- Buick Ownership
My wife went to the store with our Buick with 49,000 miles on it and called and said it would not start, I went over there thinking maybe it was the remote but every time I tied to start it the alarm went off, so I had it towed to the dealer where it was purchased! The next morning an advisor calls me and says the side object detection modules shorted out and they needed to replace 2 modules and a harness to the tune of $1800 dollars!! What choice did I have? I said yes and drove by 2 hours later and the car was already done! I feel ripped off, he said it was caused by salt or water. The car has been garaged all of its short life. I looked up these modules on a parts site and they were just over $100, I got charged $368 apiece. I've had at least 6 Buicks in my life but this is the last one, I'm going to start looking next week for a new ride!
