For $300, I couldn't go wrong. Needed a car in a hurry, and just so happens I found one. Previous owner played pinball with some guardrails, so it wasn't the prettiest thing going down the road. Got me to where I had to go though.
Luckily, everything else besides the driver's window switch, worked flawlessly. A/C was ice cold, sunroof operated smoothly, power antenna did its thing, cruise control... cruised.
I really liked the dashboard design, with the single digital speed readout, but the gas gauge moved around a lot. Had an intermittent problem with the service engine soon light illuminating due to a flaky throttle sensor, sometimes the car wouldn't fire up without pressing the accelerator for a bit.
Oh, but when it ran, it ran well. I loved the torque curve of the 3800, all down low where you need it.
Ended up hitting a deer at 55, demolishing what was left of the right front corner of the vehicle. The last drive I took it out on, decided to throw it in reverse at 50. Engine just stalled, threw her in neutral and fired her right back up and kept on rolling.
Sometimes I look at new cars going down the road and wonder if my good old Buick donated its sheet metal to one of them. Hell of a car with a quirky personality. If you've got one, hold on to it for a while.
And don't hit deer. Bad.
