2006 Buick Rendezvous CX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


This is the Rendezvous Buick should of had when staring the RDV line. I purposely sought out to buy the Rendezvous with the 3.5 engine when I heard about it. I previously owned a 2002 CX 3.4 that was slightly underpowered at times when you needed power, but got good gas mileage. This 3.5 engine gives me better mileage and lots of power. Unfortunately to buy this model requires buying all the bells and whistles. A small trade off for a wonderful engine. Have owned it for almost a year and nothing wrong with it (unlike my 2002). Up to 2006, the Rendezvous had the biggest cargo room of any midsize SUV/CUV and tied for top spot in fuel efficiency. Too bad they are ending the Rendezvous, I would buy another (3rd) one!

Best Features

Engine! 3.5L variable valve timing, 245 hp & 255 tq. Climate control, driver memory, and heads up display! 108 cu ft of cargo room (biggest in its class) and all the seats can come out to create lots of cargo room or versatility (all other SUVs lack this!) Great mileage. Very comfy on 20hr rd trips

Worst Features

Nothing, except to keep making the Rendezvous! It's perfected and Buick goes and pulls it. :(
