Buick rendezvous the best car I have had!

The only problem I really have with the car is that it's hard to get the back seats back in the car after they are removed. Simply because I am not strong enough to lift them. The car has amazing mileage and has plenty of space. I moved while owning this car and it took half the time of my first move with a much smaller vehicle. The car has high miles but still runs. Perfectly. The tires need filled up every now and again but the car always tells me when so I do not have to worry about checking on that myself which is really nice. I have taken the car cross country a couple times and it does amazing on highways and bathe car is very quiet on the highway which I find ideal for long trips.

the first problem I experience with my suv running hot that was until I read the manual that is a must with every car, truck, van or suv. I being driving this same car for twelve years and I love it. I have taken it on long trips as well as casual driving in my hometown. now I am experiences the wear and tear you expect like hoses, the starter, the battery, and unfortunately my stirring section went out. but other than that it drives excellent and would love to have another

Leaky rendezvous with wet floorboard.

I loved the car when I bought it but with all of the mileage and wear on the vehicle it's not my ideal daily driver anymore. I've had it for about 5-6 years now and I am having a lot of issues with it. The power steering leaks but not constantly, only so often. There is a leak somewhere in the windshield so the floor board stays soaked from rain. At this point the only thing I like about the car is its paid off and I don't have to worry about payments.

Consequence:
