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


Review

I bought a 2006 a few months ago with approximately 138000 miles on it. I loved the look of the SUV and the visibility was great Unfortunately for me I bought a lemon. The first thing was the rack and pinion $250, then steering column $500, then EVAP system $400 now the throttle body and temperature hoses $475. Also the transmission gasket is leaking don't have a price for that yet. The SUV is taking up a lot of anti-freeze which I am told may require a intake valve manifold seal replacement no price for that either. Had to put 4 new tires $300, brakes $135 and ailment $75 which I expect as maintenance. The repairs have cost more than the total price of the car which was $1350. The retail price for the car currently in good condition to sell will only be $2100 If i can sell it for that. I will be out the amount I paid for the car.

Review

I have been told that Buick makes a great vehicle. This Rendezvous lives up to Buick's reputation. I couldn't be more pleased with this Rendezvous. Gas mileage is average for a crossover. With Onstar and XM radio plus all the other features, I find myself smiling. The SUV is quiet on the road; however, on side roads and in the city it does not take bumps on the road well. Overall, for what I spent, this SUV's owner is one happy camper. : )

We were not looking for bells and whistles.
No major repairs. Many good trips.
Very good head and leg room for tall occupants.

Review

This is by far the worst investment I have ever made. It is one thing after another with this car. Once you fix one problem another arises. To start with it was a speed sensor(wheel bearing) then is was the oil sensor. Then it got to the point where EVERY TIME I fuel up the car would not want to start again. I would literally have to wait 2-3 minutes and still press the gas before it would start again (how embarrassing) very inconvenient. And to top it off last night the battery light came on. I know what you r thinking "simple fix" turns out no. I will have to put it I The garage to find out if it is a problem with the computer, transmission, or the engine. I have had it with this car. I will NEVER PURCHASE ANOTHER BUICK EVER!!! All of these problems I am having seem to be common problems if you check other reviews; however, there have been no recalls or even attempt to fix these problems. I am done with this vehicle. I also now have a light that says reduced engine power and it will not go more than 30mph.
