I had to take the car in because it would not cool. They determined it wasn't the freon, but it took a while to figure out they needed to remover the a/c completly to replace a switch on the a/c. It works great ever since.

When parked with engine off, listening to radio, message appeared that battery was low and engine should be restarted. Dealer tech could find no codes or apparent issues. Battery and alternator tested good. Radio periodically resets station selected to low-band FM. Occurs when vehicle is parked overnight. Problem has occurred numerous times since buying the car new. Dealer mechanic could not determine cause.

Returned home from an errand and the driver's door would not open from the inside. The other three doors worked normally. Dealer inspected the latch mechanism and found that the release cable was disconnected from the inside handle. Cable re-attached. Radio continues to reset randomly. Occasionally, will get in the car in the morning and find that the tuner has reset itself to the lowest frequency on the FM band. This has been a recurring issue throughout my ownership since new. Dealer finally decided to download new system software. Radio reset itself that same night. Informed dealer, who advised that, at next regular service, they would replace the entire unit. Problem has not recurred since then.

A couple of weeks ago, I cranked it up and it was idling very rough. I shut off the engine, then restarted it. It seemed to smooth out, but it threw a CEL. Went to the dealer the following day, and the codes showed a lean fuel trim condition in both cylinder banks (PO171 and PO174). The fix was to replace the solenoid for the evaporative canister purge valve. Warranty covered it, and all is good.

Front sensor in camera for forward collision warning kept going off. We think the inside cap came loose and was obstructing the sensor. We went to the Buick dealership and my wife was told we needed to purchase an extended warranty for a car that had a 4/50k and was still under the 50k and 4 years. I brought it to Clark Cadillac in Pinehurst where we have purchased multiple cars and they did the assessment. We will be buying the extended warranty from Clark this month for the Buick for 4/48 which cover it til 100k. The other problem was coil wire on the main coil. This caused all the lights to go on and the car almost to shut down. The SM at Clark Cadillac knew the problem when I told him the symptoms.

replaced fluid with Wyman's not OEM at dealership. This actually fixed the transmission slipping problem that we have been reporting for three years. Also replaced Bridgestone new tires with Michelins MS. The Michelins, traction is far better with this high torque engine. Recommend this to all Buick FWDs.
