Not a bad grocery getter

2004 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
This vehicle has been very reliable. We purchased it with just 11,000 miles and now have over 105,000. The only work that has ever been done is routine maintenance. We have blown a few fuses with various electronic equipment, but they are easy to replace ourselves. From a style standpoint, we have gotten a few jabs over the years from our younger friends who think it looks like a van. This was our first Buick, and although they have a reputation for being popular among the over 60 crowd, you can't beat the reliability.
There is plenty of cargo room in the back and great storage throughout the vehicle for an SUV. The fold down seats even add more cargo space if needed, and they are easy to fold or remove. The interior cabin is bright with all of the windows.
The back bench is slightly hard and uncomfortable, but then again, we rarely have "grown ups" back there with two car seats. The door in the back is heavy and a reach for my small wife to pull down, especially after the handle broke.
