2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought in '04 with 25K miles - needed something that would fit a 6'3 teenage boy. It was great the first year or so, then started nickel-and-diming me. At 125K miles, and nickels and dimes are now up to $1000 repair bills. Poor mileage - gets about 20 mpg average. Cheap interior - coating chips off of radio and climate control knobs No interior release for the rear hatch. Now the exterior release doesn't work. Back seat fold-down handle slips. Can't find replacements anywhere. Replaced both front wheel bearings last year, just replaced rear wheel bearing and cylinder head gasket. Should replace rear suspension knuckles, but I'm still recovering from the head gasket replacement.
Good head room. DVD player is good for long trips.
Better quality for interior parts. Interior release for rear hatch.
