Why general motors? Bring back my Buick please! I want to buy a newer one!

2006 Buick Rendezvous

I have had several van in the past. This is the second SUV I have bought. The first had a smaller wheel base. That was a more sporty drive. My Buick is easy to maneuver but it has a more comfortable ride. I like the two doors for the second row sitting. It is much more convenient. I have the power locks so I am able to unlock the rear door as well. I is spacious inside but being a smaller person I do not feel like I am getting lost inside. The driver's seat has great options for position to get the seat exactly how I want it. The gas mileage seems to be decent. It is getting the same (18 miles per gallon in the city) as my Pontiac Bonneville that was several years older and was a midsize. I usually wouldn't pick a white vehicle but because of the body style and the black molding I think it is an attractive vehicle. It is not a priority but the color is a consideration for me. All and all I have been very satisfied with my vehicle and was very disappointed when I heard they stopped making these in 2007. The next model up is nice but it is not something I would buy as it is larger and I am not comfortable with the size.

2006 Buick rendezvous cxl AWD.

2006 Buick Rendezvous CX

I initially loved this vehicle when I bought it 2 years ago, very co.Comfortable, luxury, nice to drive and then I put on less than 2,000 miles on and the transmission went out. When it rains the passenger or drivers floorboards get soaked, depending on which way you first turn. This caused my main power amp to blow out so there's no music, reminder chimes for doors or lights. I replaced the transmission and within a year the rear differential is in need of replacement, causing there to be no AWD. Pulleys are ceasing and everything seems to be in need of repair. It is going to cost more than the vehicle is worth at this point which is very disappointing because initially the body is in great shape and the interior is immaculate for it being a 13 year old vehicle.

Great vehicle very reliable and well made.

2006 Buick Rendezvous 4dr FWD

Our Buick has been a great vehicle. Very reliable without any major problems. The main problem with this vehicle is the traction system has been defective, you hit a small bump in the road and the service traction warning alert goes off and turns the traction off. This has been an ongoing problem since about a year into purchasing it in 2010 and at that time it only had 40,000 miles on it now has 256,000 miles. It has not been a hazard just annoying. Other than normal wear and tear from usage and living through 3 teenagers. It is very roomy in both front and back seats. This has been the best vehicle we have ever purchased.
