Should I buy a discontinued Buick?
"I'm thinking of buying a 2013 Buick LaCrosse sedan. But since this car has been discontinued, I'm worried that I'll have trouble finding parts for repairs down the line. Is this a legitimate concern, or is it okay to buy a discontinued car?
“A discontinued vehicle has some distinct advantages. In the case of a 2013 Buick LaCrosse sedan, you can probably get a better price than you would on a model that’s still in production.
You shouldn’t worry about parts, either. Not only does the automaker continue to make parts, but the quality of aftermarket parts has grown exponentially in recent years. And because the Buick is a GM product, chances are that many of its parts are still in production or you can use parts from other GM cars.
To boil it all down, if you like the discontinued car, buy it. Parts shouldn’t be an issue. “

How much do 21-year-olds in North Carolina usually pay for auto insurance?
