******EDIT******I WILL DELIVER THIS WAGON TO AN AIRPORT NEAR YOU FOR A FULL PRICE OFFER. I know buying on ebay is tough because of shipping cars so want to make this as convenient as possible for a potential buyer. I'm not driving to CA (although I wish I had the time to do so) but am willing to make a day trip and fly home. Also shows I trust this car to get me there :) Hopefully you live somewhere cool like NYC and I can make a weekend out of it. Email me with any questions or if you want to work something out. 

This is one of the nicest examples of a late-80's all original wagon you will ever find. Extremely low mileage for the year: 74,500.

The original white paint shines on this Buick and the woodgrain sides are in great condition. Easily cruises down the highway at 75 mph with no rattles, shakes, or loud road noise. The cabin is quiet, the radio sounds fine, and all the speakers work. 

My kids absolutely love riding in the rear-facing backseat of this car with the window down. When your kids sit in the "very back" and you realize how quiet it is in the front, you'll wonder why they ever stopped making them like this. And yes, we've been compared to the Griswold's :)

The only reason I'm selling this classic is because I have one too many cars and can't bear to sell my Bronco (I justified purchasing the wagon thinking I could). 

You'll attract plenty of attention from people at gas stations and friends who say they had one "just like this growing up!" You'll also get a lot of smiles and "thumbs ups" on the road. 

Please see my condition description above. Nearly everything works on this Estate Wagon just as it did in 1987. To my knowledge, it has every available option from that model year, including the two-way tailgate (swings open or lays flat like a pick-up), climate control, and power locks and driver seat. The air conditioner will absolutely freeze you out. The heat works as well. 

In case you missed it in the condition description, I want to be clear about the following: the very rear light needs a bulb, I can't get cruise control to engage (although the light comes on), and the rear driver's side door sometimes doesn't lock when you press the power door lock from the driver's seat. 

Everything else works as it should. The switch on the dash raises or lowers the rear window. You can also lower the back glass by turning the key in the tailgate. Includes brand new windshield wipers and new hydraulics to hold the huge hood open. 

This wagon belonged to an older lady who always kept it garaged. When she passed away, a local(ish) car collector bought it from her estate because it was identical to the one his wife's dad drove while he was still alive. She began to avoid it because of the reminder of her father so he put it up for sale and that's who I bought it from. It hasn't disappointed in any way. I wish I could justify keeping it but I can't. 

Local buyers are welcome to come look it over or take it for a test drive. Email me any questions and I'll get back to you. 

I've never shipped a car but I'd be glad to assist in any way possible. $500 is due within 24 hours of a winning offer. 

Please check out the pictures and don't let this one get away!

J.D. Power: Mini, Lexus again offer most satisfying sales experience

Thu, 29 Nov 2012 11:29:00 EST

JD Power has released its annual Sales Satisfaction Index Study, and once again Mini and Lexus have taken top honors. Overall, buyers are more satisfied with the auto-buying sales experience than they were last year, with those surveyed reporting an average score of 664 points on a 1,000-point scale. That's up from 648 in 2011. Dealer satisfaction also increased by five points over last year as well.
All told, Lexus brought home an index score of 737, which was high enough to put it atop the luxury brands for the second year in a row. JD Power says Infiniti came in second in that category with a score of 728 and Cadillac rounded out the podium with it's rating of 725. Speaking of Infiniti, that brand saw the single largest jump in sales satisfaction of any brand on the survey, popping up 52 index points over 2011.
Among mass-market brands, Mini ranked highest with a score of 712, followed closely by Buick with 706 and GMC farther down the line with 683. You can check out the full press release below for more information.

Cadillac, Buick and Chevy decisions impacted by worries abroad

European Concerns Drive GM, But Beware Of The French Connection
GM's bid to rationalize Europe will impact the products that will be offered domestically.
It seems that Europe is defining the future of General Motors more so than its home North American market. Having axed Saturn, Pontiac and Hummer, GM has done a fairly good job of repositioning its remaining four divisions, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick and GMC. Cadillac carries the luxury banner. Chevrolet is aimed at the masses with cars and trucks along with a nod to performance thanks to Camaro and Corvette. Buick bridges the premium gap between Chevy and Cadillac, while GMC offers a hardcore work/upscale proposition.

New Buick Verano testing in Germany

Thu, 29 May 2014 09:31:00 EST

A refresh to Buick's popular Verano sedan appears to be nigh, thanks to these spy photos that show the tweaked four-door testing in Germany.
As with the current Verano, the refreshed model will have a great deal in common with its European platform-mates, the Vauxhall/Opel Astra. Each car rides on General Motors's Delta II platform. Unlike the current car, though, the refreshed model's styling could lean more heavily towards its European roots, if these photos are any indication.
Despite its commonality with the Astra Sedan, the Verano has featured its own unique styling since arriving in the US back in 2011 as a 2012 model, with distinct fascias at both the front and back, as wells its own headlight and taillight designs. The two cars were still rebadged vehicles, but it was more subtle than it will be in 2015, when the refreshed Verano arrives. Astra-like elements are expected to dominate, particularly in regards to the headlights and taillights. That said, trademark Buick styling features will remain, like the waterfall grille. Really, then, the 2016 Verano won't be unlike the Regal - a rebadged Vauxhall/Opel Insignia, aside from a few very small styling details.
