2006 Buick Rendezvous CX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I have owned this Rendezvous for 3 yrs. It is an excellent vehicle. Even 3 yrs old there are no rattles or decline of quality. Have not had 1 single mechanical problem of any kind. Totally dependable. With 3rd row seating down can fit 4 suitcases and 4 sets of golf clubs in the Rendezvous for a golf trip. Perfect! Gets 26 mpg on the hwy. Being a Minnesota vehicle I use both air and heater and the heating/cooling systems work perfectly,quietly and quickly.
Automatic headlight/dashlight sensor that turns your headlights and dash lights on automatically in dim light conditions. Great safety feature. The Buick quiet tuning. Wow! Interior cabin quiet even at hwy speed is exceptional. The ride is remarkably smooth and very comfortable.
A 5 or 6 speed transmission would have been preferable to the standard 4 speed. The entire center overhead sunglass holder compartment is plastic. Kind of a cheap touch in an otherwise classy vehicle. Don't expect cheap plastic in a Buick.
