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 CX 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 183,305 miles


After purchasing this vehicle, and realizing there were many other "little things" wrong with it, like "check engine light",constantly on...ABS light always on, Gas gauge over to full, all the time, but comes back to empty when ignition turned off,..Temperature gauge heating up to slightly over mid range, but goes back down when on open road...but most of all the variable "whine"..coming from the transmission...This is a very annoying sound to me and other passengers in vehicle..and outside people....Although I like Buick very much,.. maybe I should leave the doors unlocked, keys in ignition, and walk away, hoping someone will steal it.... Sure took a beating with this one.
