  1. The female side of the lighter does have a small bit off rust forming and so does the actual lighter. Bottom connections have a very small amount of corrosion too. Looks like the previous owner spilled something. Thanks guys. And Ronnie I’ll check that out too. 

  2. This isn’t anything too crazy. But I think I may have some issue with my cigarette lighter on my 91. Basically whenever I have my phone plugged in charging it takes forever to to charge. Also makes the radio have static. And when I try to use the actual lighter it doesn’t glow. Fuse is good. Just wondering if anyone else have had had this problem before. 

  3. I agree that your local Buick dealer would probably be easiest. I had mine make a set with the other set. There is a guide online somewhere of which resistance is which number key. But they should know that. 

  4. The sapphire blue with red would have looked cool too. I’d love to fine one of the four driftwood and red cars If any are still around. There was so much potential for cool combos. A shame more didn’t happen. 

  5. It’s a Buick too.  By having the reputation as an old mans car doesn’t help the brand in general. I haven’t met anyone else remotely my age outside of BCA events that even knows what this car is. And even at those events they seem to be overlooked. I’ve been the only reatta at every car show I’ve went to except one. My most asked question is “what’s that?”  I only found out about this car because of when Buick introduced the cascade and some article I read mentioned that it was the first convertible in 25 years. I looked up what that was and found out about these. I don’t know if I would have even gotten into these if I didn’t read that article. 

  6. I live my 91. The reatta is a bit of a weird car lots of parts that are specific to it. Thankfully the drivetrain GM put in a ton of other cars so no real issues there. There a ton of good info down on the  reatta section here. There’s also a good group on Facebook with a lot of info.

    I'm still pretty sure a Regal TourX wagon will be my next car. I think I'd like a white one. Was going to pull the trigger this spring and replace my aging CTS wagon, but with the pandemic thing, I couldn't justify it. I still want one, though. If they kill it before I'm able to make the purchase, I'll still probably buy a used one coming off lease.


    My reason for buying this car is nothing more than I'm a wagon guy and I like how it looks.

    It seems they’re practically giving them away I saw an ad for one on Facebook with 1500 miles for 20k. I just wish it was a colum shift. And could have interior colors other than black or tan.

  8. Buick is discontinuing their sedans and wagons after the 2020 model year so I feel that big GM wants them to be a China only company. I’d consider a new wagon if I could get it with more options of colors. Shades of grey aren’t really my thing. Also I genuinely don’t think GM want to make cars anymore they aren’t really that compete with the foreign brands in that respect. I don’t think it’s that sedans and wagons don’t sell well. GM just isn’t putting in the effort to sell them.

  9. One thing with all this talk of colors and color combos is that I’d rather have all these crazy and weird things available compared to now where there’s five exterior colors and two interior colors available for almost all new cars. Gm seems think that the transition from white to black with maybe red and blue is enough. And god forbid you want anything other than black or tan and black interiors.
