Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

The headlamp driver module burned a hole in the engine fuse box. The hdm is now fused into the fuse box and can't be pulled out to replace it. Recall 14V-755 will replace the hdm. But the GM said I have to pay for the replacement of the fuse box. The hdm failed as the recall said.

My low-beam headlamps went out on January 9, 2015, which I was not aware of until a police officer pulled me over indicating to me that I had no headlights. I had to drive home with my high beams on. I had to leave work early all last week in order to get home before dark. I went on line yesterday and typed in my make model and year of my vehicle and found out that there is a recall for my type of vehicle for the headlamps. Contacted Buick and was informed that they can not fix this problem yet because there is no "official" recall for this problem. This is a danger when someone's headlights go out all of the sudden while you are driving at night; this could cause a major accident which could involve lives. They informed me I have to wait to get the "official" notice before they can fix the problem or I can bring in my vehicle and have it looked and fixed at my expense. This is a serious problem and should be taken care asap by Buick at their expense, not the expense of the driver of the vehicle informing them that this problem has already occurred? please look into this matter and let me know how soon can I get this problem fixed. Thank you.

Who are we kidding with this recall? (NHTSA 14V355, GM 14299) correcting a faulty ignition switch with an extra key ring and a paper to add to the owner's manual is a lawyer's solution. Is this a design defect, or is it not" why is it not adequate" 1) it does not insure that the weight of the keys will not cause shutdown. It only makes it a little less likely. 2) in a year's time, even the current owner's will have forgotten the solution. Even if it's in the car's manual, does anyone ever actually read the manual end-to-end". let alone rereading it regularly to refresh their knowledge" it's only there, if at all, for reference. 3) how many second owner's even get the manual" how many will get keysets with the extra ring" my experience is few, if any, subsequent owners will have any reminder of this recall. Let's get serious and be responsible. If there is a design or manufacturing safety defect, then fix it! deflecting liability to the owner is horse-pucky!

We were 60 miles from home having dinner. Got in the car after dark to come home, started it and no headlights. Low beam headlights failed to come on whether by auto or manual switching them on. We had high beam but no low beam or daytime running light. This is very dangerous. It is our only vehicle for daily driving. We need this repaired under the 12-1-2014 recall from Buick.

My wife was taking her father to the hospital when she the low beam headlights were to come on they did not. She had to drive the rest of the way with only her parking lights on. This is not the first time this has happened in 2013 we had to replace a relay under the hood in the fuse box for the same issue. This time we took it into our local parts shop to replace the relay and found out that the fuse box had melted together and have had it towed to be repaired, this was on a 2007 Buick la cross. I understand this is not the first time this has happened this type of vehicle and I believe it should be repaired by the dealer and a safety recall started.
