  1. GM division ties Lexus for top quality

    Buick has always had a reputation for terrific quality and has consistently scored well on quality surveys through the years. In fact, it’s something that many of us around here have thought Buick should take better advantage of in its advertising and marketing. So the recent J.D. Power and Associates announcement didn’t come as a huge surprise, but it is still good news for Buick: It tied Lexus for first place in Power’s vehicle-dependability study.

    The study surveys 53,000 owners of three-year-old vehicles. Power said it is the first time any brand has tied Lexus for the No. 1 ranking.

    Buick and Lexus were tied with 145 problems per 100 vehicles. The industry average is 216. Cadillac, Mercury and Honda rounded out the top five. (Autoweek)
  2. +1 Buick.
  3. Maybe it's because the demo of Buicks has traditionally been 80 year olds?
  4. Every time a quality study is done the results shift around dramatically. I've seen Mazda at #2 in reliability in other studies, and it's crap in this one. I've seen Porsche range from top 5 to bottom 5. I'm pretty sure Consumer Reports once rated BMW and Mercedes as the 2nd and 3rd worst. I don't trust these reliability surveys. The only things they can agree on is that Land Rover is always dead last.
  5. BMW and Mercedes are the 2nd and 3rd worst. They haven't been building good cars since the late 80s
  6. Buick is shit.
  7. oh they're first all right...first to be chucked into the trash can
  8. you probably never even had a ride in a buick, so SFTU.
  9. I drove a Buick before, dumbass. It feels like you're driving in grandmas living room. It was designed for old people. Total turds.
  10. you drove a late model lesabre.
  11. Driving your car makes people listen to Falco.
  12. ZOMG 60 percent of the top 5 are American! That can't be right, since Americans can't make reliable automobiles.
  13. Driving his car sucks because it doesn't go anywhere.
  14. WRONG!
  15. Right. The opinion of truth.
  16. Norcal is #%$
  17. The only thing from Buick I like is the Enclave. But overall they are shit.
  19. Someday you'll be old too.
  21. I'll buy a Benz because I have taste.
  22. I read the article in the business section of the paper today & cracked up thinking about this thread..
  23. +1 for Buick now making quality cars...
