montreid:Check these numbers out, the true cost to own on a 03 Buick RDV thru out the life of the SUV = $44460. Links is below: http://www.edmunds.com/new/2003/buick/rendezvous/cxlawd4drsuv34l6cyl4a/tco.html?id=lin0648
The true cost to own on a 03 MDX base thru out the life of the SUV = $48441. Links is below:
We had this discussion about comparing the MDX base to the RDV already: But I will stick to my option that the RDV has options that the MDX dont have and the MDX base also has options that the RDV dont have.
Therefore, if your plan to keep both SUV for 4 or 5 years, the difference in true cost to own is less than $4000 dollars.
By the way, thanks for the links to the RDV engine update. I truly hope that Buick will offer this upgraded engine with a sports package, because the current suspension and tires will not handle additional power.
As to the estimated $5000 in price change, I reference that from the Volvo's price difference in the 2 different engines in the XC90. It will be somewhere in that ballpark for the RDV as well. In that case the true cost to own for a RDV will actually be higher than the MDX.
Why would anyone want to remove their second roll seats when they can just fold it down?
The RDV's MPG rating is 18 city and 24 highway. Refer to the following reference.http://www.edmunds.com/new/2003/Buick/rendezvous/cxlawd4drsuv34l6cyl4a/specs.html?id=lin0018
