We recently acquired an '03 CX Rendezvous from a family member, had
5800 miles on it. At just over 6000 miles warning lights started
coming on, dealer says it needs a new BCM, it's in the shop for a week
since there is a long wait on the part. In reading other message
boards I see a lot if dissatisfaction issues with these vehicles,
BCM's being the most common complaint, brakes, leaking gaskets of just
about every kind.
Knowing that a majority of people who seek out help on message boards
are those who have a problem and that there may be many more satisfied
owners out there than not, I'm curious to know if anyone here has
experience with Rendezvous - I've seen a few techs post - and if they
have been as bad as the reading I've been doing would make them out to
be? Do we have a shot at this being a one time thing, and that it
won't happen again?
After my initial impression of this car being too mini-van for my SUV
tastes it's definitely grown on me, I love driving it and it's very
functional. My second question would be, does anyone know if the 3rd
row seat can be added to the CX? It's listed as 'available' in the
brochures with the CX Plus package. The carpet in the back looks like
it's generic and has the cut-outs where the bench would lock in.
Underneath those cut-outs it looks like are metal plates, I was
curious if these are knock-outs and the mounts may actually be under
there or easily installed? I'm assuming these vehicles roll off the
same assembly line, so the 'bones' may be there -
