1992 Buick Skylark V6 from North America
I bought my car thinking it was pretty sporty and Buick has a pretty good reputation for making dependable cars.
I have had my car now for three years and had a lot of problems with the brakes. At first the brake system light would come on every now and then, then it started to stay on all of the time. I took it to the dealership where I bought it and they told me it was the sensor.
So I had it fixed. A couple of months later I was driving, and went to use the brakes and the brake pad went to the floor, my car kept going, then the brake pad snapped up and my car jerked and then stopped.
I have had my car fixed for this problem four times in the past two years. On average, every six months the brakes need to be fixed!
I will say that it hasn't leaked any oil, or taken any excess oil (except for changes).
It handles well, has lot of room.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Your 1992 Skylark GS should have a 3300, not a 3800 as indicated. I as well have a '92 Skylark GS Coupe - going to be selling it next week, 235,000 miles on it, and the most ever done to it was a water pump (aside from normal maint.)
