2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
This vehicle is overall an exceptional SUV. It handles well and is fun to drive. I find that at times the car is a little under-powered so I expect that the weight to horsepower is a bit off. I do however accept this minor issue in favor of better gas mileage. A larger engine would simply eat more fuel. My wife loves the elevated view of the road ahead and uses this car daily. Underhood maintenance is a bit difficult. The air cleaner replacement is a real pain. Generally this is a great car.
Large mirrors offer an excellent look to where you have been.
The third seat is very isolated and difficult to access. In 5 years this has been used exactly three times. Home service of underhood common items needs another look. In particular the air cleaner replacement is almost impossible.
