Rendezvous Has Mechanical Defects
By Kathlyn Garcee on


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


I loved the vehicle, and still do with the exception of major problems occurring at 51,000 miles. Needed intake manifold gasket replaced as well as new head gaskets. $1,680. Then 2 days later found a crack in the A/C condenser. Condenser needed to be replaced. GM finally paid the cost of the condenser ($400+/-) and we paid the labor ($423). Even though other Rendezvous' were having manifold gasket and head gasket problems they refused to help us with the repair costs. 51,000 miles is to early to have these types of problems. I do like the interior design and feel when driving this vehicle. Due to the mechanical defects, I would not recommend anyone purchase this vehicle.

Best Features

Interior design, comfortable seats, good leg room.

Worst Features

GM needs to work out the defective gaskets and the brackets that hold the condenser. Both apparently were either defective on ineffective therefore causing failures.
