Why are Buick cars so quiet?
The modern lineup of Buick vehicles that is available for purchase or lease at Don Wheaton takes full advantage of all available technology. This means infotainment options like the Buick IntelliLink system, featuring a number of different functions including hands-free calling using Bluetooth capability and turn-by-turn navigation information. All of these 21st century innovations simply add to the over all outstanding experience of owning a Buick sedan. One element that has remained the same in the 100-plus years of Buick production is the nearly silent interior that is evident today. This begs the question, ‘Why are Buick cars so quiet?’
There is no single reason why Buick sedans remain some of the most quiet vehicles on the road today. However, one major reason they have such a quiet interior is because of the tires used on all of the Buick vehicles available at Don Wheaton. Just like so many things in the automotive world, tire design and construction has evolved along with the vehicles themselves. Designing a tire is more than melting some rubber and shaping it into something you might find at Tim Horton’s. The very formula of the rubber, tread design and manner in which the steel belts are installed can all play a part in reducing or increasing road noise from the tires.
Buick engineers also take a few other steps in making their SUVs and sedans so quiet on the inside. Many of these are more aggressive steps like heavily insulated doors and using a special material for the headliner that absorbs sound. Some Buick vehicles also use active noise cancelling. This automated system, built by Bose, uses computers to produce a sound that is exactly opposite frequency of the sound coming in from the outside to cancel it out.
