My 2004 Buick has 168000 miles on it. I've replace the right front hup, put two sensors on it and it will pass inspection tomorrow. Flush the transmission at 100,000 miles keep the oil changed sooner than the book says, keep the tires in check. Best driving, riding SUV I've ever drove.

Over all my car has been great. I bought the car 5 years old with 110K. I now have over 185k and no major problems.

Thought all the bugs would be gone by the 3rd year. Problems with brakes at 25k miles, window wiring, transmission at 79k miles, fuel tank and we will see what is next.. I felt good about buying a buick, but now I will never purchase one again. Probably done with GM. Sad the American car keeps on disappointing.

I love my Rendezvous. It is a 2004 AWD and will soon celebrate her 14th Bday. I chuckle at the Buick commercials about 'not your grandma's Buick', as I have grandpups. Such a smooth ride. I love driving it. I sorted reviews in date order prior to mine, the man mentioned a wet floor. If his came off same line as mine, that is a factory defect, I learned this in 2014. Always had wet carpet but I had a garage. Then I moved and it was outside, got very wet. I think because i lived in Iowa and had snowy feet, went thru 100 year floods about every year, and lived on a muddy gravel road, i chalked it up to that. The seal was not tight on the window. The GM dealer had the window guy work on it, not a problem. I live in Iowa, in 2016 I drove it to Pueblo, Colorado to my sisters for Thanksgiving. On the way home I hit 170,000 miles in Lincoln, NE. Averaged about 20 mpg. Prior to that (with high mileage) I drove it to Mall of America twice. I loaded it up with stuff my daughter wanted from IKEA and it fit in the back end well. I have never worried about reliability. Repairs have been wheel bearings, which is a known problem to GM on this model. I think at about 130,000 the differential fluid dripped off the back, so some gaskets or seals were replaced - since took it in right away, no major damage done. Had the tranny fluid and radiator flushed at this time. At 160,000 the oil pan was replaced along with the transmission fluid lines. In 2016 a new tire rod on on right side (pot hole side of the road) and in 2017 a muffler. Registration is $51/year, runs like a dream and I will keep it for a very long time. I was told I got the "good engine". Has the best heater and a/c unit you could want. I take care of her, and she takes care of me :) :) :)

We love our 2004 Rendezvous for the all over performance, smooth ride and storage capability. It's a good family car. There is one design flaw that needs to be fixed: Speedometer has a silver background and black numbers. During dawn/twilight, it is nearly impossible to see the numbers. The black fades into the silver. During these light conditions, there is no way to see my speed and other guages.
