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

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued recalls for the 2013 Buick LaCrosse and 2013 Cadillac SRX due to a problem with the software for the transmission controller. On about 27,000 SRX and LaCrosse models, the transmission could accidentally be shifted to Sport mode, which would reduce the amount of engine braking drivers experience.

NHTSA says this could increase the risk of a crash, but, fortunately, the required fix is simply an update to the software.
While we're on the subject of General Motors vehicle recalls, a small number (48) of compressed natural gas versions of the 2011 Chevrolet Express are also being recalled for a potential risk of fire or explosion. Yikes. Both official recall notices are posted below.
Inside Line reports Buick is planning to bring back some of the more storied names from the company's past, including the Grand National, GNX and the T-Type. Those cars rose to prominence in the 1970s and '80s to become performance legends of their day.

The new models will reportedly make use of the rear-wheel drive platform that currently underpins the Cadillac ATS and all would arrive as sedans - according to an unnamed source familiar with the initiative. Odds are the T-Type and the Grand National would share a driveline, with honest money being on a new twin-turbocharged 3.6-liter V6 as the engine of choice. Word has it the mill will be good for anywhere from 350 to 400 horsepower.
That leaves only the GNX. Inside Line seems to think that machine could get down the road with some help from the all-new GM LT1 small-block V8. The engineers behind the ATS platform have already told us the engine bay is large enough for to accommodate the big eight pot, and since GM is most certainly working on an ATS-V, a slightly less powerful, less luxurious Buick iteration makes some kind of sense. We can't wait to see these things in the light of day.
If VIN tags recently posted online prove accurate, the 2014 Buick Verano may be getting a new base engine. Presently the Verano makes use of GM's 2.4-liter Ecotec four-cylinder engine in non-turbo trim; 2014 documentation appears to indicate that GM's entry-level luxury compact will instead feature a 1.6-liter turbocharged mill.
If this is the same engine seen in Europe, GM Inside News suggests it may offer 192 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque - useful improvements over the larger naturally aspirated mill's 180 hp and 171 lb-ft. More importantly, the downsized engine would likely improve on the Verano's current fuel mileage estimates of 21 city and 31 highway.
We like the Verano in both of its current iterations, but the 1.6 turbo engine sounds like a worthwhile upgrade if this reports turns out to be true. Plus, if more performance is your bag, baby, there's always the Verano's optional 2.0 turbo engine with an impressive 250 horsepower and 260 lb-ft from just 2.0 liters of displacement.
