Modest yet luxurious, dependable, handsome car
Nothing has gone wrong with this car.
Admittedly it only has 36000 miles on it.
The previous elderly owner was very meticulous in her care for this car, including the maintenance.
This GM drivetrain is arguably one of the best out there. Very common to see these cars with well over 200,000 miles on them.
Sure there are lemons, and isolated cases of bad luck, but proper and routine maintenance goes along way in how a car behaves for someone in the long run. Not to mention driving the car with a modicum of respect on a regular basis.
I also own a 1993 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special. FWD with the 4.9L V-8. I give the Buick very high praise in a close 2nd to the Cadillac overall. The amenities are slightly better suited to an elderly demographic in the Buick. Big buttons, no frills etc. But the 3.8L is slightly better on gas and a bit less troublesome in the long run than the Cadillac 4.9L.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
