If they are the same setup as the Buick LeSabre, yes it is a terrible design
and prone to failure. I have two LeSabres and both have had multiple
failures in less than 50K miles. One was at about 21K miles but 6 months
out of warranty and the service manager gave me a new unit under "good will"
as he knows the failure rate is high.
Shame really otherwise it would be a fantastic car. I have had no other
problems with it at all. The trouble is every time it happens I am without
the car for at least two weeks waiting for the new motor to come from The
States. Pain in the proverbials that is... never mind, will be fixed soon.
