When the car was purchased there were no dashpad flaws. Car was and still is garage kept. The dashpad has been lifting across the entire width of the pad from front to rear and exposing the structure underneath. This includes the passenger side airbag area which the dash pad is completly lifted and not sure if airbag is exposed.

The dashboard on our Buick Lesabre custom is separating from the windshield causing a safety hazard that could expose the air bag on the passenger side. It is also separating from the ac vents. It is also causing a hazard for the driver's vision.

Dashboard is buckled all the way across. Keeps getting worse and I'm afraid the airbag on the passenger side will deploy causing me to have an accident. I am afraid to drive it but it is my only means of transportation. I would appreciate any help with this matter. Buick really should consider a recall for this before someone gets hurt or worse yet killed. Thanks

I am on my 6th window assembly replacement. Why would they want to keep putting the same defective parts back into your car? the last one I had to pay for at $400. The other 4 were under warranty, the first at 17,000. Now, I am going to not have this one repaired as I cannot afford it. Guess when it's 125 degrees in my car in the summer I'll just have to open all the doors to cool it off! can't put the windows down!

Cup holders will hold nothing. An attempt to put a car designed cup holder of hot coffee could result in severe injuries. There is nothing that will fit in the drink holder---not a can, not a cup, not a bottle!!
