The 1991 Reatta coupes are getting very hard to find; here is your chance to own one at a reasonable price! 1991 was the last year the Buick Reatta was manufactured, with only 1554 being produced. The 1991 Reatta featured many improvements over earlier versions, including more horsepower and improved anti-lock brakes. My 1991 Reatta coupe is Serial Number 1000. In addition, 1991 was the only year that the Flame Red (Corvette Red) interior was offered, with only 14 ever sold. This Reatta is one of those 14. I am the fourth owner, having acquired it in September of 2008 from the previous owner in Maine and having approximately 70,358 miles on it at the time of purchase. The car currently has approximately 110,000 miles on it. I confirmed that all previous owners had kept the car garaged during winter months. As a result, the car is in good mechanical condition. The engine runs smooth and gets around 25 MPG on the open highway. Since buying the car I have replaced the water pump, all four struts, had the front brakes serviced, transmission fluid changed, and installed new parts in both headlight flip-up mechanisms. I also installed new top-of-the-line Hankook Optima tires (top rated by Consumer Reports). The interior (and trunk) is extremely clean, with some minor wear on the driver seat stitching. Equipped with 6-way power seats and AM/FM Stereo Radio (works) with Cassette Player (cassette player does not work).
The sale of this classic car will include the original Flame Red floor mats (good condition), Service Manual, Reatta leatherette zippered portfolio containing the 1991 Reatta Operating Manual, Reatta tire pressure gauge, Reatta pen & pad, Reatta penlight, and service records. Also included is the full line, 1991 Buick color catalog (88 pages) with the Reatta featured on pages 18 through 25. All of these materials are in a plastic bag emblazoned with the Reatta logo. I'm selling the car because we will be moving soon and I will not have storage space available at the new locatio

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.
Following an earlier concept and successive teasers, Buick revealed the new Envision crossover a little over a month ago. The thing is, it was launched in China, for China. The question, then, is whether it will make the jump to the North American market. And the answer is: quite possibly.

According to division sales chief Duncan Aldred in speaking to Edmunds, Buick is looking into the prospect of bringing the Envision to the US: "We can't confirm anything, but clearly it is a very nicely designed and executed product that is very much a Buick," said Aldred.
If and when the compact crossover would appear in US showrooms, it would slot in between the smaller Encore and the larger Enclave. It would likely be offered in front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive and mild hybrid configurations. Sources expect it to arrive in the third quarter of 2015 as a competitor to the likes of the Mercedes GLA, Lexus NX and Lincoln MKC.
The recall madness over at General Motors isn't letting up anytime soon, as evidenced by this latest call-back of 8,208 Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans. For those keeping track, this is the fifth recall that GM has announced in the past two weeks, not to mention the massive ignition-switch issue from earlier this year.
GM issued a statement saying these sedans are being recalled due to "possible reduced braking performance," according to Automotive News. The problem? Rear brake rotors may have accidentally been installed in the front brake assembly. And since both cars use more robust braking systems up front than out back, braking power could be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Automotive News reports that, of the over 8,000 cars being recalled, about 1,700 are currently in the hands of customers, while the others are still in dealer inventory. GM is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to this problem. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2014 model year.
