Bought this back in Feb. 2018. It had 68K miles on it. I got if from the original dealership which is now Bucik/GMC. The orignal owner had the oil changed every 3k miles at the same dealership until he traded it in for one of the new Buick convertibles. It seemed like a no brainer purchase. Things went great for just under 3,000 miles when at a stoplight the engine just stopped. No dash light, no smoke, steam, nothing. Had it towed to the dealer. Turns out it's a blown engine. I don't have the exact cause of the failure yet, but after much wrangling with the after market warranty company, the dealer is installing a brand new GM engine. Seems now the engine alone is worth more than the rest of the car. Anyway, I'm hoping to get it back in about 10 days. Hopefully, more pictures then.
