Looked at three different dealerships online, in Las Vegas and in Arizona, they all state the same info on the window sticker:......$350 credit NOT EQUIPPED WITH LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT AND REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT see dealer for details (Beginning October 10, 2022, certain vehicles will be forced to include (00S) Not Equipped with Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which removes Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Does not include later dealer retrofit. See the window label for the features on a specific vehicle.),........ So now as to the heated seats, I was told by these three different dealers that they are indeed working, and on the Window sticker the seats were not credited with a later retrofit mentioned. However, I do want the blind zone and rear cross traffic alert. What I seem to have found is that some dealers are discounting these Envisions now ( $5 - $7 off sticker ) maybe because of this issue? What will this will do to later resale values?, all depends on the next buyer wanting these safety features, which is why I was choosing to buy a new 2023......What do you all think folks?

Okay, here's a update, I called Buick and spoke directly with them, The Lane change / blind zone side alert and rear cross traffic alert will Not be retrofitted in 2023 ....this is straight from Buick....so we are done as to buying any 2023's that were built after Oct 10 2022....and did Buick care? Nope

Hello All!

If your Monroney Decal Indicates "NOT EQUIPPED", but shows "INCLUDES LATER RETROFIT", you may be good. I say Maybe because the CEO of GM is pushing chip shortages out to 2024 and asking Congress for help. If it only indicates "NOT EQUIPPED", it can not be added later by retrofit: per my salesman.

To Check your build date, it is located on the decal inside the B pillar - driver's side door. (See Pictures)

Yes Sir, that was the point of my topic.....After Oct 10th build date, not more retrofits seen on the post October window sticker ......(Beginning October 10, 2022, certain vehicles will be forced to include (00S) Not Equipped with Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which removes Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Does not include later dealer retrofit
