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: 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: Ease if turning around in short area without backing up
Cons: Gas mileage is only 25 max but most vehicles like it don't get any betterI don't understand why BUICK quit making this vehicle. This is the 2nd one as I had a 2002 and they were going to quit making them in 2007 so purchased another. It can carry 8 total personnel which is good feature.
Pros: 27MPG w/cruise control engaged on the hwy on my FWD version Rendezvous
Cons: Good sized blind spot when backing up
Advice: Get a Rendezvous as well equipped as you can getI bought my 2006 Rendezvous used almost a year ago now and I have been so very pleased with my purchase. It is quiet, comfortable, roomy, easy to drive, gets great MPG, is very reliable, does everything I want/need in a vehicle, and is fun to drive. I absolutely love this car and would buy another one without any second thoughts at all.
Pros: get 22 miles city driving the comfort is great on the hwy too!!
Cons: a/c needs more power-- roof rack should be stander
Advice: -buy you will not go wrong I like mine alot very happy with ithandles great lots of room the comfort is great
Cons: Heat & air system. When on heat it does not put out much. Very loud.
Advice: Be sure to get the driver info center.Had mine for 7 months. Gas mileage is good on open highway. Having a problem with cranking. First time it would not start had to jump it off. This weekend it did the same thing but after a few minutes it cranked up. Both times it had sit in the driveway for a couple of days. It would crank fine but then when i got ready to leave where i was it would not crank. Buick dealership reprogrammed something the first time & it is now at the dealership but they are saying they can not find anything wrong with it.
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: Optional Third row thast folds down. Seating is comforatble for small adults
Cons: Tire monitor is not sensitive enough. Gives no warning for 25 psi as too low
Advice: Great buy for what you get plus your not driving the common van or camry/accordWe bought a 2005 CXL new and love it! Drives & brakes like a car but with plenty of storage room. Engine acceleration in the 3.4 is a bit slow. Seats are comfortable for long tripsLove the oil life monitoring system and computer info center. Interior is elegant and sound system is nice. My relatives also like it so much that 2 of them each had to go get one as well!
