  1. FCA already has $2000 on the hood of the Pacifica

    Off-Topic
    I don't get why they went that direction with the ads. I like the Dodge ads and think they fit the image for Dodge. Chrysler is supposed to be the upscale brand, but these Pacifica ads do nothing to portray that image, let alone highlight the features of the vehicle.

    Besides the fact they have a quality stigma, I'm not too sure their TV ads are helping any. They are a nice looking van though.
  3. White Diamond

    Washing & Detailing
    That's it exactly. My white diamond LaCrosse is the same. The bumper is noticeably different than the fenders in good sunlight. It's the difference in the paint as well as the material being painted.

    Well, it really depends on how picky you are. Repaints never match the factory no matter what. And did you say the car is white? White and black are the hardest to match, moreso if it is a flake paint. A lot of restoration shops swear by painting a car with all of the panels on the body because...
  5. Rainy weather interfering with car washing

    Washing & Detailing
    I'd rather take 30 minutes to wash mine by hand then sit in line for 30 minutes to have the paint swirled at a car wash. :P
  6. Distracted driving!

    Off-Topic
    Reminds me of us driving back from a vacation several years ago and we almost had a collision with a big coke ice chest that fell off a truck in front of us. :o

    I highly recommend paying cash if you can afford to. Even though interest rates are low, paying a large chunk of cash helps you make more realistic choices with regards to how much you are going to spend on a car. For some it's a lot more real to decide if you want to spend that extra 2 grand on...
  8. Distracted driving!

    Off-Topic
    I've got two fun examples: Saturday we're on the way home on the highway when a kid no older than 20 passed us in the left lane playing with his phone, and five seconds later, cut in front of us because he was about to miss his exit. He was no more than 10 feet in front of us, so one mistake...
  9. Let's play name that car

    Off-Topic
    That doesn't surprise me. I get a magazine Hemmings Muscle Machines, and there are countless articles about specific cars where they recount the owner's car history around that period; and it seems every one of them would buy a new car at least every five years. Now it could have been because...
  10. Recommend Buick LaCrosse owner forum please--just bought one!

    Off-Topic
    Loving my 2011 LaCrosse (coming up on 2 years in September) so far. :cheers: Since it has basically the same engine as the Enclave, be ready for a possible leaky water pump. Just had mine replaced 200 miles before the btb was up.

    Just saw the latest dependability study from JD Power. Buick was 3rd. :thumb:
  13. were our parents more capable than we are

    Off-Topic
    What you just said confirms where we are today. It's about being "smart", not knowledgeable. Decades ago it was a luxury to be able to go to college to be "smart". Now, all kids are pushed to go to college to get a "good" job. You don't have to be "smart" to know how to change your oil, you just...
  14. were our parents more capable than we are

    Off-Topic
    Lot's of reasons to your question I'd say. Contrary to what a lot of the media likes to portray, I think we are a lot better off than our parents where. They didn't have the money, so they had to do a lot of things themselves. When it comes to skills, I suspect their parents either showed them...

    I think trade in values here in Michigan were around $10,500, which was about $1K less than private party. SUV's are possibly more popular (better resale) here than other parts of the country I'm guessing.

    Wow, what a hit on the trade! I got a little more than double that for ours in December selling it private party. That was right in line with KBB and NADA. It wasn't AWD either and had similar miles. It didn't have any accident history though.
  17. Enclave got keyed and one tire slashed!

    Off-Topic
    While that is probably true, a body shop job is not going to match the factory finish no matter how well it's done. That's why a lot of guys that paint classic cars will paint the car with the doors/hood/trunk on the body so everything matches. If they do it separate, even with the same...
  18. Surprisingly hot looking Buick!!

    Off-Topic
    Hmm, googling images, it looks like the White Frost might be similar to the White Diamond, but maybe a little more white. The only thing I don't care for with my white diamond Lacrosse is that on overcast days it looks a bit like a dirty white.

    Washing & Detailing
    Man, that looks like failed clearcoat, but it's hard to tell from the picture.

    Did you mean "still" and option, because it is now.
