Buick Used Cars- A Quick Look At The Rendezvous

Buick used cars like the Rendezvous was a new entry into the SUV crossover market back in 2002. To be honest with you, this vehicle looks like every other SUV crossover from GMs other brands. This is why General Motors really screwed up and got itself into so much financial trouble. It was basically developing the same vehicles, in the same market segment, with the same look and design, but with a different brand stamp on the hood of the vehicle. Im mean really, is there any differences when you look at the Pontiac Aztek compared to the Buick Rendezvous. So for all intensive purposes, I will not write about the Aztek because it shares a lot of the same features and platforms as the Rendezvous does-lol.

Buick Rendezvous used cars:

Rendezvous’ base model provides seating for five people; it also has an option to fit as many as seven people, which comes standard with its top model, but would be an extra in its base model. It also has an option for captains chairs as well. I found the interior to be very blah and its exterior looks as if it was a smaller version of a station wagon but beefed up on steroids; it has a real weird look to it.

The Buick Rendezvous has several different engines in its various model types. The base model had a V6, 3.4-litre engine, with 185 horsepower. Later models for its best version got an upgrade to a V6, 3.6-litre, 245 horsepower engine. All base model Rendezvous came with two-wheel drive, its top model came standard with an allwheel drive transmission.

I only found one statistic on the Rendezvous fuel economy. It basically gives and average for all models in which it ranges from 12.3-Litres to 13.7-litres, per 100km, for city driving and 7.8-litres to 9.3-litres, per 100km, for highway driving.

Lets take a look at some of the pros and cons when looking to buy a Buick Rendezvous as used vehicle.

1- There are issues with the transmission
2- There are problems with the air condition leaking.
3- There are problems with the braking sensors
4- It received a 3 star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety organization for a crash test done to it, for passenger and driver protection.

This is a vehicle I recommend staying away from; there are just too many issues with it.

With the Canadian dollar being so high, American Buick Rendezvous used cars are much cheaper than ones sold in Canada.

Best 2007 Cars

Consumer Reports “Best Used Vehicles for Under $ 20,000” is a good place to start to look for such reliable 2007 cars. Another is Edmunds “2010 Used Car Best Bets.” Of course, your individual wants and needs – and budgetary considerations – come into play as well. That said, check out these top picks for Best Used 2007 Cars:

Honda Fit – Looking for a subcompact with the reliability of a Honda? How about the Honda Fit? Fun to drive, offering spacious rear seats and numerous innovative storage options, Fit also achieves excellent fuel economy – not a minor consideration with uncertain fuel costs. Consumer Guide comments: “Given the tiny footprint it places upon the road, Fit is likely the most space-efficient vehicle on sale in the United States. There are less expensive entry-level rivals, and $ 1000-$ 2000 more gets you into the range of more substantial-feeling cars, including Honda’s own Civic, the Mazda 3, and the Hyundai Elantra. But you’ll be hard pressed to match the Fit’s blend of thrift, clever packaging, standard safety features, spry road manners, and Honda pedigree. That makes it a Recommended pick.”

Buick LaCrosse – Though reviewers say it can’t match the Honda Accord for value, the 2007 Buick LaCrosse midsize sedan does offer consumers some laudable attributes. Edmunds says, “Overall, the 2007 Buick LaCrosse is a pretty decent car. It’s fairly quick with the top-line V6, and it delivers a smooth, quiet ride.” This car is a far different cry from the all-new 2010 model, but when it comes to reliability and value for the money in the used-car market, Consumer Reports lists the 2007 Buick LaCrosse in the $ 12,000-$ 14,000 price range.

Hyundai Elantra – Editors at Edmunds were so impressed with their long-term Hyundai Elantra that they also rewarded it with first place in the compact sedan category for their “2010 Used Car Best Bets” for model years 2003-2008. Adding to Elantra’s appeal is the fact that the compact sedan was redesigned for model year 2007. Edmunds praises Elantra’s “peppy performance and a smooth ride,” its “solid build quality, reliability and operating economy.” Note that the Consumer Reports list shows 2007 Hyundai Elantra’s in the $ 10,000-$ 12,000 price range.

Nissan Maxima – In the hotly-contested midsize sedan segment, Nissan Maxima is an interesting value proposition. On the one hand, it’s a good choice for a family sedan. It’s capable and confident. But it’s certainly not a Honda Accord in terms of overall value. Neither is it a performer like a Cadillac CTS premium sport sedan. No, it’s somewhere in the middle. Still, Edmunds says: “Although the 2007 Nissan Maxima offers a likeable combination of performance, luxury and interior room, there are now many good sedans in this price range.”

