2006 Buick Lucerne Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 152006

Lucerne 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,000 miles


- the contact stated that the 2006 Buick Lucerne would not accelerate after coming to a stop and trying to go forward. The vehicle didn't stall, but when putting the foot on the accelerator the vehicle would not move. This happened intermittently. The contact took the vehicle to the dealership, and they found nothing wrong with the vehicle. They informed the contact that the check engine light didn't come on, and they could not duplicate the problem. The contact stated that his vehicle only had a current odometer reading of 9,500 miles, and felt that this was a safety issue. During his second trip to the dealership they installed a vehicle event data recorder, and he has brought the vehicle to dealer on four other occasions, and has caught four snap shots with the data recording system. The dealer installed a new power train control module, and the vehicle ran well for a month, but the same problems recurred, the vehicle's accelerated again. The failure mileage was 1,000 and the current mileage was 9,500.

Lucerne 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,500 miles
- the contact stated that the 2006 Buick Lucerne would not move forward after the vehicle came to a complete stop. The contact waited approximately 25 seconds before he was able to proceed. He had to push the accelerator a couple of times before the vehicle accelerated. Also, the vehicle would accelerate by itself without warning. The contact stated there was no particular time of the day, and the road conditions have been clear during every occurrence. The contact spoke with dealership, and they installed a data processor, the contact was advised to push data processor button when problems occurred. The vehicle has now started to give false warnings. The vehicle traction control indicator illuminated when the vehicle was not moving. Also, received a service brake assistance warning when the vehicle was not moving. The vehicle currently had 12000 miles. The failure mileage was 7500.
