    2002 Buick Rendezvous - FWD

    Pros: Storage capacity

    Cons: the 5 CD player means no tape player

    Advice: GO FOR IT!

    I absolutely LOVE this vehicle. It has the room & performance of a SUV, with the gas mileage of a van. I was amazed at the gas mileage. I also love the storage spaces in this vehicle. Even a place for my purse! No more sliding all over the car. In other words, this is my favorite car ever! (and I'm an old woman who has had a lot of cars)

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - FWD

    Pros: Fold down and removable seats plus flat floor providing much cargo space

    Cons: The engine lacks power

    Advice: Get the versatrak option

    The quality of ride is excellent for a vehicle of its size and capacity; the appearance is good as well. For an active person who wants to transport bikes or skis or trees for that matter, it's great. The one negative is the lack of power when accelerating from a dead stop. The vehicle needs more horsepower at its weight.

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - FWD

    Pros: The ride and handling is one of the best features ...

    Cons: I guess the worst feature would be the Firstone tires ... all the other packages have the upgrade.

    Advice: Get the versatility package. ... this is a cross between a Suv and the utility of a Van.

    I just purchased a Buick Rendezvous ... compared to other vehicles ... It does most things better ... it's roomier ... has a better ride ... it's all galvanized ... stainless exhaust and it also gets much better gas milage ... 26mpg ... is very good for a vehicle that weighs over 4,000lbs ... and 4,000lbs means safety ... there is no substitute for safety. I'm over 6ft tall and I fit ... my knees do not hit the dashboard and my hair doesn't hit the ceiling like most small SUV's that cost more than the Rendezvous. It handles very good and rides a lot more quiet than a mini van ... the 3.4V6 has 185HP which is more than most ... It should be just as reliable as my Montana which I've had for 3 years ... which means it is as reliable as any vehicle on the road ...

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - FWD

    Pros: Most 'luxury' optons come standard in base model.

    Cons: No power seats in base model

    Advice: Consider this SUV if you are looking for a multi-functional vehicle which is not a gas guzzler

    It is a multi-functional vehicle. It rides like a luxury car but has cargo space like an SUV

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - CX AWD

    Pros: On-dash display

    Cons: Quality of plastic on center console (no inlaid wood)

    Advice: Compare it to a Lexus or Mercedes, not a Ford Explorer

    The test drive was somewhat exciting for a Buick. The interior was quiet, the ride smooth and the features (inside and out) worthwhile. In comparison to a Lexus RX300 or Mercedes ML320, the Rendezvous provides as meany luxuries at a bigger value to me

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - CX AWD

    Pros: Styling

    Cons: Reduced towing capacity

    Advice: Compare the value and comfort to other SUVs

    I test drove the Rendezvous CXL hoping to find the 'comfortable family SUV'. I wasn't disappointed. The ride was very smooth much like a luxury mini-van. Pick up was adequate. I was most impressed with the interior features. The 2nd and 3rd row seating was roomier than most SUVs. Quality is evident throughout. This vehicle screams safety, style and comfort. I would think the Rendezvous will be popular with the 'moms'.

    2002 Buick Rendezvous - CX AWD

    Pros: Interior design is good

    Cons: sluggish on pickup from dead start

    Advice: Let Buick know that this needs to be changed

    I drove this vehicle with the full intention of purchasing one. I have waited for them to come out. The car is gorgeous in and out and seating is comfortable. Everything is great but the car doesn't have any pickup power from a dead start, with a fast start or a slow start with acceleration. There is plenty of power to pass when cruising. but very sluggish with slow driving. I still want this car but will not buy until the pickup is improved. I hope they change this as it was so disappointing for such a lovely car to not have the pickup power one needs to move quickly.
