Toughest car I have ever seen
When I bought the car, it had sat under a pine tree for 3 or 4 years. At that time it had 4 flat tires and a gummed up carb.
Since then, the speedometer cable came loose for a couple of years; that's why I don't know its true mileage.
The power steering pump messed up 3 years ago (I didn't need power steering anyway).
The hubcaps trap dirt in them, so I took 'em off.
I had to convert to the new freon in A/C, and it has worked for 7 years straight.
The interior driver's door handle broke off, so for the past 5 years I have had to roll down the power window to pull up on the exterior handle, so I can get out.
The variable wiper switch on the left side of column went out, so I took an old Christmas tree extension cord and straight wired it from the battery to the switch (the bad part about that is that I only have 1 wiper speed).
The battery terminal would arc on the air intake hose (it's like a big slinkie in plastic), but I fixed that with a little duct tape.
I paid $400 dollars for this car.
I have driven this car every day for 7 years. It is a relentless battle wagon.
In the 80's Buick built the most reliable cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
