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.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • 168,000 miles


I own a 2002 Buick Rendezvous. I have had nothing but problems with the vehicle. The first problem was the speedometer going well over 100mph when I was only driving like 20 or 30. All the lights in the vehicle flashes on and off. The heat sometimes works and sometimes dont it the biggest problem is the intake manifold gasket went on me. I called GM and they told me that they didnt show any recalls nor ever had any complaints. However, I read the complaints online about the same vehicle that I have and clearly have all the same problems. So the question is why didnt this vehicle in nys have any recalls for the manifold gasket. It's weird to me because in Canada they had a class action lawsuit for faulty intake manifold gaskets on the 2002 Buick Rendezvous. Can someone get some answers. It will be greatly appreciated.
