Buick’s made a name for itself by offering entry-level vehicles at near-mass market vehicle prices. Now, with Buick sedan sales falling, the offers are about to get even better. With consumers turning to crossovers amidst low gas prices, fuel-efficient sedans and coupes are left on lots. In an effort to move more sedans, Buick has dropped the price of the midsized Regal.

The largest cut in the 2016 Buick Regal’s price hit the highest trim, the GS. With the $3,300 reduction, the sedan comes in at $34,990. That isn’t the only price cut. Other trims are also dropping $1,000 to $2,500 in price for the 2016 model year.

“We have to take a step back and make sure we have the basics right,” said Duncan Aldred, head of the Buick brand in the US. “The Regal pricing was out of line.”

There’s still time for Buick to refresh and retool its United States lineup though. China is the brand’s largest market. Over 919,000 vehicles were sold in the country in 2014 alone. In the United States, the number of Buicks sold in 2014 fell under 230,000.

We here at Paul Sur Buick GMC are proud to see Buick taking a fresh look at the US lineup to offer customers a better deal than ever before!

Inflating Your Tires is Beneficial

Check your tire pressure! It’s important!

There’s quite a bit of maintenance you can do yourself if you have a simple set of tools and mechanical knowledge. Some of the maintenance doesn’t even require much mechanical knowledge. It doesn’t have to be a tune up or repair to improve how efficiently or cheaply your car runs. We here Paul Sur Buick GMC are here to tell you the benefits of inflating your tires!

First, inflating your tires provides better traction to the pavement. As a result, you’ll have more control behind the wheel. This alone increases safety and reduces the likelihood of an accident.

Second, proper tire inflation slows how quickly your tires wear down. As a result, you can keep more money in your pocket over the life of your car as you won’t need a new set as often. As an added bonus, properly inflated tires will also reduce the chance of bad wear patterns, when part of the tire wears down faster than the rest.

Lastly, keeping your tires at the optimal pressure can increase your fuel economy. As any driver knows, fueling up is a major cost to consider when buying a car. With properly inflated tires, you can go a little farther before stopping at the nearest gas station.
