Tire and Loading Information Labels Are Innacurate

The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and installation instructions. At customers' request, a dealer can install the label for them. The recall began March 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 05109.

Parking Brake Fails Safety Standards May Cause Unintended Vehicle Movement

Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard # 135 "Passenger Car Brake Systems" To meet the standard, vehicles must not move for 5 minutes when stopped on a steep hill with the parking brake applied and the vehicle in neutral. Some of these vehicles failed this test. When the parking brake is released the driver may notice unintended braking while accelerating, decelerating or coasting. This could lead to unintended vehicle movement and cause an accident. The dealer will inspect each rear parking brake caliper and replace free of charge if slippage is noticed. The GM recall # is 05059

Driver's passenger door had to be disconnected due to random opening while driving then sticking open. Windsheild wiper linkage keeps loosening u p and that piece alone is expensive as crap...everything we do to this vehicle lasts for about 6 months tops before it has to...
My wife was in an accident and totaled our van while we were out of town. So we were duped into buying this hunk of junk in an emergency. We have stuck more money into this than any other vehicle we have owned. From sway bars to electrical to sliding doors. Wiper motors to dvd player. Heated seats to hood latch. Flickering lights you name it. I have always been a fan of Buicks but this one has...
