I have selected "me too" to 3 other common problems with the Lacrosse. I contacted buick for assistance on repairs and they said Garber Buick in Saginaw Michigan would only agree to $50 assistance on a $443 repair bill. How sad! But they had no problem taking bail out assistance from my tax paying money!!!!!!!!!!!!
