2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Test drove this vehicle. I like the inside "feel" of it better than any other SUV I've driven in its price range. It drives comfortably in town. On the highway, road and tire noise are muted but there is an excessive (annoying) amount of wind noise. If they get the aerodynamics working a bit better, this will be a quiet vehicle. The biggest concern is reliability. While Buick LeSabres for example are known for their quality, the engine in this SUV is the same as that used in the Pontiac Aztec.
Inside comfort in general -- nice console and controls, comfortable mixed cloth/leather seats.
Work on the aerodynamics to reduce highway wind noise. MPH Display is acceptable but a little goofy. Assure those of us who don't trust Pontiac quality (or American car quality in general) that the Rendezvous is reliable.
