Buick LaCrosse Recalls
The front seat mounted side air bag inflators may rupture and spread metallic debris through the passenger compartment, possibly causing occupant injury or death. Dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules free of charge to resolve the concern.
The headlights and daytime running lights may fail to operate. Dealers will replace the headlamp driver module free of charge to resolve the concern.
These vehicles are being recalled because the headlamp driver module (HDM) can overheat and fail. This will cause the headlights and daytime running lights to stop working. Loss of this lighting will affect the ability of the driver to see the road and reduce the vehicle's visibility to oncoming vehicles, both of which increase the risk of a vehicle crash. The remedy for this problem is still under development and not yet available.
Buick LaCrosse Reviews
I am having a misfire problem, got a tune up at 86,000 and now at 100,000 having the same problem not very happy about it. Anyone else having these problems?
I had to replace the passenger inner tie rod at 40,000 miles. Had to replace rack and pinion at 45,000 miles cost me $655.00 and had to change right rear wheel bearing at 55,000 miles cost me $105.00. Steering shaft makes noise and needs replacing a common factory defect. What a poor quality car from Buick. These problems should have been recalls. What a sorry irresponsible company Buick is...
I also love my 2010 Buick Lacrosse. I wanted to comment on the trunk raising problem. I too have come across this but I think I solved my problem- it seems the trunk button on the key is very sensitive- if I kept the keys in my pocket or they rub against something in my pocketbook- the trunk opens.
