1996 Buick Lesabre Custom Sedan 4 Door, Good Condition on 2040-cars
Warren, Michigan, United States
This 1996 Buick LeSabre has been my car for over four years,
now, preceded by a Buick '88. It's because of these two vehicles that
I've decided not to leave the Buick 3800 class. I'm sad to see this car
go. I would certainly take it with me if I could. I have faith that
Buick will soon add amphibious capabilities to the LeSabres, but until
then, this one cannot follow me to Europe.
After 151,000 miles, this LeSabre still drives like a dream. It was
owned by an old man who had kept it in pristine shape. I bought it from
Motor City Auction whilst it was at the 88k mark. I was made aware
before I bought it that the 90's LeSabres were often fitted with
bum head gaskets. A quick check of the car records showed that the head
gasket had already been replaced by the old man. Since, I've only had
to replace a battery and the fuel pump, as well as more recently, the
wheels thanks to a rough winter. I still possess the original wheels
(as only one rim was cracked -- the rest were in fine condition) so if
you are interested, let me know. I've provided regular oil changes and
basic maintenance. In preparation for sale I've done its final oil
change, replaced the brake lines, and equipped a new battery.
The car is clean, though "lived in". The old man may have taken
pristine care of it but I am not an old man. The upholstery on the
seats is perfect, but there are a couple holes in the ceiling upholstery
and a couple stains on the carpet underneath the floor covers. The
driver side power window control works but is pushed a bit into the
armrest. It takes two fingers to open and close any window in the car
from that seat. The car is beginning to rust at the bottom exterior.
You are more than
welcome to visit and take a test drive. The car is in Warren; call or
email for address and to make an appointment. Additional
photos/information available upon request.

The options sheet of the 2014 Buick LaCrosse gets all kinds of fancy with the addition of the Ultra Luxury Interior. Pointing its Tri-Shield logo at the world of haute luxury, the cabin treatment combines sangria leather with ebony accents, shadow tamo ash wood trim and a microsuede headliner to "drive fashion forward."

You'll need to start with LaCrosse models with the 3.6-liter V6 and either the Leather, Premium or Premium II trims to go all Brioni and Buckingham on the cabin, and the privilege package will run you $2,495. We're told that you won't find such contrasting hues anywhere else in the class, though, and that kind of exclusivity might make any price a bargain.
You can find more information on the Ultra Luxury Interior in the press release below, along with some intensely fashion-foward gobbledygook.
It's nighttime in China, and Buick has just concluded an evening event the day before the first - and only - press day of the Shanghai Motor Show. The star of this evening's party was the Buick Riviera concept vehicle, a plug-in electric hybrid coupe that the automaker says gives a glimpse at its future design direction, not to mention resurrecting some nomenclature from the brand's history that includes a similarly named concept from 2007.

The shape of the Riviera is said to be inspired by water. While the traditional Buick "waterfall" grille is present, the front end gains a more aggressive note thanks to what appear to be vertical air inlets below each headlight.
As for the concept's drivetrain, Buick says it uses General Motors' new dual-mode wireless plug-in hybrid electric vehicle propulsion system, or W-PHEV for short. The keyword there is 'wireless,' as the Riviera can charge its onboard battery packs with a traditional cable or wirelessly via a "sensory recharge panel" underneath the car.
Drive down the Autobahn and there's any number of vehicles likely to pass you, and most of them are produced locally. But if you're wondering how that Opel left you in its dust, look closely (and quickly) enough and you might make out the letters OPC on the back.
They stand for Opel Performance Center (the German counterpart to Vauxhall's VXR line) and they adorn performance versions of the Corsa, Astra and Insignia. The latter is undergoing a bit of a refresh and is expected to debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in a couple of weeks, but you don't have to wait that long as our intrepid spy photographers have caught it in the flesh outside an Opel facility in Germany.
Spied here completely undisguised in Sports Tourer (read: wagon) form, the Insignia has had a few nips and tucks performed, but we'll be more intrigued to see what it's got under the hood. The current model packs a 2.8-liter twin-turbo V6 driving 325 horsepower to all four wheels, but rumors suggest that the OPC (yeah you know me!) could have as much as 400 hp up its sleeve. That would make this one heck of a sleeper - especially in wagon form - and only make us pine for a more potent version of its twin Buick Regal to roam our highways, too.
