problem #7

Terraza 6-cyl

  • 150,000 miles


As we were driving home in may of 2014 the left front brake grabbed as if I had applied the brake, since then we have had both wheel bearings replaced lower ball joints and tie rod ends but nothing has changed. It has grabbed several times since then, this is a serious matter that should be dealt with, I refuse to let my wife drive the van especially when we have our five children with us because when this occurs it jerks the to the left towards oncoming traffic.

Vibration at 50+ mph. Pulsating, vibrating when braking. Uneven wear on tires (feathering) noticed at 3,000 miles. Horn takes a lot of pressure to make it work. 2 metro Buick dealers say all above is normal and can not find anything wrong. One dealer printed 2 service bulletins to show me GM says it is normal. Headlights and interior lights dim and brighten on their own. Have had numerous oncoming cars blink their high beams at me thinking my high beams are on. I was denied in my request for a Buick official to get involved. Van is now 9 months old and only 8,000 miles because it is unbearable to drive with all that shaking.

I own a 2005 Buick Terraza. Bought the vehicle in July of 2005 at around 8000 miles noticed a vibration in the steering wheel, took it to the dealer and they said the tires needed to be re-balanced. After I left dealership still noticed the vehicle shaking. Went back to the dealership front tires are now going bald and they state it was my fault for not rotating at 5,000 miles. So they do it for me rebalance tires and say it is okay. After 4 times of going back to dealership for the vibration they say there is nothing they can do about it. So I am supposed to live with this vibration when driving at speeds of 65-70. This is a big safety issue since this will just lead to more problems down the road. The dealer points the finger to Buick, Buick points the finger back to the dealership and nobody wants to tack responsibility for this.

Consumer states: There was a vibration in the car while driving 45 mph. The consumer could feel the steering wheel vibrate. The severity of the vibrating depended on the condition of the road. On 5-26-05 the vehicle was taken to the dealer when it had about 500 miles on it to have the tires balanced. That did not fix the vibrating. The dealer told the consumer they couldn't do anything else to the car until the vehicle had 5,000 miles on it. He talked to GM on approx. 6-30-05 and they told him they couldn't do anything until the vehicle had 7,500 miles. The consumer is afraid the car may have a bad tire or a bad bearing. The consumer then took the vehicle to Goodyear, but they wanted too much money to look at the vehicle.
