2004 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I enjoy not climbing down into or up out of the vehicle. We have bee surprised by the leg room in back, easy of entry and the carrying capacity, esp the size and shape of the opening.


Best Features

Easy of entry front and back. Substantially easier to get into the back seat that Ford and Chevy full size SUV's. And it is a mid-size with much better mileage.


Worst Features

The very small storage compartments in the rear inside panels shoud be much larger.

Review

Drives very well. Good gas mileage. Has much more room than most SUVs. After 1 year the rear tires became so noisy the radio was useless. Dealer said this was common on the Rendezvous. Tthey rotated the tires. It took only 3k miles to ruin the other 2 tires. Next excuse was that the Firestone tires don't work well on this SUV. Will consider another make or dealer next time.


Best Features

Very roomy. Comfortable


Worst Features

Very noisy.

Review

The vehicle drives and handles great. The inside dash is rather plain and the rear view for backing is not good. It is difficult to see when backing. The rear lift gate does not lift well during cold weather. The lift shocks were replaced by the dealer but there is not differenc. During warm weather the tail gate lifts up all the way with no extra effort but in cold weather you have to push it up to open. The heating and cooling is marginal. The dealer could not find the problem with not enough heat in cold weather. I found the problem was with the control knob, you have to flick it back and forth to get it to work for more heat. The dealer has not fixed this problem.


Best Features

Driving and handling is good for this vehicle and on the interstate using cruise control, actual mileage check was 26.1 MPG.


Worst Features

Improvements for this vehicle are backing visability and better heating and cooling controls. Antilock brakes should be a standard feature. The vehicle should also be assembled in the USA instead of Mexico!

Review

The Ultra comes with a 3.6 VVT with provides plenty of power 245 hp to be exact. I have put 5 people in it and drove it to the mountains and it pulled just fine. I would say I am pleased with it thus far.

Review

I have this SUV almost 3 yrs. I love it. The nav screen is incredible and our trips are much more comfortable. I get tons of compliments on the drive and looks int and ext. It may not be as zippy as others but this SUV has everything else. The movable 2nd and 3rd row make getting in and out easy and the seats are comfortable and well made. I have not had any problems with it and am sorry I did not buy outright but leased. I will be trying to by out the lease since this SUV has everything we need as a family of 6.


Best Features

3 rows of confortable seats and navigation system with xm radio. Easy to drive, lots of features that you really use instead of ones that are just there.


Worst Features

I would love to see this with a hybrid engine for even better mileage and heated 2nd row seats.
