I purchased this vehicle used in December 2014, the very first night driving it home, the engine would nit start. I immediately called the dealer, took the car back and watched as they ran a diagnostic. Nothing was wrong with it. I did some research and it seems to be a normal issue with the make and model. Then I noticed the faulty gas guage, reading low fuel then all of a sudden I have gas. Again, contacted the dealer, took it back and yet again, diagnostic ran with clear readings. I looked up thaylt issue and of course, complaints about the same issue were common. Finally, on April 9th I was on my way home and was involved in an accident. It was a front impact accident which totaled the vehicle. The air bags failed to deploy. The windshield was completely shattered, glass flew everywhere. After the front impact, the vehicle rolled over then landed on on the passengers side. How is it safe to have multiple complaints about serious issues and nothing be done about it by the manufactures! I almost lost my life due to the airbags failing which is a, yet again, a common complaint!

Rendezvous 6-cyl

  • 15,446 miles
I purchased my 2006 Rendezvous on 8/28/2006. It had 15,445 miles on it and was still covered under the manufacturers warranty. It was originally manufactured with cloth seats but at the time of my purchase I upgraded to leather which the dealership handled and included in the price of my purchase. I have just learned this week, that on 10/31/2006 a recall was issued for the exact model I purchased where cloth seats were later replaced with leather. According to the recall, problems with the airbag sensor have happened on these vehicles. My air bag light has been on for several months. A local repair shop told me it was the sensor. The cost of the repairs have been quoted very high. I was never contacted by the dealership who sold me my car or the manufacturer, GM, regarding this recall. Now many years later I will have problems with a resale due to the recall or even worse will face the possibility this problem can not be fixed, leaving my family in danger. I am respectfully requesting an investigation into my claim and would very much appreciate any help you can provide.
