1990 Buick Regal Grand Sport 3.8L V6 from North America
A reliable vehicle with a demon under the hood!!!
Buying a car that sat in a backyard for two years you are to expect problems, but I found that the amount of things wrong with this car were at a minimum.
When I charged the battery, the car started right up. This was where I noticed that the car needed a good tune up and a fluid change.
When I began to drive the car, I noticed the brakes were bad. I had new brake pads and routers put on.
I just recently replaced the alternator. I also had to replace the spark plug wires, because one of them was touching the engine and eventually burned through. This caused the engine to rattle at a certain R.P.M. (especially in reverse). Also, this caused me to have bad gas mileage.
This is a wonderful car. With its powerful and reliable 3.8L V6, that produces some amazing power. All the while looking like a car that you would more or less see an older person driving.
As far as the handling is concerned, it steers like a fat person on roller skates.
I love the power door locks and windows. Also the all power driver-side seat feels more like a La-Z-Boy providing drivers with a very comfortable ride (good for long trips).
When my friends get into the back seat for the first time, they always say that it is unusually roomy given the size of the car's body.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
