Buick Literature

by George Nenadovich


Before buying a car, it is a good idea to get some background info on the particular car. Also, it is a good idea to visit/join a local Buick club in your area to meet fellow owners of the car you are interested in. They will be able to tell you particular problems associated with the car as well as what to look for when reviewing a car. They may also know of a car for sale that is not officially for sale or in the local Auto Trader or newspaper!
