2002 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I absolutely loved this car - for the first 51,000 miles. Then the left front wheel hub bearing failed. At 59,000 miles, the upper and lower intake gaskets. 64,000 miles the body control module failed. This causes your lights to begin randomly flashing, while your horn begins honking all by themselves. Then the A/C condensor, right wheel hub bearing, transmission, ignition key switch and security module, and now the blower motor speed resistor. Previous GM Lumina had same reliability, even though I maintain my cars. Thought Buick would be better.
Lots of room for a saleman, his literature, and customers. Lots of head room and leg room even in the back seat.
GM needs to change philosphy. Right now, they look at quality as, "how cheap can we make this part so that it lasts for the warranty period". When you pay $24K-30K for a car, you want it to last as long as a Honda without having to take out a second mortgage for the repair bills.
