2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Just after the extended warranty was up the power window quit working. A small plastic piece broke costing $190. Now the other front window has made a loud pop and I am afraid to use it for fear it will not roll up soon. The ac condensor has a pinhole rubbed in it by the frame the quote is $800. If summer would have come a month sooner the vehicle would have still been under warranty. The mechanic that quoted the ac problem said that this is a common problem that he sees a lot.
I love the AWD. This is by far the best vehicle I have ever driven in snow and ice. Four months after purchase we drove home in a blizzard. We saw many vehicles in the ditch. Not once did I feel us slide or thought we were going to end up there.
Obviously something needs done about the ac condensor being close enough to the frame to rub a hole in it. Also I found that the battery post are difficult to reach for testing/maintenance/jumpstarting.
