This is not cool at all, but flogging this machine in China (and building it there) is part of what's going to save GM in the long run, so all power to them.

I'd have to say cool. Only because Buick's still labeled as old people brand, although it's getting better. But it looks so good inside and out. Buick still gets customers and I'm really hoping that maybe. Just maybe the OPC/VXR version of the Insignia can come here as the GNX. Just maybe.

Looks like an updated chevy aveo with a buick badge on it. Expect to see thousands of 2011 buick regals at a Hertz or Avis near you!

You think so? Considering the fine cars Hertz rents out to its customers, I think it'll be a fine addition to their collection.








It's still going to be the best car in its class. Not the leprosy-faced Acuras or the rebadged Camry that Toyota keeps spewing out.

Not that bad, I would hesitate but it's not uncool IMO.

It says alot about the Vectra that the last version was only a Satyrn in the US, and the new version is a buick.

Best GM vehicle in the US for years (Corvette aside). I think it's cool.
