Pros: XM Radio
Advice: Buy it is a great car for a familyTest droved it, loved it.
Pros: the seven seats
Cons: it breaks down more then it's running.
Advice: Run from it, so not worth the nightmare.I test drove this car and fell in love with it. So we decided to buy it. It did have everything we were looking for, room, comfort and the seven seater. I had the car a week and it had to go in for the air. Drove it another 2 months, had to go back in for no heat(blown head gasket). Now it needs to go back in for the same problem(no heat). I've only owed the car 4 months. Deeply regret buying the over priced unreliable junk. Please buy the extended waranty on this if you deside to buy. Like I said I've owed it for 4 months and I'm already getting a return on what I paid for the waranty( and it only has 32,000 miles on it).Good luck.
Pros: Station Wagon handling with All-wheel drive
Cons: Liked the Freestyle body and interior better.
Advice: One of GM's best kept secrets.Only 600 miles so far. Excellent ride and handling. Mileage running about 22mpg. Better mpg on highway. Traction great on rain slicked roads. Looking forward to snow.
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.
Pros: 20 to 22 miles per gallon what other SUV this size gets this
Cons: Tan seats too light, cheap hup caps get striped and not and have come off easily not quality.
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.
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.
Cons: THE PROBLEMS THAT A NEW CAR SHOULD NOT HAVE
Advice: DON'TLOVE IT AT FIRST. A MONTH BEFORE INITIAL WARANTY EXPIRED AIR CONDITIONER WENT OUT, GOOD THING FOR EXTENDED WARRANTY HAD TO FIX HEATER, REPLACE ENTIRE COMPUTER UNIT, KEY CHAMBER MIS ALIGNED COULD NOT START CAR, PASSENGER SEAT BELT WOULD NOT LOCK AND WINDOW PROBLEMS.
