2002 Buick Rendezvous CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I've owned my 2002 Rendezvous since the summer of 2001. I absolutely loved my Rendezvous up until last year. Once I reached about 50K, it's been problem after problem. The A/C condenser went, engine antifreeze gasket leaks, and we had to replace the transmission and the car's computer. In addition, there were other costly repairs, like excessive tire wearing (never in an accident). We've had to get two wheel alignments and four new tires twice in the past 18 months. Also had the AWD light come on, and of course that was broken. Another major hassle is a blockage in the igintion. Insert the key, and it hits an obstruction which is a metal piece which is suppose to retract, but doesn't.

Best Features

Super comfortable seating and a nice ride. Heated leather seats, back-up park assist, overall styling of exterior and interior.

Worst Features

Lift gate super heavy to raise, at least mine is. Better mechanics! Too many costly problems! Buick should have done recalls for many known problems.
