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


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
