Lucerne 6-cyl

  • miles


I own a 2006 Buick Lucerne. I took on 6-11-16 to dealer had my tires replaced. Ever since, all four new tires are losing air. Tire pressure light comes on all the time. The chrome plating is flaking off the rims, losing the seal. Dealer has re-sealed the four twice since 6-11-16 only 51,000 miles on this car. 2016 is the first the tire pressure light has ever come on. Corrosion is a problem. However, the batch of chrome plating was faulty. Updated 08/08/16

I lost engine power as I was driving on I75 approximately 16 miles South of venice Florida. One of the tires exploded and the whole wiring system was destroyed due to the tire explosion, as well as the back bumper. My vehicle was towed to the Buick dealer in venice Florida. Repair costs including towing and rental car for the period my vehicle was being repaired elevated to approximately $1600. This does not include replacement of the back bumper which would cost an additional $1400 per Buick's quote. I was informed of a recall by Buick due to the exact reasons that led to my accident and related costs. General Motors is declining responsibility whereas I did experience the problems listed in the reasons for recall number 14299.

After my 2006 Buick Lucerne cxs sits for awhile, 10-12 hours, I get a really bad vibration out of the car. It shakes the entire car as if it is going to fall apart. After 5-10 minutes of driving it smoothes out a bit but doesn't completely go away. Mostly noticeable when its cold out. The dealer replaced the tires with the same brand and model, but the very next day, I had the same problem with the new tires. I have talked to the 2 dealers, Buick customer support, Bridgestone consumer line, a Firestone Corp. Center, and Buick again, all they can say is the tires were made that way and there is no defect. No one wants to stand up and take blame. Now I own a new $42,000 vehicle that they say is normal to have this vibration within the first 5-10 minutes of driving, and never completely goes away. I also notice it when driving on curved roads at higher speeds, from time to time the car floats or suddenly turns slightly on its own when driving at speeds 50-60 mph. Very unhappy, no customer service anywhere.

Experienced front end vibration on delivery. Dealer did a wheel alignment but a slight vibration continued. Eventually it increased and I took it to a independent for balancing and rotation but the problem persisted. The dealer analyzed it as "defective" tires on the front and replaced them. As I drove home the car pulled to the right. Took it back to the dealer and they switched the left front to the right and the right front to the left and claimed that would fix the problem. The car began to shimmy and vibrate badly. Returned to the dealer and they found my right front brake defective. As I left the dealer I noticed that there still is a vibration. Tried for 10 days to have GM talk with the dealer but they continually told me they had not been able to reach them. Because this car had the defective instrument panel that no one can see during daylight hours, front end and brake problems I deemed this Buick Lucerne unsafe and have sold it to a dealer.
