  1. Any updates?

    Any update on when the Verano will be available? I was rather impressed with the pre-production model I saw on display. You would think Buick would get it on the market quickly since the market might be gravitating to smaller cars with gas over $4/gallon. The Verano might do the trick in...
  2. Old problems, new dealer - wish me luck

    Anyone who was following my previous threads knows the problems I was having getting good service from my selling dealership. Well, a couple of problems have resurfaced - the nav screen problem (legal disclaimer and destination reverting to Wash, DC) and the memory seat problem (works...
  3. Neat little feature

    When driving from Buffalo to Toronto yesterday I changed the display from US to Metric. Not only did the digital display show km/h, but the analog speedometer recalibrated itself so the dial actually read the speed in kilometers instead of MPH. Sure beats having to look at the tiny metric...
  4. Saw one!

    I actually got to see a Verano at the Toronto Auto Show yesterday. Unfortunately it was roped off so I couldn't check it out as closely as I would have liked. From what I saw, it's really impressive. Kind of looks like a mini Regal. Full leather interior; definitely looks like an upscale...
  5. ?

    Don't really have a clue. You could get next to nothing for it, or a couple bidders might have a bidding war for it. If you're worried about it selling too low, just set a reserve price for it; just don't set the reserve too high or it might scare prospective bidders away.
  6. Oil Life monitor system, when do you change?

    I'll change my oil when the Oil Life Indicator reads 10% or less. I've heard that quick lube places (and even dealers) recommending oil changes every 3000 miles is overkill. I think that today's engines are more than capable of going many more miles between oil changes. Besides, it's more...
  7. Supporting member

    I know the administrators of this forum don't beat you over the head asking you to become a supporting member, so I will :) Of the many forums I follow, I find myself viewing this forum the most. I've received a lot of useful information, and virtually everyone who posts is nice and civil, and...
  8. Future of the Lucerne?

    I attended the Buffalo Auto Show yesterday and, of course, checked out the Buick display. While I saw LaCrosses, Regals and Enclaves, there was not a Lucerne to be found (unless I simply missed it, which I doubt). Considering that every automaker seemed to have at least one of every model at...
  9. Problems fixed, but.....

    My car came back from the dealer Monday night with a new memory seat module and a replacement radio/nav system. The good news is that both problems seem to be fixed. The bad news is that, when I checked out the nav system I noticed that there were about 6 or 7 scratches on the top end of the...
  10. Memory Seat TSB?

    I'm another forum member who's had the "works-when-it-wants-to" memory seat problem. My dealer won't do the seat repair unless they can actually physically observe the seat not working, which they have been unable to do. I informed the service advisor that this is a known problem with this car...
  11. This is weird! Can anyone offer an explanation?

    The other day I removed a spot of what I assume was bird or insect droppings from the hood of my 2010 LaCrosse (White Diamond Tricoat). I guess the spot had been sitting for several days; it was really sticky and I had to remove it with bug & tar remover. When the spot was completely removed...
  12. First Problem with 2010 LaCrosse

    Since I purchased my LaCrosse in March, this is the first problem I've had: sometimes after the vehicle has been parked, a loud rubbing sound occurs when I start off and turn the steering wheel. It doesn't matter if I'm going in forward or reverse, just that I have to be turning the steering...
  13. Issues with iPhone software v4

    I connect my iPhone to my Buick audio system via a USB cable, allowing me to access its iPod music through the car's navigation screen. Accessing the music information (title, artist, album, etc) - normally this takes just a few seconds after pressing the "iPod menu" button on the nav screen...
  14. How many Buicks have you owned in your life (so far)?

    I told myself that I would never own another GM vehicle again after having three problematic GM cars. However, I think that in the last year or two GM has made great strides in turning out quality vehicles. The GMC Terrain, Buick LaCrosse and Regal, as well as some of the Cadillacs come to...
