2004 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I've had this car for 4 years. I'll be honest, it is a boring car. Yes, the interior is plasticy (which, after 4 years, has certainly worn down to the point of needing some sort of paint repair) and the exterior isn't exciting either. But, with that said, it has been a very reliable car. I've had one repair in 90K miles which I'm sure is pretty rare. The third row has been very convenient for the extra- people situations that pop up (and yes, adults can fit back there). You feel safe in this car.
Overall value for the price, reliability, 3rd row seat at a decent price
