Drives great! Not the best design though.

I love the way that the vehicle drives, it is very smooth and accelerates quickly and I feel safe in the car. However, I feel like it has too many blind spots. The design of the vehicle takes away visibility and I don't particularly enjoy that. I also cannot drive the car if I have my hair up in a bun because the roof is a bit low.

- Christina S

The most interesting detail to my one that I can't get enough of is the camera that helps you park. I mean how do they come up with this stuff.

I absolutely love my car it rides really smooth. I have been in other cars and you can feel every bump in the road. I like the rear facing camera and park assistance. The stereo and electronic features are excellent. My car is very spacious as well passengers can sit in comfort. There really is nothing I dislike about my car.

- Michael S

Good quality, fast, good running, and it's in good condition.

Runs good, it's good on gas, it drives smooth, it's a good car, it's easy to pay off, great insurance. It's beautiful, I keep it clean and neat, I drive it a lot, it's an amazing car to drive, it's the best thing in the world, I love it, I wouldn't sell it or trade it to anyone, it's valuable to me.

- Kenyon S

Air Bags, Seat Belts Jul 10, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Jul 10, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V437000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2016 Buick Lacrosse and Chevrolet Spark EV, Caprice PPV and SS vehicles, 2014-2017 Buick Encore and Chevrolet Corvette, Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles, 2015-2016 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Tahoe, Trax, Suburban and Silverado 2500 and 3500 and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles, and 2015-2017 GMC Sierra HD 2500 and 3500 vehicles. While being previously remedied for recall 16V-651, the affected vehicles may not have received the complete software update necessary to remedy the recall condition. Without the update, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
A failure of the front air bags or seat belt pretensioners to deploy in the event of a crash necessitating deployment increases the risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the SDM software. Vehicles that have had a previous air bag deployment will have the SDM replaced. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 17287.

In the affected vehicles, certain driving conditions may cause the air bag sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) software to activate a diagnostic test. During this test, deployment of the frontal air bags and the seat belt pretensioners would not occur in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
A failure of the front air bags or seat belt pretensioners to deploy in the event of a crash necessitating deployment increases the risk of injury to the driver and front passenger.
Remedy:

Air Bags Oct 16, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 16, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V666000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2015 Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox, Malibu, and GMC Terrain vehicles. The affected vehicles have front seat-mounted side impact air bags whose inflator may rupture upon its deployment.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of one or both of the side impact air bags, the air bag's inflator may rupture and the air bag may not properly inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. Additionally, if the air bag does not properly inflate, the driver or passenger is at an increased risk of injury.
Remedy:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the side impact air bag modules, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 19, 2015. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 01320.
