Buick Safety Awards: All Six 2017 Models Get NHTSA Award

Buick is well known for its intelligent designs and impressive safety. In fact, all six 2017 Buick models earned a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Safety Administration—one of the most prestigious awards in the industry.  This is the third year in a row Buick has earned this significant achievement.

According to GM, Buick is only one of two brands in the industry to reach this achievement. The 2017 Cascada is also the first 2017 convertible to earn a 5-Star Rating. The LaCrosse also has some impressive safety features for the new model year, including sophisticated technologies, premium craftsmanship, and improved handling.

“We know safety is top of mind for buyers when shopping for new vehicles, and the recent ratings by NHTSA showcase our brand’s dedication to providing our customers with safe, reliable transportation,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “We’ve launched four new vehicles in 2016 and we are extremely proud to continue to offer a lineup of award-winning vehicles that have NHTSA five-star Overall Vehicle Score ratings across the board.”

Buick safety awards are well-deserved, especially considering the number to technologies the brand offers. This includes a Safety Alert Seat, Front Pedestrian Braking, and even a front-center airbag on the Enclave—the only offered in its segment. Stop by DeVoe to learn more about Buick safety systems.

Buick Has Increases in Consumer Satisfaction

Here at DeVoe Buick GMC, we’re always looking to make customers happy, and we like to think our customers leave the dealership satisfied. So, you can imagine how happy we were when a recent study found Buick customer satisfaction was on the rise.

Not only has Buick, along with Chevy, seen increases in consumer satisfaction in the last year, but those two brands are the only in the U.S. to see improvement, with the others either staying the same or decreasing.

The report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) tracks and compares 21 brands of automobiles.  The ACSI asks 4,360 consumers about their overall satisfaction and their experiences with their brand.

The report says, “A considerable investment in Buick appears to be paying off for General Motors. Sales are up 12.5 percent for the first half of the year – the largest increase for any GM car – led by a surge in sales for Buick Encore.”
