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 6-cyl

I purchased a new 2005 Buick Rendezvous cxl and have had to replace the front left bearing and hub assembly in July 2008, then in April 2009 the right front control arm bushing separated and the dealer replaced the hub assembly again, then in Sept.2010 the bushings and front control arm on the front left side needed to be replaced again. I also had to have the throttle body replaced because of acceleration problems. So far no one has been hurt or any accidents, but how long and how many bearings and bushings and assemblies do I need to replace before a recall is issued?

While slowing down or at stop lights, car will just stall. So far it has restarted every time. Mechanic can not find any problems. Frustrated and afraid to drive far from home. I have also replaced right side wheel bearings at 42,000 miles.

Buick 2005 Rendezvous constant loud whining or moaning noise when you turn the wheel regardless of speed. It is embarrassing. No one can figure it out. It has been ongoing for over a year now.
