Buick LaCrosse Recalled to Fix Rear Suspension Problems

General Motors is recalling more than 11,200 model year 2017 Buick LaCrosse cars that can go out of control because of rear suspension toe links.

GM Recalls Buick Sedan Due to Power Steering Defect

General Motors is recalling certain units of the 2016 Buick Cascada over an issue that could cause the vehicles to not comply to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

The defect: the affected vehicles may have had the original convertible roof control module (CRCM) replaced with an incorrect CRCM, that allows the windows to close automatically when the roof is closed and can allow the windows to be closed remotely using the key fob. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, “Power-Operated Window Systems.”…
