2003 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
My experience with this vehicle has
gone from good to very bad, such that I
wouldn't recommend it. After 1 month
the engine developed a pinging noise
upon acceleration. The dealer has made
every attempt to correct it, but is at
a loss as to what the problem could be.
The GM rep. was consulted who stated
this engine noise is a characteristic
of these engines, even though the
dealer has never had or heard of this
problem before. Its GM's stance to not
fix it or do anything about it, likely
because there so-called engineers
couldn't even engineer there way out of
a paper bag. I would have thought a
company like GM would at least stand
behind there products.
The vehicle was fun to drive, even
though its not as economical as they
suggest, it is very comfortable on long
