While making a right hand turn I heard a pop noise simultaneously vehicle dipped harshly with the handling and steering control compromised. After inspection the fractured and broken sway bar was discovered. Sway bar ends cracked both sides with right side completely severed. Car was used in normal driving conditions-mechanic suggested I report this safety issue because this should not happen.

Control arm bushing failed, causing the control arm to grind into the sub frame of the car. The sub frame is aluminum and was damaged very quickly. This issue gave no indication and only became apparent under visual inspection while the car was being serviced for another complaint. The sub frame could fail completely causing steering suspension and brakes to fail.

Panel lights began to go out one at a time in 2009. The low beam head lights went out one at a time; when replaced, both went out at the same time. After that both high beams went out at the same time and had to be replaced. The driver's door handle has broken twice in 18 months. The transmission began to slip after that. The driver seat belt light often remained on while seat-belt is connected. While traveling on a wet road I attempted to brake prior to a water puddle when the car slid sideways off the road into a soggy-bog and spun 2.5 times in a circle in app. 12" of mud before it stopped, and had to be towed out. Presently, the ABS service lights remain on, the clock and radio lights are out, the cd player does not function at all, the seat belt light may come on in transit unprovoked, going on and off for the duration of the trip. If cruise control is not turned off when parked the gas needle drops as if there is a leak. If there are no other recalls on this car, there should be!

Noise like rubbing sound coming from steering column area. Steering gear was replaced once, probably two years ago and now making same sound as before. The tires have been replaced repeatedly on this vehicle and it still feels like it is hopping or walking instead of rolling. This occurs most prominently in the morning at startup and will continue up to 50 mph and beyond. The mechanics will not recognize the problem and have not been able to get authorization from GM regional to do anything other than charge a fee for further diagnosis. This problem existed from the time the vehicle was purchased and the dealerships share information and will not independently diagnose the problem. I have requested GM and Buick to provide a mechanic that is familiar with this problem and can resolve it, but they refuse to act. I am not at all happy with the performance of the vehicle and was under the belief that the dealership and Buick or GM would make it right. I will not recommend either the dealership or GM or Buick to anyone. I do not own another car so I have spent many days without a vehicle during diagnosis and repairs and cannot tolerate sitting for 4-6 hours in the dealership or going without transportation will this is addressed.

I own a 2007 Buick Lacrosse cxl. It has had a vibration in it since it was delivered. I drove it until it had 2,300 miles on it to see if the tires would even out, but they did not, so I took the car in and the dealer balanced the wheels. The vibration was lessened, but still there. I added air to all the tires to a pressure of 30psi cold and this helped but did not eliminate the vibration which seems to be in the rear tires. I put my concerns on the dealer performance form and was contacted by a Buick representative who assigned me a confirmation number and said the concern would be looked at by Buick, but he could offer little in the way of remedy. I currently have 2,900 miles on the vehicle.
