Great old car I have owned a long time it deserves a better home than I can give it. It was a beautiful car when I got it 16 years later it makes me sad to think of how it used to look

This car has traveled the world quite a bit bought in the us shipped to Germany (I have a German registration) outfitted to run on the autobahn and used as a limousine over there 
It has passing lights and side marker lights that were installed so it could run on the autobahn the gas filler neck has been modified to take leaded gas and the speedo is in kilometers it says no smoking in German on the dash by the lighter 

I don't know if any engine or suspension work was done to it but this car will fly I have had it over 200kmh many times I used to make a 314 mile one way trip in 3 hours flat every other weekend with it when I got it 

It has new tires I don't like them they just don't feel as sure footed as the old ones but they are brand new

The leather interior is beautiful and smells amazing the carpet is faded though 

It needs paint, new top, tailpipe, some rubber trim thing back by the bumper their are a couple of pieces of chrome trim that are loose  and the drive shaft has a vibration due to it needing a new CV joint I put a top on this car once and they told me they took care of the rust under the top but it is blistering and bubbling again so that was a lie there are no rust holes in this car but work needs to be done soon

J.D. Power study sees new car dependability problems increase for first time since 1998

Wed, 12 Feb 2014 13:31:00 EST

For the first time since 1998, J.D. Power and Associates says its data shows that the average number of problems per 100 cars has increased. The finding is the result of the firm's much-touted annual Vehicle Dependability Study, which charts incidents of problems in new vehicle purchases over three years from 41,000 respondents.
Looking at first-owner cars from the 2011 model year, the study found an average of 133 problems per 100 cars (PP100, for short), up 6 percent from 126 PP100 in last year's study, which covered 2010 model-year vehicles. Disturbingly, the bulk of the increase is being attributed to engine and transmission problems, with a 6 PP100 boost.
Interestingly, JDP notes that "the decline in quality is particularly acute for vehicles with four-cylinder engines, where problem levels increase by nearly 10 PP100." Its findings also noticed that large diesel engines also tended to be more problematic than most five- and six-cylinder engines.

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 15:30:00 EST

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.

Opel to be shuttered in China, but will restart Buick production in Germany

Fri, 28 Mar 2014 18:28:00 EST

Opel, General Motors' troubled German brand continues its quest to reinvent itself and find solid profitability. In the course of that metamorphosis, the company has a bit of good news/bad news today. The good news is, it will once again begin screwing together Buick models for the American market. The bad news, though, is that it's being shut down in yet another country, China.
Let's start with the good news. The last vehicle Opel's Ruesselsheim factory built for the North American market was the early run of the then-new Regal, which is based heavily on the Opel Insignia. Production ran for just over two years, from 2009 to 2011, before moving production to Oshawa, Ontario.
Now, thanks to a 245-million-euro investment (just over $336 million), Opel will kick off production of a unspecified model for the US in the "second half of the decade," according to Automotive News. According to Opel, the new model will be announced before the end of 2014. You can begin your speculation about this new model down in Comments (we're wagering it'll be the Cascada convertible, sold here under the Buick umbrella).