Subaru Impreza – Auto reviewers note that all models of the 2007 Subaru Impreza sedan lead the class in terms of standard all-wheel drive and safety features. High safety ratings are the icing on the cake. In its top 10 list of 2007 quickest cars under $ 20,000, Car and Driver notes of 10th-place Subaru Impreza: “Few economy cars on the planet are as visceral, as hard-wired to the driver’s inputs. But if this is an honest, no-frills piece of engaging engineering, it is also showing its age.”

Other best used 2007 cars worth a look include the Honda Accord and Civic, Hyundai Azera and Sonata, Lincoln Town Car, Mazda 3, Nissan Altima, Pontiac Vibe, and Volkswagen Rabbit.

What Are NASCAR Cars?

Stock car racing was something that was out of owners’ imagine of customized stock (meaning: ‘off the sales lot’) cars to show off their vehicles, craftsmanship and driving expertise. It came from their wish to escape the law enforcement agencies pursuing them when they were running moonshine or put another way, bootlegging.

 

For the period of Prohibition, a lot of moonshine whiskey was being made in remote regions of the Appalachians and in particular the Allegheny Mountains, from where it was taken by private carriers in their own stock cars often to the southern states. Many of these drivers souped up their cars in order to have more chance of escape.

 

When Prohibition was revoked in 1933, this bootlegging continued in order to avoid paying duty, but it gradually died out. However, the fire had already been lit and the drivers of these cars liked to race them in their spare time for pleasure and reward, especially in the southern states and particularly in North Carolina, where most of the stock car teams are still to be found.

 

NASCAR was established by Bill French in 1947 when he created the first set of uniform rules and a championship scoring system so that an overall winner of all the season’s races could be worked out.

 

However, the conditions in the early days were pretty crude. The cars were usually second-hand and worn and the track was just dirt and dust. Under these circumstances the cars quickly fell apart, so NASCAR allowed competing cars to be customized or strengthened. Safety aspects for the drivers were also introduced. Nowadays, the NASCAR instruction manual clearly defines all the alterations that are allowed on contending cars.

 

These days it is a mistake to call NASCAR cars ‘stock cars’; they are anything other than stock cars. NASCAR cars are hand made. The frames are poles apart from stock cars in that they are constructed from tubes for strength; the tin is sheet steel and the engine blocks begin as just that – a bare block. What the mechanics do with it after that is a closely guarded secret.

 

The safety of the driver is also taken very seriously. The driver is shielded from injury by a heavy roll cage. Strong round and square tubes make up the car’s framework, while thinner tubing is used at the front and back ends to absorb the impact of crashes by crushing slowly. These are called clips and the front clip will also allow the engine to fall away under the car, rather than be pushed straight back into the driver.

 

The bodies of NASCAR cars are not easy to make, often taking ten days to finish. However, NASCAR rules cover the general body shape and they provide thirty templates to make constructing a NASCAR car a little simpler.

 

But it does not stop there. There are different regulations and templates for different sorts of races on different tracks, because the cars that race on superspeedways are not the same as those used for short tracks or endurance races.

Although the Spain team defeated the Dutch team at the score of 2-1, their reputation are still on the rise. When mentioned, the color of the Netherlands team has been well known as “the whirlwind of orange”. Then, there are lots of products covered with orange. Below is the collection of super cars that are in comparison with the Dutch football players as follows:

 

The half-back Demy de Zeeuw (Ajax) is highly appreaciated for his good and reliable observation, which takes after a Porsche 997 Carrera 4S Cabriolet, an excellent sport car

 

The wing half-back Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich) is compared to a two-seat sport car named Donkervoort D8 270 RS which is produced by a Dutch auto manufacturer

 

Half-back Ibrahim Afellay (PSV Eindhoven) had the ability to observe smartly and is compared to Ariel Atom

 

The defender Andre Ooijer (PSV Eindhoven) may takes after a US car named Dodge Charger RT Daytona in terms of speeding up

 

The super car Saleen S7 can run very fast, but it seems very hard to drive this model

 

Khalid Boulahrouz (Stuttgart) is a talented defender and is well known after Euro 2004. Meanwhile, the car Dodge Viper SRT-10 Roadster also features remarkable power and special functions

 

Joris Mathijsen (Hamburg) is a good defender but sometimes appears vague. This edition named Opel Speedster is also an excellent model but not really impressive

 

The half-back Nigel de Jong (Manchester City) can speed up very well and have the ability to observe well, which may resembles a Wiesmann Roadster
