Is the Buick associated being a old man vehicle......

That is why most Buicks you see are driven by old people.... Tiger Woods couldn't change that image either... I think that here in North America Buick is not youthful enough and old people won't carry it enough to have it survive here in Canada and the USA. China I know there is a market but can it stay alive here in our countries, I am not so sure........  (Oct 20, 2008 | post #3)

Would you leave your Asian vehicle and go back to GM,Ford or Chrysler.The domestics as you hear and read are improving,would you go back to owership of one of them or stay with your Asian vehicle...... Would you wait awhile to find out the results of how GM,Ford and Chrysler are doing in reliability for the long run like 3 to 5 years before you change brands..... Tell me what you think..........  (Oct 20, 2008 | post #1)
