2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased this pre-owned car recently and I'm completely satisfied with the ride, handling and comfort level. The heads-up display and backup sensors are great Buick features. Luckily, I also purchased the GM Major Guard protection plan. The dealer warranty was 60 days bumper to bumper. Within the first 60 days I had 3 wheel hubs (which includes sensors and bearings) replaced by the Buick dealership and a rear differential switch and fluid replaced. You have to be realistic when purchasing a used car (any car) that parts may need replacement and that the previous owner may have neglected problems due to trade-in etc. The 3.4 car can last at least 300,000 miles if maintained.
Ride, Leather seats and comfort level. Heads-up display and backup sensor. Great DVD Sound System, Cappucino two tone paint color and seven passenger seating. The 4 wheel drive and strong GM construction add to a feeling of safety.
GM should address the problem with the wheel hubs/sensors, which is a known problem for this car and several other GM cars and trucks. This hub/bearing problem also happens (according to mechanics) on GMC Jimmy's and some Blazer's. At least the RDV is in good company with cars that exceed 300,000 mi
