Any concern with a vehicle’s brakes is always a serious one. Unfortunately there can be quite the variety of reasons as to why your Buick’s brakes are not catching consistently. However with the limited information provided, my best advice is to recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic to look over the brakes as soon as possible. Once there, they will be able to carefully inspect the braking system on your Buick and identify the cause of them not catching. While there, they will also be able to make the repairs needed to keep your brake system operating at maximum performance.
