ok
Buick Mechanic: Roy Belding, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I would go with the northstar engine with the options. good engine set up. make sure you have it checked out well and certified by a gm dealer. with the mileage I would also get an extended warranty on the powertrain as well. good insurance in case of a major issue in the future.

you dont think for only $1000 more the 2011 or the 3.9 would be more reliable? But I sure would miss all of the extra equipment
Buick Mechanic: Roy Belding, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

I like all the toys and the northstar. the 3.9 is ok but it is a version of the old 3.4 which had a lot of issues with head gaskets and lifters and coolant leaks. my personal feelings based on my experience with the motors.

thanks I also like the power of the northstar. The 3.9 seemed like it was really underpowered
Buick Mechanic: Roy Belding, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

it definitely is under powered. go for it
