Buick rendevous ?

we are looking at one. to replace our car that was totaled, they gave us 3457.42. The price of the rendevous is 4,500. there are two different ones,both same price

the first is 02 heated seats,moon roof, its a little more fancy, the other is a 04 not as fancy not as many features, but nice none the less, has third row seating (dont need it, we have two kids and arent having more) dad thinks hell come down on price. we have never had such a large car, but felt the next accident(god forbid) we want alot of car around us, we got very banged up.

so if you have one, how much does it take to fill her up? how does it drive? do you like it, what about maintance costs?
any help is much apperciated

  • My client has one. Horrible gas mileage, and very high insurance rates. Just because it's big doesn't make it safe either. SUVs built between 97 and 05 have warnings about toppling over right on the owners manual. I personally wouldn't buy that type of vehicle that old just for the mileage on it.

  • They're nice cars, but just make sure you have them checked by a mechanic before you purchase one.
