AIR BAGS

10/31/2016 - GORHAM, ME
THE AIRBAG WARNING LIGHT COMES ON WHILE THE CAR IS TRAVELING INDICATING THE AIRBAGS ARE MALFUNCTIONING. IT COMES ON AND OFF INTERMITTENTLY. I BROUGHT IN TO THE DEALER AND THEY CLEARED THE MALFUNCTION CODE AND IT HAPPENED AGAIN. THEY WANT TO CHANGE THE SENSOR UNDER THE SEAT FOR $1250 SINCE IT IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY. IT SEEMS TO OCCUR WHEN THE CAR IS IN MOTION GOING EITHER UP OR DOWN AN INCLINE.

AIR BAGS

10/1/2016 - NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ
AIRBAG LIGHT COMES ON INTERMITTENTLY. THIS IS A SAFETY CONCERN, SINCE APPEARANCE OF THIS LIGHT MAY INDICATE THAT AIRBAG WOULD NOT DEPLOY IN THE EVENT OF AN IMPACT. THE DEALERSHIP CHECKED THE CARE AND CLEARED THE CODE, AND ADVISED TO KEEP AN EYE ON THIS SHOULD THE LIGHT COME BACK ON. I HAVE CHECKED ONLINE AND THIS SEEMS TO BE A PERVASIVE ISSUE WITH THIS PARTICULAR MODEL YEAR AND EVEN YEARS FOLLOWING THIS. IN SOME CASES THERE HAVE BEEN RECALLS THAT INVOLVED SOFTWARE ISSUES. I SPOKE WITH THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY ADVISED THAT THEY COULD CHANGE THE SENSORS, BUT THIS RUNS ABOUT $2500 AND THERE IS NO WARRANTY THAT IT WOULD RESOLVE THE ISSUE OF THE INTERMITTENT APPEARANCE OF THE AIRBAG LIGHT. SHOULDN'T THIS INVOLVE AN OFFICIAL RECALL, SINCE IT IS SUCH A COMMON PROBLEM FOR THIS MODEL AND SHOULDN'T THE MANUFACTURER BE RESEARCHING A SOLUTION TO ENSURE DRIVER/PASSENGER SAFETY?

AIR BAGS

7/10/2016 - BALTIMORE, MD
INTERMITTENT AIR BAG WARNING LIGHT GOES ON AND OFF FOR PASSENGER SEAT WHETHER OR NOT THE SEAT IS OCCUPIED. THIS HAS CONTINUED FOR TWO YEARS. ON-STAR FAILURE CODE IS ALWAYS B0092. I TOOK THE BUICK TO A DEALER WHO ATTEMPTED TO FIX IT TWICE WITHOUT LUCK. THE THRID TRIP FOR A "FIX" WOULD HAVE COST ME $ 1,200 WITHOUT ANY GUARANTEES. IT STILL IS IN USE BUT I NOW KEEP MY FINGERS CROSSED. THIS HAPPENS WHEN PARKED OR DRIVING.

STEERING

THE STEERING IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TURN AT SLOW SPEED OR IDLE. IT HAS 64,000 MILES ON IT. PLEASE HELP, IT'S NOT A SAFE CARE TO BE DRIVING AND AS MANY OF THE SAME PROBLEMS OTHERS HAVE WITH THE SAME YEAR AND SUPPOSEDLY FIXED BY BUICK IN 2008 I THINK THEY NEED TO UPGRADE OUR STEERING GEAR.
