    • I have for sale a very cool 1970 Buick Riviera.  These aren't seen very often any more.  This one has a good running 455 V-8 and has an automatic transmission that shifts well.  The car is long and low and rides good.  The car has 54,973 miles on it.  The paint on the car is called Sunset Sage.  Kinda like a purple with a little copper in it.  Has power brakes and power steering that are both working well.  The following all work:  all 4 power windows, horn, all lights, wipers, remote in glove box, tilt wheel, power seat, speed alert arrow and buzzer, speedometer, fuel guage, heater and defroster, glove box light, interior domes, temp. and brake warning lights, all turn signals and their dash indicators, quarterpanel turning lights, brake lights.
    • The factory A/C does work and blows cold.  These items don't work:  radio, driver's remote mirror, passenger's door window switch.  All of the other individual window switches are currently working. 
    • The body on this 1970 Riviera is really prety decent.  There are small spots of rust through just above each rear wheel as seen in the photos.  The paint is faded in a few spots, especially on the roof.  The undercarriage is very solid and I have found only some surface rust.  Trunk floor is solid as well with light surface rust present.  Cabin floors look ok from underneath and seem very solid when you stamp your heel on the inside. 
    • The interior is decent as well with the worst being the very evident heavy wear on the front seat.  Rear seat is good.  Headliner is good.  Dash is real decent.  Door panels are good as well with some armrest cracking.  Guages work and are clear and easily readable.
    • The 455 V-8 runs well and the trans shifts good.  The driver's side exhaust manifold has a leak and makes noise but not too bad.  It gets quieter when the engine is warned up.  A section of exhaust pipe will need to be added to the driver's side tailpipe rearward of the rear axel area.  Maybe even the whole driver's side pipe.  The other side is old but sounds ok.  The chrome on the car is not perfect but decent driver quality.  Glass is good.
    • This 1970 Riviera is fun to drive and a 455 has good power.  The interior is comfortable.  This was pretty much a 1-year body-style so its unique. 
    • Please feel free to ask any questions.  Personal inspection is encouraged.  As-is, no warranty.

Restyled 2014 Buick Regal adds AWD, Regal GS loses power

Tue, 26 Mar 2013 11:30:00 EST

Although the current Buick Regal hasn't even been on the market for very long, General Motors is using the New York Auto Show to unveil an updated version of the sedan in a similar fashion to what we saw yesterday with the 2014 LaCrosse. Like the LaCrosse, all 2014 Regal models will be getting a new look both for the exterior and interior design, but the big news takes place under the sedan's skin.
Except for the base Regal eAssist, the Regal Turbo and Regal GS will both be adding the benefit of all-wheel drive, but there is no word as to how much weight this system will add to each car's curb weight. The Regal Turbo's 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder has received a decent bump in output from 220 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque to 259 hp and 295 lb-ft; unfortunately, these same figures are carried over to the Regal GS, which means that car drops from 270 hp. Both turbocharged models (Regal Turbo and Regal GS) will now be offered with all-wheel drive and the ability of sending more than 90 percent of the engine's torque to the rear wheels.
In terms of styling, the 2014 Regal gets similar styling changes found on the updated Enclave and LaCrosse, including reworked fascias, scalloped headlights and a full-width chrome strip spanning between the new LED taillights. Inside, key changes were made to the Regal's cabin technology, such as the instrument gauge cluster and infotainment system. On the Regal and Regal Turbo, a new 4.2-inch color display is available for drivers to see information for the vehicle, navigation and audio systems, but the Regal GS' cabin is slightly different with an eight-inch configurable gauge display. One of the best changes may be the overall reduction in buttons on the center stack, creating a cleaner-looking and easier-to-use cabin.

NHTSA may greatly expand GM airbag recall

Wed, 05 Jun 2013 16:30:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is pondering whether to dramatically upscale a pair of airbag recalls on General Motors vehicles. The two existing campaigns, one launched in the fall of 2012 and the other in January of this year covered just 6,845 vehicles, but the government agency is considering whether to boost the recall to around 400,000 units.
The existing recalls involve the the closely related 2012 Buick Verano (shown) and Chevrolet Cruze sedans, along with Sonic and Camaro models. The root of the problem is a shorting bar in the inflator module of the steering-wheel-mounted airbag that may contact the primary state airbag terminal, a condition that could prevent deployment in an accident. Dealer technicians have been replacing the steering wheel airbag coils to fix the issue.
According to a post on NHTSA's website, the root cause, said to be a production issue, may not have been completely isolated - particularly for the second recall, which was for the Camaro. According to Automotive News, GM says it is cooperating with the government investigation, but won't say whether or not it knows the true origin of the problem.

GM sweetens military discount for Buick, Chevy and GMC

Sun, 06 Oct 2013 13:02:00 EST

American servicemen and women interested in a new vehicle from Chevrolet, Buick or GMC now have a bit more incentive to head down to their local dealer, as General Motors has announced plans to improve its military discount program.
The new GM Military Discount Program offers eligible consumers a new Chevy, Buick or GMC at invoice pricing, which in some cases can take very large chunks out of a car's retail price. When factored in with other incentives, most of which are available with the Military Discount, the bargains are thick on the ground for members of the US armed forces.
GM's Retail Sales and Marketing Support general manager, Chuck Thomson, said, "GM has long supported the military and military families, and we hope this simplified and enhanced discount will show our appreciation for their service and help make it easier for them to own one of our great new vehicles." The program is open to all active duty and reserve members in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, National Guard and Coast Guard, as well as veterans that have been out of the service for less than a year. Military retirees and their spouses are also eligible for the discount.
