Good Stylish, Comfortable, Sturdy, Reliable Vehicle. — I really love my 2994 Buick Rendezvous. It has 217000 miles and still going strong. I have had to have the Transmission done at 165000, but with what I have put it through, that is not bad. Only problem seems to be with antilock brake system, and wheel bearings, they designed it with a wire going to the wheel bearing sensor that is pulled every time the wheel is turned. It evenually breaks and then the lights are always on saying traction control problem. I found many on the web having same problem. Gas mileage isn't bad for SUV, about 21 mpg average. Style is great, but center console is both a blessing and curse, there is little room between it and seats and I call it the black hole, because if you drop something in there, you may never see it again. Hard to clean that area too. Very reliable car, I have used it for work, as family car, and on many trips. It is showing some wear, the front power windows are now broken, but do plan on getting them fixed. Mine is a TPC car, used by golf tournement at Sawgrass. Is a very luxureous car, love the radio controls on the stearing wheel. This car has spoiled me, I can't imagine driving anything else. Its paid off and I plan on keeping it. It may need more repairs in the future, still has original everything, only replaced battery, tires and belt, and rebuilt transmision.

Pros

Very spacious Comfortable. Good mileage for a V6.

Cons

Parts can be pricey when stepping out of the routine maintenance category. Aesthetics could have been better. Rear door is a bit heavy to lift and close.

I'll Give It 7 Out Of 10. — Very good acceleration, reliable and efficient braking. Handles pretty well for it's size. Build quality is sub par. There are too many noises associated with transmission and braking. One wheel bearing had to be changed. The front view is pretty nice but the rear and side profiles are not flattering, then again, this was built on the Pontiac Aztec platform. Mileage is quite good for the engine size and maintenance has been economical so far. As a midsize SUV, it is not that much fun, unless it snows ;)

Hate The Noise From Traction Control — Driving is really nice but can`t hear anything over the noise of the traction control vehicle has new tires could there be something else wrong.

Old-people look

A Good Travelling Vehicle — Good all around performance. Some repairs have been needed, but it was pre-owned and in an accident. Stinks of old-people appeal. Decent mileage, doesn't burn tires or oil. Not a fun drive, but definitely an easy one. Would buy again.
