About Buick Allure
Buick Allure is a large or a mid-size luxury car manufactured and marketed by the American automobile manufacturer General Motors' upscale brand Buick since September 7, 2004 exclusively for the Canadian market. The first Buick Allure was introduced in the 2005 model year to replace the Buick LeSabre, Park Avenue and Lucerne slotting above the Buick Regal as Buick's flagship vehicle. It is also called LaCrosse but due to this word is vulgar, Canadian version was sold as Allure. Up to now, it has been produced for three generations.
The second-generation Buick Allure was produced from June 15, 2009 to 2016 and debuted officially at the 2009 North American International Auto Show. It was redesigned from the ground-up and moved the nameplate notably upmarket, becoming Buick's flagship large premium sedan. Available in base CX, mid-level CXL and top-of-the-line CXS trim levels, Buick Allure was powered by 3.0 L 255 hp V6, 3.6 L 280 hp V6 and 2.4 L 182 hp inline 4-cylinder engine, and engines sent power through 6-speed automatic transmission to front wheels or all wheels. The third-generation Buick Allure debuted at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show as a 2017 model. It comes with four trim levels: base, Leather, Premium 1 and Premium 2. Base engine consists of a mild-hybrid setup dubbed "eAssit" that pairs a 2.4 L I4 engine producing 182 horsepower. A 3.6 L V6 with 303 hp is also available. But the 8-speed automatic transmission is the only choice.
Buick Allure Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
Boasting large size, simple controls, modern, stylish and impressive features, Buick Allure is definitely a worth consideration when choosing your vehicle. And once you do choose Allure, you have to be prepared for these common problems in advance:
Frist, engine light comes on. This definitely could be seen as the worst issue that a vehicle including Buick Allure could meet. And this issue is often caused by failing engine parts and cooling system failure according to Buick Allure owners. Some said after a while of driving, the engine would shake, misfire or be hesitant in acceleration and even squealing noises would come from it. Meanwhile, the A/C system gets influenced and impaired, which may also be attributed to the broken A/C compressor and A/C expansion valve. But the leaking coolant, overheating and reduced engine performance are definitely resulted from defective Allure body control module, drive belt and radiator cap.
Second, transmission and suspension failures. Both issues may be not as serious as above one, but they still could get people including drivers, occupants, and pedestrians into dangers. Transmission failure in Buick Allure often manifests as indicator not matching the gears, or vehicle starting in another gear or not going into gear at all, which poses potential risk of without knowing what gears you are really in. The Allure shift cable is often the culprit. As for suspension failure, it often causes rattling or squeaking noises from underneath the vehicle, which results in uneven tire wear and tilting vehicle, and sluggish response in vehicle handling. You really should pay more attention to the Allure sway bar kit and sway bar bushing.
Aside from above mentioned issues, performing routine maintenance on some vulnerable and important auto parts in Buick Allure is same critical. Allure wheel cover is used to stop the accumulation of dirt, dust or others on the wheels so that wheels could move forward smoothly; seat belt is responsible for protect occupants from being hurt by impact during sudden movement; windshield wiper or wiper blade and wiper arm could help offer excellent driving visibility under adverse weather conditions.
