    what's your true age? (I'll say in the decades or somewhat, since I know you don't want to do years :p) It can't be 80, so I'm curious.

    OR MAYBE YOU'RE ACTUALLY AN OLD FAN. THAT'S…AWESOME

    Somewhere in the 25-35 range. So I'm an "older" fan if not quite a senior citizen.

    When I watched Top Gear recently, they made a comment about the LeSabre (don't remember what year) being a really cruddy car. Why would you think they'd say that? Is there a year where Buick did badly?

    Do you think Rosa is the cutest protagonist in Pokemon since Leaf?

    Hmmm... well, first ones that come to mind would be the '86-'91 LeSabre models (and the closely related '85-'90 Electra). Now supposedly (if you believe Consumer Reports) they were good cars for their time, but they looked like small economy cars and not the full size cars that the LeSabre typically is. And they indeed were the smallest LeSabre models ever produced. Before then, in the early 1980's, GM had a bad habit of sticking engines under the hoods that didn't belong, in the interest of fuel economy. If you got an early 80's LeSabre with the gas V-8, you got a good car, but if it had the V-6, it simply wasn't powerful enough for a vehicle of its size. And if it had GM's experimental diesel engine of that time, that thing had all manner of major mechanical problems.

    Now, I can't say that I like the new styling direction of Buick, or the fact that they've done away with all their big cars, but I do have to admit that their current lineup are among their best-performing models to date (my parents bought their smallest model, the Verano, last month, and while it is a bit tight inside, it's quite a nice car).

    Of course, anyone expecting their car to perform like an exotic sports car is likely to be disappointed with any Buick not called the Grand National or GNX.

    Yes indeed. She narrowly edges out Dawn/Hikari. But then came the new X/Y female protagonist... Time (and more screenshots and official Sugimori artwork) will tell, but the new girl might even give Leaf a run for her money o_0
