You are bidding on our 1998 Buick Riviera Supercharged model, with only an amazing 79,000 miles. This Riviera is a gold/tan with perfect tan leather seats, factory mats still in place with no wear... ie no heel marks. There are no funny smells, no leaks, no drivability issues at all. It shifts perfectly and goes down the road effortlessly. It has pretty much every conceivable option, including a perfectly running sunroof/moon roof, heated seats on both sides, tilt wheel, cruise control, cd player and ice cold a/c. There are no cracks in the dash at all, the leather is still supple, with no cracking or rips. This riviera has trac control, a factory supercharged engine that is original to the car, in fact everything is original including the paint which is perfect with no rust, although the passengers fender is slightly dull for some reason but that is barely noticeable. This car has a factory pinstripe, and has never been in an accident, this car has spent its entire life garaged, free from the elements. The like new tires are firestones, (they have approx. 8,000 miles on them) with the factory Buick rims, and all of their original center caps and no curb rash at all. The brakes are good, along with the complete stock exhaust. The only function that we know of that doesn't work is the power antenna, which can be had right here on ebay very inexpensively. This is truly a Buick you would be proud to own, you are welcome to take this car to the mechanic of your choice within 15 miles of my home before auctions end, NOT AFTER. If the car is to be transported I will make myself available to the delivery truck driver, but the transportation expense and arrangements are your responsibility. I would require payment within seven days of the auctions end. Thanks for looking, good luck and happy bidding!

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.
Earlier this month, Shanghai GM gave us a glimpse of the production version of the Buick Envision concept revealed at the Shanghai Motor Show back in 2011. And now it's released the first unveiled shot and initial details of the crossover to slot in the considerable gap between the Encore and Enclave.

The new Envision is set later this year to reach Chinese showrooms, where it will be called the Ang Ke Wei, after which we're expecting it to arrive Stateside. The production-ready Envision is about the size of the Chevrolet Equinox or GMC Terrain, but is differentiated by a more upscale treatment and Buick's signature waterfall grille, flanked by Xenon headlamps and LED running lights and riding on 19-inch wheels.
Power comes from GM's familiar 2.0-liter turbo four with direct injection and stop/start ignition, driving 256 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque through a six-speed automatic transmission to all four wheels. That's about all that GM's Chinese operation has announced at this point - it's not even clear what platform the vehicle is on - but you can check out the press release for yourself below.

The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
