Alright at first...but...
I bought my '03 Rendezvous and traded in my old Grand Am. The first six months were great, until I started hearing a weird noise in the front wheels. Turns out, my whole right control arm(or whatever it's called) went bad. I had it replaced ($400), and when I picked it up the mechanic tells me that I'm gonna need the same part on the left side and my muffler is bad. Now, I'm also having problems with the brakes and rotors! I also had to get a new battery because mine went dead after like 2 months of having the car. Once it's paid off I'm going straight to a different car dealer and buying something else.
Rendezvous With the Dealer
I bought my Buick at a premium price as a program car, since my wife is disabled and needs a dependable vehicle. Until the 60,000 mile mark this was not a bad vehicle...after that it completely fell apart. Driver's window fell out ($150), rearview mirror melted ($200), hub went bad ($700) then had to have connector cleaned for same traction issue ($100) which still isn't fixed, fuel evap solenoid ($150), intake manifold gasket ($750), fuel pump ($830), cruise control and outside mirror controls just quit working (haven't fixed yet...)and an assortment of interior parts falling off. It's a new "check engine" light every week or so! I would love to trade it in, but can't put any $$ toward trade in since I'm spending dollar on repair. Plus can get nowhere near blue book with constant "Service Traction" light that my dealer says is "design fault!"
