1987 Buick T Type Turbo Regal Factory Stock Survivor / Grand National Gnx 1986 on 2040-cars
Albany, Kentucky, United States
1987 Buick Regal T Type, Turbo T. Rare factory original survivor. Black with gray interior. 57,066 low miles with all dealer documentation and window sticker. Dealer installed ASC Mclaren sunroof. 3.8 Turbo V6, performance G80 rear axle. The car is very solid with NO rust. From the information I have gathered from the previous owner the chrome bumpers were painted black along with the hood being resprayed in the 90's due to the checking paint, pin stripes were also added at that time. Hood and grill emblems were removed but I have them with the car. The factory paint on the remainder of the car is checking in all the typical places, bumper fillers front and back are starting to sag. I have decided under my ownership to keep the car original because you can only have it like this once. All factory parts are still intact down to the factory cat exhaust and paper filter, spark plugs and battery are the only parts replaced. The car runs and shifts great, smooth power and a tight ride. The brakes are excellent. All factory power options work like new. Interior is very clean non smoker, tear and stain free, original GM floormats. Factory replacement Goodyear tires which you cant find any longer, wheels and caps are great. Not a perfect Turbo Buick but a very nice original that can be perfect with very little work, it's rare to find one this complete and stock. If you have any questions or would like more detailed pics I can be reached at 606-278-3207. Thanks for looking.

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.

We admit it. We have no earthly idea how this whole thing is going to shake out.
Typically, after driving a new car or truck, we come away prepared to hazard a guess as to whether said model has a good chance of being a sales success. We've amassed enough time watching the industry, scrutinizing the competitors, and so on, to make a reasonably educated bet. Yet here we are, days removed from driving the new 2013 Buick Encore, and we still have no bloody idea.
General Motors has issued a recall covering 38,197 2012 and 2013 model-year Chevy Malibu Eco, Buick LaCrosse and Regal sedans equipped with eAssist, and sold in the United States. The automaker will check the generator control module for proper operation. Only vehicles built before December 2012 are being recalled.
According to the automaker, a malfunctioning generator control module could slowly drain the battery, causing an indicator to light up in the dash. If that indicator is ignored, the driver may experience a stalling engine, and in some cases, "a burning or melting odor, smoke, and, in rare instances, a fire in the trunk."
GM says the issue is not with the eAssist battery pack; the smoke and fire comes from overheating of the control board. One trunk fire has been reported, but no injuries are known. Scroll down below for the official press release from GM.
