2002 Buick Rendezvous FWD 3.4 from North America
Best vehicle I've owned in 35 years
One repair in 8 years that was done at the dealer while the car was inspected. Most reliable vehicle I've had in 35 years.
This is a 4,000lbs very smooth quiet riding vehicle that gets a easy 26mpg on the highway.. I've gotten up to 28mpg in a vehicle that has 110 cubic ft of cargo space that has come in handy many times moving kids in collage.
The original brakes lasted 42000 miles.
The original tires lasted 58000 miles.
The front rotors lasted 75000 miles, and the rears are still on the car at 90000 miles.
This is in Pennsylvania. This is not normal.
I get 23 mpg going to work while a coworker who drives the same route in a Honda CRV 4cyl only is getting 21 mpg.
The brakes are all alloy.. no rust... changing the pads is very easy the bolts are no rust alloy... no killing yourself to get them lose.
The stainless steel exhaust isn't thinking about rusting, while the coworker who has the same year CRV came driving up the other day dragging his rusted out exhaust.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is refreshing to read a POSITIVE review! I am sure that there are a lot more satisfied vehicle owners out there, but it is human nature to want to vent when one experiences problems. A site such as this one gives the dissatisfied vehicle owner an opportunity to do just that - vent.
In any case, thank you for providing us readers with a positive and informative review. It is good to know that not everything is negative in the world of automobiles.
