2002 Buick Rendezvous CX 3.4 from North America
Very reliable, comfortable ride, and gets good mpg
I bought my Buick Rendezvous in 2001, and have had very good service. So far for 98,000 miles, it has cost me $123.99 in repairs other than routine maintenance.
Original tires lasted 58,000 miles, and original brake pads 42,000 miles.
Brake rotors lasted 74,000 miles.
I had a bushing replaced when it was 5 years old.. I had hit a huge pot hole. And I just replaced the water pump, which I did myself in about 4 hours.. very easy to replace.
This has been a great vehicle.
I have had very good experience with my Buick, and I would recommend Buick to anyone. 3.4 V6, 185HP, I get between 25 and 28 MPG on the road, and 19 to 23 in town. That's better than a coworker's CRV 4cyl, and has much more room inside and rides much quieter and smoother.
The CRV boasts 72 cu ft of cargo space... my Buick has 108 cu ft of cargo space, and gets better mpg and has a powerful V6.
Quality items like stainless steel exhaust and galvanized metal body that still looks like new.
The brakes are so easy to replace because of the alloy bolts that have no rust; makes it so easy to maintain.
No signs of wear on the seats.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
