2002 Buick Rendezvous Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Buick's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Buick Rendezvous? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Rendezvous’s towing capacity. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • Does my Rendezvous's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2002 Rendezvous’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Buick. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can Buick Rendezvous transmission fluid leak? Yes. Buick Rendezvous transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
  • Who can fix my  Buick Rendezvous transmission leak? When your Rendezvous transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Should I avoid driving my Buick Rendezvous if there is a transmission fluid leak? It’s not advisable to drive your Rendezvous if it’s leaking transmission fluid. Your transmission system needs transmission fluid to function properly, and a leak can lead to significant problems, such as overheating or reduced performance. You might even experience transmission failure.
