2004 Buick Rendezvous Owner Comments

I purchased a 2004 Buick Rendezvous from a car dealership, 2 car guys llc, in york, pa on 7/10. At the time I was very pleased with the purchase with the low sticker price of 4K, low mileage of 68K, and the 5/18 inspection. The car, after checking the engine and frame, itself seemed to be in decent condition and I brought it home that day. I was very pleased with the car for two weeks and even made a long trip to altoona, pa with my family. Then earlier this week I noticed some issues with the front driver's side brake. I took it in to Mr. Tire on 7/26 for a brake examination. The technicians at Mr. Tire could not find anything wrong with the brakes and even mentioned that they were new. I wanted them to test drive it double check and then after they returned they thought maybe a caliber was locking up on it. So they lifted the car again and realized that the frame itself was expanding. So they stuck it on a larger lift to ensure that that frame would be shredded. The lead technician brought me out to look at the frame itself. Both sides of the frame had been filled with foam insulation and then spray painted with black paint to match the frame. Someone had went to a lot of effort mask the eroded frame. The guys from Mr. Tire mentioned that no way that could pass a state inspection looking like that. I looked underneath the car at the time of purchase and was unable to see the camouflaged rust. Three technicians were under that car the first time the Buick was lifted off the ground and did not notice the "slide of hand". I would have never even test driven the car with my son knowing that it was unsafe for the road.
