2002 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
By far the leader in midsized SUV comfort, ride and style, in the year 2001. Pontiac Aztec was weak. The Rendezvous is miles ahead of that vehicle. BR has 95 cu. ft. of cargo space. Comfort and quiet ride. Great sight lines. Nice rear views. Practical in every way. 3 rows comfortable seating for seven full sized adults. No one had that in 2001-02. All kinds of imitators in the 5 years since this stylish truck hit the market. Lexus. Benz. Nissan. BMW. You name it, they all followed after they saw the 100's of thousands of Buicks sold. Probably an underappreciated vehicle.
Great height, and view in all directions. Nice side mirrors. Gas milage. Huge cargo space, if needed. Soft, forward facing adult sized seats for seven people. 2nd row seats lift out of the way. My sisters expensive '06 Honda mini-van doesn't! I have to crawl between seats! Not Buick! Lift and go!
Sun visors a bit stuborn. Better directional A/C flow.
