1995 Buick Skylark Custom Quad 4 from North America


Good size, good mileage, dependable, as long as you take good care of it


Front driver and passenger side windows stopped working.

Rear passenger side window just started to fail when I sold it.

Air conditioning stopped working. Would have cost more than the car was worth to fix it, so I left it alone.

Began accelerating slower and slower once I hit about 160000 miles. When I sold it, could barely make it to 70 mph.

Coolant hose replaced at about 160000 miles.

General Comments:

Overall I really enjoyed the car.

Over the 2 years I owned it, only put about $300 in repairs, not including basic upkeep like oil changes and stuff.

I had heard that the type of engine it had didn't always perform well once it reached over 100,000 miles, but I really didn't have many problems at all. I took very good care of it, and it paid off.

Also heard that it was common for head gaskets to blow. As long as I had it, didn't have any problems.

My little sister, who bought the car from me, is still driving it. Other than the windows, she is not having any problems with it!

The Good and Bad Side (just being honest and fair)


This car was good when I first got it, cheap and affordable until, a little after 2 weeks had passed...

Alternator had to be replaced.

Oil leaks about several occasions (after been taken to get it fixed).

Windshield wipers started to wear off.

Air condition/Heater broke (made clanking sounds).

I had a letter/card that Buick Skylarks have to be "Recalled", due to "Ignition Switches" (luckily, mine was OK).

The bottom front point tip of the car is so far stretched-out, when I drive into a little dip on the road, Boom! I hit the ground straight on!

This car is not good if you are quite tall... no room for your legs!

General Comments:

So far, this car is still working OK.

I don't have a problem with it "Overheating" on me.

With a lot of miles on it already, it had taken me to a lot of places safely.

Overall, it is comfortable for a 5 foot 4 girl and the sound system is just OK.

I think you are being a little unfair in your review.

Most of what you state is due to you're not servicing the car in a timely manner. I mean, when windshield wipers wear out you are suppose to pay the 6 or 8 dollars to change them.

If the front end hits the ground, well, you are just going too fast... Now lady, be a little more fair in your reviews.

Dependable and worth the price


Right now I'm having problems with the voltage or battery light going on and off in the car.

The brake light also goes on and off.

General Comments:

I believe the car is very strong.

It was worth the purchasing price.

At 63,000 miles and very few problems with it.

A steal for the price paid


Front Driver Side Window Won't Work.

Back Right Passenger Side window only works when it wants.

Driver Seat Broke.

Grill on dash always comes off when I hit a bump.

Having problems with the tail lights, front dash lights, signal lights, cruise control.

Takes a bit to pick up speed.

Something went wrong with one of the oil components causing severe oil leakage.

Trunk shuts after about 3 tries of slamming it.

General Comments:

Car seems to be a real comfortable vehicle. Soft seats and very comfortable to ride in it. I think it was worth the money I paid for it even if it had high miles when I bought it.
