2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Vehicle is versatile - big enough for
people and sports gear and can still
fit into any parking space. Fun w/
surprisingly positive fuel economy. I
have been nothing but pleased with this
vehicle and with my selling dealer.
Although I bought and have 0% for 5
years, I will probably purchase another
Rendezvous before they stop making
them!


Best Features

Split/folding and removeable rear seats, storage in console and for cell phones. Rear seats that recline for happy passengers is great for long road trips and extra tall friends.


Worst Features

Only feature(s) not crazy about are that radio knobs and all other controls are replaced as an entire unit, vs. just replacing the burnt out bulb or paint chipped knob. I also realize that that is a Delphi issue as well as GM for purchasing from Delphi.

2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, I like driving the 2003 Rendez-
vous. It's comfortable and typically
enjoyable to drive.


Best Features

Interior has a lot of room, the ride is very quiet and comfortable. There is a lot of storage space when the seats are taken out of the vehicle.


Worst Features

Needs to have more horsepower leading to better accelaration. The reae seats could be lighter for moving them in and out of the vehicle. Aluminum rims should be offered on the CXL package.

2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

For the size of the vehicle, it handles
really well and is quite comfortable.
I have had several SUV's and find this
one to have the least 'truck-like'
ride. Great vehicle.


Best Features

Steering wheel radio controls, AWD


Worst Features

windshield wipers design

2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This expensive SUV is a dog with a
jerky GM transmission, shoddy interior
construction, high body repair costs,
wrose-than-usual SUV rear blind spots,
and a "tippy" high center of gravity.
I inherited this from a relative, had
to have a deep, long scratch on the
driver's side repaired (total cost over
$5K), and then traded it in (in
excellent condition after repair, with
low mileage) for $3000 less than Blue
Book. Why do you think they're giving
$5000 rebates on the 2005s? Nobody
will buy these things, and I wouldn't
be suprised if they are discontinued
soon. It's an Edsel, folks!


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Replace engine and body with something that drives well and is attractive.

Review

This vehicle is severely underpowered
considering the poor gas mileage I get
with it. The interior is nice and
spacious. The passenger rear door
often doesn't close properly and hasn't
since the day I bought it. GM says
it's an air pressure issue?!? Finally,
I had the roof rack rip off at 40 mph
loaded within owner's manuals specs.
Again GM claims no responsibility.


Best Features

Heads up display, memory seats, XM radio, spacious leg room in 2nd row seats.


Worst Features

More power or better gas mileage. Fix design flaws. I'm waiting for the typical GM electrical failures to begin.
