2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
We bought a Certified Rendezvous and a Certified Pacifica within a month of each other. I took the Pacifica originally because it looks and feels sportier than the Redndezvous. Unfortunately after communing in the Pacifica for a few weeks I found the ride to be quite uncomfortable for someone my height (6'4"). I eventually traded it to my wife for her Rendezvous. I like the sporty look and feel of the Pacifica, but I appreciate the unbelievably comfortable seats (wide, high, heated) and soft ride of the Buick.
All wheel drive, heads-up display (sounds gimmicky but you learn to like it), very comfortable seats, high seating position, openness of cabin and third row seating
The All wheel drive system is too noticeable (you will notice the transfer of power). The operation of the AWD system in my Pacifica is invisible by comparison. The lack of a rear hatch latch is annoying. Makes you either go back up front and "pop" in or reach into your pocket to "beep" it
