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

Rendezvous 4WD 6-cyl

  • 49,656 miles


2003 Buick Rendezvous stalling intermittently and fails to start since May 2005. Once car's engine stops and I remove the key, I am unable to re-start car. I have brought the car in twice for problem. Each time it has been mis-diagnosed and I am charged for un-necessary service. Lou sobh has suggested that it was a bad cell in the battery and transmission and brakes needed serious attention - I requested the emergncey items to be fixed the replacement of the battery and transmission and paid $537; however, the car was still stalling. I returned the car to lou sobh, then I was told I now require a new fuel pump all for $900. A recall is posted for the 2004 Buick rendevous. I beleive this also pertains to my car model and the recall must be expanded to include the 2003 Buick with the same problem.
