Purchased 2010 Buick Lucerne in Dec. 2009. Have the gear shift on steering column. When gear shift is in drive the total on star navigation system and 1/3 of radio cannot be seen. This is an accident waiting to happen. You have to take your eyes off the road and turn your body towards center of car to see the directions for navigation and also to see dials on radio. Wrote a letter to ceo of gm in Jan. 2010. At first, they said it was my stature that I could not see navigation nor radio. (am 4' 9") and that if I wanted to rectify this situation, I would have to pay $800 for a different radio. Since then, I went to the dealer and had the car test driven by the service manager. I have a work order confirming this. Results - noone can see the navigation system in the drive position. Called gm - was angry as they lied to me. They now admit that this is a problem but would not do anything until more complaints are registered (I feel accidents to happen). They are keeping an open file. This is wrong. I cannot use the system as I'll have an accident. Even the radio, I am reluctant to change stations until I am stopped because I cannot tell where stations are. Gm advertises the wonderful on star navigation system but I can't use it or I'll get into an accident. Have been contacting gm for 3 months and nothing is happening. Can you help?.

This is a report of a design flaw that might result in a safety issue. I recently took delivery of a 2008 Buick Lucerne cxl. I purchased the optional six-passenger version which means that the gearshift lever is mounted on the steering column instead of on a floor console, like most other cars. When the gearshift lever is in the "drive" position, the view of the radio display is obscured, causing me to move my head to look around the gearshift lever to view the display. As a result, my attention to the road is much more distracted than if I had an unobstructed view of the radio display. This could lead to an accident.

Bought the car "new" on 7/4/07. On 7/8/07 the transmission would not downshift into first gear. Took the car to a Buick dealer where they fixed a defective part. Drove the car home that night and the problem started again. Brought the car to another dealer and they diagnosed the same problem. The car is still in the shop today. I've owned the car for 11 days and it's been in the shop 8 days and counting.
