This isn't your grandfather's Buick.

"This is just silly," I said as I laughed my way sideways around the icy track at Circuit ICAR, a racecourse, drag strip and kart track at the Montreal-Mirabel International Airport in Quebec. It wasn't the activity that had me cracking up, though. After all, winter driving experiences aren't uncommon in this business.
A few months ago I drove the 2014 Buick LaCrosse and wrote up a First Drive review of it. For all of my quibbles with that sedan (and I had a fair number), I understand that it speaks to the heart of what new Buick loyalists like in a car; it's roomy, has a cushy ride and is as placid as a summer's morning at highway speeds.

Does it matter to you how happy other people are with their cars and trucks? Marketing experts often say that word-of-mouth endorsement from those in our social circles are more influential than advertising. It makes sense. So, perhaps the somewhat surprising findings of a new study on customer satisfaction might influence your thinking. It is based, after all on surveys filled out by car owners about how happy they are with their cars.
