  1. 2011 Lacrosse Armrest lightbulb

    I need to replace a burnt out bulb in my armrest. I pulled out the light connector and it's a silver metal box around the light reflecting unit. I was able to get the item open and pulled out the bulb. It says 12V 1.5W. I can't find anything like this at AutoZone. I did check and I have 12V...
  2. Tire rotation and tire sensors

    I think this is going to apply to my LaCrosse as well as the GMC Acadia, the vehicle that brought this to my attention. My Acadia is telling me the right front tire is low on pressure. I've checked and it's at 35 psi and I didn't see any nails. Took it to the dealer for a suspected failure of...
  3. 2011 hard shifting

    Has anyone else experienced this? My 2011 is shifting hard when I get on the gas and then off quickly like you would in stop and go traffic or in the mall where you stop and start over and over. I'm not flooring it but I step on the gas and then take my foot off and the car kind of lurches...
  4. Do GM employees get the best pricing?

    My father worked for General Motors for his entire career. Back when the MSRP was marked way up, the GM Employee discount was pretty significant. Now, and this post 9/11, it seems like the GM Employee discount is barely anything. As an example, a Regal CXL RL3 has an MSRP of $28065 and it...
  5. Navigation DVD is now $40 off

    I received an email offer today from GM for Fathers Day that has the 2011 nav DVD $40 off. The new cost is $159.99 if you want to buy one. I have no idea if this is a worthwhile update or not. I don't know what has changed and to be honest, I'm unsure if that's the same disc I already have...
  6. Nav system enhancement?

    When I took my 2011 LaCrosse into the dealership this week for them to update the nav/radio software, they confirmed it needed updated. The invoice said "8942 Found radio nav system software causing multiple issues 109R0759.4 programmed radio with updated system check after programming. All ok...
  7. Is this a memory seat module issue?

    In a previous post, http://www.buickforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=20485, I talked about how bad my service experience with my dealership was. To start this post, I need to say I was wrong on something. The tray, that sits under the arm wrest, was actually not broken like I thought. If...
  8. Being poked by the key and keyfob

    Everyone of you probably experience this at some point in your day. Regardless of the keyfob being in your pocket or purse, at some point in time, that big button gets pushed and the key pops out. It's a pain in my leg and my pocket every time it happens. If they would shave that button down...
  9. Nav and radio hard drive

    I read a post asking if you could switch out the hard drive for a solid state drive. It got me thinking, the hard drive must be like the ones you buy at best buy or anyother computer store. This should mean they have spinning plates. Has anyone hit a bump hard enough to cause the hard drive to...
  10. Worst Buick (or any vehicle) service I've ever experienced

    Took my 2011 CSX in for a number of items that I've talked about on here before. Laura, the Buick rep, who monitors the forum has helped me by setting me up with Buick (GM) customer service and they are following the service on the car. It's a little long but worth the read. They had the car...
  11. Radio restart and audio issue

    Today I had a completely new experience. I ripped a couple of songs and an audio book. Put them all on a USB stick and plugged them into the CSX. It started playing them without any problem and started playing, let's call it track 1, immediately. I told the radio to add them all to the...
  12. OnStar contest and service

    This afternoon, on the ride home, I hit the onstar button to register for the push on contest. I did it from my wife's Acadia as that's what I was driving at the time. Her onstar service has been expired for a number of months now. The woman who answered was super friendly and said yes, we...
  13. Thoughts on XM radio

    I posted asking for people's opinions on OnStar and thought that this should be a separate post. Both my Acadia and LaCrosse have XM radio in them. My wife really enjoys the XM in the Acadia and at first she didn't think she would want to keep it, especially for a monthly charge. We added it...
  14. What's your opinion on OnStar?

    Both of my vehicles have Onstar. The acadia came with a 1 year package and the 2011 LaCrosse came with 6 months. I think the service is great from a safety standpoint but at roughly $30 per month it's a full cell phone bill. The acadia does not have navigation built in but Onstar was handy...
  15. Mud flaps on the 2010/2011 LaCrosse

    Does anyone have mud flaps on their LaCrosse and if so do they cut down on the amount of dirt/mud on the rear quarter panel? Did you have the dealership install them or did you purchase them and do the installation yourself? I'm interested in them to cut down on dirt and dings in the paint. I...
