The contact owns a 2007 Buick Lacrosse. In four different situations, while driving 40 mph, the vehicle would randomly stall. The contact heard clanking noises immediately before the vehicle began to hesitate and eventually stall. In two of the incidents, the vehicle was able to be restarted after a few attempts. The vehicle was taken to the dealer twice and they were able to diagnose the cause of the failure and produce an error code both times. They reprogrammed the engine, which repaired the failure for approximately two or three days. During one of the visits, the dealer replaced a transmitter and a throttle body. The repairs would last for approximately 3 or 4 days. The vehicle stalled again while driving 40 mph. The vehicle was unable to be restarted and the vehicle was towed to the dealer. The vehicle has not been repaired and remains at the dealer. The failure mileage was 16,755 and current mileage was 17,334.

Brakes pulsate when braking. Car vibrates while driving and also has a desire to pull to right. Feels likes wheels are out of balance all the time. I have taken the car in and had the balance checked and they say everything is fine. They say it is the make of the tires and Goodyear is aware - they have made a goodwill replacement of the tires due to history of my car.... the engine blew at 1500 miles!!! still no better. Every day I get my fillings rattled loose on the way to work. The pull to the right was fixed when the replaced the steering intermediate shaft - but I had to go back because the dealer did not do front end alignment after replacing the steering shaft "not necessary - it's not the standard practice with the job" when they finally put in on the machine, it was out of toe by.18 degrees. I am still working on getting the brakes fixed. Last time they turned them due to "hard spots". when I go back for the inspection in Nov. I have to have them work on them again. This time I will fight to have the rotors replaced as I am terrified that I won't stop when I apply my brakes because the pulsating has gotten that bad.
