Well, a lot of things had done wrong with it.
Power steering never worked on this car - we always drove it like that. It's extremely hard to do such a thing, but it transforms your arms :).
Rust, rust and more rust.
Inside materials fall off easily.
Engine leaks oil.
At first the car worked perfectly and nothing went wrong. Everything started to go wrong after I started abusing it.
After 150k or so, the windows don't roll down, just small issues.
This car is unbelievable. I bought this car in Oklahoma and took it to my native Mexico. Like I said, it was perfect for the first year, then I started to abuse the car. And with that I do mean abuse.
It's not a 4X4 car, but this piece of crap has crossed arroyos and has gone up hills most trucks won't dare to. It is not fast, but wow this car has taken such a beating that if Buick would know, they would buy it from me because it would make them so proud. I've raced it on dirt roads! Going 50-60 mph on a dirt roads is extremely dangerous, but it's so much fun. I have used to crash into my friends car at slow speeds, but you do that and see if you like the result.
It is reliable for a Buick and it seems they are well made. I wish carsurvey had a way to upload pictures so people could see how bad this car looks... really ugly. We nicknamed it "el punk-o-mobil" cuz we are punks and we are extreme! And this old car showed us that Buick has balls.. old... but balls after all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
