Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Just purchased a 2002 Buick Rendezvous 4 months ago and have had nothing but issues with this car, it left me stranded and started up by a jump start. I got the battery, alternator, and starter checked all reported fine. Car ran fine for about 2 months then it did it again. The headlights will flicker at night sometimes at a rhythm. The interior lights decided when they will and will not work. Mainly the seat heater buttons. Replaced battery yesterday and while driving to richmond va all interior/exterior lights flashed on and off with the battery light showing in the dash. After a few minutes everything went back to normal. These cheaply made vehicles will cause a serious accident if not deaths if these companies don't stand behind what they put out to it's public. Considering that I owe $5000 for it I will not put alot into it to keep it running. This company needs to fix their vehicles the way they were advertised.

The rear hatch door unlocks by itself from the body computer problem when you first start the car also other things that are controlled by this unit work or don't work including air bags sys outside temp air cond. Cooling fans among others. If you shut the car off and turn it on it goes away until you shut the car off.

I own a 2002 Buick Rendezvous. This vehicle has been nothing but trouble for me since the get go (2004). I have numerous amount of problems that are going on with my vehicle as other owners. All of these problems started at or around 70000 miles. The exterior lights and interior lights go off with out warning and for no reason for sometimes up to a minute (and this has happened at nightime) "major saftey issue" no one can tell us why the vehicle does this. The noise that comes from the front of the vehicle when driven at 45 mph or more is outragious...it makes an awful humming sound so loud that the radio can't be heard. The vehicle also will not start at times as well...for no particular reason at all...nothing can be found wrong with it all!!! it will stall or will not start at all after several starts and turn offs. It has also done this on inclines or after filling at the gas station once as well. If you go back and try to start the vehicle in about a half hour it will start...I figured this out after calling a tow truck several times...and by the time they got to me..they tried to start the vehicle and it started. The vehicle burns a qurt of oil every 3000 miles or so. Now my brakes are to the floor which I have recently had it to the shop again and the mechanic has told me that my brakes are fine that I need my ABS pump (master cylinder) replaced it is leaking $800 +++ just for the part alone hmmmmm"?" just another issue reported like all the above from other Buick Rendezvous 2002 owners. Oh and also my driver side window regulator has broke and that will be costing me $450. Passenger side door does not shut correctly now at all the hinges are messed up on these models. The door gets stuck all the time. All of these problems are problems that other Buick Rendezvous owners of the 2002 models are having and something needs to be done about it asap.
