Buick isn’t one of the most popular auto brands, but there’s still car recalls taking place for numerous problems. The General Motors owned brand is widely described as being above Chevrolet, but below Cadillac for those that want North American entry-level luxury.


Recent Buick USA car recalls include ignition problems, brake mix-ups, airbag issues, fire risks, door electronics, and more. Minor issues might be fixed locally on occasion that never make it to a mainstream recall for GM or Buick, although some problems seen in forums and sites like Car Recalls later receive mainstream attention.

It can take a while for some faults to be understood at the level of fault they are, although things have improved with many more recalls in recent years. This in itself isn’t the answer, so there’s hope these issues will be fixed within the production process as we go forward.

If you have any problems with Buick vehicles, then we’d love to hear about the issue to see if others can relate below. Feel free to leave your status updates and communicate with other auto owners reporting problems. If you need to check a car recall by VIN, or reach official customer service then use the information provided to the right.

  • Jed

    I managed to take my 2012 GMC Sierra pickup to my local Buick dealer to get its ignition lock actuator replaced, which did save me hassle.

  • Angela

    I have a 2005 Buick Lacrosse and its headlights recently stopped working, but I am uncertain if it is included in the general Motors recall that started last month?

  • David

    Yes, you will find that model is included in the recall, so therefore contact your local dealer or the NHTSA for more details

  • Ricky

    GM has stopped the sale of the 2015 Buick
    Enclave in light of the current Goodyear recall.

  • Donny

    My Buick Bonneville finally succumbed to the power window failure so many of you have already suffered from.

  • Kevin

    I have a 2002 Buick LeSabre and for some reason it is very rough at idle. I first assumed it was a vacuum leak, but all hoses are ok. Could it be a multi cylinder error?

  • James

    My 2009 Buick Enclave has just started to misfire, and as such the check engine light has now come on. Took it to Buick and found no issue, yet there is still a misfire, what on earth could be the cause?

  • Rik

    For some reason I keep getting the p0306 code on my 96 Buick Regal, and even after the dealer replaced my Ignition Control Module, the dreaded code is back once again.

  • Dale

    I know it’s getting on a bit now, but my 1997 Buick Regal has developed a few electrical problems. The A/C fan, cooling fan and cruise control no longer work.

  • Kelly

    Why does my 2001 Buick LeSabre keep blowing power window regulators?

  • Will

    Well, it finally happened, the dreaded Buick Enclave transmission problems has now affected mine vehicle. It’s the 2008 model and the transmission has gone on my, meaning I will have to foot the bill myself.

  • Ray

    The power windows on my 2001 Buick LeSabre have stopped working. I have checked the fuse, and it is fine, so what could be the cause?

  • Sandra

    My 2005 Buick Rendezvous has an overheating problem, and later realized that I was out of engine coolant. However, there is no fluid leak, so where could the coolant be going?

  • George

    I currently have an old 2003 Buick Century and it has developed a leak from its intake manifold gasket. I have heard from a few people that this is a common problem, but does anyone have a clue how expensive it will be?

  • Malcolm

    The change oil light on my 2006 Buick Rendezvous will not go off, even though I have had an oil service done.

  • Julie

    The service power steering light keeps coming on my 2013 Buick Encore. I took it back to the dealer where all fluids were checked and the entire system, yet no issue was found. However, they just reset the system and all is fine now, which does seem strange.

  • Danny

    The gas pedal on my Buick Lucerne keeps sticking, and have been unable to locate just what the issue is. I need to get it fixed soon, as almost had a n accident the other day while parked on a hill.

  • Jules

    The automatic gear changes in my 2004 Buick Park Avenue seem to be very hard and not smooth like they used to be. Would this be a simple fix, or does the transmission need to be replaced?

  • Mel

    There has been a sudden lose of power with my 2001 Buick Regal. I had started to run rough before the loss of power happened, and after having the vehicle analyzed to see what the issue was, a valve spring was broken. However, after a few weeks of things working fine, the issue has now returned.

  • Lisa

    The door chimes on my 2005 Buick Terrazzo will not stop ringing. This only happens for the automatic sliding door warning that it is open, when it is in fact shut. There are two different noises, one when my foot is on the throttle, and another when I brake. Is this a common issue, and if so is it something that can be easily fixed?

  • Jerry

    The cruise control in my 2004 Buick Park Avenue will not hold a constant speed. It often loses around 5 miles per hour. The dealer has taken a look and says there is nothing wrong, when clearly there is.

