1995 Buick Skylark Custom 2.3L DOHC from North America
A nice car that has it's faults, but will last a long time
One of the temperature control knobs broke.
The front speakers are blown.
First my signal lights went out, then my dashboard lights, and then my interior and headlights too! I had to replace the whole module in the steering column in 2002.
There is a terrible grinding sound coming from the front driver side tire and no one can figure out what it is.
I had a new transmission put in at 80,000 miles in 1998 because it was not shifting right.
It takes a while to shift into the next gear.
When flooring it, the car goes real slow and then all of a sudden kicks in very powerfully.
The driver side window broke twice because the motor is a cheap (but expensive) plastic part.
The trunk is hard to close.
The trunk light fell out of where it belongs and won't stay put when I put it back.
I put a new alternator in 1999, and now, in 2002, I am about to need a new one again.
Overall, I am generally pleased with my car because it has never really let me down.
The gas mileage is pretty good.
The driver seat is comfortable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
