2003 Buick Rendezvous CX 3.4 from North America
Don't touch it unless you're an auto-mechanic
Fuel pump went at 68,000km in less than 2 years, but 8,000 over warranty. GM didn't want to cover it. Cost C$1000 to repair.
Now, at a bit over 100,000, the transmission has gone. This time will cost C$3500 to put a rebuild inside. Two major repairs in less than 3 years (3 years at June 2006) of use from new, very disappointing.
The comfort of the car is the trade.
Noise level and power are okay.
The 5 seater is roomy for a family of 4, with lots of cargo capacity.
Outrageous repair cost and major repairs in the rather short lifespan.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
