Rendezvous Cxl Awd — Its A Nice Luxury SUV but has several downfalls in build quality. It gets horrible gas mileage and performance is below par could have more power and better acceleration. Has Oodles of space for passengers in first and second row but third row is crammed. Right now the engine in it is blown or there is some main seal problem. I would not purchase another one. Love the Onstar

Pros

Dependaable, Very good MPG for its size, very usable third row seats  and huge cargo space when third row seats are folded down, very good handling of snowy roads.

Cons

Would like that second row seats were offered as captain seats,
had to change the wheel hub assembly to replace the bad speed sensor.

4.5 Star Out Of 5 Star Vehicle — I have basically only the best words for this car except one thing. I wish it came with captain seats in the middle row so that the third row could be accessed without the need to fold down the second row seat.

Great Comfort For Long Trips And Great For Second Car — GREAT FOR FAMILY TRIPS!! AND GREAT QUALITY FOR THE PRICE. FEW HAIL DINGS top and hood This is a fantastic family car it is in great condition has LOW MILES as you can see there is no body damage. Leather tan seats are perfect and has a few scratches on the interior on the driver side. Car is sold as is with no returns. Buyer is responsible for picking up the car from the owner or arranging for pickup and delivery.

Ok — a good car that I got for a bargain through work. Overall good car, but has some quarks that stuill need to be worked out. I love the AWD, but wished the car had a bigger engine to move it better

Pros

Good steering

Cons

Not as much power as some vehicles

25

Quality Car — The steering is a little bit loose, but once you get used to it you don't notice it. For an SUV it gets amazingly good gas milage, and handles really well on sharp turns. Overall, i personally would not recommend this to a permit driver, because of the size of the car.

Pros

7 seater, lots of room, seats all fold flat, AWD

Cons

a little sluggish, only get around 20 MPG,

25

Finlly Time To Trade In The Fast Cars — had to go with the family compact SUV, will very drive a mini van, and you can quote me on that. (unless it is given to me, but I would probably still sell it, and get something else.) should have skipped the AWD, that was the Michigan driver in me, but there is rarely a need for it in TN, and it drinks more gas than a two wheel drive

A smooth ride (when it would run)

Total Lemon! — Had more trouble trying to keep this NEW car out of the shop than I had trying to learn to spell Rendezvous after buying it. Things went wrong with this that should've NEVER gone wrong with a car that was only a few years old. Had it from 2002-2006, and that was too long.

Wish I Could Purchase A 2013 — I felt safe driving my children around in this car for over 8 years now. This car is also great for long trips. I Hope that you will enjoy it as much as I have. Good luck with your car shopping.
