I experienced a blown head gasket do to extremely high engine temps traced to a faulty temperature gauge that I should have replaced sooner.
Current problems: every 6 months or so the car will stall out for no apparent reason, I keep maintenance logs of my car and found no correlation to weather, velocity, or fuel levels. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Solid car, well built and reliable. Shows little excessive wear and tear on engine and chassis despite many new england winters.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am the owner of a 1989 Buick Regal GS which I bought new. It now has 248,000 miles and except for a few minor repairs has been trouble free. It has the 3.1 engine and neither the engine or transmission have been opened and it never needs additional oil between 5000 mile oil changes. It has (as far as I know) all the accessories that were available at that time and everything works, but the Left power window is a little slow.
Even at 16 years and nearly 250,000 miles it easily handles the sharpest curves and has great acceleration. This has been and still is a tremendous car with great engineering and has delivered far more than expected.

I have a 89 Buick Regal Limited 2.8 Liter V-6, got a great running car for a car that started having issues at 32k miles cause that's still what it says many years later. well I started having oil leak problems with the lower intake. yeah it smokes. then I have very poor acceleration all of a sudden. no keep in mind this car has a full tune up. service engine soon light comes on when I don't accelerate, goes off when I accelerate seconds later. does anyone else have this issue?
