Both interior and exterior are fantastic.

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

I love the look of my car. It is a very sleek design and has lots of space. I like how the very back seat folds down to make room for groceries and other big items. I like the captain seats in the back. I love the backup assist and the way my side mirrors adjust themselves when in reverse. Cooling system and electrical system have both went to heck and have had to have a lot of things replaced.

Buick rendezvous honest review

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

Reliable with low mileage, great family vehicle, does not handle well in wet weather conditions without weight in back. Can haul a lot of cargo, motorized functions with sunroof. Windshield wipers have odd placement. Battery is also difficult to reach, can get rough if oil is not changed regularly. Great on miles per gallon. Good for highway travel road trip.

comfort and style and ease of driving

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

my air went out other than that I haven't had problems I like the comfort of it the seats are nice I have a bad back and they don't hurt it driving it is smooth and pretty quiet to the outside noise being a SUV I think the gas mileage isn't too bad. The back end holds all my groceries with space for other things and the back seats are comfortable guests

Nice style, but not so good on the gas at all!!

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

The only thing I don't like about my car is that it has no Bluetooth. The brakes are very sensitive, the shocks are not all that great, the lighting inside the car is very bad , very bad!! The tuneups are very expensive too!! The sensors are so sensitive , and touchy I love the space it's very roomy nice all in all it's a awesome ride.

It's a very spacious car with I enjoy

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

Overall my vehicle has been pretty reliable. I got is second hand from an auto shop and it has served me well since then. Although it's not the most reliable, just more so than my previous vehicles. It has had power steering problems and brake problems, nothing major, just minor leaks that either I or a friend have been able to fix.

Great car with plenty of room.

2005 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

Overall great vehicle. We bought it used and had to change the oil and brakes. We had to order a part for the shifter, but other than that it's been absolutely perfect. Great gas mileage and a very comfortable car. Plenty of room for all three of my kids and two huge car seats.
