Purchased this car spring 2017 paid in full to prior owner. Asked prior owner when test drove car how come all the service lights up and including air bag warning light on dash collum are lit up" owners response "not sure but has been like that for as long as can remember we don't think you should worry?" a week later notice the car wants to accelerate on its own? just bolts on my mom and I ? within that month both passenger right side doors front & back power windows will no longer work at all? steering wheel starts making a horrible sound and smell check steering fluid empty replaced fluid only to find out it just poor's out steering will lock up and can't drive most days? notice same issue with radiator? my far worse experience with this car was not knowing how heavy the trunk was as well as not knowing it will fall back shut on own? this happened to me unloading groceries one day crashing down on my head shoulders and mid back pinning me inside trunk dazed and hurt until my son saw me trapped and pulled trunk off my body? should of went to the E.R. was in astronomical amount of pain but didn't have medical insurance so treated myself at home? took 2 month's before bruising and swelling finally went down ? cut on my head took longer to heal? this has accured more than once and I'm absolutely terrified to go near the trunk at all now without my son to help me? interior light will stay on up to an hour after starting and driving the car making night driving dangerously difficult and fearful! passenger front seat has never worked can't adjust seating at all due to it being power seats? I'm terrified every time I get into my car worried it's going to malfunction resulting in hurting my family and I or anyone that could be involved in an accident caused by this monster of a car? please help me" this car is scary

My son was driving when the car started smoking and caught fire. It was close as when he got out the front dash started burning. The car was a total loss. I have video of it burning and listening to my son describe all his clothes and personal things going up in flames. I have been writing and writing about this with every recall notice I receive. And that has been a lot. I only paid $3000 for the car but feel cheated to have lost it all. And almost lost my son! my recall # is 090447. It would be nice to hear back from someone about this. Maybe it can be resolved in my favor as I have a Buick in my driveway now. I like them, always have.

My major concern is when I went to replace my tires today Goodyear ls Eagle I was told the tie rods were worn so badly that they could not do it without replacing them to align the car properly. There had been a noise in the front of the car since the day one that I thought was normal tire noise, based on my years of driving (37 without incident) it seems worn tie rods at 31,000 miles is something to consider investigating. My driving is local 90% of the time, 7 miles each way to work, 5 days a week. Once a month a trip to boston. I took the opportunity to report the other little incidental problems that do not have an immediate effect on my safety, the exception being the air bag light coming on and off intermittently. I have not reported these minor probelms to the dealer. I have reviewed the recall notices for my Buick Regal and based on my VIN number I am hoping NHTSA can let me know if all the recall work has been performed. I purchased the car new in July 2000 and I am only aware of two recalls that required us to replace the labels on our visors and return to the dealer for seat belt assembly. I have never been contacted for the other reported recalls although they occurred in May 00 and June 00 and I did not purchase the car until 7/29/00. Is it safe to assume the recalls in may and June were performed on my car if it was one of the vehicles in need?
