mr lawson: Gen-X does not buy Buick.
IrateShadow: Millennials don't want or can't afford new cars. Seems like a waste to advertise to them.
FirstNationalBastard: Buick only survived the GM Brand purge because the cars are popular in China.Why they didn't keep Pontiac in the US and make the Buick a China-only nameplate, like Holden is in Australia, I'll never know. No one wants a Buick besides a group of people that will be dead in the next 15 years./fark GM.
Claude Ballse: If they want to change the people's perception of their cars, then perhaps work on engineering aspects. Don't try and simply make your cars "look" Japanese.
ManOfTeal: As a member of Generation X, I was raised on the notion that any car made in Detroit past say the early 70's were huge piles of cheaply made garbage and simply should not be considered as a reliable form of transportation. It's kinda hard to shake that when it has been pretty much ingrained in your mind since birth.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: Gen Y here...yes, I'll take one of these:[www.rpmgo.com image 470x287]
Fissile: Interestingly, Buick is big in China, I kid you not.....one of the best selling brands in China.
Cybernetic: I happily gave my ex-wife the Buick Rendezvous CXL as part of my divorce. I never did like that thing. It felt like a cheaply-made pretend version of a luxury SUV.
sethstorm: Grand_Moff_Joseph: Gen Y here...yes, I'll take one of these:[www.rpmgo.com image 470x287]When did Buick acquire BMW?Fissile:Interestingly, Buick is big in China, I kid you not.....one of the best selling brands in China.The Chinese farked up the entire Buick line so much that there is nothing American left of Buick. All you see are rebadged Opels or otherwise non-US designed & bland global cars.When I think of Buick, the GNX and later model Regals come to mind. Even the pre-Opel-Everything Lucerne would be acceptable.That said:How about GM just makes a US-only series of Buicks that have no global influence on their design? Then let the Chinese have the lesser lineup.
beta_plus: Hey UAW! Why not instead of stupid marketing campaigns you try making decent cars instead./GM cars are nice in China and Europe//guess what they don't have in those places///no, it's not unions in general - look at Germany////businesses like German unions because German unions aren't a bunch of jerks/people like cars made by German unions because they know that they don't suck
