Pros

Power (the 3800 GM v-6 is the best one EVER made!!!), comfort, ride, handling, snow traction, power everything, good gas mileage for a full size!

Cons

cruise control was finicky at times, body rust was an issue but for the mileage (160,000) was understandable, Uniroyal Tires on it were junk!

They Dont Make Them Like They Used To... — there are not many of these cars left on the road in decent condition. Fortunately I have had the opportunity to drive 2 of them. Both were 1991 Regal Customs. One i drove in Highschool and was dark red; my mom drove it for several years before it was given to me to drive, then Tom my younger brother drove it for a couple years when he was in highschool. The other one I bought from a local kid i knew and fixed it up, it needed some mechanical reconditioning, but I drove it for about 6 months and it ran flawless. Sold in February of 2009. I averaged about 32 mpg between Marinette, Wi and Sault Ste Marie, Mi. Over all I would give the car about an 8 out of 10.

Outstanding Buick! — This was the greates car I ever owned. I liked it so much, I bought an identical one after bouncing the first off a tree. Build quality was superb. The 175 HP 3800 performance was more than adequate when compared with other vehicles of it's vintage. The revised 4T60-E transmission was rock solid. The fiberglass transverse rear leaf spring provided rigid ride and stable control, with no spring sag over time. Economy was reasonable at 19 city and 30 highway. This car was a real looker, and stood out in a crowd as the GS package was limited relative to others.

Old & Crappy, But Pretty Darn Good For A First Car. — Lots of interior/trunk space. Solid GM 3.8 Liter V6. Started in the North Dakota winters. Handled like a dream on the gravel back-roads. Couldn't have asked for a better starter. I kinda beat the crap out of this car, but also took pretty good care of it at the same time.

390000 Kms And Still No Blue — This car runs great. One problem though but I believe justified afer 390000 kms is the rear caliper park brake mechanism is seazing every time the park brake is applied. You require a persuader (hammer) to retract the mechanism. Other than that it drives and rides like a dream.

Pros

Pretty excellent car. Handled Perfectly. Never let me down. EVER.

Cons

Does make noise, but a 22 year old engine will do that.

Best American Car Ever Made — The Buick Regal in my opinion is the best car GM ever made. Even today. Since the 90's, this car was amazing. (I don't like the 80's regal) If GM offered the 3800 on the new regal's today, I would buy it, no questions asked. The 91 Regal is the car for me and until it dies, I will drive it. Everywhere.

Pros

Desperate for a roomy and comfortable vehicle.

Cons

It will break and it will be costly to repair.

25

Avoid At All Costs. — Performance - electronically delayed acceleration, braking and handling ok. Build quality - Needs lots of repairs to engine and electronic systems and electrical devices. Cost of ownership - constant climate control makes it difficult to get a consistent MPG reading, and after ten years major repairs will be needed. Fun factor - suspension too cushy for cornering, but a great touring car.

I could've hit a semi with it and lived.

Cons

It was like an ugly boat!

My Purple Boat. — My buick was a birthday present the year I got my license. My parents had it panted easter egg purple, there was no way to miss it. I have to admit, its a great car for a new driver. You could literally hit anything and be safe. It was totally ugly and slow as hell. It taught me how to park pretty well, every car I've had since seems tiny compared to it. Not a fun car to drive in the least, but hey, it is practical.

gets great gas mileage and a decent looker

Cons

its a demanding car, can't beat on it

Nice If Your Looking For A Cheap Sports Car. — i think its quick at acceleration but in the long run it comes up short though i have never maxed my car out i've gotten it to 105. my driver side door is rubbing up against the front fender so theres some flaws in the build quality. long car so it makes it look fast but the interior could use some sprucing up to still give you that feeling that its fast. very cheap when it comes to insurance, i pay $60 under my dads name and i would pay somewhere around $90 on my own policy. bit pricey to repair because i have the GS (Gran Sport) model it comes with a bit of performance accesories like oil cooler and trans cooler for the radiator. nice little car to drive around in
