Limited Slip Blog goes to Detroit

Hours ago, we arrived in Detroit for the 2014 North American International Auto Show. Today’s ten-hour road trip covered over 600 miles and crossed four states. Buick was kind enough to provide a 2014 Verano Turbo for the trek. As we found out, the Verano turned out to […]
