  • my 2005 model buick rendezvous is about to experience a transmission rebuild --- the tranbsmission has been replaced twice. befor it even reached 80,000 miles. GM should be ashamed for jerking us ...

    We're really glad the Department of Homeland Security isn't listening in on our household conversations. They'd wonder how we can spend an entire morning and half the afternoon going back and forth over the merits and demerits of a test vehicle. Case in point: The 2005 Buick Rendezvous Ultra, a richly appointed, minivan-based crossover utility vehicle that generated more discussi...

  • A crossover SUV that takes favorite features from a wide range of vehicles (cars, minivans, SUVs), the 2005 Buick Rendezvous offers the versatility of two or three rows of seats and lots of storage room without the feel of driving a big SUV.
    The 2005 Rendezvous comes in three trims -- base CX, CXL, and Ultra. New for 2005, the Ultra is now available in front-wheel drive, meaning all trims come with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The CX and CXL are powered by a 3.4-liter, 185-hp V6, while the Ultra features a 3.6-liter, 245-hp V6. In the 2005 Rendezvous, this engine is now an option for the CXL. Other additions this year include new standard 17-inch tires, wood trim in the CXL, an optional sunroof for the CX, and a passenger sensing airbag deploying system in the front seat. ABS brakes, OnStar, front side airbags are standard on all but the 2WD CX.

    The 2005 Rendezvous has two rows of seats, but the CXL and above models can add an optional third row, which also folds when you need more trunk space. This third row, though, is very cramped and only suitable for small children or pets. The second row bench in all models slides back and forth to adjust for legroom or extra cargo room. As you move up the line, you get a lot of standard luxury items and safety features such as parking assist and the heads-up display.
    While it's not particularly speedy, the 2005 Rendezvous is fun to drive and handles easily, more like a car than an SUV. It has unique looks that appeal to most owners, who also love the long list of standard features. Large mirrors offer good visibility. Downsides include lousy gas mileage, the cramped third row, and a rear tailgate that's hard to pull down.

Vehicle: 2005 Buick Rendezvous What a piece of garbage - bought with 50,000 miles, from original owner and he should be hung!!! this car has an issue that has required it to be in the shop on and off for the last 2 one can find the problem, I have just about replaced everything and the issue still will stall for no reason what so ever. Buick should be ashamed of themselves for selling this beast. I hate it.
