World War II put a pause on Buick's production, but following the war the company got back on track. In 1948, Buick introduced Dynaflow, the company's first automatic transmission. The 1950s would also see the arrival of the Skylark, a convertible sedan with V8 power and a 12 volt electrical system. Despite the Skylark's presence, the second half of the '50s saw Buick hit a slump and sales dropped. But in 1959, Buick started to rebound. The Roadmaster was renamed the Electra and also restyled. That same year, the Buick LeSabre debuted, giving the brand two strong models to open up the next decade. Sales had been erratic on and off since the war, but thanks to models like the Riviera, Gran Sport, and Regal, Buick managed to enjoy steady success throughout the '60s. The 1970s bought on the oil crisis, with drivers from coast to coast turning their backs on powerful gas-guzzling sleds in favor of smaller, more economical sedans. Buick tried to adapt accordingly by developing cars that fit the times more appropriately.
Tradition, class, and value are what set this company apart from the rest, and not only do they know it, but their drivers recognize it as well. Buick has always employed a number of characteristics and parts that are unique: the infamous "Dollar Grin" grille, the polarizing V8 "Nailhead", and of course, the declarative "Tri-Shield" logo. Buick Accessories embrace the fabric of this notion with tasteful and eclectic upgrades. Injecting your own touch of fashion and personality into your model is a vital piece in maintaining the style and comfort that makes your car special to begin with. At CARiD, we take that concept to heart, which is why we insist on hosting the highest quality inventory of Buick Accessories and Parts available.

Buick has been around for over a 100 years, providing drivers with a solid combination of luxury and dependability. Founded by David Dunbar Buick in 1903, the first Buick car to be completed was the two-cylinder Model B a year later. 1907 saw the arrival of the first Buick to boast a four-cylinder engine, the Model D. William C. Durant purchased the Buick Motor Company soon after to become part of General Motors. Throughout the next decade, Buick cars and these auto parts began to establish their own identity. Buick models began being assembled with six-cylinder engines and by the roaring '20s, four-wheel disc brakes were standard on most of the lineup, making Buick the first automaker to offer them on a wide scale. The 1930s saw Buick begin to develop cars with 8-cylinder engines and also introduce the first rear-flashing turn signal. 1936 ushered in the Roadmaster, one of Buick's most celebrated models. Available as a sedan, coupe, station wagon, and convertible, the Roadmaster would go on to become one of the brand's most important models and help solidify the roster throughout the next two decades.
As the '80s settled in, Buick's lineup consisted of holdovers such as the Regal and Electra along with new vehicles including the Grand National and GNX. Sales climbed and then fell towards the latter part of the decade. Buick was starting to see increasing competition from foreign brands like Lexus and BMW. In 2001, Buick received a big lift thanks to the Rendezvous, the marque's first SUV. The crossover Rendezvous did its job, just about instantly reinvigorating Buick's sales in the process. However, by 2005, there was talk of GM looking into eliminating Buick altogether to save money. Instead, the brand rebounded once again with the LaCrosse, a combination of the Century and the Regal. The Buick Lucerne, a full-size luxury car, replaced both the LeSabre and Park Avenue. Buick's plan was to improve on previous models through consolidation. The plan worked. The Enclave rolled off the line 2007 for the 2008 model year and was a hit right from the start. Currently, Buick offers a small lineup of vehicles directed at providing luxury and comfort while appealing to a more youthful demographic than ever before.

Buick: 24 Months Of Sales Gains
September is the 24th consecutive month in which Buick's sales increased compared to the year prior. The brand achieved the milestone owing to the fuel-efficient vehicles featuring the eAssist technology. The eAssist technology is essentially a mild-hybrid, gas-electric powertrain for big Buick sedans, which is combined with automatic start/stop and regenerative braking. Developed to increase fuel efficiency, it uses a 15-hp electric motor to assist the driver during acceleration. The system comes standard on the 2012 Buick LaCrosse and is priced as the V-6 gas model. Year over year, Buick's retail sales grew 4%, and the total sales climbed 6%. Last month, the brand's retail sales grew 24%, with total sales up 23% year to date. Buck managed to outsell Acura, Audi, Infiniti, Lincoln, and Lexus. The big gainer was the Buick Regal with 3,325 units sold last month (87.2% up). Sales of the Buick Enclave grew 9% to 4,868 vehicles, while the LaCrosse wasn't that lucky last month facing the sales decrease of 8.5% (4,338 units sold). Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president of Buick Sales and Service, mentioned in the interview posted on Buick web-site that with the Verano, Regal GS and eAssist models joining the lineup this fall, the brand is expected to continue the growth.Jan 11, 2013
Buick to Offer Its 2012 Lineup with IntelliLink
Buick has announced that the owners of its 2012 models will have the possibility to enjoy the company's latest development. Tony DiScale, vise president of marketing for the U.S., introduced Buick IntelliLink to the general public. The presentation was held during the off-site event at the 2011 New York International Auto Show. “Today’s tech-savvy consumers expect more from their cars’ infotainment systems,” said Tony DiSalle. “They want a system that allows them to customize their in-vehicle experience with smartphones and other portable media devices. The availability of IntelliLink on every Buick sedan in 2012 and every Buick model in 2013 takes connectivity and media personalization to a new level.” The 2012 Verano will be the first Buick's car with this system on board. Also the 2012 Regal and LaCrosse will further join the new compact sedan. Buick IntelliLink connects to a driver's smartphone via USB or Bluetooth to a high-resolution touch screen display radio. A smartphone receives commands via voice activation and controls, located on a steering wheel. IntelliLink features a number of popular apps, including Stitcher SmartRadio and Pandora Internet Radio.Jan 10, 2013
Buick Moves Toward America’s Top Luxury Brand TitleCustomer reviews:
It's been a while since Buick was seen as a serious competitor on the U.S. automotive market, but it appears that the brand has something to celebrate, at last. In February Buick managed to outsell Lexus, as well as Audi, Acura and Mercedes-Benz. In fact, Buick is now the second most popular luxury car maker after BMW and it seems the domestic elder is not going to stop there. Buick sold 15,807 vehicles in February, up 73.3 percent from the same month of the last year. It’s only 800 X3 units that allowed BMW to outrun Buick. What’s really impressive is that Buick has managed to achieve this success with only four vehicles in its lineup: the Enclave, LaCrosse, Lucerne and Regal. In 2010, Lexus was the top luxury car maker and outsold Buick by a 70,000 unit margin. The situation is reverse this year with Buick outselling Lexus for two months in a row. Back in the mid-20th century, Buick was seen as a brand for white-collar professional, a niche it lost to Lexus more than 20 years ago. With a fresh lineup Buick seems to be reclaiming the mid-luxury market. The company is also reportedly plans adding a convertible, coupe, station wagon and a compact crossover to the lineup, which will make it even more difficult for Lexus to take back its number one place from Buick.Jan 09, 2013

Buick Looks Good - by Jose Maldonado, Jan 05, 2013
4/ 5starsI really like how they look, but the design is poor. The bulb is very bright, but if you look at the standard bulb, it;s designed to reflect the light upwards and in doing so, you get the beam of the headlamp in front of the vehicle. With this bulb, you just get the really bright white light but no beam reflections due to its design. if you want your headlamps to look bright, this bulb is perfect; but if you want the headlamp to reflect forward like your normal bulb would, you will not like these bulbs.
