2004 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

What a nice car to drive! Plenty of room, nice ride, 6-cyl fuel economy-- gets great mileage for a SUV. Yes, gas is over $3 per gallon--but will I give up my Rendevous! Never!


Favorite Features

Great ride, very good AC system, lots of room

2004 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I enjoy not climbing down into or up out of the vehicle. We have bee surprised by the leg room in back, easy of entry and the carrying capacity, esp the size and shape of the opening.


Favorite Features

Easy of entry front and back. Substantially easier to get into the back seat that Ford and Chevy full size SUV's. And it is a mid-size with much better mileage.


Suggested Improvements

The very small storage compartments in the rear inside panels shoud be much larger.

Review

Drives very well. Good gas mileage. Has much more room than most SUVs. After 1 year the rear tires became so noisy the radio was useless. Dealer said this was common on the Rendezvous. Tthey rotated the tires. It took only 3k miles to ruin the other 2 tires. Next excuse was that the Firestone tires don't work well on this SUV. Will consider another make or dealer next time.


Favorite Features

Very roomy. Comfortable


Suggested Improvements

Very noisy.

Review

The vehicle drives and handles great. The inside dash is rather plain and the rear view for backing is not good. It is difficult to see when backing. The rear lift gate does not lift well during cold weather. The lift shocks were replaced by the dealer but there is not differenc. During warm weather the tail gate lifts up all the way with no extra effort but in cold weather you have to push it up to open. The heating and cooling is marginal. The dealer could not find the problem with not enough heat in cold weather. I found the problem was with the control knob, you have to flick it back and forth to get it to work for more heat. The dealer has not fixed this problem.


Favorite Features

Driving and handling is good for this vehicle and on the interstate using cruise control, actual mileage check was 26.1 MPG.


Suggested Improvements

Improvements for this vehicle are backing visability and better heating and cooling controls. Antilock brakes should be a standard feature. The vehicle should also be assembled in the USA instead of Mexico!

Review

The Ultra comes with a 3.6 VVT with provides plenty of power 245 hp to be exact. I have put 5 people in it and drove it to the mountains and it pulled just fine. I would say I am pleased with it thus far.
