car   Vehicle Shudder problem 1
Failure Date: 10/10/2007

The contact owns a 2003 Buick Rendezvous. While making a right or left turn, the vehicle made a grinding noise. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The contact had to replace the front driver side tire. When the spare was placed on the vehicle, the all wheel drive system had to be disabled. Ironically, the noise stopped immediately afterwards. Once the repairs were made, the all wheel drive was reactivated and the noise returned. When attempting to stop the vehicle, she heard a dinging noise and the all wheel drive indicator light illuminated. The brakes failed and the contact drove off the road in order to stop the vehicle. The brakes locked, which caused the all wheel drive to engage. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and they stated that this was impossible. They stated that the two front all wheel drive sensors needed to be replaced and a code was received for the abs light. The contact stated that the abs light never illuminated. The current and failure mileages were 90,000.
