We’ve heard the story before. You came to DeVoe Buick GMC for your scheduled test drive of that Buick you’ve had your eye on for the past few months.
Unfortunately, it’s been one of those days: you were late to pick up the kids from summer camp, which also meant you were late to her doctor’s appointment and his swim practice. Of course, that made you 20 minutes late for your test drive appointment and your mind is everywhere but focused on the luxurious vehicle you now get to drive for only 40 minutes before you have to retrace your steps and pick up the kids.
While it doesn’t take long to fall in love with a Buick, the automaker recognizes that it helps to be able to spend more time with the vehicle, especially when that time is relatively free of stress and you can enjoy driving. That’s why the 24-hour test drive program not only allows you to drive through your everyday routine during that 24 hours; it also provides participants with advice on reducing stress and experiencing the happiness that comes from driving a Buick.
Exclusive online content is available to promote a happy driving experience, including a recipe for a custom in-car fragrance, basic yoga exercises for a relaxing ride, and more.
Go ahead. Forget about your almost-missed test drive and add the Buick 24-Hours of Happiness Test Drive to your schedule as soon as possible.
Buick took home three Kelley Blue Book 2014 5-Year Cost to Own awards last week, demonstration lower-than-average ownership cost than similar vehicles on the market.
The list was compiled using Kelley Blue Book® Residual Values, a sophisticated valuation methodology that draws from critical financial data from third-party providers. The goal is to calculate depreciation costs, expected fuel costs, finance and insurance fees, maintenance and repair costs, and state registration fees—helping KBB’s readers to garner a good understanding of which cars are most likely to give them the most bang for their buck.
This year, the Buick Verano, Encore, and Enclave were undoubtedly those that delivered the biggest bang for their customers’ buck, coming out ahead in the entry-level luxury, luxury compact SUV/crossover, and luxury full-size SUV/crossover categories, respectively.
“Buick puts the customer first, not only offering a great portfolio of vehicles, but maintaining quality and dependability long after the vehicle is purchased,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick marketing.
The 2014 Buick LaCrosse and the 2014 Buick Enclave, both of which are new additions to our lineup here at DeVoe Buick, are on sale until December 2nd thanks to the Black Friday Sales Event! Skip all the lines and crazy people at the mall and treat yourself to an early Christmas present at DeVoe this year.
The 2014 Buick LaCrosse (pictured below) will get your from A to B in style and comfort. Featuring a fresh new look and easy-to-use tech features, we think the LaCrosse is easily one of the top sedans available today.
The 2014 Enclave also is sporting a new look and whole bunch of new features ranging from the industry first front center airbag, to the Buick Intellilink system. Check out the picture below to see what it looks like, and be sure to stop by DeVoe Auto anytime to take either one of these beautiful new vehicles out for a test drive. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised once you see how much Buick has stepped up its game, and even more surprised when you see the price tag. But don’t wait too long- these offers expire December 2nd!
Let’s face the facts. Driving can be very dangerous! You never know when someone is going to be hanging out in your blind spot, or when somebody left their bike right in the middle of the driveway. That’s why the engineers over at Buick have developed several safety features that help you, well, see things you wouldn’t normally be able to see.
The blind spot is the perfect example. You simply cannot see your blind spot (hence the name). So that’s why the new Buick Enclave has a blind-spot indicator that will warn you when someone is in that area next to your car.
The rear vision camera is another feature on the Enclave that allows you to see where you normally would not be able to.

At the reveal of the 2013 Buick Enclave, Buick’s VP of Marketing Tony DiSalle had a few words to say about how far the Enclave has come over the years. According to DiSalle, “We sold more Enclaves last year than we ever have before. That told us that consumers are continuing to discover this wonderful vehicle.” Di Salle goes on to say, “The 2013 Enclave is absolutely gorgeous. You can see the sophisticated elegant exterior and beautiful sculptured design, evolving the design that really brought the renaissance of the Buick brand home with the introduction of the first Enclave 5 years ago.” Check out the video below to see it for yourself:
The 2013 Buick Enclave has not yet arrived to our Buick GMC store, but keep checking our blogs and Facebook and we’ll be sure to let you know when it’s here!
