Owned by a non-smoker, 79 years of age.  Does not drive anymore, and has always been garaged, and GENTLY driven.  Oil changes & services always done on time.  Recently, the car passed Nevada smog check, had all the windows tinted (35% on the sides and limo on the rear and top of the windshield.)  I get compliments and inquiries on the car all the time.  I hate to sell it, but I have no use for it anymore.  It was my daily driver, and it never let me down.  A very nice car that can only increase in value.  I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding the car, as best as I can.  I have the owner's manual, but the binding came loose from age.  Two miles from my house a used car dealer has the identical car in virtually the identical condition and is asking $7,295, so I am very realistic and fair in what I am asking   In that it is a  private sale, there is no sales tax, of course.  The title is clean, from Nevada, and there are no loans or liens on the car.






What makes the car great----prettiest color combo (white/burgundy) rare, sought after model by collectors, cost over $30,000 when new in 1990, economical to drive, dependable, parts are cheap (other GM cars from the same year came from the same parts bin), car just had an oil change/filter, had a tune-up with new spark plugs, had the air and fuel filter changed, is garaged (so the original paint is shiny) and detailed every two weeks, the headlights work properly (just had repaired), the digital dashboard is working properly, as are the power windows, power seat, power mirrors.  Has the original rims with the original centers (they're expensive), and the tires are good, having just had an alignment, balance, and rotation so the car is smooth at 80 mph.  The car has spent its life in the South West, thus, it is not some rust-eaten clunker from snow states.


What makes the car less than showroom perfect:   windshield has a vertical crack on the extreme right side, check engine light came on (passed smog anyway), passenger seat was torn by a razor when someone broke in and tried to take the car, the driver's door was replaced and part of the rear quarter panel was painted, thus there is a slight shade difference in that area and the power door locks/alarm were not working since,  back when the car was new, I learned from the auto check report that the hood was fixed, explaining some paint variance on that as well.   the radio works intermittently, and the cassette doesn't work, the A/C isn't working properly, although the compressor is running.  When you put the car in reverse, it sometimes is less than smooth as it shifts into that gear.  One of the horn buttons fell off (I have in the trunk).  There might be other things I am not aware of, since I am not a mechanic, but nothing else is obvious to me, for it were, I would list it here. The power antenna is disconnected, because when I connect it the motor keeps running even though the antenna is at its full height.

The car is obviously almost 25 years old, so expect it to need renewal of parts due to age, so the car is being sold as is, no returns, and you are responsible for arranging shipping or you can pick it up yourself and drive it home.

Buick Envision CUV launches in China, is America next?

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 09:28:00 EST

Buick is launching its new midsize Envision crossover in China at the Chengdu Motor Show, where it will slot between the subcompact Encore and larger Enclave. While it might be hard to muster too much excitement about a Chinese-market crossover, don't completely ignore this one. There's a very good chance it could be on sale in North America to fill the same hole in the brand's lineup over here, possibly as a 2016 model.
We recently spied the Envision completely undisguised as it was arriving at the Chengdu show for its debut. The CUV still looks like a stretched Encore from some front angles, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It's got a similar oversized grille, hood vents (presumably faux) and large greenhouse as its little brother. Where the midsize CUV differs is its prominent crease running down the side and the different rear treatment, with wing-shaped trim cutting into the taillights.
The interior looks like a pretty nice place to spend time, too, with a predictable mix of leather, wood and metal, and it should be quiet in there with its active noise cancelation system. Infotainment is provided by an eight-inch touchscreen with a touchpad and voice controls.

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.

Buick shows off new Ultra Luxury Interior for LaCrosse

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 16:29:00 EST

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.
