Buick Recall History


Buick brand sedans including the LaCrosse and the popular-selling Enclave and Encore SUVs have been part of major recall campaigns by GM in the past few years.
In 2014, GM recalled more than 1.1 million midsize SUVs including 2008-13 Enclave for issues with side airbag wiring harnesses that could lead airbags and seat belt pretensioners from deploying in a crash. The fix is replacing parts. GM said the recall completion rate for the total vehicle population as of June 2018 is 94.6 percent.

That same year, the automaker recalled 3.14 million vehicles for an unintended key rotation issue which could move the ignition switch from the “run” position, causing the engine to turn off and airbags not to deploy in a crash. Within that group of vehicles is 2005-09 LaCrosse sedans and 2006-11 Buick Lucerne large cars. The fix, which includes installing two key rings and an insert in a key slot, has had a 74.9 percent completion rate as of June 2018, GM says.

A year later, GM called back 429,000-plus vehicles for faulty headlamp driver modules, which can cause the headlamps and daytime running lights to fail to illuminate. Within that recall are 2006-09 LaCrosse cars and 2006-07 Buick Rainier SUVs.

GM said the fix is replacing parts and the overall recall completion rate is 56.7 percent as of June 2018.

In 2016, General Motors also recalled 3.64 million vehicles for faulty airbag software that can prevent airbags from deploying in a crash. The defect was tied to at least one death and three injuries. Some vehicles in that recall were Buicks including 2014-17 Encore subcompact SUVs and 2014-16 LaCrosse models. The fix for most vehicles is a software reflash. GM said the recall completion rate is 89.9 percent as of June 2018 for the total vehicle population.

“No matter the recall completion rate, individual vehicles may still have open recalls requiring repairs,” GM said in a statement. “Shoppers should check the Vehicle Information (Identification) Numbers (VIN) for the specific vehicles they are considering on the NHTSA Recall website to determine if they require recall repairs and have any recall repairs done immediately. Dealers will repair recall at no cost to the owner.”
