2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I reluctantly leased my Rendezvous CXL,
never having owned an SUV/minivan type
vehicle. I am impressed so far at the
build quality and amount of features
for the money vs. a "traditional" truck-
based SUV. Much more room, lower step
in height and the Rendezvous is much
quieter. I have been surprised at how
much I like it so far.
Steering wheel radio controls, dual-
zone climate control. The eight-
speaker stereo rocks. I like the third
seating with the folding seat.
Traction control will be nice in the
winter. A lot of people think it's a
Lexus. Smooth, quiet ride.
Lose the DRLs! The front shudders
around corners under moderate
throttle. Needs radio presets on the
wheel. I think the rear window styling
is awkward. Dash plastics feel cheap!
