2010 Buick LaCrosse Owner Comments

problem #10

Sep 012012


  • 50,000 miles


The contact owns a 2010 Buick Lacrosse. While driving various speeds, the brake and stabilitrak warning indicators illuminated continuously. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where the technician recommended that the vehicle be restarted when the warning indicators illuminated. The contact mentioned that the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken back to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the service stabilitrak needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure recurred months later. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000.

Driver seat moves out of position by itself, I just had the stabili trak light come on which in turn shut off my ABS I had replaced the bad bearing today but was told the other 3 will need it also as this bearing is a defective produce and should have been recalled as they fall apart shutting off you ABS system.this is not a cheap vehicle to purchase I also had to replace my all wheel drive pump which was very costly I believe GM should recall the wheel bearings on these vechiles before someone get hurt! I like GM but you have dropped the ball on this one!!

Engine quit causing brakes and steering to become inoperative. This is the 5th time this has happened. I have previously reported this to NHTSA and General Motors.I never received a response from GM. I took the vehicle to my dealer and the only thing they did was reprogram the vehicle but apparently it did no good. I think the problem is in the ignition system.

3/28/14: Took car to dealership as my brake pedal was appx. One inch from the floor when depressed while stopping car. Was told brake pads, calipers & brake fluid were all okay. I was advised to monitor...that "condition was due to brake pads wearing & when brake pads wear, the pedal will move further down because pads have to travel farther in to press against the rotors". 5/28/14:returned car to dealership as brake pedal was almost touching the floor when depressed. They determined that my master cylinder had failed...was replaced.

Went to get my car serviced because I kept hearing a whirring noise during acceleration in the rear of my vehicle. Both rear hub assemblies went, absolutely ridiculous expense for a 2010 Buick Lacrosse at the "stealership" for $850, wow!! crazy because my friend has the same exact car and has the same exact issue. Shouldn't this be on recall already?? would like a response....
