Pros

Comort and mileage.

Cons

Paint chips off front bumper easily

75

I Like Buicks. — It handles well. Some of the interior started coming apart at 10 years. There are a few rattles. The paint chipped off the front bumper and it is white and looks tacky. I get good mileage with this car. It is a comfortable ride.

Road-warrior — these cars are beasts and will run nearly forever with good maintenance and TLC. the 3800 motor provides plenty of zip.

its not very sporty stock

Take Time To Upgrade It And You Have A Sweet Ride — stock they are ok, lots of room for upgrades. mine is decked out, ridiculously fast and powerful. With nice paint job they look pretty mean. Smooth and quiet ride. luxury based but very fast with after market parts. Gets 29-33 miles per gallon

Pros

Good mileage

Cons

The Door Handle

25

Pretty Good — The door handle is in an akward place making it prone to breaking. Everything else is great. It has a leather interior with 94000 miles, and it really fun to drive anywhere from school to work and to the beach.

Pros

Great runner, interior.

Cons

Exterior and rust

Regal — This was my first car and it was a beater. Terrible outside with rust on the rocker panels and front quarterpanels and rear quarterpanels. Ran like a beast tho. Had a little bit of zip every once and a while.

big and ugly

Served Me Very Well For Many Years And Has Many Years Left To Go In It! — Dont like Buick's, but this one has lasted me about 8 years with very few repairs needed beyond breaks, ect. Its an old beater, but fair-good drive through many road types and conditions. Dependable. Big comfortable seats, big trunk, big car. MPG about 30 highway, but only 22 city.
