Once known for being the car your grandfather drove, Buick has been making bold statements lately with their design, technology, safety and overall luxury (you know, things that people of all ages can appreciate)

We’ve seen it here in the dealership ever since the redesigned Buick LaCrosse hit our showroom in 2010 and since then, Buick has been putting out vehicle after vehicle that is setting a new standard for affordable luxury.

The 2014 Buick Enclave, Encore & Verano each just won a KBB.com 5-Year Cost To Own Award.
