YOU ARE VIEWING A 1980 BUICK RIVIERA TWO DOOR COUPE, BLUE WITH OYSTER LEATHER AND PAINTED PINSTRIPE. THIS RIVIERA HAS 58,199 MILES, I HAVE THE TITLE TO PROVE THIS. THIS CAR IS POWERED BY ITS ORIGINAL NUMBERS MATCHING 350R GAS FOUR BARREL NON- FUEL INJECTED ENGINE, (THE 350R ENGINE IS RARE INDEED, MOST CAME WITH THE 305 GAS ENGINE). THIS ENGINE I MUST SAY IS WHISPER QUIET. I JUST INSTALLED A DATE CODED FACTORY SET OF DELCORE PACKARD IGNITION WIRES TO REPLACE ITS ORIGINAL ONES. ALL OF THE WIRE SEPARATORS ARE PRESENT TO KEEP THE WIRES OFF THE ENGINE. THE FACTORY HOSE LOOMS (GM ZIP TIES) ARE ALL PRESENT. MOST OF THE HOSES ARE ORIGINAL, ALONG WITH THE ORIGINAL T -CLAMPS. THERE IS A BRAND NEW DELCO BATTERY, THE HOOD PAD IS ALSO BRAND NEW. THE CAR HAS ICE COLD A/C. THIS RIVIERA'S TRANSMISSION IS ORIGINAL, AND SHIFTS THROUGH ALL OF THE GEARS PERFECTLY WITHOUT HESITATION. THERE ARE NO DRIPS, NO LEAKS, NO WEIRD SQUEALS, PERIOD. THIS CAR IS LIKE DRIVING A NEW ONE, I HAVEN'T SEEN ONE THIS CLEAN IN YEARS, NOR HAVE I EVER OWNED ONE THIS CLEAN. IT HAS THE ORIGINAL GM FULL FACTORY MATS (FRONT AND BACK) WITHOUT ANY WEAR ON THEM AT ALL... AMAZING... ALL OF THE OPTIONS WORK EXCEPT THE CLOCK AND ANTENNA, WHICH CAN BE HAD HERE ON EBAY VERY INEXPENSIVELY. THE INTERIOR IS PERFECT, CRACK FREE, NO STRESS ON THE ORIGINAL LEATHER AT ALL. THE DASH IS PERFECT, ALONG WITH THE CARPET AND THE HEADLINER IS ALSO WITHOUT FLAW. I HAVE THE ORIGINAL BROADCAST SHEET (BUILD SHEET, SEE PICTURES) FOR WHEN MY UNCLE PURCHASED THIS NEW, THE CAR WAS REPAINTED BY BUICK, WHEN IT WAS NEW, DUE TO A DEFECT IN THE FINISH, THE PAINT IS ABOUT AS CLOSE TO FLAWLESS AS YOU CAN GET WITH NO RUST, OR SCRATCHES THAT I CAN SEE. THIS CAR LOOKS BETTER THAN THE PICTURES IF YOU CAN BELIEVE THAT. IT SPORTS THE CORRECT WIDTH WHITEWALLS, ALL FOUR ARE LIKE NEW. THIS IS A SHOW CAR, BUT THAT IS MY OPINION, I DOUBT THERE IS ONE AS CLEAN AS THIS, IF YOU WANT A CAR FROM THE EARLY EIGHTIES THAT RUNS AND DRIVES LIKE NEW THEN THIS IS IT. YOU MAY TAKE THIS CAR TO THE MECHANIC OF YOUR CHOICE (WITHIN 15 MILES OF MY HOME) BEFORE THE AUCTIONS END, NOT AFTER. I WILL MAKE MYSELF AVAILABLE TO ANY CARRIER YOU MAY CHOOSE TO USE, IN THE EVENT OF A MOBILE TRANSPORT. THAT WOULD BE FUNDED AT YOUR EXPENSE. I REQUIRE PAYMENT WITHIN SEVEN BUSINESS DAYS, THIS IS TRULY A ONCE IN A LIFETIME FIND, I AM NOT A MECHANIC AND EVERYTHING EXPRESSED HERE IS MY OPINION. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A CHANCE TO BUY A BEAUTIFUL RIVIERA ,THEN LOOK NO FURTHER , THIS IS YOUR CAR. THANKS FOR LOOKING!

The days of changing your engine oil every 3,000 miles are long gone thanks to most cars having automatic oil monitoring systems, but about 800,000 General Motors vehicles apparently have incorrect monitoring software that is leading to premature engine component wear. According to Autoweek, certain 2010-2012 Buick LaCrosse, Regal, Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain models equipped with 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines could be going too long in between oil changes resulting in a higher-than-normal number of warranty claims for the engine's balance chain. The balance chain links the balance shaft to the crankshaft, and a worn one can produce higher noise levels.

As a fix, GM dealers will be reprogramming the software for the monitors in an effort to reduce the interval between oil changes, which varies based on driving habits and conditions. Through February 2015, the software update will be done at no cost to vehicle owners, but since this is not a recall, after that point, it will be up to the discretion of dealers as to whether or not they will charge for the service. What isn't immediately clear is whether GM plans on giving assistance to out-of-warranty customers who are experiencing engine issues from the worn chain.
As inventory of the Chevrolet Malibu and Buick LaCrosse continues to pile up, General Motors will be idling its Fairfax Assembly Plant for two weeks, according to Automotive News. This move comes about a month after the plant was shut down for three weeks in late December and early January for the same reason. As of January 31, the GM had a 94-day supply of Malibu stock while the LaCrosse was a little worse with a 117-day supply.

Just last week, GM announced that it would be investing $600 million in upgrading this plant, but it's unclear what future plans the company has in store for Fairfax considering slow sales of both the plant's models. We do expect a refreshed and more luxurious LaCrosse shortly and an early design update for the Malibu to be announced at some point this year, although we have had no official word as to when either will happen.
It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."
