More Buick Models Get Limited Park Assist Availability15
Back in December, GM Authority reported that the 2022 Buick Enclave would have limited availability for the Front and Rear Park Assist feature. Now, GM Authority has learned that additional Buick models have been affected by limited availability of the Front and Rear Park Assist feature, as well as the Rear Park Assist feature.
The limited availability of Front and Rear Park Assist and Rear Park Assist is once again a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage. At present, it’s unclear if these features will be available for retrofit in the future, as is the case for Buick vehicles affected by limited availability of heated steering wheels and heated seats. It’s also unclear if affected models will come with a credit for customers.
Affected models include the 2022 Buick Encore GX. Starting with vehicles produced January 10th, some units of the 2022 Buick Encore GX will be built without the Rear Park Assist feature (RPO code UD7). Usually, Rear Park Assist is included and only available with the Safety Package (RPO code WPD) for the 2022 Buick Encore GX Preferred trim level. The feature is also included and only available with the Advanced Technology Package (RPO code WPA) for 2022 Buick Encore GX Select and Essence trim levels.
The limited availability also affects the 2022 Buick Envision. Starting with vehicles produced January 24th, some units of the 2022 Buick Envision will be built without Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD7) or Front and Rear Park Assist (RPO code UD5). Rear Park Assist is usually standard on 2022 Buick Envision Preferred and Essence trim levels, while Front and Rear Park Assist is usually included and only available with the Technology Package I (RPO code CXH) on Essence trim levels, and included as standard on the Avenir.
Check out the table below for a complete breakdown of which Buick models are now affected by limited availability of the Front and Rear Park Assist feature, as well as the Rear Park Assist feature:
|Model||Affected Trim Levels||Affected Units||Rear Park Assist||Front and Rear Park Assist|
|Buick Encore GX||Preferred, Select, Essence||Some units||X|
|Buick Envision||Preferred, Essence||Some units||X|
|Buick Envision||Essence, Avenir||Some units||X|

Mine was made in Mexico with alot of Chinese parts ! So what could go wrong .
The senior citizens will be happy about this. They are having a race to the Buick dealership now on there walkers.
Can’t remember the last time I sold a Buick to old folks. 35 to 45 would be about average
Not according to the stats online. Hate to break it to you but the average Buick buyer is 60.3 years of age. Don’t take my word for it look it up yourself.
If you reread my post I was referring to my experience.
Yes the average age of my Buick customers over the last few years has been in the 40’s. When Buick still sold the last generation of cars the seniors didn’t like them, it wasn’t the ride they expected. When the cars where dropped many younger folks started looking at the SUV’s.
Based on my experience and in my area that’s all my comment was, Feel free to continue to reuse the Buick’s are for old peoples jokes for as long as you want.
There’s nothing to joke about when that’s what the stats say.
You are 100% correct from a study done based on 2013 sales
6-13-2021 your off by 8 years.
Yes, the 60.3 age for Buick buyers is based on a 2013 survey. Please check your Google search again.
Avg. age of buyer: 60.3 years
2013 U.S. unit sales: 205,509″””” Source Market Watch
Recent CarMax study, 2018, has Buick average age as 45.6 – matching myeyeshurt’s anecdotal account.
As Buick is also considered a more premium line than most, one may expect it to skew a bit older as that demographic may have the resources for an Enclace Avenir and bypass on the basic Hyundai, which sports an average age 37.6.
The canard of “old folks” Buick died a decade ago.
Don’t use google sorry. No it’s not from 2013. Anyways it’s a new day let it go nobody cares
You are on the internet now that’s how you are on this website. It’s not complicated type in what is the average age of a Buick owner you can use any browser you want. Your welcome. Also it’s a new day hope you enjoy it instead of stressing things we talked about yesterday.
If you can’t provide a source to contradict their evidence then you look foolish.
If your eyes hurt then you should get off your phone or computer that’s not helping.
FWIW I was 52 when I bought my 2020 Regal GS. Love the car and only wish Buick still made cars. My next car will be a Cadillac if they still make ICE powerplants when I’m ready to buy again.
