2006 Buick Rendezvous CX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Have had this car for 3 and half years now. Problems, AWD failed in the winter (short in the wiring) failed rear hatch touchpad, leaking transfer case and unreliable fuel gauge. Had to replace table bushings, tie rods, knuckle bushings and both front and rear brakes before reaching 40k. Thank God for the 48 month warranty. I am 54 and do not drive hard or abuse my vehicles. I own a 03 buick century that the wife drives and only had to change the front brakes once in 6 years. Rendezvous quality control stinks and I now understand why they do not make them anymore. When my lease expires in May, it is gone!!
Love the AWD in our Quebec winters, ride quality is good, lots of room and is pretty comfortable.
Complete overhaul of drivetrain quality. Everyone I know in my area that owns a Rendezvous have had similar problems along with premature wheelbearing failure.
