2006 Buick Lucerne Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 032006

Lucerne 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I have a defective gas gauge which will move up and down while driving. At times when I fill up it will register 3/4 when in fact it is full. Due to this failure I fill up every time I go more than 200 miles. To accomplish this I must keep a sheet and enter every time I fill up and must remember to turn the trip mileage back to zero each time. I have been in contact with GM since November of 2006 and all they say is "its a design change".car was purchased in June 2006 but I did not notice it till October 2006 because my wife had gone through major back surgery in May 2006 and I was too busy caring for her and run the house to notice the gas gauge.
