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


Review

We have had the vehicle for about 18 months / 15,000 miles now and have had ZERO problems. I do not regret getting the front wheel drive model. Snow tires on all 4s and traction control is all that is needed. Very comfortable vehicle for those that want a mini van or a SUV. Engine has plenty of power and great gas mileage.


Best Features

Gas mileage and reliablity.


Worst Features

Dash gauges need to be brighter or more contrast. Rear hatch needs a power up and down option.

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


Review

This review is for the ULTRA. The car is nice to look at and quite comfortable to drive, but the maintenance is killing us. With just a few miles on the car we're on a first name basis with the shop mechanics! The brakes make noise (clacking) all the time and is really anoying, the AWD system was the last thing to fail. Buick, great try, but I'll stick with Acura, or Lexus from now on.


Best Features

Looks good! The ride is comfortable and very roomy.


Worst Features

The NAV system is awkward to use and the rear visability is lethal! A back support would be nice too.

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


Review

I've had this vehicle for 8 months now. It had 22k miles on it when purchased as a used rental vehicle, and now at 30k, there are no problems yet. I love the handling and the comfort. I'm not too crazy about the outside looks, and being 25, male, and single w/out kids, I'm the only person in my demographic with this SUV. I Upgraded the stereo and it sounds wonderful. I tested almost every mid-size SUV out there and nothing compared to the ride and interior stylings of the Rendezvous!


Best Features

Center console, dash/displays, comfort of seats, lumbar support, and headlights that automatically come on and shut off.


Worst Features

The back is hard to keep clean, and I wish the back window would open seperate from the hatch. Exterior styling could be a little hipper.

Review

Very comfortable, fun to drive. I wish there was some way to keep the dust from collecting on the back. Hard to keep clean because of this. Wished it had more "zip" when I go to pass someone.


Best Features

Love the look. Fun to drive. Very comfortable. Rides really nice.


Worst Features

Maybe work on the gas mileage a little. And find some way to keep the dust from settling on the back.

Review

We have only had the vehicle for 2 months but we are happy with the comfortable ride and the roominess inside. We test drove many SUV's and while this one wasn't rated the best, we both liked the ride and how it handled. We feel it has adequate power and the gas mileage is no worse then my 1995 Mercury Mystique. We got 24 mpg on the highway trip we just took and are getting 17/18 mpg in city driving. The vehicle still has 24,000/2yrs of bumper to bumper warrenty left. We like the styling of the vehicle, doesn't look like all the other SUV's on the road.


Best Features

Smooth ride, roominess, automatic lights coming off and on. Turn signal alert. Plenty of storage compartments and huge storage area without the 3rd row seat.


Worst Features

We wanted a reasonable priced SUV so we didn't get a lot of the extras that are on some models.
