2003 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great SUV. Very comfortable to drive and ride in. Love the third row option. Could be a bit more snazzy and cool. Have made some good improvements since I purchased though. Friends still refer to it as a minivan despite SUV title.


Best Features

Backing up sensors, third row cupholders for middle and third row


Worst Features

Style more like an SUV, less like a minivan

2003 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The 2003 Redezvous is a great veichle to drive. The truck is more like a luxury minivan, it has everything that someone looking for luxury would want. It drives great, and is perfect for out of town driving.


Best Features

The ultrasonic parking sensor, the large outside mirrors tilt down automatially when in reverse, the heated seats, the foldable third row, the OnStar system, and the comfort of the second row seats.


Worst Features

No improvements.

Review

I was the fan and proud to use GM vehicles, but now I will never buy or recommend to buy GM. Can you believe transmission problem at 63,000K.One problem after the another. Tapping noise in the morning and the dealer says it is normal. Does not have enough power. Going on the hill looks likes 4 cylinder car will do better. Bad mileage. Noise from the front wheel, had to replace both bearings. Back latch recall. It should be discontinued. I should have listen to my friend and bought some Japenese car instead. I will never recommend this junk to anybody.


Worst Features

GM engineers try to do some homework first before designing something good.

Review

We bought this vehicle because it has enough head room for me to drive it. I am 6'7" and I do not fit in many vehicles GM makes. The full size pickups have less head room. During warranty they changed 3 front wheel bearings, stereo speakers and 2 starters. Now at 88,000 miles the intake manifold gasket is bad and I am getting quotes from $400.00 to $1200. A piece of Mexican made junk!


Best Features

It is easy to get in and out of. My wife had back surgery and this is the main reason we bought this ugly thing. Interior room is decent but could use more leg room.


Worst Features

Reliability has and will be GM's downfall. This 100,000 mile warranty will be their death wish. No way are they going to be able to afford to repair this junk fleet. I work for them at an assembly plant I know if they wasted less money on stupid quality programs and more on reliability they'd be better.

2003 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is only the second GM vehicle I have ever owned - and the last. The first GM vehicle I owned was a Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s - enough said - and incredibly, the Rendezvous is even worse! Engine, transmission, AWD drive train, climate control, you name it. I thought in the three decades plus since the Vega, they would have learned how to build cars; no such luck.


Best Features

After three years, I cannot think of one.
