2002 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I loved this car BUT have had SO many repair problems. Let's see, wheel bearings, brakes, air conditioning twice and "3" Yes I said three manifold gaskets! Now I just had to have a head gasket replaced and Oh, the gas gauge does not work and I cannot afford to have them pull the gas tank and fix it! Has anyone had any luck with help from Buick?
It is fun to drive and easy to get in and out of.
Buick should help us with the repairs on things they know about that have been problems.
Have one too and have had problems after problems.
A little advice though....the gas gauge problem is probably electrical.
Ours did not work for years and when exploring another problem, mechanic found some wires that were frayed and disconnected in the electrical system.
Lo and behold, this fixed the gas gauge problem!
Hard to get to wires though.
Ours went through months of overheating suddenly and to the extreme. Sometimes fine, sometimes shoots to H within seconds.
Replaced thermostat and tried other things. Mechanic told us we should replace head gasket.
Put in a can of radiator gunk sealer instead for $10 and she runs perfect now!
Don't give up yet!
