I am having major issues as well. I bought my Buick 2011 and every since I had this car there has been issues. I have replace the drums, the radiator sensor, my electrical wiring is acting up. The windows get stuck and sometimes do not want to come back up. Now I am having issues with my differential and transmission. I am still stuck in this loan and owe more than 3,600 dollars. I am so angry and frustrated with this. This needs to be looked into for a class action lawsuit or something. I should of read the complaints before I found myself purchasing one. This is crazy!!!!!!!

I am going through the same thing. I have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous CX, purchased in 2006. I have had one problem after another since I purchased it. For the last three years I have had to go without any air conditioning. We have replaced the condenser twice since it purchase. Most recently, I called the BUICK dealership to report my latest nightmare with the car. I was traveling on the freeway at 65 miles per hour when the lights in the instrument panel went off. Every light imaginable started going off. The needles on the odometer, gas gauge, and temperature malfunctioned. The horn then went off and the radio displayed the word LOCK on the front. My windows would not roll down, the radio shut off. My hazard lights would not work as they were already flashing from what I think was the alarm system going off. I had many people honking at me. I did not know what to do. I started losing power as if the system was shutting off on me. Mind you, everyone is traveling 65 mph or higher. If it were not for some of my window already being down due to no air conditioning. I would have been killed. I placed my arm and hand out the window motioning for people to let me get into their lanes so I could pull over. This took almost four minutes. The worst four minutes of my life. I thought it was all over for me. BUICK said they have no RECALLS out and that my Warranty is expired. This does not seem right. It is a SAFETY issue as far as I am concerned. Any help please. I have been told it is a Body Control Module. Please advise. Do I call BBB?

Thank goodness you weren't in an accident! I just went on a 700+Mile RT and about 100 miles into it all of my gauges and needles were going haywire just as you have described. All the dash lights blinking on and off, needles moving right to left. I drove a couple of times briefly at night and when this happened the headlights would also blink on and off. When I parked and locked the car a few minutes after the alarm system would go off. I have it in at the shop right now and they suspect a loose ignition switch and are replacing it for $275. After reading these posts I am afraid that is not the problem and I will have to pay that regardless. Last year I had the over heating problem. Cost over $3000 to repair. It was a cracked head. I bought my rendezvous brand new in 2002 and have been very happy with it otherwise.

Update on my 2002 Rendezvous electrical problem...after reading the post #284 by nmatamoros I called the service department and told them to check the Body Control Module and not to replace the Ignition Switch. Turns out it WAS the Body Control Module! It will cost nearly $600 to replace but thank goodness I read this post or I would have had to also pay $275 for the ignition switch which I did not need. Why don't the mechanics read this forum? All I did was google my issue and landed here. I really know nothing about cars!

I had my body control module fixed and I am still having the same problems. If you read posts here you will see lots of people have replaced the body control module and it doesn't fix the problem.

I am so sorry to hear about your issues. After speaking with General Motors and notifying the National Safety Highway Administration I got no where. Approximately one week later while my Buick sat in the drive way, I allowed my daughter to go to the store. Within one mile from the house the head gasket blew. That was the end for me. I had not choice but to sell it on Craigslist as a Mechanic Special. About 3 weeks ago I finally bought a new for me, but used Isuzu Trooper. I should have done that along time ago. So far so good. I wish the best for you. Be safe.
