2004 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
I had hoped to keep this car for a long time but it's slowly falling apart. Part of it is the salt in our region. The rotors rust and wear out the brakes/rotors prematurely. The bearing hubs have been replaced. Control arm bushings don't last and the AWD actuator had to be replaced.The racheting device on the seatbelts caused the belts to tear and need to be replaced. It's constantly being repaired and I no longer trust it except for trips around town. The quality of the suspension/drive train parts is not good. It does have a nice ride and nice stereo and room to take my 90 lb German Shepherd but I think I may look at a Nissan, Toyota or Honda to replace it. American cars= no good.
Ride, quietness, stereo and room
Better plastic trim. Better control arm bushings. Bigger rotors and larger calipers. Better bearing hubs. Sturdier AWD system
