"I am the second owner bought from a dr through a dealership. Low mileage and have owned for 8 of the 10 years. This SUV has been one of the best vehicles I have ever had (excluding my Mercedes) and has never given me any trouble other than normal maintenance. However, it is approaching 11 years old and is starting with the typical little things warranting replacing or changing etc. I have put more than enough money in this vehicle in my opinion so I want to trade back to a Mercedes. This has been an awesome vehicle for me and what I needed at the time as I drove across country, around the country, and back. A great SUV! No longer make this model but I'm sure the Encore and Enclave live up to the standard my Rendevouz did."
Pros: "Very comfortable low cost ride in a used vehicle."
Cons: "Be prepared for unexpected costly repairs"

"With All Wheel Drive (Versatrak) this vehicle provides excellent traction in wintry driving conditions. The seating is very comfortable for tall drivers with great seat adjustments not to mention the heated seats that are so comfy on a cold day. 3.4 V-6 is a so so performer....not great on acceleration but it is wonderful for cruising on long trips. City: 18 mpg Hwy: 22 mpg
The 3.4 V6 head and intake gaskets have been troublesome and were replaced prematurely (around 70,000). Braking is just average in performance and the Anti-lock system can be problematic. Nice riding handsome car for $4,000 but expect costly repairs.Still cheaper than new car payments. Cargo area is great and can handle a full sofa"
Cons: "Does not speed up quickly when mergin onto highway"

"I bought this car when it was 3 years old, I now have had it for 6 years. It's roomy and I have only had a few instances where it has needed repairs. One where the gas gauge broke. It cost me 200 to fix. I believe at the amount of miles I have on it it probably could use a tune up but it's still running strong. I would recommend this car for anyone who wants a reliable older model car. It's not the most comfortable. I mean I have sat in better but it's not the worst either."
