2005 Buick LaCrosse Questions
ABS and trac lights on after having wheel bearing replaced. What is this about? Is this possibly related to the wheel bearing repair?
I just paid almost 500.00 to replace the steering shaft. Now there is another recall please see if you can find out what that is about. I am not buying another car as I am 85 years old and I love my car. The first recall on the brakes was taken care of if the dealer did it right. Thanking you ki...

2005 Buick LaCrosse Recalls
Excess weight on the key ring can cause the ignition switch to move out of the run position without warning, turning off the engine. This defect can also affect the safe operation of the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items from their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be removed from the key ring. Dealers will install two 13mm key rings and key insert into the vehicle's ignition keys to correct this concern.
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 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 dr...
