I would like to buy a Buick Cascada Premium convertible. The vehicle in question has 45,000 kilometers and was imported by a Quebec dealer. Is it a good purchase?
Since the Buick Cascada was not officially sold in Canada, this means that the car spent the first part of its life in the United States before arriving here. This isn’t such a problem, but it would be a good idea to check the car’s history to make sure it hasn’t been in an accident or its odometer has been rolled back.
You haven’t listed the selling price of the car, but it’s probably around $30,000 CAD. The fact that the car is so rare to us makes it worth selling instead of being uncertain for a long time, which can cost you money.
We asked GM Canada about parts availability for this model. They have confirmed to us that there is no problem in placing an order at this time. Technically, the Cascada is an Opel, derived from the Astra that was sold in Europe. Except at the same time, the German manufacturer left the chest of GM and was bought by PSA, which became. Stellantis soon.
If you plan to keep the car for a few years, maintenance should not be a problem. It’s more for very long term purchases (10+ years) where some parts can be harder to find.
In conclusion, if you bought this car and you don’t like any other convertible sold in our market, do yourself a favor, but still remember that it is a more uncertain purchase than Mazda MX-5 or a volkswagen beetleFor example.
