About Buick Rendezvous

Proved to be an affordable, practical choice for a family vehicle, Buick Rendezvous was produced by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company and sold under its brand Buick from 2001 to 2007 as a mid-size crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced as General Motors' entry into the crossover SUV segment with Pontiac Aztek, Rendezvous was billed as a combination of the best attributes of a minivan for large cargo capacity and seating up to seven passengers, a luxury automobile due to good ride, handling and smoothness and a sport utility vehicle for its truck styling and available all-wheel drive. Though it received a big sales success, Buick Rendezvous was eventually replaced by the Buick Enclave and Buick Envision after 2007.
The Buick Rendezvous made its debut in the spring of 2001 as a 2002 model year vehicle and was produced based on the U-body/GMT250 platform. It came in two trim levels: CX and CXL as well as a high-line Ultra model. Since it was a premium model, Rendezvous is well-equipped even though the base model. During its lifetime, Buick Rendezvous was powered by a 3.4 L V6 with 185 horsepower and 210 pound-feet of torque, a 3.6 L DOHC V6 good for 245 hp and 235 lb-ft of torque and more rigorous 3.5 L V6 rated at 201 hp and 216 lb-ft of torque. These three engines sent power through either a 4-speed or a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels or all wheels.

Buick Rendezvous Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting spacious interior space, ride comfort, fuel economy and overall value, Buick Rendezvous is good enough for a family vehicle. However, if you have a Rendezvous for family use, then you must be alert about these common problems on it for your whole family's safety:
First, when the Buick Rendezvous reaches about 100,000 miles, the engine failure would become its first issue. This is actually a very serious problem as the engine is the power source of the vehicle; it may useless without a well-functioning engine. Therefore, the best way is to diagnose this issue as early as possible via the symptoms provided by the experienced Rendezvous drivers. They told the issue often starts with a whining noise from the engine or a strong smell of gas in the compartment; then it would evolve in rough running while accelerating, increased fuel consumption, sudden jerks or hesitation while acceleration and even inability to start the vehicle. Once you find the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light come on together, please inspect the speedometer, MAP sensor, fuel filter, air filter, intake manifold gasket and head gasket immediately.
Second, transmission and braking failures are also very tricky for Buick Rendezvous drivers as they both could lead to fatal accidents. Braking system once goes wrong, Rendezvous drivers find the brakes become noisy and poorly responded, and the brake pedal becomes pulsating. The brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum and brake dust shields could be the culprits. And the transmission failure often manifests as rattling sounds from underneath the vehicle, fluids leakage, unable to change gears easily or it fails to work at all. Under such circumstance, the Rendezvous automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transmission pan, transfer case seal may need replacement.
In order to sustain your Buick Rendezvous for a longer time, routine maintenance on some auto parts of your vehicle is indispensable. Because some parts are bound to be more vulnerable due to materials and harsh working conditions, but they do play important roles in lengthening your Rendezvous' lifespan. For example, windshield wiper and wiper blade are helpful in clearing off debris on the windshield so that drivers have a better driving visibility under adverse weather conditions, thus the possibility of car accidents could be lowered. Instrument cluster, door handle, door lock actuator, seat belt and wiper arm should be on the routine maintenance list as well.
