GM Recall of Certain Model Year 2012 Buick Lacrosse Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—August 12, 2011.

Summary:  GM is recalling certain model year 2012 Buick Lacrosse passenger vehicles manufactured from June 9, 2011 through July 2, 2011 for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 125, “Electronic Stability Control Systems (ECS).”  The stabilitrak system has an incorrect calibration that may cause the system to not properly detect if a sensor were to malfunction, and the warning light indicating that the system is not operating would not illuminate, as required in the Safety Standard.

Consequence:  A malfunctioning sensor may cause the ESC to falsely activate, resulting in sudden changes in vehicle handling and deceleration, which may cause loss of control, and could result in a crash without warning.

Remedy:  GM Dealers will reprogram the electronic brake control module free of charge.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin during August 2011.  Owners may contact Buick at 866-608-8080.

Notes:  GM’s Safety Recall Number is 11222.  Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
