Buick Recalls

Models : Buick Lucerne, Cadillac DTS
Electrical & Lights, November 4, 2010
RepairPal Expert Overview:

General Motors is recalling 2010–2011 DTS and Buick Lucerne models with V8 engines due to contact between the starter/alternator cable and the power steering return line. This can result in a worn power steering return line, which can cause a power steering leak, possibly resulting in a loss of power steering. This can lead to an increase in the risk of a crash and/or an engine compartment fire. Dealers will secure or reroute the necessary lines, free of charge.

When moving the seats from a flat to upright position, the second row seat belt buckle may bind on the second row seat trim shield. This could prevent proper operation and securing of the safety belt, which would increase the risk of injury to an occupant. Dealers will modify the second row seat trim shields. The GM recall number is N100243. This recall began on August 18, 2010.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The heated washer module under the hood could overheat due to excessive current draw. Under certain conditions, this could result in an under hood fire.

This recall is expected to begin on June 20, 2010.
