1991 Buick Skylark from North America
If maintained and treated gently it can be decent transportation
It's had a continuous problem with the over heat light coming on although it hasn't really overheated, but I'm careful. I've had several things checked and replaced, but the light still comes on. During hot weather I have to run the heater to get the light to turn off. When I bought the car in 1998 it had just a couple of small rust spots, those have now become quite large and spread too many areas. I've noticed that other Skylarks on the road have the same rust problems. The front hood is also now shedding it's paint, about 20% of the paint is missing. The air conditioning system is also a problem with freon leakage.
Despite several moderate repairs and the rust and overheating, it's been pretty reliable and comfortable. As an economical vehicle and for someone willing to keep up with maintenance it's a decent car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
