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


Review

After few weeks owning this Buick I am totally in love with this vehicle. Gets 19.8 miles on average and I don't drive highways. All wheel drive is great. OnStar works great and lots of head room for 6'4 person. It is fun to drive and has soft ride. This is not off road AWD


Best Features

On board computer, OnStar, back up alarm, sound system


Worst Features

Better shocks for front

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


Review

I've had this car for 4 years. I'll be honest, it is a boring car. Yes, the interior is plasticy (which, after 4 years, has certainly worn down to the point of needing some sort of paint repair) and the exterior isn't exciting either. But, with that said, it has been a very reliable car. I've had one repair in 90K miles which I'm sure is pretty rare. The third row has been very convenient for the extra- people situations that pop up (and yes, adults can fit back there). You feel safe in this car.


Best Features

Overall value for the price, reliability, 3rd row seat at a decent price


Worst Features

Improve body style, plasticy interior

Review

I have owned and leased many cars, but this is the best by far! I will always buy Rendezvous from now on! This is a luxurious vehicle, classy, and reliable! I think that the others who have some complaints about it are isolated incidences. I am at 75,000 miles and I have had zero problems mechanically or otherwise. On top of that, this loaded model gives the driver and my family every accommodation. Heated seats, AWD, heads up display, moonroof, third row of seats, towing capability, comfort, power everything, rear park assist, lots of room and storage. It is sleek and stylish and has zip! Even my loaded CXL model is priced right for resale- not like the pricey foreign competitors. Go USA


Best Features

Third row of seats, AWD, moonroof, heads up display, rear park assist, roomy and spacious inside. Not one problem yet! Love this car! And, I get great gas mileage! I am also comforted in knowing that any repairs that may come in the future will not be as costly as foreign repairs and parts.


Worst Features

I honestly have no suggestions for improvement. I have been really happy with this vehicle.

Review

I had problems with the ignition from the start. This Buick refused to start and was at the garage three times for this and they could not find the problem. I moved and it stopped moving day and was repaired in a city. worked 6 months and did it again. They reprogramed the keys this time. Now just this month it did it again. Well this time it was the fuel pump - only 41000 miles and its gone $611 to repalce, thnk goodness for extened warranty. I have owned Buick for 20 yrs with no issues like this. My last Buick had 172,000 and no issues. There will not be another one after this one. Have to keep it as no one's buying them now. Just waiting to see what is going next.


Best Features

Seats & space


Worst Features

Wished they used better parts.

Review

We've had this car for 4 years and it has been mechanically sound. The vehicle averages about 21 mpg with the commute everyday. I have had to replace the left and right front power window regulators ($500 at the dealer-$289 at my mechanic) Then last month the power rear hatch assembly broke and cost another $300 to repair. Hatch assembly was originally covered under a recall but once it was performed in 2004 that "Closed out the recall" and this one's on me. They put in a faulty part and it's my fault! I had the same window problem with my 2001 Bonneville, right and left rear regulators had to be replaced.I'm entitled to GM supplier pricing but will think twice before buying another GM


Best Features

3rd seat for car pooling (Kids only - space is limited)


Worst Features

Window regulators, body hardware,
