2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
We bought this vehicle used with 26K miles on it in Nov. of '05, and liked it quite a bit originally. Unfortunately, the longer we have had it, the more cheaply made it seems. Not a lot of problems mechanically with this car through the 3 years I have owned it, but little stuff: windows always squeal, leather strap to close hatch broke within a couple months of owning, rear wiper has never worked correctly. Tires lose pressure. Now I feel the tranny is slipping, and warranty expires in 3 days. Was told at the dealership they can't find anything wrong, and I can't trade this in, because I can't afford the negative equity
Third row seat (though it is really only large enough for children). Stereo is okay, but rear speakers have never worked.
Buick stopped making the Rendezvous- nuff said. Though the fact that loyal customers got hosed with all the negative equity on a vehicle that should have lasted at least past the 75K warranty, does not reflect well on GM. . .
