After 24k miles,one of the best cars we have owned. We had 2 good Chrysler vans. This CXL replaced a noisy, cheapo, gas-guzzler Honda Odyssey ”XL”- no luxury features even available! Liked a rented Rendezvous on Florida vacation. Later compared it to the Lexus SUV -cramped and boring. The Buick is larger inside and $20K cheaper. Quiet, luxurious, versatile and 22.5 mpg thrifty. Comforts of the car are on par with our Avalon sedan. 7 people can ride if needed & with the middle seats out, we carry 3 dogs and luggage for trips. It has been great in the snow even in our hilly neighborhood. Love the car. Sad that GM made the dumb decision to discontinue & replace it with a bulbous gas guzzler.
Luxury gizmos, comfortable seats, quiet, roomy, flexible interior. 100,000-mile warranty instills confidence and helps resale. OnStar navigation with integrated car phone is great feature.
Rear lift-gate is heavy and needs lift-assist. The radio isn’t the best – but an I-Pod with its equalizer ramps up the sound system just fine. Better rear speakers would be nice. Heater/fan could be more powerful also.
