Sporty little convertible!

Love the cascada. She's a sporty little car with a convertible top. Has good get up and go and rides great. Took it in a 1500 mile trip and comfortable the whole trip. Would recommend to anyone!

The gas mileage is not as good as I thought it would be.

I like love that my car is sporty yet stylish. It is a convertible so more wind noise than expected. For a newer model car I would think it would be a little quieter.

The Cascada is a really great car to drive.

I love my car, I love to drive it in the summer with the roof off. My car is really fun to drive. I get a lot of attention and compliments.

Visibility Nov 21, 2016
Report Receipt Date:
Nov 21, 2016
NHTSA Campaign:
16V844000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Buick Cascada vehicles manufactured December 1, 2015, to February 24, 2016. The affected vehicles may have had the original convertible roof control module (CRCM) replaced with an incorrect CRCM, that allows the windows to close automatically when the roof is closed and can allow the windows to be closed remotely from distances beyond 11 meters using the key fob. As such, these vehicles no longer meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 118, "Power-Operated Window Systems."
Consequence:
If the windows close automatically or can be closed remotely in ways that do not meet all the requirements of FMVSS 118, the unexpected closure can increase the risk of injury to the passengers.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the CRCM with correct module, free of charge. The recall began on December 1, 2016. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300. GM's number for this recall is 16126.
