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 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.
Well, all good things must come to an end. For 2015, the Buick Verano's experiment with a manual transmission will cease, as the American manufacturer has announced it will discontinue the 6MT in the turbocharged version of its compact sedan. According to Buick, the take rate on the Verano Turbo 6MT was (unsurprisingly) low, leading to its discontinuation.

That's not the only bit of news for the Verano, though. After a few years on the market, Buick has seen fit to refresh the popular sedan. The visual changes aren't huge, really, with subtle tweaks to the headlights and taillights. We'd bargain that the average passer-by wouldn't notice a difference between the two.
The main aesthetic change is a new appearance package, available on the mid-range Convenience and Leather option groups. Unimaginatively called just that - Appearance Package - it offers up a new paint color, Desert Dusk Metallic, as well as a grille treatment and a rear spoiler. The new package is, however, limited to naturally aspirated models.
General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.
