2002 Buick Rendezvous CXL GUTLESS 6 cylinder from North America
My first and last Buick
Replaced the intake manifold gasket while under warranty. Lucky for me.
Replaced ignition switch after my wife lost all power and lights driving down the expressway. Fortunately I had purchased an extended warranty when I bought the car.
New tires already.
Car is very underpowered. Cannot accelerate without changing down to a lower gear.
The gray/green instruments are impossible to read except in optimum conditions.
Road noise is terrible, as other reviewers have noted.
Comfortable ride; car has all the bells and whistles. The rear proximity indicator is very nice. My wife and kids feel safe in the car.
The dealer here treated my wife so badly when she took the car in for regular service that she no longer will get near that place.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Your dealer sounds horrifying. But don't let this model chase you away from Buick. I have a 93 Riviera. It has 156k miles on it and it still runs like new, at 154k, I took it on a road trip to California (about 2,000 miles) not one problem, evne through floods, blizzards, and desert. Buick DOES make excellent cars. Maybe not the Rendezvous. But then again, it is a newer model, therefore, buggier than hell, not to mention, the whole vehicle is an attempt to attract a new market, a gimmick.
