  1. No Bluetooth phone book

    Finally replaced my flip phone with an Apple i6s. Paired it to my GS and created a new "contact" list. However my GS does not display a "phone book" saying that it is empty. What should I do to let the GS read my iphone contact list?
  2. TPMS reads 4-5 psi higher than handheld gauge

    Have a 2012 GS bought new which now has 91k miles. The TPMS has always read higher than 2 of my handheld tire pressure gauges. Lately it has been reading 4-5 psi higher than the handhelds. Wonder if my 7 year-old TPMS sensors are starting to die; I would think they would read low if dying.

  4. Trade War will hurt Buick?

    Will Trumps Trade Tariffs hurt Buick? I would think so especially with Buick's large presence in China and with Buick mirroring Germany's Opel. I think ALL U.S. car manufacturers will be hurt even the foreign brands being built here.

    Not a lot of Buicks in Napa, CA. See some Lacrosses and SUVs but no Regals except for mine which I've had since 2012. Then I took a long walk a couple of weeks ago and saw a Black GS parked in a driveway a couple of blocks away. Can't tell what year but have 19's. Whoever you are, welcome.
  12. Passenger side front bumper trim knocked off

    The bumper trim underneath the front facia on the passenger side has been knocked off its seating tabs. I always thought this was one piece but is apparently a two piece item.

  13. What's the most gas you've pumped in your GS

    Sweated the last 20 or so miles after the "low fuel level" light came on and message popped up on the screen. Pumped in 16.49 gallons of premium which is the most I've ever pumped in (I keep a log of all of my fill-ups). I guess the tank had another 1.51 gallons whether or not the fuel pickup...

    I'm at 55k miles on my 2012 GS and it looks like I have at least another 10k miles before I come close to the wear indicators. I like the RSAs but they are expensive with Tire Rack at $250+ for each.

    At what temp will the gauge move past 185? Is there a software upgrade which will allow the gauge to show the current temp? Doing a lot of stop-and-go traffic driving with air temps close to triple digits and worried that at some point the gauge with peg into the red without any warning.

  19. 2012 GS auto 35k miles intermitant check engine light

    Been getting check engine lights for no apparent performance issues. The light would come on, stay on for a couple of days, then disappear. Can't figure out what makes it come on. At first I thought it was coming on after hard acceleration but it also comes on with alight foot on the gas...
