It is nice to see Buick gaining ground again. It looks like Buick and Americans have come full circle.

It might be a good car, but 40 grand for any car is too much, especially in this economy.

It is a premium luxury car. 40 grand is right on target.

The price is comparable to its competition. I would buy this vehicle.

Either one would do me just fine.
They're both good automobiles.

Lexus sales are dead. If “if” lexus was such a great car, then why don't they sell?

Houston, we have a problem.

A Buick is better than a "Lexus" or
"Luxury Export USA" any day.

Buicks were on the road pratically 80 years before a plain boring Lexus came from the copy masters.

Talk about a morning laugh; take a look at fledging lexus sales.

That should be enough to make anyone laugh.

In Germany there are no Lexus, Cadillac, and certainly not a Buick (those aren't allowed on autobahns). Over here our normal cars are BMW and Mercedes and they are considered luxury cars in the U.S. market.

However outside of Germany Lexus is the best luxury vehicle. I didn't even know Buick still made cars, I thought GM shut it down when Oldsmobile had its viking funeral.

What are fledgling sales? In Germany we translate that as "new" sales. Did you mean "flagging" sales?

I think Lexus not sell well because the cars are so good, like BMW and Mercedes. People drive them long time. When people buy Cadillac or Buick or Lincoln they need to replace them much much sooner. That is why used Cadillac and Buick prices are so cheap, people know a major repair is right around the corner.

The U.S. found a way to put a man on the moon but can't figure out how to build a Cadillac where the bumper don't fall off. I heard that from funny American comedian.
