1996 Buick Regal Custom 3.8L from North America
I've been very impressed with the reliability and performance of this car
The spark plug wires failed at roughly 200,000km.
The driver's seat wore out and became uncomfortable at under 90,000km.
The handling of the car leaves something to be desired.
The sound system was an unexpected surprise, better quality speakers and sound than I expected from the car.
There is ample room in both the front and rear seats and trunk, all creature comforts have performed beyond expectations.
Despite sub-standard maintenance records and sometimes questionable treatment, this car has far exceeded my expectations in terms of reliability. I now take much better care of it, but it still won't quit.
No major repairs have ever been necessary, I've never had any work done beyond replacing the plug wires and routine maintenance. Even the battery hasn't died in the 5 years I've owned the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
