Carol asks…

What is with luxury cars these days?

The last car my dad had before he died was a 2001 BMW X5 4.4i, and that thing had so much wood trim it wasn’t even funny. Now, if you look at the ’06 Lincoln LS, which my mom owns, it has some trim on the steering wheel, above the glovebox, and that’s it. The rest is just gaudy aluminum, which many high-end cars are now sporting. Also, there is a big decrease in material quality. WHY?

Administrator answers:

I own a repair shop,and i have noticed it a lot on some of the higher end cars also like the jags and merc,s all of them are doing this,i think when one stumbles they all follow,but the truth of it is there trying to make them more simple but more luxurious,and its not working ,they look to plain looking to me,like they have lost all there glitter they used to have,i seen the inside of a new Lincoln.and its kind of plain looking but the price tag wasn’t plain ,i don’t think people are getting as much car for there money as they was, they might be safer,but the looks and quality of the trim work is going down hill,and on some of the smaller cars there’s is going up,like the high end compacts,but it is noticeable ,and yet people seem to not care,there still going to buy them,no matter what,good luck,i hope this help,s.

Lizzie asks…

Labour time for rear seat entertainment?

Does anyone know what’s the standard labour time (if there is one) to install a complete rear seat entertainment kit for a Bmw X5?

Administrator answers:

Usually takes a day (8 hours), but call for estimates.

Donald asks…

Why should anybody buy a Chevrolet Traverse over a Buick Enclave?

The Buick Enclave is definitely one of the most elegant SUVs I have ever seen and plan to buy. Esthetically it has a lot more going for it than comparably sized German models (Audi Q7, BMW X5, Mercedes GL and VW Touareg) and Japanese makes (Lexus LX).

What sense does it make for GM to now introduce the Chevy Traverse. It looks like a bare-bones Enclave.

Administrator answers:

Price. Styling.

Not everyone can afford a Buick Enclave and not everyone appreciates all the chrome that comes on the Buick Enclave. The same goes for the GMC Acadia. For these people there is the Chevrolet Traverse. It’s GM’s interpretation of the minivan.

Buick Enclave competes with luxury Crossovers/SUVs like the ones you mentioned and it beats them. Chevrolet Traverse competes with regular crossovers/SUV’s like Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Flex, etc.

The two vehicles compete in two completely different market segments. If any vehicle doesn’t make sense I’d say it’s GMC Acadia, because it doesn’t fit the brand profile (Professional Grade) and it somewhat competes with Enclave (luxury crossover/suv) even more so with the new Denali trim.
