2004 Buick Rendezvous - extremely unreliable horn (design flaw). I have narrowly escaped many accidents by sheer luck. Have had people backing into me & been unable to honk the horn because I could not find the very limited "sweet spot." When the steering wheel is turned even slightly, it is impossible to find!

The starter and horn did not always work. Thermostat and fuel gauge was not accurate. There had previously been a problem with the ignition switch and it was repaired due to a recall. The problem with the starter started in March of 2005. These problems have not been repaired as of yet. When the consumer took the vehicle it to the dealership they told her it was designed that way.

While pressing down on the horn, it failed. The dealer had inspected the vehicle several times and could not duplicate the problem.
