Well they certainly restyled this car. It does look better than the previous model and the interior doesn't look too bad. A few things though. A) Please don't tell me that the back of the front seats are hard plastic like they look in the pics I've seen. B) Please don't tell me that they kept the same engines from the previous models. C) Also, please tell me that they went to AT LEAST a 6-speed transmission. D) Hopefully it handles better than a tugboat.

Those are just a few of my gripes with Buick.

Well GEE...what a shocker! Sales aren't up yet...THEY JUST STARTED TO RESHAPE THEIR IMAGE. Jesus...give it some time.

They are FINALLY putting out some good looking products that seem to be on par (styling wise) with the best of them. Their sales won't go up until people have confidence in their QUALITY and customer service.

But honestly...push button start/stop in a friggin BUICK?

Well you know when your average consumer is nearly 70 years old it gets harder and hard to turn a key in the ignition. lol! Although I like the push button start/stop. It's just a little more convenient and I don't have endless seconds to waste fumbling with my keys.:-)

I wouldn't know anything about it...my car isn't that technologically advanced. I still fumble for my keys.

I hope you didn't think that I was referring to you as a 70 year old technologically inferior person. I didn't mean that.:-)

My car isn't either, but I drove cross country in my friends car recently that is technologically advanced and it was a nice feature.

LOL...didn't take it that way at all. I have 3 more decades to complet before I get there (although my parents, who will be 75 and 70 drive a LeSabre!). I have a 6 year-old "non-American" car that was made in America. Go figure.
