2005 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We purchased 2005 Buick Rendezvous new. The principal reason for choosing it over the alternatives under consideration was the 26 MPG EPA on the sticker. The best we can get at normal interstate highway speeds is between 20 and 22 MPG. We like the vehicle, but are very disappointed in the mileage.


Best Features

Well built.


Worst Features

Improve mileage or accurately report estimates of interstate mileage.

Review

The one item that I have a concern is I cannot use my lighter to charge my cell phone as it blows the fuse. I was told to get an adapter and put it in before I use the charger for my cell phone. I have friends who have the same SUV, not the Ultra and they have no problems.


Best Features

OnStar and satellite radio.


Worst Features

None at this time, unless the cig. lighter can be improved.

Review

My Rendezvous has a very smooth, quiet ride. We have been on several trips and it rides great. The Rendezvous is not the best on gas and I must say that the third row of seats is only for small children and with it you have no luggage space


Worst Features

Third row seating and gas mileage

Review

This is my first SUV and I am very pleased with it. Gas mileage was better than I thought it would be. The exterior appearance is great. I have received many compliments on the appearance. I have had zero problems with it. The vehicle handles great and drivers perspective is one of a feeling of good control. The interior is a little on the plain side but then I also purchased the no frills version.


Best Features

Exterior Appearance and overall reliability.


Worst Features

Interior design and appearance could be improved.
