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


Review

I've owned this 2004 Rendezvous for 2
weeks now and I'm extremely
disappointed. As a matter of fact For a
car with a sticker price of $38,400 the
car is horrible. The ride is noisy &
sounds like you're sitting in a hollow
drum. The fuel gage fluctuates
dramatically, leaving you unsure of how
much gas you have.I guess you have to
be on flat ground to tell for sure) The
power steering pump was defective from
day one and has yet to be fixed. I've
been told repeatedly that there is
nothing wrong with the fuel gage. I
would not recommend this car to anyone,
it's not worth the money

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


Review

The car provides a very smooth ride,
but needs more power, especially during
initial acceleration when trying to
merge into traffic that's moving faster
(like freeway entrance ramps). Would
prefer if the rear captain's chairs
didn't have a headrest as the headrest
on the right passenger side entirely
obstructs the driver's view and creates
a dangerous blindspot. Was also
disappointed in the fuel economy. The
Rendezvous gets worse gas mileage than
my Chevy Silverado V8. For the money,
though, you get a lot of bells and
whistles.


Best Features

Auto-memory seats, back-up alarm, XM Radio, steering wheel control.


Worst Features

Better Fuel economy, better acceleration.

Review

Overall, we are very happy with the
RDZ with the bigger engine (it is not
an Ultra)providing strong
acceleration and good gas mileage.
Storage areas and interior
space are excellent. Rear windows roll
almost all the way down. Only
problem to date is a gas gauge (this
is a problem on some of the 2004
model, not earlier years). Viewing
while backing up is very difficult due
to back pillar design and
obstruction. Handling could be
tighter, but is good compared to
minivans and truck-based SUVs. Leather
interior is ok, but not upscale.


Best Features

3.6 ltr engine is impressive. Storage space, ergonomic design good. Rear window roll down. Rear audio controls for kids. Steering wheel radio controls. XM satellite radio = no commercials.


Worst Features

Fix the gas gauge\sensor problem in some 2004s. Replace control "stalk" w\ better design. Speedometer should be easier to read. Rework rear end design to permit reasonable backing up view. Add a better handling package possibly larger tires, stiffer suspension

Review

We have owned our Buick Rendezvous for
about 15 months. The ONLY thing I do
not like about this car is the design
of the rearend. I do not like seeing
all of the undercarriage exposured.
It is fun to drive and very comfortable
seating.
I have even had the opportunity to set
in the rear seating. For an adult it
seats 7 comfortably.


Best Features

Other than the rearend I love the way it looks, and rides. It drives well, and I feel safe.
