  • 86,000 miles
I own a 2002 Buick Rendezvous with 86,000 miles. Ever since I have had the vehicle I have had problems with the ABS system, having it fixed over & over. About a month ago my vehicle began overheating all the time. Since my extended warranty has expired taking it though the dealership I am sure would cost me mucho bucks which I do not have. My neighbor is a top licensed mechanic who has worked for a Chrysler dealership for 30 plus years. He took the vehicle to work with him one day last week to see if he could locate the problem.. he informed me I had a leak in my intake manifold and it needs to be replaced. He checked to see if GM had any recalls for the problem, low and behold they did not. After telling me how much it would cost to replace it, I nearly passed out. I am a single woman and since the economy has fallen I have had to take 3 pay cuts at work. It was either take the paycuts or look for a new job. I can hardly even I have pay my mortgage, let alone pay for a major issue with my vehicle. I purchased GM cars before with no problems. I believe GM should stand up for their vehicles and fix the issue for me. I now understand there are many people out there that have this same issue.
