Failure Date: 06/10/2015

Bought the vehicle on 2/28/2015 from rick hendrick Buick GMC in duluth GA. Around the beginning of June 2015 my air vent on the drive side was coming out of the dashboard. I took my vehicle to the dealer on 06/10/2015. They said they had to order a new one. I took the car back to the dealer on 6/13/2015 to get the vent replaced. Since then there has been a very strong ordor(smell) coming from the vents. It smells like a strong finger nail polish. Sometimes the smell gets way to strong and I have to roll the windows down. The smell happens at random times, at different places, and it only lasts for about 20 seconds each time it happens. Sometimes it happens multiple times while driving to work or long distances. I took my car to the dealer on 8/8/2015 and they looked under the car, cabin filter and for leaks. They took the vehicle for a 10 minute max test drive and could not duplicate the smell. I called the gm Buick executive office at 866-636-2273 on 8/11/2015 at 5:44pm and filed a complaint about the smell. They stated I would get a call from the customer service manager at the dealer within 2 business days. On 8/19/2015 at 5:31pm and was told I had to speak with my case worker, was transferred to a voice mail, and left a voice mail. I still to this date have not received a phone call. Also the defroster is not working on my car. I have turned it up to 78 degrees on full blast and had to keep it on during my entire trip to work just to keep the frost from forming on my windshield and blocking my view, which could cause me to crash. It happens on a regular basis either in the morning or at night. All my cars I have owned have never had this issue; where I have to keep the defroster running during an entire 30 minute drive.

Failure Date: 04/14/2014

From the purchase of our 2013 Buick Regal in the spring of 2014 (vehicle was a new leftover), we experienced condensation building on the outside (bottom portion) of the windshield. We would use the defroster but that did not clear the build up. We turned off the recirculation and tried all settings to no satisfaction. Normally on clear and less humid days there was no condensation build up. However when the day was humid and a higher dew point, the build up would present itself. We normally used the windshield wipers to clear the window for visibility, but at times the entire windshield will fog up quickly and almost completely. This presents a very dangerous situation in traffic being that we have found it difficult to deal with the problem while driving (being that at times it covers the windshield quickly). Throughout the winter months of 2014 through 2015, we seldom drove this vehicle and used our trailblazer for driving. Thus we did not experience too much of a problem during that time. However this year we will be relying on the 2013 Buick Regal throughout the winter and are very concerned with the condensation buildup problem. As stated there are times when the windshield quickly fogs up.

Failure Date: 08/01/2009

It was pouring down rain yesterday. I was driving to work, with my windshield wipers on as usual. Out of nowhere, my left windshield wiper stop working and I lost visual of the road. It was so dangerous, almost had an accident. I couldn't go to work because of the problem. I stop my car nearby until it stop raining. My safety was at risk.
