Dealer has been very helpful, but enough is enough. The brake module just did the same thing it did last year and we just had the oxygen sensor replaced. For this expenisve a car, it has been in the shop constantly and is unreliable. We have never in the last nine cars had any of them be in the shop like this. This is regretfully our first and last Buick at this rate. The car is lovely, but can't be trusted on over a two hour trip.
