  1. Anyone Use Carvana, Carmax etc to Sell?

    While I love my Regal Turbo - and it's manual transmission - I am going to moving on after nearly 10 years and 94K miles. The car has been relatively problem free. I am either going to sell the car myself or use one of the services like Carmax, Carvana, Vroom. To test pricing, all the services...
  2. Water in rear door

    I was driving yesterday and notices the sound of sloshing water in turns. Today, I went to put a coat in the back seat and when opening and closing the rear passenger door that I hear water sloshing about. I am going to look for drains on the door bottoms tomorrow to see if there is a clog. I...
  3. Any Opel Parts Suppliers in Europe?

    Does anyone have a recommendation of Opel parts suppliers in Europe? I continue having an issue locating a parking brake cable for my 2011 Regal built at the Russelsheim plant. GM has not been helpful as the part has been out of stock for 4-6 months and my dealer can get no ETA on when it will...
  4. Rear Wheel Locked Up - Need insight

    A few weeks ago, I pulled out of my driveway only to notice roll resistance as I backed out and took off. Then, as I turned the corner to find a spot to pull over, the wheel skipped through the turn (out wheel not able to turn as fast as inner). I checked the rear right rotor and it was...
  5. P0010 - Safe to Drive? Cannot get service until after the holidays

    I am seeing a check engine light this afternoon. Contacted OnStar and they said it is a P0010 code, which I believe I had several years ago too. They said not to stress the engine and to have serviced within 1-2 days. Issue is I contacted my normal dealer and they said their next appointment is...
  6. Could be end for our Verano?

    Got rear-ended today at a stoplight by a semi. We both were at a standstill but he thought the light had changed to green and he hit the gas. Only thing is the left turn lane turned green (not our lane) and I was still stopped and waiting for the light to change. Quite a bit of damage - buckling...
  7. New Verano - Not Coming to US

    New Buick Verano Is Hot-Looking but Only for China, Not U.S. Some pics of the new Verano going on sale in the Chinese market. Quite attractive IMHO. A three cylinder would like not work here but a turbo four ....oh we tried that.. 😉 Unfortunately the turbo did not sell well but we love ours...
  8. Wagons becoming sexy?

    Or at least seem to be getting better press these days. Maybe others are figuring out their benefits. https://www.autoblog.com/2017/11/10/crossovers-vs-cladded-lifted-wagons-comparison-opinion/
  9. Philly Auto Show

    Was able to spend some time with the TourX at the Philly Auto Show. Good news is it seemed to have a fair amount of people looking at it and having serious discussion about it versus SUV and crossover options. I think it is a really good package with a lot to like. Only other wagons were the...
  10. Blown Speaker(s) / Discontinued Part - 2011 Regal

    I recently noticed the center speaker - in the dash - on my 2011 Regal sounded like it was blown. It was especially bad when having a mobile phone discussion as the Bluetooth appears to funnel the audio through that center speaker. I took it to the dealer only to be told, 'sorry, that part is...
  11. Verano Turbo 0-60

    https://www.zeroto60times.com/vehicle-make/buick-0-60-mph-times/ My wife has V Turbo and asked about 0-60 times as she is starting to think about her next car - and likes the pull of her Verano. I found this link which, if accurate, put it in some really good company as far as the Buick family...
  12. Key Fob Replacement - 2011 Regal

    My key fob for the 2011 Regal is self-destructing. Dealer said $174 for the replacement and programming. I understand you buy replacements at AutoZone or Amazon. Anyone gone that route? Any less costly? I assume you still have to find locksmith to cut it.
  13. WTF?? Badges no more?

  15. heated seat repair cost

    So my drivers heat was replaced early under warranty. Now, at 62K miles,, the passenger side has quit. I got a whopping estimate in excess of $1200 to repair. Over $600in parts and about the same in labor. I was floored. Does this seem correct?
  16. Theft Alert Message

    When my wife came out to her car this evening, the "Theft Attempted" alert with the exclamation point appeared in the DIC. It does not appear to be any damage or signs of tampering on the doors or windows. We hit the OnStar button to ask what this means and whether OnStar captures time-of-alert...
  17. Oil and service questions

    So, for the third time in about seven oil changes, my dealer shorted the fresh oil by 1 to 1.5 quarts. Picked the car up last night and on the way to work today the "low oil / add engine oil' warning came up. Checked the dipstick and nothing registered. How can it be so difficult to understand...
  18. TPM Question

    Is there something which needs to be reset on the tire pressure monitors, when rotating the tires, to indicate the position of the tire on the car? Reason is, I received a low pressure warning indicating the driver-side front is low on air when,in actuality, it was the driver-side rear that was low.
  19. Happy Anniversary

    Received the email from Buick wishing me a happy fourth anniversary. Time flies....I didn't even buy her a present! Maybe a new air freshener or will give a quick detail this weekend. :)
  20. No GPS

    My wife has a 2013 Verano with the Nav and Infotainment display. She took the car in for service on Saturday and now has on the upper right of the display - the word "GPS" with the red slash through it. Only thing the manual says is no satellite signal. She drove 100 miles+ yesterday so not...
