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.

The contact owns a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. While driving at approximately 35 mph and attempting to engage the front, driver side power window, the window would not respond. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the front drivers side window guides were replaced. The failure recurred a few years later. The vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where the window guides were replaced again. Three months later, the front passenger window exhibited the exact failure. The vehicle was not yet repaired. The failure mileage was 32,000 and the current mileage was 45,000. Updated 10/01/2010. Updated 10/04/10

The driver and passenger window motors on my Buick Rendezvous (2003) have both stopped working. I understand that there are several parts that are made of cheap plastic and to repair will cost over $500 per window.

Both the driver and passenger windows on our 2003 Buick Rendezvous have stopped working. We've been told it could cost up to $400 per window. We've come across several other people with the same problem with this type of GM product.

I bought a 2003 Buick Rendezvous in July 2006. I had to have the driverside window fix immediately thank god the dealer fixed it for me and now here we are in September 2007 and now the passenger side wont go down and I live on disability and I have seen alot of people that have had the same problem. Also heat or air stops when you are sitting at a light.

Every since I purchases this car it has a defect with the windows they come off track and parts falls down inside the window panels. It wont allow you to roll the window neither up nor down. In some cases the window has fallen and had to be replace, this is a manufacturer defect.

Rendezvous 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Front and rear windows fail to properly move or up down. One window falls while driving. Issue is identified as broken window regulators. Problem apparently widespread as parts are hard to find (out of stock). Unable to leave vehicle in public areas as you can't keep the windows closed.
