Advice: Buy it don't wait.Great got it 8-04 have 29,986 miles not one problem, thats right not one problem all city driving in sales. Very nice ride and quite.
Pros: the room inside the vehicle
Cons: the horn, its kind of wimpy
Advice: buy one youll love itI Love my Rendezvous, It drives so quietly and so smooth. It is a great vehicle, at a great value.
Cons: Wimpy horn ( a safety issue)
Advice: Dont overpay because it is a Buick.Car handles okay and drives okay. It has very classy looks and is real practical. Trans does not always downshift the way you would like. No guts in the drivetrain I guess. It is not a truck but more like a mini-van.
Cons: rear styling
Advice: shop around, they are discountedRide was smooth and quiet....need a new engine as standard, either the 3.6L or the 3.5L in the Malibu Maxx. Nice features on the CXL model. Lots of safety figured in. The jury is still out on handling in snow and how well the AWD engages, as well as towing ability.
Cons: Lack of power.
Advice: Buy the larger engine. At more than two tons, this vehicle is underpowered at 180 hp.I bought the Rendevous CX Plus for my wife right before a planned road trip from St. Louis to Traverse City, Mich., to Ithaca, NY, and then on to Washington, D.C. before returning to the Show Me State. It was our first SUV so I really didn't know what to expect. I drive an Infiniti G35, so I expected to be dissapointed. But after more than 3,000 miles, despite a decided lack of power, I was definitely satisfied with its overall performance. Great room, comfortable ride, attractive appearance, surprisingly quiet on the road and an overall 25 mpg on the highway. And, oh, that OnStar--what a great feature! Why doesn't every car offer it?
