Cons: How would you improve your 2006 Buick Rendezvous?
We bought the car with 16,000 miles in 2006, now have approximately 77,000 miles, are having serious starting problems with it, will not start at least once or twice a month, it will start in about 5 min. after a charger has been hooked up to the battery. Have had a diagnosis put on it 3 different times, battery, starter/celinoid, alternator all check out all right all 3 times. Everyone tells me it is a ground somewhere causing the problem, I have checked out all grounds and found no problem. I have replaced starter/celinoid the celinoid ground wire was not insulated like the new one. Thought this was the answer, it was not. After staring good for a while, it went back to the same problem like before would not start without a boost. Don't know where to go from here.
Second major problem, loud humming noise when driving down the highway (extra loud) told it was the tires, 3 other owners said they had the same thing, replaced the tires, still the same problem. Engine is quiet when idling. With these two major problems I would not buy another one. Buicks used to be noted for a quiet ride. This vehicle is an AWD CXL. I guess with all the other comments I will check the wheel bearings. This loud noise existed since we owned the car. Any other thoughts please let us know.
