The tailgate is extremely heavy and very difficult to close.

The vehicle is getting old, having led a rough life here in the country where I live in a remote area accessible only by rutty dirt road. It has held up ok but the speedometer no longer works so I never know how fast I am going, but that is specific to this particular car. In general, my one main complaint about this model is that the tailgate is extremely heavy and very difficult for me to close. If the car is at a certain angle I cannot reach it to close it. Otherwise it has been a relatively reliable vehicle for the 11 years I have owned it.

Buick rendezvous reliable and hauling capabilities.

I bought the Buick rendezvous used I was worried about reliably but other than the normal wear and tear for a vehicle that age it's been a good choice. I like that I can fold the seats down for more storage when I need it. Its quick and easy to do and reassemble. It has the hooks that made securing my grandsons car seat easier and more secure. It.

The good and bad of the Buick.

It has had differential problems since I have had it and the Chevy dealer would not fix it under warranty. It has also had a problem with connectors for the all wheel drive / anti-lock brake system. The car is comfortable and drives nicely. There is plenty of room and the looks are pretty good.
