Old Person Car. Ballsy, But Boring. — One thing after another went wrong with mine. It had a lot of kick, but was very problematic. Besides, who wants to drive a Buick?

Pros

Good for ghetto cruisin, and nothing else.

Cons

This car is unreliable and dangerous even at low speeds.

Horrible Platform. Tendency To Oversteer-bad In A Passenger Car. — Don't ever buy a Buick. Acceleration was good, but transmission died with a QUICKNESS. Also had very poor road handling abilities. Traction control was OTB, and the car would slide off the road without warning. Build quality was dismal to put it nicely. Nothing matched up quite right.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

More Problems Than It Was Worth — Car acceleration was good, brakes were lacking, handling was decent. I did not feel safe in the car because it had multiple issues including ABS choosing when to come on, bald tires, poor brakes, etc. The car was fun to drive sometimes. It met its demise in a rain storm.

Primary Use: Family transportation
