Pushing on the pedal will not apply the brakes and a vehicle crash could occur without prior warning.

Dealers will install a new brake pedal push rod bushing and retaining clip and, if the clip was missing, a new brake pedal arm assembly free of charge. the recall began on april 26, 2005. owners may contact buick at 1-866-608-8080.

If the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. additionally, a key knocked out of the run position will cause loss of engine power, power steering, and power braking, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Gm will notify owners, and dealers will install two key rings and an insert in the key slot or a cover over the key head on all ignition keys, free of charge. the recall began on september 23, 2014. owners may contact general motors customer service at 1-800-521-7300 (buick), 1-800-458-8006 (cadillac), and 1-800-222-1020 (chevrolet). gm's number for this recall is 14299.

04/10/14 Transmission and Drivetrain General motors llc (gm) is recalling certain model year 2014 buick regal, lacrosse, verano, and enclave, and chevrolet impala, malibu, cruze, and traverse, and gmc acadia vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. in the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. as such, these vehicles do not conform to federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) number 102, "transmission shift lever sequence, starter interlock, and transmission braking effect." they also fail to conform to fmvss number 114, "theft protection and rollaway prevention."

If a vehicle's shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in. should a disengagement occur while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver may be able to shift the lever to the "park" position, but the vehicle transmission may not be in the "park" gear position. if the vehicle is not in the "park" position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. a vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

General motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. the recall began on april 10, 2014. chevrolet owners may contact general motors at 1-800-222-1020, buick owners at 1-800-521-7300, and gmc owners at 1-800-462-8782. general motors' number associated with this recall is 14048.

08/12/11 Brakes and Traction Control Gm is recalling certain model year 2012 buick lacrosse passenger vehicles manufactured from june 9, 2011, through july 2, 2011, for failing to conform to the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard no. 126, "electronic stability control systems (esc)." the stabilitrak system has an incorrect calibration that may cause the system to not properly detect if a sensor were to malfunction, and the warning light indicating that the system is not operating would not illuminate, as required in the safety standard.

The improper diagnosing may cause the esc to falsely activate, resulting in sudden changes in vehicle handling and deceleration, particularly at higher speeds, which may cause the driver difficulty in maintaining the vehicle's desired path of travel and desired vehicle speed, and could result in a crash without warning.

Gm dealers will reprogram the electronic brake control module free of charge. the safety recall began on september 12, 2011. owners may contact buick at 1-866-608-8080.

08/01/14 Electrical and Air Conditioning General motors llc (gm) is recalling certain model year 2014 buick lacrosse vehicles manufactured april 30, 2013, to september 1, 2013. in the affected vehicles, a wiring splice in the driver's door may corrode and break, resulting in the absence of an audible chime to notify the driver if the door is opened while the key is in the ignition. additionally, the retained accessory power (rap) module may stay active for ten minutes allowing the operation of the passenger windows, rear windows, and sunroof. as such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard (fmvss) numbers 114, "theft protection and rollaway prevention," and 118, "power-operated window, partition, and roof panel systems."

Without an audible indicator, the driver may not be aware that the driver's door is open while the key is in the ignition, increasing the risk of a vehicle rollaway. if the passenger windows, rear windows, and sunroof can function when the vehicle is turned off and the driver is not in the vehicle, there is an increased risk of injury if an unsupervised occupant operates the power closures.

Gm will notify owners and dealers will inspect the driver door window motor harness, and replace the electrical splice, as necessary, free of charge. the recall began august 2014. owners may contact buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300. general motors number for this recall is 14235.

If the vehicle is continued to be driven, the engine may stall and/or the vehicle may not start. in addition, there may be a burning or melting odor, smoke, and possibly a fire in the trunk.

Gm will notify owners and dealers will test the gcm and replace it, as necessary, free of charge. the recall began on june 11, 2013. owners may contact gm at 1-800-521-7300. gm's recall campaign number is 13136.

Owners may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

If engine braking is unexpectedly removed, it may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Gm will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the transmission control module free of charge. the recall began on april 3, 2013. cadillac owners may call 1-866-982-2339. buick owners may call 1-866-694-6546.

11/06/06 Electrical and Air Conditioning Certain vehicles originally built with cloth seats that were equipped with an automatic air bag passenger sensing system and later reupholstered with aftermarket leather seat cover kits are involved. testing has indicated that the aftermarket leather seat covers can cause the passenger sensing system to malfunction.

If the passenger sensing system malfunctions, the front air bag on the passenger side may be disabled when it should be enabled, or enabled when it should be disabled. in either case, in the event of a crash that requires air bag deployment, a front passenger's level of injury may be increased.

Because a replacement leather seat cover that is compatible with the passenger sensing system is not available, general motors (gm) will repurchase these vehicles in accordance with the terms stated in gm's letter to owners. the recall began on november 6, 2006. owners should contact gm at 1-877-477-1022 to begin the process of repurchasing their vehicle.

Buick LaCrosse Recalls

Some things are often misunderstood about recalls and technical service bulletins (TSBs). Plus a disclaimer.

  1. Recalls do not have to be issued only because something is prone to failure. NHTSA (a government agency) can only require a recall if a failure will affect safety, emissions, fuel economy, or compliance with some other regulation or law. Manufacturers can voluntarily recall cars for problems that do not affect these, though.
  2. Recalls often apply to only some cars of a specific model year, rather than all of them. You should receive a letter from the manufacturer if your car has been recalled. You can also check with the dealer, which will know which (if any) recalls pertain to your car.
  3. The primary purpose of TSBs is to inform dealers about known problems with a car and how to fix them. They are not the same as recalls. As with recalls, TSBs often only apply to some cars, not the entire model year.
  4. Dealers often will not provide a preventive repair just because a problem described in a TSB might happen to your car. They'll usually want to observe symptoms that the problem is already affecting your car.
  5. Even if there are symptoms, a manufacturer doesn't have to pick up the cost of a TSB repair if the car is out of warranty, though sometimes they do.

We provide the text of recalls and TSBs as provided by NHTSA. There can be errors in the text. If you sign up for notifications in My Garage, we will try to get these to do, but for various reasons (some beyond our control) cannot guarantee you will receive them. When in doubt about a recall or TSB, contact the dealer.
