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


Review

Our Rendezvous CX-Plus all-wheel-drive
has very low levels of road and engine
noise and is incredibly smooth -- a
merciful reprieve from our noisy 2001
Accord EX. Interior is well thought-out
and a nice place to be. Seats are the
most comfortable I've ever experienced
over long distances. Interior is multi-
configurable, has lots of space and a
flat floor. Handling is secure.
Suspension damping could be about 5-
percent stiffer to cope with large road
undulations at highway speeds. Gas
mileage on a recent 900-mile road trip
was 22 mpg at 75-to-80 mph with air
conditioner running.


Best Features

Huge storage console; great stereo; super-comfy seats; quiet, smooth ride; gigantic outside rear-view mirrors are panoramic and wonderful; excellent build quality; absence of squeaks or rattles


Worst Features

Silver gauge cluster looks cool but is hard to read in shadow or with sunglasses on; suspension could be slightly firmer; funky-looking profile and rear end, but it's growing on me.

Review

I had the opportunity to drive a
Rendezvous as a rental vehicle and fell
in love with it. The ride is more like
a car than any other van or SUV I've
owned/driven. The interior was
designed by women and its very roomy
and comfortable. The dealer was very
fair and forthright and gave me an
excellent trade in on my existing
vehicle and a great price on the new
Rendezvous. We loved it so much, we
went back the next week and traded our
other vehicle and bought a second one!


Best Features

Rides smooth and has lots of room inside


Worst Features

Radio, a/c, other knobs/ controls could be little more upscale. The Ultra version has bigger engine if you want more power.

Review

The new monotone paint looks great. many
good comments from passerby . 7500 miles
& no problems. A trip to Glacier & Banff was
very comfortable. XM radio is great & Onstar
reassuring. Although not a sportscar, it is a
great blend of utility, ride & looks. Back-up
alarm offsets problems backing up like my
other SUV's.


Best Features

Large side mirrors. Storage in center console is huge. XM radio. Good milage. Averaging about 19mpg with the 240 hp VVT engine on regular gas. Heads-up display.


Worst Features

The vehicle would benefit from a slightly stiffer suspension & tighter steering.

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


Review

Purchased a CXL with the 3.6L engine.
only two months old, but so far so
good. Have driven it around town, on
long highway trips and up and down
hilly areas. Have none of the
complaints about the undersized
engine, well worth the added money.
the ride is smooth and stable. After
the rebates its so cheap relative to
the Acura and Lexus.


Best Features

Smoothride and flexible interior (with the third row seat).


Worst Features

A power rear hatch would be helpful. It's Ok for me I am 6'3", but my wife is 5'3" and that's a little hard for her to close.
