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


Review

I purchased this SUV for my wife and
she totally loves it. I have grown to
appreciate it as well except for the
sqeaks from the dash that the dealer
says they cannot hear?? I bought this
one with almost every option
available. It would have been simpler
to purchase a CXL that has the same
options standard!


Best Features

On Star, tight turning circle, I can park this large SUV almost anywhere, comfy leather seats, very roomy.


Worst Features

Quieter fan, stricter quality control, more power from the base engine. The competition make 240HP form 3.5 liter engines

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


Review

For the most part I love my SUV. It's
very comfortable, the seats are soo
soft. It handles well. The gas
mileage, well, I get 250 mi to a tank
in the city a little more on the hwy.
My biggest disappointment was that I
was told that I could purchase the 3rd
row seat later. However, when I went
back to purchase it, I was told that
you can not purchase the 3rd row seat
after the fact it must be purchased
when you purchase the vehicle. I have
called Buick, GMAC and many dealerships
and this is the case. So if you have a
CX model and want the 3rd row seat, you
will have to have it installed by
someone who customizes trucks.


Best Features

I love the controls on the steering wheel. I love that I can raise my seat up or down since I am short.


Worst Features

The sideview mirrors are huge, they could make them a little smaller.

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


Review

Vehicle is versatile - big enough for
people and sports gear and can still
fit into any parking space. Fun w/
surprisingly positive fuel economy. I
have been nothing but pleased with this
vehicle and with my selling dealer.
Although I bought and have 0% for 5
years, I will probably purchase another
Rendezvous before they stop making
them!


Best Features

Split/folding and removeable rear seats, storage in console and for cell phones. Rear seats that recline for happy passengers is great for long road trips and extra tall friends.


Worst Features

Only feature(s) not crazy about are that radio knobs and all other controls are replaced as an entire unit, vs. just replacing the burnt out bulb or paint chipped knob. I also realize that that is a Delphi issue as well as GM for purchasing from Delphi.

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


Review

Overall, I like driving the 2003 Rendez-
vous. It's comfortable and typically
enjoyable to drive.


Best Features

Interior has a lot of room, the ride is very quiet and comfortable. There is a lot of storage space when the seats are taken out of the vehicle.


Worst Features

Needs to have more horsepower leading to better accelaration. The reae seats could be lighter for moving them in and out of the vehicle. Aluminum rims should be offered on the CXL package.

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


Review

For the size of the vehicle, it handles
really well and is quite comfortable.
I have had several SUV's and find this
one to have the least 'truck-like'
ride. Great vehicle.


Best Features

Steering wheel radio controls, AWD


Worst Features

windshield wipers design
