The car constantly has the same error stating that the ac is off due to high engine temps. Even when first started in the mornings. Last week i was driving and the car showed an error stating that the stablitrak needed serviced. It then jumped lanes and left the road. I lost steering capability as well and my screen for the radio and such keep blacking out and rebooting over and over.

Almost all makes and models of my vehicle year are part of a recall for the transmission control module, but not mines. Transmission control module went out in my vehicle and all though alldata shows that all makes and models of my vehicle year should be covered under recall, gmc buick is telling me mines doesnt qualify! Transmission control modules never go out!! No machanic i can find has seen any go out outside recall, only mines! I do believe my car should be included in this recall. I will pay gmc 2700 to repair something that should have been recalled and thats so unfair. I will continue to report and complain until justice is done and my money is returned to me. Theres no good reason or explanation given by gmc as to why my car should not be included in the recal along with all cars of its make, model, and year. Please investigate why it isnt!!

RIGHT SIDE PASSENGER BLIND SPOT DETECTION DOES NOT WORK AND "SERVICE SIDE DETECTION SYSTEM" ERROR MESSAGE NOW APPEARS ON DASHBOARD. UPON REVIEW THIS APPEARS TO BE THE SAME ISSUE THAT AFFECTS THE CHEVY CRUZE OF SAME YEAR FOR WHICH CAMPAIGN #N172097060 WAS ISSUED IN APRIL 2019. THE SENSOR MODULE SEEMS TO HAVE FAILED DUE TO POOR DESIGN THAT ALLOWS WATER TO GET IN EASILY. (THE Verano IS VIRTUALLY THE SAME CAR).

It all started with the side detection system. Told me to have it serviced, as i was on the high way the electrical stated going crazy. Gauges going back and fourth constantly, radio turned off, fans turned off, and blind spots kept blinking. The mechanic found a corrosion issue. They were able to unplug it but it also made it so my rear brake light on the right would not work (which is illegal). It would cost me over $1,000 to fix this issue since the corrosion isn't covered by the warranty. This vehicle was made with a faulty item going out of the factory that way. I am appalled in gm for letting a vehicle go out on the street this way.

Service side detection light came on, blind spot warning lights malfunction even when system is turned off. From other reports this is due to a design flaw of the sensor that allows it to corrode quickly/easily. Please issue a recall, many have had this issue.

Blind spot detection sensors become corroded due to being exposed to the environment. This is a faulty design and an expensive repair. Gm refuses to acknowledge the problem even though the system can fail at anytime without warning and cause an accident. When the sensors become corroded, they could also cause other problems with the electrical systems in the vehicle, though this has not happened to me yet. I've two[2] sensors fail while the car was under warranty, and now the 3rd one have failed, while the car is out of warranty. Big dollar fix the buick is cleaning up on.

That were installed on originally... On the continental website, there are customer complaints about these tires wearing out too fast and bubbling up on sides of tires. I am experiencing both of these issues. Was told by service, that i need to pay $1100. 00 dollars. I asked to speak to service manager, now i need to pay $500. 00 for tires, and get the same tires... So i get to go through this again??? What good is a warranty, and why is it not on the sticker and is not discussed during the purchase of said new vehicle! Spoke to hyndai and kia. They have bumper to bumper coverage. And no hidden surprises. Guess what kind of car will be in my driveway?

Upon starting the car we have no working guages. The temperature and gas level don't work. And the following error messages show up on the dash. Service air bag, tire monitoring system, front camera, parking assist, side detection system, and theft deterrent system. The car it basically undriveable. The blinkers do not work, heated seats (though that is minor) radio stops working. We don't know what the temperature of the engine is, how much fuel we have and how fast we are going. There is only 68,800 miles on it. When i call the dealership (they're the only ones with the technology to look at this and troubleshoot) they tell me it's a few hundred dollars just to run diagnostics. This is ridiculous that the car is this unsafe to drive but i have to pay to diagnose it. Then i find out just to replace the side detection system will cost me like $700. I can't imagine what it would take to fix this bigger issue. I'm forced to pay to have diagnostics run at this point because i can't have my wife and daughter driving around in this vehicle when it's this unsafe. I also have a video i can upload if needed. But for now i took screenshots of the video and will upload them. What can be done on stuff like this? I appreciate your time, jason

CHEVY CRUZE SERVICE SIDE DETECTION MODULE WAS RECALLED. Buick Verano USES THE SAME PART. MY BUICK SHOWED SERVICE SIDE DETECTION. THE DESIGN ALLOWS WATER AND SALT TO INTERFERE WITH THE PERFORMANCE. IT SHUT DOWN MY CAR. ENABLED MY ANTILOCK THEFT SYSTEM AND ALL VOLTAGE SYSTEMS SHUT DOWN. THE CAR PROCEEDED TO DRIVE ERRATICALLY. I WAS ADVISED ONLINE BY A BUICK MECHANIC TO UNPLUG THE DEVICE. MY CAR IS DRIVABLE AGAIN. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE. I PAID EXTRA FOR THE BLIND SPOT DETECTOR. EVEN IF I REPLACE IT THE DESIGN WILL ALLOW IT TO HAPPEN AGAIN. IT IS NOT PROTECTED WHERE IT IS LOCATED AND IT SENDS VOLTAGE ERROR CODES OFF(ALL VOLTAGE CODES) SERVICE AIRBAGS, SERVICE EVERYTHING. I HAVE PICTURES AS PROOF. PROOF OF THE CONVERSATION ADVISING ME TO DISCONNECT IT AND A READ OUT FROM A LOCAL GM DEALER SHOWING EVERY VOLTAGE CODE FAILURE.
