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.

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.

High Rating — I like the inside comfort both front and back, big outside mirrors, and appearance. Also I like third row seating, it is very good for big family. If you choose not to use the 3rd row seats, then you can put them down and have a large trunk space.

Avoid This Car! Fair Warning — Forums have complained about multiple, expensive things going wrong with this car, I have expreienced almost all of them. 117k miles and this car is ready for the junk yard. Will cost more to get past inspection than will get for trade-in.

Ok Stuff Hauler. — Never warmed to this car, had no personality. Dealer service was not the best. Uncomfortable for long drives. Replaced it with a MINI Cooper, which was much more comfortable.

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

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.
