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

Engine, November 13, 2006

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On some vehicles, the fuel tank may be missing the adhesive that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell. This may allow fuel and/or fuel vapors to leak out between the layers, increasing the risk of fire. Dealers will inspect the serial numbers on the fuel tank and replace it if needed.

Heating & Air Conditioning, March 4, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The HVAC system may stop functioning due to a software issue in the climate control module. System failure would reduce the driver's ability to command the defrost function. This can reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. To correct the problem, dealers will reprogram the electronic control module for the HVAC. The recall is expected to begin by March 11, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11057.

Suspension & Steering, August 3, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The anti-skid (stabilitrak) system may have an incorrect calibration, which can cause the system not to properly detect a sensor malfunction. A malfunctioning sensor may cause the stabilitrak (ESC) to falsely activate, resulting in sudden changes in vehicle handling and deceleration. These unexpected changes in vehicle handling may cause a loss of vehicle control. Dealers will update the electronic brake control module (EBCM) software to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11222.

Buick LaCrosse Reviews

Very comfortable and very quiet, limited trunk space, V6 has big time power when you hit it (hang onto the wheel) fuel economy pretty good if you drive with a very light foot. If you don't watch it you'll not be happy with the fuel economy. Highway 34 Canadian mpg (20 %) less U>S> with cruise on 70 mph, city can get as low as 9 or 10 with a heavy foot or 20 watching it.

Bought my Buick LaCrosse in 2010 and loved it, until I realized how poor the visibility was while in the driver seat with the front headrest so large and the windows so small makes it really hard to see out in back and on the sides, and I do try and use the mirrors, but sometimes you just want to look out the window, I feel that if the headrest were smaller and the windows a little larger it would help this style of car and be a lot safer and not really take away from the style either. Even if the front headrest were smaller or the size of the ones in the back would help a lot too. Sorry but have had one small accident and several close call both because of poor visibility.

Replaced valve at 68000 miles, using one qt. of oil every 2000 miles. Valve seals were wore out!

I bought a 2010 Lacrosse with 56k miles on it and it has been nothing but problems. New console with the electronics replacing radio, nav, clock etc. It had a memory problem and couldn't be fixed without replacing the whole middle console. Issue with it not recognizing when its in park, acceleration, and now the drivers side floor board is falling apart. Its a good looking car and has a ton of options, I got the CXL and was excited about it. Now I hate it and its one of the worse cars i have owned. I have only made 2 payments and will get out of this car as soon as I can.
