Rendezvous 6-cyl

I am having trouble out of my vehicle. I have replace several parts and still have not solved the problem. For instance, when I drive my car and cut it off I have to wait 30-45 mins. Before it will start again. I have changed the fuel pump 3 times and other parts of the car and I have not yet found a solution to my problem. I have had the truck for a year and eight months. The vehicle is motion but it cuts off and I have to wait 30-45 mins. Before my truck can restart. It's been going on for some months and I have changed many parts and it still does the same thing.

Gas tank is emitting fumes. Gas pump line crack, leading to fuel settling at the O'ring releases component. Now O'ring has become correded. Cannot replace O'ring since it is connected to the tank. Gas pump and line replaced; now the gas tank needs to be replaced due faulty gas pump. GM has a recall on both 07E021000 and 07V349000; which has been reported it could cause a fire.

I own a 2003 Buick Rendezvous that just "cuts out" while driving. It has 74,756 miles on it and I bought it new. It has dies 4 times (and of course nothing "power" works - my 3 yr old was in the truck every time - it's dangerous!) I took it to my mechanic 3 times and he couldn't figure out what was wrong with it. He suggested I take it to the dealer. It took them 5 days to figure out what was wrong with it. They said first it was a module shutting everything off, now they're saying I also need a new fuel pump. At 75,000 miles it's ridiculous! I've been reading lots of stories on the web with Rendezvous' having the same problems! GM needs to look into this! someone could die having their truck cut out on a major highway and being hit by another vehicle!
