Not what we expected

2004 Buick Rendezvous CX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


When originally shopping for our family SUV we never expected we'd end up with a Buick Rendezvous. However, after seeing so many SUVs with the boring dark gray interior we finally looked at one and fell in love the with spacious interior, comfortable captain seats and smooth ride. A year into ownership we started experiencing issues. Both wheel bearings went under 60,000 miles costing $400 each. Break pads and rotors had to be changed every 6-9 months because they kept warping (another pricey repair). The handle on the rear hatch door broke as well, making it harder for my wife to close. The nail in the coffin was the transmission starting to slip at just 71,000 miles!

Best Features

Spacious driver room (I'm a tall guy) 3rd row seating Light towing ability

Worst Features

Too many mechanical problems for a car under 75,000 miles. GM needs to build a better product and back what they build
