2003 Buick Rendezvous SUV CX AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased used at 33k. Head gasket replaced at 40K at dealer expense. Since then a number of catastrophic failures - 3 different rocker arms and one cylinder head have been replaced. Afraid to drive other than locally. GM needs to stand behing their cars that have these sorts of problems


Best Features

Sound system, heads up display, parking sensors, memory seats


Worst Features

Engine is underpowered

Review

I really don't get all of you complaining about the speed of the vehicle. I can always enter onto any freeway going atleast 65-70 mph. My truck pratically drives it self. My truck is way fast. Yes, side mirrors do cause a blind spot. You just have to double check (all the time) & it might be only a problem for short people. Thank you all & have a great safe life!!

Review

My husband and I bought this vehicle in January 07, by July 07, we've already had some serious problems. First was the Security light kept coming on, was told it was a battery problem but to have the diagnostics on the vehicle checked out was costly just to have to change the battery. Next was the window, went down wouldn't go back up cost me$430 to get the regulator replaced. I've read a lot on the Rendezvous and the windows are a hugh problem and very costly. Also, not nearly enough room in the driver's seat and the seatbelts are not roomy enough and the radio keeps changing stations. We have been very disappointed so far and hope this SUV doesn't end up costing us a fortune.


Best Features

Nice ride, roomy back seat, love the look of it outside.


Worst Features

You should do a recall on the window regulators and fix some of the other problems I listed above.

Review

Reliable, decent fuel economy, 3rd row seat helps when hauling kids, AWD for the winter and a comfortable ride. This has been a great addition to the family.
