Recall Alert: 2012 Buick LaCrosse

2012-Buick-LaCrosse

GM is recalling 4,077 2012 Buick LaCrosse sedans because the electronic stability system may not be properly calibrated, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were built between June 9 and July 2, the Stabilitrak system may not detect a sensor malfunction. As a result, the warning light indicating the system is not operating would not illuminate. You can check your car's assembly date on a label affixed to the driver-side doorjamb.

A malfunctioning sensor could cause the electronic stability system to falsely activate and cause sudden changes in vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealers will reprogram the electronic brake control module for free. Owners can call Buick at 866-608-8080 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
