Re: What's so bad about the Rendezvous? (DCS)
There's nothing wrong with the Rendezvous, per se, except that once you price the vehicle out with options, you're basically paying the same amount as either an Acura MDX or a Lexus RX300, both of which drive much better than the Buick and have more horsepower, not to mention have better resale and predicted reliability.
Personally, I think the Rendezvous is ugly. GM was too cheap to re-engineer the radiator to sit lower in the vehicle, which is why the front end has that blocky look to it. Even though the MDX is essentially an Oddessey underneath, Honda moved the radiator to give the MDX a sleeker look in the front.
