100,000 miles, and this traditional full-size Buick still runs like a bear
2 stretched motor mounts were replaced.
Driver heated seat inoperable (live in a southern climate and don't care).
Wipers some times get stuck in the up position when turned off.
Plastic coolant elbow was seeping coolant (this is a stupid design, and the replacement part is still made of plastic).
General maintenance; oil, brakes, plugs, filters.
My father, who has been buying Buicks for over 50 years, is the owner of this car, and I'm posting this review because I know the car's history, seeing that I'm the one who takes care of it, and performed the minor repairs listed above.
This car has a great smooth and quiet ride, just as good and if not better than my Town Car. The legendary 3800 motor has very adequate power for a car this big. The large seats are comfortable, and the diamond white paint and chrome wheels really set the car off. Loaded with options (too many if you ask me).
The only bad things in my opinion are that this should be a rear-drive car, and the dash has too many buttons for various info. and the climate control.
This is the last full-size Buick that actually looks like a Buick.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
