2004 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I've had this car for 4 years, and it's been a delight. Comfortable but with all the functionality of clunky SUVs. Only one recall, so it was well-built. I've had no (knock wood!) major problems with it; just typical maintenance issues. I'd buy another in a minute if GM still made them. Was never crazy about the exterior design, but the interior is what I see most, and I love it. Got great mileage until recently (probably need to change fuel filter or something). I'll be passing this car onto my daughter when she turns 16 next year, and feel good that she'll be in a safe, reliable car. I've been spoiled, and I'm not sure I can ever return to a sedan!
Extra row of seats and storage space in back. Nice design features (place for glasses), OnStar, garage door transmitter. Love sitting high--but not so high that I feel off kilter. Great handling.
