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


Review

Leased my Rendezvous brand new in 2006 and bought out lease in 2009 because I have never owned a more reliable and dependable vehicle than this. Buick hit it out of the park with the 2006 model yr. and wish they were still being built since the Enclave is too big and much more expensive than the Rendezvous. For an Suv it handles very well, it's a Buick so it is very well appointed. Gas MPG is remarkable getting 20 mpg in town and 27 mpg on the hwy. Other than oil changes and the 30,000 mile maintenance, I have not spent one cent on my Rendezvous!


Best Features

The backing warning feature is superb. It works every time. I like the 3rd row seating capability on the occasion that I've needed it and with the 3rd row folded down there is plenty of room. I can fit 4 suitcases and 4 golf bags back there, which I have done every yr. for the last 3 yrs.


Worst Features

Would have liked to have seen a rubber liner installed on the top of the rear bumper to protect the finish from scratches and chips while loading vehicle like you see in most Suv's today.

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


Review

Leased this car in January 2006, and love it. We plan to buy out the lease in Apr. 2009. We have every option but the sunroof. We get about 25 MPH on the road and 19Mph in city driving. The car has more storage room than my 2007 GMC Envoy. The residuals have come down dramatically and we can now buy it at a resonable price. My wife is estatic.


Best Features

Heated seats and folding rear seats are great features. Bottom line excellent car


Worst Features

Rear bumper guard.

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


Review

I have been really happy with this car. It gets around 23-25 mpg on the highway at speeds of 70-80 mph. The around town mileage has been 21.5 mpg. It rides great and the seats are really nice. It is a CXL with sunroof and every other option minus DVD and navigation but the Garmin nuvi 550 takes care of that. I've just travelled 7,000 miles in the last 3 months across the country, no problems at all. I highly recommend this car.


Best Features

Ride, comfort just great


Worst Features

It is no longer in production but they should have had an automatice tailgate.

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


Review

Super stable, rides on rails. Wife just rolled it upside down into a pine tree after hydroplaing in snow melt. Though totaled out, frame absorbed entire impact and vehicle crumpled in right places to absorbe roll-over. We have a duplicate on hold pending insurance payout. Like previous comments, it may start out as wife's car, but it will grow on you.


Best Features

Leather seats and ample leg room.


Worst Features

Make satellite radio and heated seats a standard item. Also, power the lift gate.

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


Review

I have owned this Rendezvous for 3 yrs. It is an excellent vehicle. Even 3 yrs old there are no rattles or decline of quality. Have not had 1 single mechanical problem of any kind. Totally dependable. With 3rd row seating down can fit 4 suitcases and 4 sets of golf clubs in the Rendezvous for a golf trip. Perfect! Gets 26 mpg on the hwy. Being a Minnesota vehicle I use both air and heater and the heating/cooling systems work perfectly,quietly and quickly.


Best Features

Automatic headlight/dashlight sensor that turns your headlights and dash lights on automatically in dim light conditions. Great safety feature. The Buick quiet tuning. Wow! Interior cabin quiet even at hwy speed is exceptional. The ride is remarkably smooth and very comfortable.


Worst Features

A 5 or 6 speed transmission would have been preferable to the standard 4 speed. The entire center overhead sunglass holder compartment is plastic. Kind of a cheap touch in an otherwise classy vehicle. Don't expect cheap plastic in a Buick.
