Brakes, April 26, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On certain passenger vehicles the clip that secures the pushrod to the brake pedal arm pin could have been damaged during assembly, it may come off allowing the brake booster pushrod to separate from the brake pedal. This will lead to a no brakes situation when stepping on the brake pedal, leading to an accident. The dealer will install a new brake pedal push rod bushing and retaining clip and, if the clip was missing, a new brake pedal arm assembly free of charge. The GM recall # is 05038

2005 Buick LaCrosse Reviews

really nice car. but having problems with my odometer reading the miles on car, just rebuilt the transmission. very costly,

I have 42,000 miles on my 2005 LaCrosse. With the exception of an ABS sensor that needed to be replaced and some clunking going on now with the steering, I am really satisfied so far with this beautiful, AMERICAN made car!

I inherited a 2005 LaCrosse, and it isn't the car I would have chosen for myself. The 3800 engine provides barely adequate power for a car of this weight, however the handling is better than average. The steering is fairly precise, but the car feels ponderous, yet smooth on the highway. I rated the HVAC low because, as we speak, the automatic temperature controls are blowing hot air into the driver's side of the car, and cold air into the passenger side, while both sides are set at the same temperature. If the car didn't have 12,760 miles on it, I'd trade it tomorrow.
