2011 Buick Regal recalled due to possible electrical short

By ,

The 2011 Buick Regal has been hit with a recall due to a possible electrical short. Exactly 3,344 units are affected in Canada.

On certain vehicles equipped with 8-way power adjustable front seats, the wiring harness may contact the seat frame and chafe. Over time, chaffed wires could cause an electrical short which could result in inoperative power seat adjustments, flickering lights on the instrument panel, sparking, smoke, and potentially a fire.

Buick dealers will therefore inspect, repair, and secure the wiring harness as necessary.
