Review

I loved my Rendezvous! However, it was a mechanical nightmare! The major parts of the air conditioning system had to be replaced...the transmission went at 50,000 miles...the chrome factory rims began to pit and lose air, destroying my brand new tires. The radio faded in and out. Power window on drivers side went. Lastly the plastic roof console hinge broke off and I had to rig it back up so that it didn't hang and obstruct my view. I had to replace the rims and tires. V


Favorite Features

Heads up display. Parking assist. 3rd row seats.


Suggested Improvements

Upgraded to a Rainier.

Review

Drove my Rendezvous with about 80k on a 4 1/2 hour journey into Northern Michigan--an hour away from our destination the "Hot Coolant" light came on. Blew a head gasket--now What? Have had a wheel bearing replaced under recall, rear hatch replaced under recall, now a $1500 head gasket, have had problems with a/c, hard to find tires. Great fun to drive and comfortable, but would I buy another...um....Not a chance!

Review

Wonderful driving experience, only. Quality is questionable when purchasing a first year car. A lot of bugs to work out, e.g. window relay switches bad, sensors, bad, tracks on bucket seats, bad, brakes, very bad, engine bad, transmission recalled, problems with airconditioning unit within first two years of ownership. Car drives very well, just poor quality parts.


Favorite Features

Nice and roomy. Drives well.


Suggested Improvements

5 year warranty as opposed to three year.

Review

I bought 2002 with less than 28000 miles on it. One year later with 38000 I have had to replace/repair to the tune of over $3500. The gas tank sensor, driver's power window motor, cooling system gaskets, ignition module, a/c sensor module and rear chassis springs and finally the main computer (this is the only repair covered by Buick). I am a 58 yr old woman and the SUV was serviced regularly at the Buick garage, My Buick dealer has been great thru all of this.Supplying me with a loaner etc. Buick however, did nothing! I am trading this piece of junk in on anything that is not a Buick.
