I got a nice little chuckle when I was behind a truck with this sticker this morning.

Around here, it's Subarus hands down (unless it's a WRX, then it has a really loud exhaust and drives like a bat outta hell).

Grand Marquis/Crown Vic/Lincoln Towncar

True if piloted by a senior citizen.  But if it's a livery driver behind the wheel, fall in behind it.  That bad boy will be moving.

For me, it's gotta be anything Volvo.  The same acute concern for safety that drove them to buy a Volvo seems to extend to the driving of the Volvo once they own it.

Worst drivers are Prius and CRV.

Buick makes some sport calls like the regal turbo and used to have the grand national. Can't lump all Buick categories together.

Old people behind the wheel. But when it comes right down to it, do you really want them driving any faster?

We have a saying around my hometown, “Don’t get behind an old man or an old truck. Never get stuck behind an old man driving an old truck. Turn around if you’re behind an old man driving an old truck and he has a hat on!”

Pretty rural out here, so this happens quite a bit.

Outta my way, or atleast let me pass! I need to get a large bucket in before my round! (Never late for a tee time, just want plenty of warmup time) :)

The Grand National may have been the greatest sleeper car of the 80s.  Neat concept and good execution on that one.

The new regal GS looks decent, 300+ hp and not that expensive with a good AWD system.

Buick's a funny company because the Encore and the Regal have some legit personality but i'm not sure why anyone buys anything else they make. Even within GM there are more appealing options on the same platform

It surprises me Buick still exists.  Seems the headline make and premium brand is safe for the (formerly) big 3, but for everything else cost efficiencies are the concern.

I imagine Cadillac and Lincoln are safe.  Maybe Chrysler if the new minivan (Pacifica) sells.

But Mercury, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac - all gone.

For the love of Burt Reynolds' mustache - how do you kill off the Excitement Division.

I'm a GM guy pretty much (wife has an Equinox, father in law has a cadillac and they have a second equinox, i drive a buick), and i am looking at newer models.

It's tough to really see the differentiation in brands. Like does it really matter if you get a GMC Terrain or an Equinox? Does the Chevy Trax need to exist or can't you just have an entry level Encore? Why do the Tahoe, Yukon and Escalade all need to exist?

There's really too many models to choose from

Au contraire, mon frere.  :D  My Volvo is rarely outside of the left lane.  T6 is a brilliant motor!

Now that I think of it, my garage contains two notorious slow-poke cars -- a Volvo wagon and a Lincoln.  But those two cars have three turbos and they are both properly quick!
