2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
The only other GM product I have owned was a Vega; the Rendezvous is much worse. I complained about groaning hydraulics from day one, but CMP Classic said it was normal. Then the AWD quit, just out of warranty. Both GM and the dealer washed their hands of it. Everything has gone wrong with this piece of rubbish, including the driver's lumbar support exploding while I was on the highway. Acceleration (if you can call it that) comes in intermittent bursts; the transmission doesn't change down until you floor it, then it kicks down into first - all show, no go.
Nothing that other (Japanes or South Korean) brands don't do MUCH better
Replace it with a used Yugo, and you will have a far better vehicle.
