2006 Buick Rendezvous CX 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


We loved our Buick at first. Within 3 days of purchase our windshield wipers stopped working in a snow storm because the motor on wiper blew? We had to get a new transmission 3 years into the car and was asked to pay $6,000. The warranty had expired. I never ever had to pay for a new transmission in a 3+year car.

Best Features

Roomy interior; heated seats; going through a home renovation we appreciated being able to fit sheet rock and plywood sheets; Large outside mirrors

Worst Features

Nasty blind spots; Every time we went to inspection, there was a $700+ repair. Biggest disappointment was having to get new transmission so early into ownership.

We purchased the Buick Rendevioux and is completely disatisfied with the vehicle. Even though it was bumper to bumper warranty, that was the only thing good with the purchase. We had ty rods, bearings, engine, trans, alternator, brakes, tires, paint chipping, bubbling, idiots lights on and off, no dash lights at times, bells ringing, rear door stopped working, passenger back window not working, in fact brakes replaced 3 times!! We feel the car was brought from Katrina to Southern MI and then to Upper MI and sold. We were the lucky customers!! I have reported this extensive repairs to GM and they shrug it off. The car rides good. That is the only plus of owning a Buick. Now getting ready to "dump" the car. Oh by the way, don't bother with car fax, it is bogus. I have reported every repair, the under warranty and out of pocket, and somehow it disappears. And our dealers in in town, don't give you the proper fax, even though you can pay for it. So be cautious to buy from GM, or Buicks. And be cautious where you go to buy a vehicle in Iron Mountain. Listen to other customers, and "drive" away from that dealership.
