WHILE AT A STOP SIGN/LIGHT (STATIONARY) THE VEHICLE WILL MOVE FORWARD ON IT'S OWN. I WILL HAVE MY FOOT FIRMLY ON THE BRAKE AND IT MOVES. IT DOES IT AT RANDOM. I HAVE TAKEN IT TO BUICK AND EVEN CONTACTED CORPORATE ABOUT THIS AND NOW AM AT A STAND STILL. BUICK STATED THAT BECAUSE THERE IS NO RECALL, NO ERROR CODES, AND THEY CAN'T DUPLICATE THE ISSUE THEY DON'T KNOW HOW TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. I AM STUCK WITH A VEHICLE THAT HAS A SAFETY ISSUE. MY MAJOR CONCERN IS THAT IT MAY ONLY BE MOVING ABOUT A FOOT NOW BUT LATER WILL IT JUST KEEP GOING CAUSING ME TO BE IN AN ACCIDENT.

THE CONTACT OWNS A 2013 BUICK VERANO. WHILE DRIVING, THE CONTACT INADVERTENTLY HIT THE KEYLESS IGNITION BUTTON, WHICH RESULTED IN A LOSS OF POWER. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO THE DEALER WHERE THE TECHNICIAN STATED THAT THE VEHICLE OPERATED AS MANUFACTURED. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED OF THE FAILURE. THE FAILURE MILEAGE WAS APPROXIMATELY 35,000.

AIR BAGS

8/15/2016 - KENDALLVILLE, IN
MY FIRST COMPLAINT HAS TO DO WITH THE "LOW FUEL" WARNING INDICATOR NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. THIS DOESN'T OCCUR OFTEN, BUT I'VE NOTICED IT HAPPEN 3 TIMES IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS, AND I'M UNSURE OF WHEN THIS ISSUE FIRST BEGAN. TYPICALLY, THE FUEL LEVEL INDICATOR WILL BE AT 1/4 OR BELOW, AND WHEN DRIVING A LONG DISTANCE, STOPPING AND GOING, AND/OR ON HILLY RURAL ROADS, WHEN THE NEEDLE CROSSES INTO THE RED AND EVENTUALLY HITS "0" THE "LOW FUEL" INDICATOR HAS NOT LIT UP, NO MESSAGE APPEARED, AND NO WARNING CHIME, BUT THE DIC STATES "LOW FUEL RANGE". PERHAPS THE SENSOR IS GOING BAD, BUT WHY WOULDN'T THE LIGHT TURN ON IF THE SYSTEM KNOWS THE FUEL LEVEL IS LOW? I CAN PARK SOMEWHERE AND IDLE FOR 30 MIN AND THE LIGHT STILL WON'T TURN ON. ONLY AFTER I SHUT THE CAR OFF AND RESTART IT DOES THE LIGHT/WARNING CHIME/MESSAGE APPEAR. CURRENT MILEAGE: 88,600 MY SECOND COMPLAINT PERTAINS TO THE AIRBAG: ON/OFF INDICATOR FOR THE FRONT PASSENGER. WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED TO ON WITH OR WITHOUT THE ENGINE RUNNING, THE SYSTEM OPERATES NORMALLY, BUT IF I'M CHARGING MY PHONE USING A CAR CHARGER CONNECTED TO THE FRONT AUX POWER OUTLET, AND LAY IT DIRECTLY ON THE RIGHT HALF OF THE PASSENGER SEAT, IN ANY POSITION, THE AIRBAG LIGHT WILL SWITCH FROM OFF TO ON, BUT THE SAFETY BELT LIGHT DOES NOT TURN ON OR FLASH, AND NO CHIME IS HEARD. WHEN I LIFT MY PHONE, THE INDICATOR RETURNS TO NORMAL IN A FEW SECONDS. I'VE NOTICED THE PHONE HAS TO BE DIRECTLY ON THE SEAT WITHOUT ANYTHING BENEATH IT IN ORDER FOR THIS TO OCCUR, AND IT'S ONLY ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SEAT. I JUST NOTICED THIS A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, BUT THE CURRENT MILEAGE OF 88,600 STILL APPLIES. I HAVE NOT NOTIFIED A DEALER ABOUT THESE ISSUES FOR FEAR OF HAVING TO PAY COSTLY REPAIRS I CAN'T AFFORD. HOWEVER, THE AIRBAG ISSUE CONCERNS ME THE MOST. I BELIEVE THERE'S ELECTRONIC INTERFERENCE CAUSING IT TO OCCUR, BUT IT SHOULDN'T BE HAPPENING REGARDLESS.

