Buick hopes 'Truth' site will set it free, help launch Regal

/article/20100621/RETAIL03/306219992

I'm suddenly thinking of Jack Nicholson's line, "You can't handle the truth!"

The truth for Buick is that the line has, in 10 years, gone from six models (Roadmaster, Park Avenue, Le Sabre, Riviera, Regal and Century) to two, Lacross ("sorta like a Lexus E350") and the Enclave (a GMC Acadia with leather seats), and plans for the new Regal, which is just a tarted-up Opel Insignia (can you say Catera?).

If GM plans to make a go of Buick, it needs to get serious about offering a product the public wants to buy. Otherwise, it will become just another fallen flag on GM's now growing mountain of fallen flags.
