1971 Buick Riviera Boattail on 2040-cars
Aberdeen, Mississippi, United States
I am selling my 1971 Buick Riviera with 111,724 original miles on it. It has the original 455 with 4 barrel carburetor, has lots of power and runs very well, never presented me with a problem or failed to start. Has AC (currently not working, has no belt and needs charge I'm sure), power windows (all of which function), power steering and disk brakes up front. The only issue with the engine is the carburetor, the linkage on the passenger side of the carb is missing (can be seen in pictures) which causes the 4 barrel not to open properly. It makes for a good cruiser as is but if you punch it, it will stutter since it's not opening up. It does run great aside from this issue, a new carb or a kit would fix this. Has a new dual exhaust ran and sounds awesome. The body is in good shape with very little rust. There is a little on the top side of the door jam, a spot along the lip of the hood, and a little in the lip in the trunk under the rear window but it isn't rusted through, just surface rust all of which can be seen in the pictures. I believe this is due to a leak in the rear window, bad seal or something along those lines, just haven't had the opportunity to deal with it and since I keep it in the carport it hasn't really been a problem. The drivers side rear floor pan has been patched and is strong but not a professional job has can be seen if you crawl under the car. The interior is in decent shape, the rear seats need cleaning up and there are 4 cracks in the dash, I took a picture of the worst one. Also, the headliner has been removed. The bucket seats that are in it now are not original, but I do have the original bench seat that came in the car. It is complete but could use recovering as the passenger side seams are splitting and there's a large tear in the driver's side. Speaking of the driver's side, the door handle is broken on that door. It can still be easily opened from the outside but a replacement handle would be ideal. Has $1,000 worth of American Racing wheels which give it a good stance. Tires are fair but could use replacing, more so up front. All in all this is a good solid car, a great driver and with a little work it could be in excellent shape. I drove this car to a wedding recently and put over 400 miles on it in a weekend, it's the only classic I own and will leave home in without my toolbox. Comes with some original pamphlets and also some service records of the car that were kept. I have tried to mention everything about the car and believe I have done so, but feel free to ask any questions. I can be reached via message through eBay or on my cell at 662-315-1337, text or call. Thanks for looking, Thomas.

Cadillac and Buick have taken the trophies in J.D. Power's latest Customer Service Index Study examining satisfaction with dealer service. Surveying more than 90,000 owners and lessees of 2009-2013 model-year cars, the study found that those with pre-paid maintenance packages were ten percent more likely to buy their next car from the same brand.

Dealer satisfaction scores have improved overall, Cadillac nabbed the luxury segment ahead of Audi and Lexus, taking the crown that Lexus held last year. Buick keeps the mass-market dealer satisfaction win in the family, finishing ahead of Volkswagen and last year's winner GMC. The study also found that service department use of tablets increased customer satisfaction, as did "best practices" like "providing helpful advice." Who knew?
You can find details on those and more findings in the press release below.
Back in September, General Motors promised nine new or refreshed models for its Buick and GMC brands within 12 months, and while we've already seen what the updated 2014 GMC Sierra will look like, we're now getting our first look at what appears to be the facelifted 2014 Buick LaCrosse. Judging by a set of spy shots posted on Autohome showing a Chinese-market model, the updated sedan is getting a pretty big makeover, including a completely redesigned interior and a refreshed exterior.

From the outside, all of the usual midcycle updates have been made to the LaCrosse, including new lights and fascias. The new front end features a larger, reshaped seven-sided grille, LED-trimmed headlights and Buick's signature portholes are now mounted on the side edges of the hood to be more visible. The rear view has similarly small yet refined changes such as the new decklid with a chrome brow that stretches the full width of the car, to a more squared-off rear fascia with exhaust outlets pushed out to the corners. From the single shot we can see, the LaCrosse's new rump looks very similar to the Hyundai Equus.
The second-generation LaCrosse helped reestablish Buick as a near-premium automaker with its interior quality, and the next model could very well up the stakes even more. The new cabin design ditches the wraparound wood trim on the instrument panel and door panels for a smoother, more contemporary look. While it's hard to make out all of the changes, we can instantly see that the center stack is now more upright with fewer buttons, but the biggest news might be the cabin technology the 2014 LaCrosse might offer. Checking out the shot of the center console, we see what looks to be a pad similar to the handwriting recognition technology used by Audi, which would make this a first for GM.
Considering that crossovers are a rapidly growing portion of the US auto market, it's not surprising to hear that General Motors is preparing to build even more of them. The company is investing $63 million to expand its Lansing Delta Township Assembly plant that builds Lambda platform CUVs like the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave.
According to GM, the expansion will add roughly 263,000 extra square feet of space to the plant. Of that, 181,000 square feet will be for an updated body shop with cutting-edge robots. There will also be 54,000 square feet of additional room in the paint shop and 28,000 square feet of more area for general assembly.
GM isn't saying as much, but there is the possibility that this extra space could allow for additional models produced at the factory. Cadillac reportedly dropped plans to build a three-row SUV on the Lambda platform earlier this year, however, dealers for the luxury brand were recently pitched the possibility of adding large and small CUVs, an ATS convertible or a sedan below the ATS.
