Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Favorites would be driver information center and and steering wheel mounted radio controls
Cons: It's a little hard for a short person to get in due to height from groundI usually avg 25 -27 mpg on highway. Great car and is so comfortable., has good AC unit,handles well and I'd buy a new one if they still made it.
Pros: Riding Comfort
Cons: Mechanical failuresWe traded our 2005 Rendezvous with 40,000 miles on a 2010 Honda CRV. The mechanical record on this car was terrible Spent over 3,000 dollars in repairs.
Comfort and class
Pros: overall design
Cons: marginal powerComfortable,handsome and practical vehicle. Absolutely no problems. My only desire would be for a bit more power.
Pros: Comfort, dependability and low cost of operation
Cons: The only negative is the rear hatchback is heavy to open and close.A great vehicle. This car has been great to me and my family. I've had the car for 5 years and 72K miles. It has needed only basic maintenance. I usually get a new car every 3-4 years, but I hate to give this up and I haven't found anything out there that is comparable. The gas mileage has been good, performance, etc.
Pros: Comfortable ride
Cons: Gas mileage and vilibility to rear
Advice: See review aboveComfortable car on the road. Power not what I would have expected from the engine. Mileage 17/21 on awd model. Well short of rating which was a major deciding factor on purchase. Visibility to rear is poor to the point of being dangerous if angel parked. Storage behind third seat is non-existant because of shape of the hatch. If you take more than 4 people, it better be just for a ride. If you have 4 people in the car there is no place to hang clothes.
Pros: Interior Room
Cons: Gas Mileage
Advice: Get the larger engineBeing on the larger size, I really was impressed with the interior comfort. The Ultra model has all of the bells and whistles included and comes with the largerer engine which is a must. The ride is smooth, but could be quieter. The gas mileage is nowhere near the published figures, and due to the high back seats in the front and rear, visibility can be a problem.
Cons: seat kept moving up
Advice: don' t wait go buy itI JUST LIVED THRU A T-BONE CRASH ON MY LEFT SIDE. THE OTHER DRIVER WAS GOING OVER 45MPH IN A TRUCK.. ALL EMERGENCY HELPERS AND FIREMEN ATTENDING THE CRASH SITE SAID I SHOULD BE DEAD.. WHEN THE INSURACE SETTLES I WILL BUY ANOTHER RENDEZVOUS... I KNOW GOD WAS ON MY SIDE TOO.
