Previous carbuick regal

Faults:

Tranny went bad 197000, and a water pump at around same mileage.

General Comments:

Well lets see here all I can say is WOW! despite the trans problem this car is not a front wheel drive id not want to meet on the strip. the 3800 series II was serious enough backed by a supercharger and in my case after market you can hit 13s on pump gas. I was impressed with the straight 3.8 but with a after market supercharger and about 10lbs of boost it will and has eaten a mustang cobra. and beaten a grand national by a half a car length. my best time in my coupe was a 13.60 at 123 or so. and that was supercharged prior to charger I was in around 15.50 or so with 186000 miles on ticker. lots of bang for buck and a tuner destroyer on strip stock or modified. handles very well through traffic and curvy roads. I give this car a solid 9 on performance. a 10 would be a vette, but hey as of now I'm only 2 seconds behind in a quatermile so I will stay with my regal. oh did I mention even with add ons I still maintain 28 miles to gallon.

Summary:

Great car, would buy another one

Faults:

Engine coolant thermostat replaced.

Front suspension redone- Passenger side strut assembly replaced due to leaking.

Tires replaced- previous driver drove with flat tires and rubbed against curbs.

Minor damages all around from previous driver.

Replacing speakers at the end of winter. bass sounds hollow.

Spark plugs replaced.

General Comments:

This is a great car with lots of interior space and a very large trunk.

It has lots of features: Power seats/mirrors/windows/ locks, Steering wheel stereo controls (don't work now because I replaced the tape deck with a Cd deck), Comfortable seats great for long distances, ABS brakes, etc.

Heater is great, it warms up quickly and stays warm even when the car is left in the cold all day.

Good speakers, although bass sounds hollow. The original tape deck had automatic volume control so you couldn't blow your speakers by turning it up too loud.

The 3.1 Liter engine is powerful for a 90s car. Lots of get up and go, although maintenance is a pain in the ass. There is not a lot of room under the hood and its hard to pull parts out. It took me 4 hours to replace a thermostat that on any other car would take 15 minutes.

Cd player was harder to install then on my Caravan, but with an adapter and a lot of time, it went in.

Summary:

Buick is the best brand in America!

Faults:

One day, the front left speaker stopped working, and the radio made a pop noise when turned on and off. By the end of the day everything was working again, though.

No other problems.

General Comments:

I bought the Buick the day before I drove from Los Angeles, CA to Midland, MI, as I didn't think my Civic would be able to make the trip. I am so glad I bought the Buick.

It was very inexpensive compared to other similar cars, and is very spacious. I crammed almost everything I owned into it, bringing the load weight to about 1,000 pounds or so. The 3.8L V6 pulled me across the states with this load and gave me SHOCKING gas mileage!

I got 35 mpg going through Oklahoma at about 60 mph, due to construction. 35 mpg! in a fully loaded beast of a sedan! The ride was also very very comfortable. The AC gets cold within a couple minutes.

Though it's a 95 California car, it doesn't show any signs of it's age. I love this car, it's far from the newest, but it is without a doubt the nicest car I've ever had.

My mother bought a Buick Le Sabre new in 2003, and she still has it and loves it today, and it also has the 3.8L, and gets excellent gas mileage.

Now, I would not want this car if I was still in LA. It is big, and the gas mileage dips to mid-20s (still not bad for its size) with constant stops. It's great for longer commutes.

Everything on my Honda felt like it might fall off, and my Buick is the exact opposite. Everything about the car feels solid, reliable, and strong. I especially love the 3.8L V6, as I've had nothing, but good experiences with it. It is a powerful, efficient, and reliable engine.

I highly recommend a Buick to anyone looking for a comfy sedan. However, I notice they are a very popular make already. Buick has most certainly earned their popularity. All the other brands have to advertise their hearts out for sales.
