2016 Buick REGAL
  • Date of Incident: Dec-13, 2021
  • Date complaint filed: May-19, 2024
  • Failed components: EXTERIOR LIGHTING

I purchased the 2016 buick regal used in 2021 with 40,000 miles. , it now has close to 70,000 miles. It’s still in well cared for mint condition, except for the driver side headlight. Condensation appeared and has been getting worse, dealership says the only option is buying another complete headlight assembly for $1200. 00. The led part of that headlight has stopped working. , it’s inevitable that the bulbs themselves with fail also. This is a safety issue. It’s absurdly cost prohibitive for me and most everybody else to spend that kind of money to fix a headlight.. , and $1200. 00 is the cost of the part alone, we’d be adding labor to that. This is a manufacturer defect that so many people are suffering with. They say we’re getting no relief from this because not enough people have filed complaints to the nhtsa. Gm should be compelled to provide this part to us at a much more reasonable price. I’m just a poor widower dad with a daughter in college. Thank you.

2015 Buick REGAL
  • Date of Incident: Apr-30, 2024
  • Date complaint filed: May-04, 2024
  • Failed components: SERVICE BRAKES

After starting my vehicle with foot on the brake and putting the vehicle in gear it will move forward and occasionally roll for 4 or 5 feet before the brake engages. This is extremely dangerous as i'm pulling out of a parking space and merging with ongoing traffic! This has been going on for approximately three weeks. The vehicle literally has no brakes for four or five feet despite the fact that my foot being pressed all the way down on the brake pedal!! Last week i came very close to a major accident when i couldn't stop for an on oncoming car. Thank goodness the operator of the other vehicle stopped in time to avoid a serious accident! I immediately took the car to a local garage to have my brakes checked. They found no issues. I then took it to the buick dealer,bical, and they found a serious issue. The brake vacuum pump had frozen and had actually disintegrated and no longer was functional. Parts from the pump entered the valve shaft area also. The end result was a $3,000 repair bill. The important issue here is the driver safety on the road. Although this was only occasional and at low speeds left unattended would lead to a total brake failure with major consequences and major fatalities!! God only know how many major accidents occurred with major consequences without anyone knowing the true source of the accident details. I have read online that 1996-1997 cadillacs also have this same issue!! This is a very poor design and a major safety issue. After all there is no such thing as a minor brake issue!!! I'm avail to discuss this issue issue at your convenience. I can be reached on [xxx] [xxx] cell. Repair bill available. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6)

Hello, i am the original owner of my 2019 buick regal sportback which shows a "shift to park message when i attempt to shut off the car and the car shifter is in the park position. I am unable to turn off lights, radio, or accessories. This condition runs down the battery and prevents me from starting the car as the shifter stays locked in position unless the car is running. This should be covered under the gm drivetrain warranty. Please help.
