2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
This car is the fanciest I have ever owned. Plus the costliest. I like the ride and comfort, leather, heated seats and all the bells and whistles but when things go wrong, it's expensive. In the almost three years I've owned this car, I've put a crankshaft sensor, O2 sensor, 6 tires, brakes all around, 2 wheel bearings, and now I need the AC fixed - condensor, two rear "knuckles", and the motor for the AWD. A recall on the wheel bearings was a joke. The mileage perimeter was 65,000. miles and I purchased it with 64,000. so six months later, the recall was toast. Now I hope it lasts til I can pay it down enough to get another car. I was offered $2500 trade and I still owe $9700 on it
Heated leather seats, back up feature, third seat and cargo room. Comfortable to drive.
Any mechanical parts and many dangerous stuff to go wrong. What else that others have posted will go wrong with mine? Do I have to rebuild the whole car? Expensive to maintain and very low resale value. No wonder they quit making them.
