2003 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Mechanically the worst car I ever owned. The only saving grace was that I purchased the 100K mile warranty. Otherwise it would have cost me thousands in repairs after 60K mile warranty expired. Front wheel bearings (known issue), intake manifold (known issue), excessive inside tire wear (alignments did not help), heater blower (3 times), sheared bolts and head replacements.
I got rid of it.
Forget the bells and whistles and build a mechanically sound, reliable vehicle.
