If your Buick LaCrosse has recurring problems that seemingly cannot be fixed, your vehicle may be considered a “lemon.”
Under the California Lemon Law, a lemon is a vehicle with recurring problems that, despite authorized repair facilities being given a reasonable number of repair attempts, cannot be remedied. These problems must negatively impact the use, safety or value of your vehicle.
Many owners and lessees of Buick LaCrosse vehicles report problems that do just that. Learn more about common problems that 2013–2019 Buick LaCrosse owners and lessees report in their vehicles. If one of these problems repeatedly appear in your Buick LaCrosse, you may need to talk to a lemon law attorney about your case.
If your Check Engine Light illuminates on the dashboard of your Buick LaCrosse, it may be time to investigate your vehicle for engine problems.
Owners and lessees of Buick LaCrosse vehicles have submitted complaints to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reporting several engine problems. Some drivers said that their vehicle idles rough and hesitates while accelerating. More troubling situations may include the vehicle failing to start, the vehicle shutting off while driving and the engine overheating.
If your vehicle is showing any of these problems, pay a visit to an authorized repair facility to have your vehicle inspected.
Steering problems in your Buick LaCrosse can make you feel like you’re losing control of your vehicle – a situation that would make nearly anyone feel unsafe. If your power steering warning indicator lights up, you may experience steering problems down the road.
Complaints submitted to NHTSA reveal that some Buick LaCrosse drivers have experienced steering problems such as a locked-up steering wheel, or a sudden loss of power steering. If the latter happens, drivers may have difficulty steering their vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.
Steering problems may result in a loss of control. However, brake defects can lead to an equally, if not more dangerous situation.
A driver may put their Buick LaCrosse on coasting mode, only to experience random braking. A driver may not understand why their vehicle suddenly braked, despite no apparent obstacles or risk of collision.
Another driver may experience brake failure in their Buick LaCrosse, putting them at grave risk of a collision.
Functional electrical systems are vital to the use of your Buick LaCrosse. If any part of these systems goes haywire, it can cause frightening malfunctions in your vehicle.
Buick LaCrosse vehicles come with an on/off switch that, according to some complaints submitted to NHTSA, may malfunction and drain the vehicles of power. Buick LaCrosse owners and lessees have also reported malfunctioning alarms, which are part of systems meant to protect your vehicle. In some cases, Buick Lacrosse vehicles may experience rapidly drained or dead batteries.
If problems such as these repeatedly appear in your Buick LaCrosse, you may have a lemon on your hands.
Safety System Problems
If your Airbag Warning Light illuminates on your dashboard, you should check on your safety systems.
Your seat belts and airbags are supposed to protect you in the event of a crash. Faults in these systems compromise your safety. Some drivers have reported to NHTSA that their seat belts may fail to latch, or, alternatively, fail to release – either of which can be dangerous to drivers and passengers. Not only that, airbags in some Buick LaCrosse vehicles may fail to deploy.
If these problems repeatedly appear in your Buick LaCrosse, it may be time to contact a lemon law attorney about your situation.
