2015 Buick LaCrosse Owner Comments

problem #4

I was driving on the highway at approximately 70 miles an hour when my power steering went out. With great difficulty I was able to move across lanes and get to an exit. I drove to the nearest Buick dealer who said they were too backed up to help. While at the Buick dealer I turned the engine off. When I turned the engine back on, the power steering was working again.

problem #3

While driving around 65 mph on a highway. The battery light went on. Then suddenly the power steering and brakes died. It was very scary. A hugh safety issue, this very easily could have lead to a serious accident, crash or death. The steering was very difficult to turn and the brakes hard to push down. But the car was still running and luckily I was close to a exit. I pulled off the highway and stopped in store parking lot. It would not start after getting there. I had to have it taken to a Buick dealership. It was also showing a air bag error message. They told me it had to do with the seat position or something like that. I have had it there 6 times this year with the same issue. About 3 weeks ago for the 7th time of taking it there they finally replaced the hybrid battery stating that was the problem. However it worked for only 9 days. When I went to drive it on the ninth day, the battery light was again on and had no power steering or brakes. I left it in my garage, but ultimately had to take it back to the company who has now had it for 2 weeks stating that there is some type of parasitic draw on the batter and it won't hold a charge. They also can't find the issue with what's wrong with the car. This car is not safe and should be recalled.
