Summary:

It could be better, but it is very comfy to ride in

Faults:

I bought my car, and I found out it had a problem with the power steering pump.

Then it also had the hole problem with the radio antenna, where the motor works, but it does not go up or down, like someone came and bobbed their hand on it.

My A/C compressor went out also, so I had to take the belt off, and get a new one and re-route it.

There was also a time that my coolant reservoir came off the bracket, and got a nice hole in it by the pollys.

Other than that, I'm the only one that has been driving it, and I'd say it is probably more reliable than my 1991 Camry was.

This car is good for going to work and driving around town.

I can say Buicks ride nice; to me it's the same ride you can get in a Cadillac.

General Comments:

So far it handles nice and the seats are comfortable.

Summary:

My favorite car I've ever owned, a willing partner, ready for the road

Faults:

Not many problems considering the high mileage.

I've replaced the brakes 3 times, but with none of the typical flaws referenced for this car.

2 fuel pumps.

The rear suspension leaf spring gave out due to all the luggage & sales samples, so I had it replaced.

2 A/C compressors & 2 dryers.

A radiator.

2 cooling fans motors.

An A/C fan.

A window motor & the antenna motor. 3 starters.

This along with regular stuff: tires, struts etc...

This is now a spare car, our dating car, etc... If it sits for a month the exhaust will smoke slightly for about a mile. This car has had very regular maintenance, and has been all over the country with me.

General Comments:

The velour upholstery is still in great shape, and after 300,000 miles with me the bucket seat still fits my bucket.

This car will still Rock-n-Roll!

Even though much of the factory paint is gone, the wife still likes to take it for a spin sometimes. Says it handles so much better than her Olds.

Even though it is a 1991, it still looks like the current body types.

That mileage is pretty impressive. I think there are an unusual amount of older Buicks on the road. It is not uncommon to see a LeSabre or Century from the mid-late 80's used as a daily driver here in the Mid-West. Sometimes I even see older ones. Of course you see other makes from this era too, but I seem to notice more older Buicks than anything else. Maybe it is because they tend to be owned by elderly folks who put very few miles on them and keep them for years. Then they have a lot of life left when they are finally traded. But the same could be said of full-size Ford and other GM products from the same era, but you just don't see nearly as many of them.

Summary:

Awesome reliable vehicles!!

Faults:

My wheel bearing went around 110,000 miles.

Rear caliper on driver's side kept freezing and had problems with that.

Coolant recovery tank sprang a leak after it cracked, probably from old age.

General Comments:

This car drove perfectly when I bought it in 2004. I drove it everywhere! I loved taking the car on road trips because of how comfortable it was! A lot of the newer cars just don't have great interior as this car did! And I would still have the car today if I wasn't involved in a serious car accident with it. Most other cars wouldn't have held up to a head on collision but this car saved my life! It may not have had airbags but the interior and the seat belts cushioned me as my vehicle came in contact with the other vehicle. I wouldn't be here today if it weren't for such a great car as this Buick was!

As for reliability, the car is awesome! No engine problems! I only had to do routine maintenance and the regular replacing of small parts that wore out with time. This was my 5th Buick and again, I've always had wonderful experiences with them! I would recommend this car to anyone! And don't be afraid of the "granny" owned vehicles! This is a great luxury car for the price regardless of year or style of vehicle! If it's a Buick, it's gonna be good!!
