Spare Tire and Jack
By bob kambic on


2007 Buick Rendezvous CX 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


The spare tire is impossible to put back once taken from under the auto. The spare hangs by a crank cable system similar to other GM SUVs. However, directly under the spare is both a suspension strut and a part of the frame. So the tire is in a small keyhole. I used the spare and could not get it back into the keyhole. My neighbor and I by laying on the ground under the car were able to push and pull the spare back into the key hole. They should make every GM engineer who designed this do it every day.

Best Features

Good forward visibility and nice driver seat.

Worst Features

Fix spare placement. Jack is impossible to remove and replace. The panel is too small for the jack. Rear visibility, even with mirrors, is terrible. Rear window needs to be lower. Console between front seats is too big and useless.
