There is no single or easy answer. The Lemon Law requires both a substantial defect and either that the vehicle is not repaired after multiple attempts to get it fixed or it has been at the dealership for many days cumulatively.
Substantial defects impair the vehicle’s “use, value, and/or safety.”
- A defect that affects a vehicle’s use is one that prevents you from driving the vehicle as it was intended to be driven.
- A vehicle’s value is diminished when the defect means the vehicle won’t sell for the price it normally would bring – if the defect weren’t there.
- Safety defects are defects that put the driver, passengers, and other drivers in danger.
The problem does not have to be safety related to qualify. If your Buick has been ‘in the shop’ repeatedly and still has the same issue, it may be a lemon.
If a defect involves a safety issue, such as faulty airbags, it may only require two repair attempts. If your Buick has been in ‘the shop’ for more than thirty days, cumulative, regardless of the defect(s), it may also qualify as a lemon.
Some examples of problems in a Buick vehicle that could be considered substantial are problems involving:
- Electrical systems
- Air conditioning/heating systems
- Back up cameras
- Water leaks
It is important to remember that your Buick does not have to be brand new or have incredibly low mileage to be protected.
Even if your Buick has over 50,000 miles on it, if you took it in for repair while it was still under warranty it could still potentially be considered a lemon.
Buick is a division of General Motors and is based in Detroit. Buicks have been one of America’s greatest luxury vehicle brands since the first models were built in 1903.
Buick currently serves North America as well as China (which is their primary market). As of the 2021 model year, Buick is no longer offering traditional cars, the brand is hedging its bets entirely on crossovers. Their current models are the Encore, Envision, and Enclave though they offer several versions of each.
Common Buick Vehicle Defects
Buick is one of the oldest car makers in the world. That, of course, does not mean they produce vehicles without defects. Every car manufacturer does. Manufacturing mistakes, a problem with a supplier’s product, design issues, a robot off by millimeters, a plant-wide problem, all can make a Buick a lemon.
Some of the common defects that people have complained about regarding Buicks include:
- Transmission problems
- Airbag issues
- Fuel tank overflow
- HVAC system issues
- Fuel gauge issues
- Insufficient power
- Gasket leaks
- Loud clunking noises from the engines
Buicks are known to have good safety ratings and their vehicles have some impressive safety features, but they have still had to issue numerous recalls over the years for safety-related as well as other reasons.
Buick’s most recent recall was in November 2020 for a blocked fuel pump nozzle that could stall the Encore.
Other recent recalls Buick has issued include:
- Takata airbag inflators that can explode
- Windshield wiper motors that overheat, causing a fire
- Inaccurate fuel gauge readings
- Transmission shift cable adjuster that poses a rollaway risk
- Wiring harness problem that could cause the non-deployment of the side airbags
- Possible reduced break performance