  • Jules

    I just cannot understand why the check engine light on my 2003 Buick LeSabre keeps coming on! I have contacted the garage, and they said it was the catalytic converter, which I find hard to believe because I have already changed it 3 times in 4 yours. The last one I got was a genuine part, and so should last longer than the 12 months I have had this one fitted to the car for. If it does turn out to be the cat one again, then why do they keep failing so quick?

  • Nile

    My 2005 Buick Century has started to make my journeys to work unbearable, as there is a horrible musty smell coming from the air vent on a warm day. This only happens when the blower is on cold. Before you ask, the filters have been changed, and upon someones advice used a special spray down the air vents, yet the horrible smell is still there. I now have a complex that the odor is staying on me and my colleagues can smell.

  • Jack

    There is a horrible grinding and rubbing sound from the wheels of my Buick Park Avenue, and you can really feel it through the steering wheel. The clearance from tires and wheel arches are fine, so I have no clue why there is this horrible sound.

  • Clarke

    Has there ever been a recall for the 2008 Buick Enclave and its power steering? Mine has failed on me, and a couple of my fired have also had the same issue. However, when you go on forums there are hundreds of people suffering the very same issue.

  • Earl

    I turn the key on my 2008 Buick Lucerne and the engine tries to turn over, and so I know the battery is fine, yet it will not start. This also means that the starter motor is fine because it tries to kick in. I have since looked over the car myself and found that the fuse box was corroded, which I have since learned is a common problem. The issue I now have is that because this is such a common problem General Motors is in short supply, and so I might have to get an aftermarket one. Question is, would you trust one?

  • Merv

    The automatic shifts on my automatic 2001 Buick LeSabre are very hard, and can often become very uncomfortable and annoying. I have been told that it could be due to the way GM has designed the solenoid seals, as they have worn out far too quick. Could this really be the reason and if s surely GM should offer some sort of recall?

  • James

    About a week ago I filled up the fuel tank on my 2010 Buick Enclave, and ever since I am now having trouble starting the car. I know this is just a coincidence, and so decided to change the fuel pump and injectors, bit the issue keeps happening, and so I am now at a loss.

  • Danny

    I’m starting to get very annoyed with my Buick Encore, because while it used to be a great car, it no longer is. This is because when the car has been used for around five hours in a day for stop and start journeys, the engine begins to idle rough. There is also a lack of acceleration, and the engine warming light and also traction control light comes on. I have since taken it back to Buick because the car is just 2 years old, yet they have been unable to recreate the same issue. What the hell can it be?

  • Toby

    Please make sure that you keep an eye on your battery, as the one in my 2008 Buick Lucerne leaked acid and ate a hole through the floor. Not only am i shocked this happen, but also the fact that installing it under the seat is a silly place to put it. This is just warning.

  • Roger

    How come the heated seats will no turn off on my 2004 Buick Regal? The dealer has yet to find the issue, and so I am now driving around in a car with the fuse removed, to make certain nothing bad happens.

  • Tom

    I started to nonie a strong smell of fuel coming from my 2002 Buick LeSabre and so lifted the hood to find out where it was coming from. I then noticed that gasoline was leaking fro the hot manifold, which did frighten me because it could have so easily have caught alight. I now need to know what has caused the leak, but first wanted to know if this was a common issue?

  • Johnson

    After I have filled the gas tank on my Buick Enclave it tends to take ages to star up. This only happens after I have filled up, all other times it is fine.

  • Jess

    The driver’s window on my Buick Century will go down on its own, and the only way to get it back up is to turn the ignition off and then on again – not very good if you are driving when raining.

  • Ross

    The info panel on my Buick Regal no longer works, although the odometer had stopped working ages ago, and the info panel has always been dim – could this all be related?

  • Diana

    Please help, as the fuse box for my Buick Lucerne has melted, and I do not know what I should do, or how it happened. I was just driving one day and could smell burning. I was lucky that I was able to pull over safely, because it was not long after that when the car died on me. I am not sure if I was just unlucky, or if this is a common issue with the 2009 model?

  • Guest

    07 Buick Rendezvous stopped at light then when I press the gas petal it sometimes shifts up and goes–is it the sensor that needs repair?

  • Megan

    So scary thing just happened that I’m not seeing recalls about: I was in the freoeway in my 2016 Buick Encore and the gas peddle stuck down as if someone was still stepping on it. Anyone else have thus problem?
