Heads up display flickers on and off in windshield non stop, lighter fuse always blows every 1-3 days. Air suspension pump makes loud vibrating noise directly underneath the driver seat.

A leak was coming from the main seal on the power steering pump therefore it needed to be replaced. In 4/05 one of the front tire hubs was defective causing a loud noise. On 11/10/05 the consumer had to take the Buick in for a variety of reasons. Again the consumer was hearing a noise because both front tire hubs needed to be replaced.
