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.

2003 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

problem #1

As other's have also complained with no positive outcome with having replacement/repairs done. The panel lights frequently come on regarding "trac" on/off...frequent brake grinding which is felt through the brake pedal when brake pressure applied. Scared that one day when I apply the brake pedal the car will not stop as needed. Wife becomes anxious every time she drives.

Have had some of the same repair/replacement as everybody else done with no true "fix"...out money...and nobody (Buick) wants to come up with a solution, and all mechanics can do is keep replacing with hope that something done will help cure the problem. (poor mechanics)...and Poor Us!

Obviously Buick doesn't care or they would do a recall on something this annoying and dangerous. Guess not enough people have sustained death or serious injury in order for them to take responsibility of an error in design or defective parts. Buick has always been a favorite...but perhaps a divorce is coming. I wouldn't even feel comfortable selling the car to another person as I don't want them dead or injured either. Totally frustrating!
