The anti-lock brake light goes on and off, and the system seems to never work when needed.
Low tire light keeps coming on, although tires are okay.
Intake manifold gasket now has started leaking coolant on the thermostat side (around 110,000 miles).
Seal on passenger rear door came apart (recently).
Drivers seat needs to be replaced. The cushion has no cushion left in it.
Rear defrost doesn't work.
Key fob has been replaced twice; $50 each time.
Transmission has been shifting hard between gears.
Car likes to roll back on stops at the top of hills. After releasing the brake, it would roll all the way down if I let it. Transmission will be shot shortly.
This car has been nothing but trouble. I wasn't there when my mom and step-dad checked it out. I wish I were, and could have saved them a lot of trouble. I'm a do-it-yourself mechanic and when I first heard the car run, I knew it was going to be trouble; a little bit of hesitation from the engine and whining from a pulley bearing. Not a good start, and it went downhill from there.
Lots of room if you need it. My mom drives this thing, and she's just a little lady and needs pillows to sit on, since the seat is pretty much a sinkhole now.
Windshield wiper on passenger side likes to make noise when not in use. Wiper sits funny on the plastic support at the bottom of the windshield and likes to rock back and forth. It does its job, but it's annoying.
Lots of road noise leaks into the cabin, especially from windshield and doors. Car has a lot of squeaks and rattles.
Heat and air conditioning still work, so that's a plus. Thank goodness for that... knock on wood. I'd hate to drive this car; angry and uncomfortable at the same time.
Usually several warning lights are on at a time: anti-lock, low tire, low coolant.
I would NOT recommend buying a late model Buick or GM vehicle. My friend's 2005 Impala has been nothing but trouble. It has less than 60,000 miles on it and already has transmission problems. Make sure to read as many reviews as possible before any decision.
Nothing against GM, but I drive a 1995 Buick Century Custom 3100 that was previously owned by an older couple. I have put 100,000 miles on it since then and now have 200,000 miles on it, with no major problems. Regular maintenance can go a long way; it still looks good and clean and drives great. After all these bad experiences I've heard and dealt with lately of GM products, I feel that my next vehicle is going to be foreign.
