangerous vehicle.. Now we are stuck with it, who would purchase it from us? GM is NEVER, EVER helpful... No wonder they are losing billions. Should the company ever go bankrupt, just have them survey the car owners.


Worst Features

Provide 2002 Rendezvous owners with an exchange.. to a car that is not so dangerous.
