1983 Buick Skylark Limited 3.8 from North America
One tough cookie
The Radiator Blew up when I hit a tree at 30 mph, the front passenger steer tire shredded when I was stuck on another tree. The body panels have been rather weak standing up to collisions with a 1979 Ford Bronco. The front passenger window broke out from a 40 mph side impact. The throttle sticks from time to time.
The car could have some more power. Its handling is sub par, but it rides quite nice even when its running over trees and jumping dirt ramps. The absence of brakes leaves me wondering if they could have designed a better way to protect the lines from rust and corrosion, but its front bumper is strong enough to withstand repeated front impacts ranging from 5 mph to 45 mph so brakes are not needed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
