1996 Buick Skylark Custom 2.4 liter from North America
When it runs it's OK
I had to replace the water pump.
I had to replace the catalytic converter.
I had to have the water pump replaced again! (warranty from the repair man covered it).
I had to replace the ignition coil housing.
I had to have the coil assembly housing and the ignition coil replaced.
I had to have the catalytic converter changed again.
It has quit again! We believe it is the fuel injection.
I just want to get it fixed, and next month pay it off and drive it around the block one more time before it quits again!!!
When it is running... it drives fairly well. I have no complaints with the way it handles or rides, just that lately it doesn't do it very often. I have put mega bucks in this car and am determined to drive it at least once after it is paid off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

My son has this "dog"---- (the 2.4 liter dual-overhead version)
Repair costs are ASTRONOMICAL (if you can find a mechanic who will work on it)
Example...replacing the water pump (which is driven by the timing chain... there are printed procedures... the cost is almost $700.00)
