  1. I may have missed the announcement, but what is your new toy?
  2. Congrats on the New 2017 Canyon Denali. I'm still in love with my 2015 Canyon SLT Crew Cab 4WD Long Bed. I stillget compliments on the Emerald Green Metallic paint
  3. Those beautiful Cadillac Fleetwood and Fleetwood Brougham models!! And the glory days of auto show displays... large signs, videos galore, and the variety of models on the floor. I wouldn't start going to the NY Auto Show until 1995, but I did go to the Philadelphia Auto Show starting in 1990 and a couple of times to the NJ Auto shows in Edison and Atlantic City in the mid '90s. These videos remind me of those times. Thanks for posting, Ninety Eight Regency!!
  4. Thanks for the info, Drew. Are oil changes easy to perform by oneself on the 3.5L V6? My son was in Motor Transport & Motor Pool in the UMSC, and he stated he would like to do his own oil changes. I'd too like to find a 3800 V6 powered car, but I've always had a soft spot for the Intrigue and as long as it's a reliable & dependable car, I'm okay going with the 3.5. I'm figuring two years of service and hopefully he'll be established in a career that he can get something newer on his own. We're going to see it Wednesday night. This is being sold by my Buick-GMC dealer and I know they'll let me take it to my local mechanic for an inspection.
  5. Looking at this 2001 Olds Intrigue Wednesday night: http://www.burnsbuickgmc.com/VehicleDetails/used-2001-Oldsmobile-Intrigue-4dr_Sdn_GL-Marlton-NJ/2894887623 This one has the 3.5L V6 Shortstar engine. Any known issues to be aware of?
  6. Thanks, all. My son's 1998 Regal LS with the 3800 V6 suffered the head gasket issue and was a costly repair (thankfully no other engine damage was caused). I'm glad to see post 2000 3800 V6 engines did not suffer from this problem. Down side is I've been so busy with work and the weather hasn't cooperated last weekend - both Buick Regals are sold. A local used car dealer just got in this 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix GT we're going to go check out tomorrow: http://southjersey.craigslist.org/ctd/5949307983.html Its a little more than I want to spend but it looks good from the pictures.
  7. Thanks all for your insight. The wife likes the dark gray one too. Something is drawing me to the tan one, maybe the rims? I plan to contact the seller of the gray one tomorrow. I know my son's '98 Regal LS with the NA 3800 V6 suffered from the head gasket issue and was an expensive repair job. Is this an issue with the 2001 and/or 2002 model years?
  8. From someone who has seen his work and personal life get busier and busier with less time for pleasure activities on forums, I can empathize. Good luck finishing the kitchen project! By the way, I had a 2017 Buick LaCrosse Essence loaner from my dealership for 24 hours back before Christmas. While I enjoyed the new LaCrosse and found the electronic shifter "cool", I found it sat too low to the ground compared to my wife's 2013 LaCrosse Premium I and wasn't as thrilled with the overall experience. I miss the blue ambient lighting and did not like the bright white ambient light and the fact that was less lighting was featured. I'll stick with the 2013 for a while
  9. My oldest son has been discharged from the USMC and is now back home. He's looking for employment in the law enforcement field and will need basic transportation. His mom and I are trying to help him get on his feet and have about $2k to spend on a car. Prior to entering the USMC in January, 2013, he had a 1998 Buick Regal LS that he loved. He asked me to find him another Buick Regal, if possible. I also found a 2002 Saturn SL2 nearby. Looking for feedback and insight on the following three cars: http://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/5928107734.html http://southjersey.craigslist.org/cto/5943857333.html http://philadelphia.craigslist.org/cto/5920936909.html Thanks!
  10. Notchback was 1988. Loved the look, there was one in my town that I'd drool over. I was in my mid-teens in the early '90s and wanted a '91 or '92 Trans Am GTA in the dark green with tan leather. I even rode my bike to the local Pontiac dealer in spring '91 just in time to see a new '91 T/A GTA come off a carrier. A salesman offered me the '91 brochure of the Firebird lineup that opened up to a full color mini poster of the dark green GTA. I still have that brochure all these years later
  11. I'm watching it, since the first episode premiered. The first 4-5 episodes were a little slow for me, but the last couple really picked up the pace. I'm not much of a TV watcher myself, but I do enjoy WW.
  12. Nope, that thought never occured to me! Thank you for the suggestion, dfelt. I have the Canyon with me at work today, so I'll try to remember tonight to check this out.
  13. No luck with Rock Auto, daves87rs. However, the four sites dfelt provided all had the part. Issue is not price of item but price of shipping!! It costs slightly more than the price of the part. I may just call the dealership to compare prices and go from there. I appreciate both of your feedback.
  14. Thanks for the reply and information, dfelt!! I'll check them out tonight.
  15. I'm in need of locating a new trim part for my wife's '13 Buick LaCrosse and don't want to visit the dealership. The trim part is for the trunk, it's the plastic cover for the right/passenger side hinge, as seen in the attached pictures. We bougth the car a year ago November 7th and the wife pointed out two weekends ago that the trim was missing. Of course the selling dealer (CarSense) said that their warranty ran out at 6 months and I should pursue this with GM/Buick under the balance of the factory warranty (I disagree, as the part's missing it did not break). Anyway, I'd appreciate suggestions on any GM parts online sources.
