2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Review
This vehicle does what it's designed to do, but not with the enthusiasm that GM touts. Our Rendezvous is a good people (mainly children) hauler and performs admirably in snowy conditions. Unfortunately, it is plagued with numerous rattles and mechanical defects due to poor workmanship. It stickered at $37,470 and is now worth $16,000 with only 27k on the odometer, 1 1/2 years old, and in excellent shape. Driveability is only marginal, as trying to maintain highway speeds with it's anemic engine can produce a sore foot if the cruise control isn't used. The weak engine and high profile contribute to abysmal economy...17mpg average.
Favorite Features
The heated/memory seats are excellent in quality and comfort. The heads-up display comes in very handy, as the instruments are hard to read during the day. OnStar, memory fobs, and leveling air compressor are noteworthy features.
Suggested Improvements
A more powerful and economical engine (a 225hp 3.6 is coming in 02/04) should have been in place from the beginning. Get rid of the cheap interior cladding and address the mechanical shortcomings.
