Liftgate opens when the remote is put in pocket or purse. Should need pushed more than once or recessed. I have written to Buick with no response more than once. Also the o/s temp does not update until you reach 50 mph. Living in the city, this is not satisfactory. These simple complaints and no response are my big problems with Buick. Thank you 2 Replies - Latest reply on 12/12/2012Add reply
Not only were the windows cheaply made for this particular year/model Buick, which windows either suddenly stop working or fall into the door never to be seen again, the automatic transmission for whatever reason goes unexpectedly as well. What a lemon this car is. I can't even give it away. And fixing the windows doesn't guarantee they won't break again. It costs $400-500 per window!

Buick never issued a recall for this because there wasn't a safety issue - no one has been killed yet. And no class action lawsuit was ever started. Why? How do you start one?
My 2002 Buick Has Fallen Apart

My 2012 Buick La Crosse came with tires that could not handle NYC potholes at all. In the first 6 months we had to replace 3 tires due to hitting a pothole at about 25 mph. They are supposed to be 'extra special' tires. Special defectives?

If you live in NYC or anywhere else where the streets have potholes, avoid the problem by choosing a different car.
I just replaced the 4th window regulator in my 2002 Lesabre. To say that the part was poorly made is a understatement. My wife has a 2001, and we have replaced 2 reg, and have one window locked in the up position. I had a 1996 and replaced 1 or 2 reg, on it.

I bought Buick because of reliability, but the windows are not.
I have loved my Buick for all the time we have had it until last year. The first thing to go was the compass but We figured out how to fix that. Now My speedometer gets stuck and I don't know how fast ... read full review5 Replies - Latest reply on 03/31/2011
We have a 2003 Buick Century 4 dr. with 37,000 miles! We never have put the rear windows down. And 1 yr. ago, the right rear window regulator went out, the window was down, but we didn't put it down! No recalls, so it cost us $212.00!

This week, the left rear window regulator went out, costing $323.00! Buick said they know the manufacturer was having some issues with these! - SOME! We've owned Chevy, Ford, Toyota's, and NEVER, NEVER, replaced window regulators!
I hope someone starts a class action suit against the manufacturer & Buick, for continuing to use them!
I would join in a class action. I have a 2001 Lasabre and have replaced both windows on the passenger side at a cost of $300.00 each. Definitely a manufacturing defect/ 5 Replies - Latest reply on 06/19/2009Add reply
GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA -- Last year we had to replace the window regulator behind the driver, this is on 2001 Buick LaSaber.
This was in February and colder than you know what. Then in the fall the one on passenger side back went out. I have spoken with several other Buick owners in our church and the same thing has happened to them. This is no easy task to deal with... we have to carry the car in leave it several days (usually 2-3 days)We are without the use of the car. The cost is usually in range of $500.00 plus dollars we are on fixed income and every dollar we can come by is really needed, and we do not need to be spending it on something totally unnecessary, if had been engineered properly to begin with. Tonight the window regulator on the passenger side went out.
This should be a recall item to be fixed at the expense of General Motors.
Yesterday I had my fourth window regulator replaced. I now have almost $2000 invested in new window regulators for my 2000 Buick Regal. I cannot get any assistance from Buick regarding my issues.

I have owned many cars and this is the first car that has had this problem. This must be due to poor design and they should be recalled.
I have a 2000 LeSabre....the FR window regulator broke last winter, the RL went out two days ago. This seems to be an ongoing problem. Does anyone have instructions about repairing this? It cost me $400 to have the 1st one repaired. Last Buick for me!! 1 Replies - Latest reply on 09/07/2008Add reply
On 3/8 an undercarriage accident required a new oil pan for a 2004 LeSabre with 1200 miles on it. This is for the 3800 Series II engine which is produced by the the thousands. We were give a date of mid April. Because this is not a warranty problem, GM does not think this is unreasonable enough to justify a loaner. This will be my last American built car. 6 Replies - Latest reply on 03/30/2004Add reply
