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.

2013 Opel Cascada

Tue, 24 Sep 2013 14:57:00 EST

The Future Buick Verano Convertible?
I wasn't wearing a pedometer while in Germany covering the Frankfurt Motor Show this year, but it's safe to say I walked more than a few miles between press conferences, shooting cars and trekking back to the media center on the first day alone. For this reason, it didn't take much convincing from General Motors for me to duck out of the Messe a day early and drive some of its latest Opel models. No, this didn't include the all-new Country Tourer, but I was able to drive the Opel Mokka (our Buick Encore), the Opel Adam and the Opel Cascada.
I focused most of my driving time behind the wheel of the Cascada, which went on sale in Europe earlier this year, since rumors are swirling that a Buick version of this convertible "could happen soon." Buick hasn't had a convertible since the Reatta, and GM has been lacking a non-performance, budget-minded convertible since the Pontiac brand - and its G6 - was dropped, so adding the Cascada to Buick showrooms could further help the reemerging brand compete in the near-luxury segment. Although the weather was too chilly (and occasionally rainy) to enjoy the Cascada with its top down for very long, I was able to clock a fair bit of drive time behind the wheel on roads ranging from the autobahn to tight roads in small, quaint villages.

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.

Buick Encore takes a hit of Mokka to tackle Dakar

Wed, 03 Sep 2014 07:58:00 EST

There are many vehicles we'd consider taking racing. Even on a cross-country rally as punishing as the Dakar. But a Buick Encore? That's not one that would enter our motorsports-based consciousness. Yet it's basically what General Motors is entering in the South American rally raid this year, and you're looking at it.
Unveiled at the Moscow Motor Show, this rally machine is based on (or at least billed as) an Opel Mokka - the name that GM's European brand applies to the vehicle Americans know as the Encore, Buick's subcompact crossover. Only it's obviously been extensively modified. It's got a ten-inch raised suspension, a 137-gallon fuel tank, carbon-fiber bodywork and... hold on, we're sure we're missing something here. Oh, right: a 6.2-liter V8 kicking out 340 horsepower and 487 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox.
In other words, this is not the same Encore (or Mokka) you can pick up at your local Buick, Opel or Vauxhall dealership. It's not even close. It's not even recognizable as such, really. It was unveiled alongside a more sedate Opel Mokka Moscow Edition and a slew of other local debuts for the Opel brand that you can read more about in the (translated and original) Russian press release below.
