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.

2003 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 242013

Rendezvous V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 133,679 miles


My car was rear ended in and the damage was about $1,000, however when I picked it up and took it on the highway my revers lights came on and I was stopped by the State Police who told me to have it checked out. I explained to him that I had been in a car accident and had just picked it up the day before.

However when I contacted my insurance company with the problem they proceeded to tell me that it was not accident related.

I drive my vehicle constantly to and from many different schools and a lot of them I have to utilize the highway so I believe that I would have certainly had been pulled over prior to this accident if there had been any kind of problem especially where my revers lights were coming on.

Up until I was able to have it repaired drivers were yelling out of their windows or honking their horns to let me know that my reverse lights were on.

In addition when I got my car from the repair shop my air conditioner was also not working is this a coincidence or is there a default in my vehicle???. Thank you.

Rendezvous CX 3.4L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,000 miles

I found out after being pulled over by the police that my reverse (back up) lights are always on when I am driving (forward of course). I have contacted Buick, and as usual, they can not find the problem.

I have read several complaints about the electrical systems in the Rendezvous, and I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

Well, to make a long story short, after we could figure out how to fix the problem, AND after receiving a $111 ticket because of it, I simply removed the reverse bulbs so that they will not be on when I drive. I am now wondering if there are more electrical problems looming???????