STEERING

7/5/2016 - HOUSTON, TX
MY CAR HAS ONLY 55, 148 MILES AND THE POWER STEERING MODULE HAS GONE OUT ALREADY. I HAVE HAD MY CAR FOR ONLY 3 YEARS AND I HAVE ALREADY HAD PROBLEMS WITH THE TRANSMISSION AND NOW THE POWER STEERING. I AM NOT SURE HOW MUCH IT WILL COST TO GET IT REPAIR. MY CAR LOCKED UP AS I WAS DRIVING IT. I LOOKED DOWN AND SAW MY DASHBOARD FLASHING SAYING THAT THE POWER STEERING NEEDED TO BE SERVICE. I COULD NOT TURN THE CAR AT FIRST. ALL I COULD DO IS JUST GO STRAIGHT. THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN I WAS ABLE TO TURN THE CAR, BUT IT WAS VERY HARD.

IF I REMOTE START MY CAR IT DOESN'T CUT ON AND FOR THE LAST FEW WEEKS MY CAR HASN'T BEEN STARTING INSTANTLY OR I HAVE TO TRY NUMEROUS TIMES TO GET IT TO START, WHEN IT DOES START ALL THE PANEL LIGHTS STAY ON, THE HAZARD LIGHTS COME ON WITHOUT ME TURNING THEM ON AS WELL AS THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS. MY REARVIEW CAMERA GOES BLACK IN THE MIDDLE OF ME BACKING OUT AND TURNS BACK ON ONCE I PLACE THE VEHICLE IN DRIVE. WHILE DRIVING THE WHOLE SCREEN TURNS BLACK AND THE RADIO WORKS SOMETIMES. ALSO WHEN I TURN ON MY A/C THE ENGINE GETS LOUDER AND IT MAKES A WEIRD NOISE UNTIL I TURN THE A/C OFF, THE A/C DOESN'T GET AS COLD AS IT USE TO AND MY HEAT GETS HOTTER THAN IT USED TO SOMETIMES WHEN I RIDE WITH THE HEAT THE CAR TURNS OFF. ALL OF THIS STARTED HAPPENING ON APRIL 18, 2016

ENGINE

3/11/2016 - BAY VILLAGE, OH
THE CAR ONLY HAS 20,000 MILES ON IT. I WENT TO THE GROCERY AND DRUG STORE WHICH IS ONLY 4 MILES FROM MY HOME. I PULLED INTO THE GARAGE AND NOTICED THE FAN WAS RUNNING (ENGINE FAN) HARD. BUT ASSUMED IT WAS NORMAL FOR ANY CAR TO COOL DOWN THE ENGINE. I WENT IN THE HOUSE AND THE FAN HAD STOPPED ON THE CAR. I HAD TO GO BACK INTO THE GARAGE ABOUT 10 MINUTES LATER AND THE CAR FAN WAS ON AGAIN! A BLOWING FULL BLAST. I OPENED THE DOOR OF THE CAR, LOOKED AT THE DASH, SAW MY FAN FOR THE AIR IN THE CAR WAS AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL, TURNED THAT DOWN BUT THE CAR FAN OUTSIDE CONTINUED TO RUN. I RAN INTO THE HOUSE, GOT MY KEYS AND LOCKED THE CAR WHICH TURNED OFF THE ENGINE FAN. MY CONCERN IS THAT IF THIS HAPPENED AND CONTINUED TO RUN, MY HOUSE IS AN ATTACHED GARAGE, IT COULD EASILY HAVE STARTED A FIRE. I HAVE CALLED GM AND I AM WAITING ON A CALL BACK BUT I CONCERNED NOT ONLY FOR MY WELFARE BUT EVERYONE. I HAVE NEVER SEEN A CAR DO THIS. I DO NOT HAVE ON STAR NOR SIRRUS ACTIVATED SO IT ISN'T LIKE SOMEONE COULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING REMOTELY.
