GREEN CHOICE

    Buick LaCrosse

    The LaCrosse is a sophisticated and thoroughly modern sedan. Quiet, roomy and luxurious, it offers responsive handling and a steady ride, qualities not normally associated with past Buicks. However, the cockpit is a bit narrow, the dashboard is busy, and styling restricts visibility and access. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder is mated to a light hybrid system.

Another time I make several trips to a dealer and was told "it was all in my mind" and all the cameras were the same. After complaining to the manager of the dealership the camera was finally changed and the problem was fixed. SEEMS that dealerships in general don't want to fix problems until the customer screams and yells loud enough for them to do something about the problem. In the case of the"

    Milton K., NY (2013 Buick LaCrosse None 3.6-L V6)
    CD player

    "The CD player refused to eject a new CD. The dealer said they had to replace the whole center electronics console since they could not repair/replace the CD player. It took more than 2 months for the new part to come in and the only way we knew is that we were calling them weekly"

    A rear toe link fracture may reduce the driver's ability to control the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
    Summary:
    General Motors, LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2010-2013 Buick Lacrosse, 2012-2013 Buick Regal, and 2013 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles sold or ever registered in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, or Wisconsin. These vehicles may have rear toe links that received an improper amount of electrocoating (e-coat) corrosion protection, which could cause the e-coat to become brittle and break away when contacted by road debris. Over time, the e-coat may chip away, exposing the metal toe link and making it more susceptible to corrosion. Corrosion may eventually cause the toe link to thin and ultimately fracture.
    What should you do:
    Dealers will replace the rear suspension toe links and adjuster fasteners, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed January 27, 2022. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300 or Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is N212346640. This recall is an expansion of NHTSA recalls 20V-764 and 21V-633.
    For more information:
    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.
