Buick Regal Recalls

Power Steering Assist Fails

The power steering system may fail, resulting in extra effort being required to steer the vehicle. Dealers will replace the electric belt drive rack and pinion steering gear assembly free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Oil Leaks Onto Exhaust Manifold

Engine oil can leak onto the exhaust manifold, causing a fire hazard. This concern was addressed in previous recall notifications, but improvements to the repair have been made. Dealers will make improved repairs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Oil Leaks

Engine oil may leak from the valve cover area, which can cause a burning odor and increase risk of fire. Dealers will replace the spark plug wire retainer to redirect the dripping oil on affected vehicles, and will replace the left valve cover gasket on vehicles with the 3.8L V6 supercharged engine.
