2005 Buick LaCrosse Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 092013

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • 64,000 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Buick Lacrosse. The contact stated that the ABS warning indicator illuminated and there was an abnormal sound when the brakes were depressed. The contact also stated that she had to pump the brake pedal several times before the vehicle would come to a stop. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, who could not duplicate the failure however, the mechanic replaced the two front wheel bearing sensors on the front and the back for a total of six times. The remedy repair failed and the ABS light was still illuminated. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 64,000. Updated 10/02/14 updated 3/10/2015

problem #1

LaCrosse 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,000 miles
The traction control system lights come on during wet weather and or turning. The anti-locks brakes fail to work unless pressed completely down. No accidents have occured at this time, but a few close calls. The car is being returned to a GM dealer to inspect and report the problem. The brakes have always had a spongy feeling since date of purchase and since the brake recall was adjusted. I would hope that this problem can be investigated before there is a fatal incident since the anti-lock brakes become very non-responsive when the traction control system fails.
