Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
We have an 2002 Buick Rendezvous AWD. Just recently our car starting to act up while driving. It was making a whining noise and acting as if it was in neutral while stopping. We found out that the transmission, intake manifold, wheel bearing, radiator, A/C condenser, rims are bad making our tires lose air, and head gasket all need replaced. We also were told that the power steering had a leak and was causing a noise. We are looking at having to pay over 5 thousand dollars to fix everything. After looking on the internet, we have seen millions of complaints for all these things breaking in the 2002 model. Something needs done about this. I will do whatever it takes to get help from GM to fix these damaged cars. These should all be recalled.

My Buick renedezous' power steering gear went out at 4500miles and there is still a squeaking noise when I turn the steering wheel. Now the car has 43000 and the condenser has to be repaired for $1000. I thought I bought a great vehicle but I have had nothing but problems with this vehicle. Oh, the buttons on the steering wheel (volume knobs) have been replaced twice.
