Bidding on a very clean 1986 Buick GN with just over 104K Original miles with only 2 previous owners with a very clean History report, No accidents!! I can fax you the Carfax if you would like to see it before placing bids. This is one clean GN all restored with 1 repaint, was taken down to bare metal before repainting, no overspray. As most know the factory paint was not known to hold up over the years. Also all Factory bumper fillers which were known to crack have been replaced. This GN also came equipped from the factory with some very nice rare options including the Astroroof ( CF-5 ) or Sunroof which actually still functions properly, most collectors prefer the astroroof over the T-tops because they did not make many still maintaining the upper structure of the GN, especially in 86 where there was only just over 5k Grand Nationals produced, comparing to over 20K Grand Nationals built in 1987. Another very nice option was the Limited slip posi-traction ( G-80 ) which is a must have for any GN owner, have driven them without the posi-traction and they do not handle the same at all. Other options including the light weight aluminum bumper brackets and rear defogger to name a few. All of these optioned mentioned are also verified on the Service Parts Identification Label found on the inside of the trunk lid. The engine compartment is one of the cleanest I have seen with no leaks of any kind, Also has been all restored to factory with all new hoses. The 3.8 Turbo sounds great and is mechanically sound with just over 100K miles, will not need anything in the near future, still has more power then you will ever think of using. The Interior is all Original also and is like Brand New with No tears or stains, no odors of any kind. The undercarriage is all rust-free and does not have any issues, a very clean driver overall ready for the new owner to enjoy. Also has brand new dual exhaust and new tires last year with only 3000 miles on them. To nitpick I would say the rear speakers will need replaced, needs a cig lighter (if needed) and a small piece of chrome is missing off the drivers door interior panel and the Original factory rims could use restored if you want them perfect but look nice for a driver. Average Nada price is well above my low reserve and these Buicks are appreciating every day. A $500 Non-refundable Deposit is due as soon as auction ends, and the balance in a cashiers check within 7 days or cash when car is picked up, I can hold the car in my garage until the car is picked up but full payment is required within 7 days of auction end. Any Questions please ask before placing bids. I can help with Transporting to anywhere in the US at buyers expense. Only serious bidders please, these auctions are Not cheap, Thanx and Good luck!!

After being crushed from every which way and rolled over like a labrador, the 2013 Buick Encore has been named a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. To earn the accolade, a vehicle must achieve the highest rating of "Good" in each of the institute's four main crash tests: Front Moderate Overlap, Side, Rollover and Rear. The Encore aced those four tests with "Good" ratings, but missed out on the coveted Top Safety Pick+ designation by receiving a Poor rating in the institute's new Front Small Overlap test. To be named a Top Safety Pick+, the Encore would need to score at least an "Acceptable" rating in the new test, as well as "Good" in all four original crash tests.

Despite the miss, the Encore joins the Enclave, LaCrosse, Verano and Regal as Top Safety Picks all. If you count only the Encore with all-wheel drive, then all five Buicks have also earned five-star overall ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Adminstration, making Buick one of the few manufacturers to offer a full lineup with high scores from both safety rating organizations.
The front-wheel-drive Encore, despite performing equally as well as the all-wheel-drive version in NHTSA's crash tests, only earned four stars overall. As far as we can tell, the discrepancy between the two is because some safety equipment, like Forward Collision Warning and Lane Departure Assist, are optional features on the FWD Encore and standard on the AWD model.
Years ago, General Motors used Buick cars to test out the idea of a "smart highway" concept. More recently, GM has been talking up its award-winning Super Cruise semi-autonomous technology that will roll out with Cadillac and make its way to Buick. The LeSabre in the video above has nothing to do with any of that.

On Interstate 15 in Utah, a man driving this LeSabre got into an accident that rearranged the front end and set the horn on permanent blare. At the time of writing this, no one is sure what happened next, but the man ended up sitting in the snow in the highway median while his car carried on down the highway without him. Passing traffic stayed well to the right.
The 51-second video below provides a different take on our autonomous future. A local newscast on KUTV covered the story the evening of the incident, but the Utah Highway Patrol didn't have any update on the fate of the LeSabre. We'll take that to mean that Buick's take on Christine could still be out on the prowl... so watch out!
It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."
