Dented Pickle — Got the car as a work car in 2012, replaced an alternator, serpentine belt, tires and a battery. Change oil, add gas, done. As reliable as a car can be. Basic maintenance has me at 180,000 miles and I will drive it until the body goes away.

So So Regal — She just wasn't not maintained well by previous owners. The 3800 is a fantastic motor but has overheating problems. Gets good gas mileage and has plenty of power. But little quality issues plague this car, such as windows falling out of track, ignition won't shut off unless it cools down.

Pros

I now have this vehicle since NEW in 1999.  Today, November 22, 2011 i have 210,000 original miles.  I could buy somehting new, but why when it looks fantastic and rides great!  NO rot or dents. It is a great machine. Inside the drivers door states it was assembled in Canada.  Yay for the US and Canada!  Still i look at others, then know they ARE NOT solid as thisBuick.  Mileage has been up to 26 mpg highway, which is actually pretty good. I give only oil changes, the usual maintenace, tires, etc, every 5,000 miles and i DO NOT tune it up! Never!  I believe if i do they will mess up the timing or something so simple.  Why fix it if it ain't broke.  (Hey, i have NO PAYMENTS!)  It still hold true to its promises. (I garaged it only the past 6 years.  Otherwise, it can handle all weather. I preferred it to a 4WD and an AWD vehicle in deep snow. NEVER, ever got stuck. I work in an operating room, and on call i have to get there especially in snowstorms when the highways are shut down.  Chrome and paint still shiney. Fools many ppl on its age.  :D

Cons

Wishing it would drive another 100,00 miles!

Best Vehicle I Have Ever Owned. Still No Reason To Get Rid Of It! — See "Pros" NO blind spots, aqueaks or 'weird' noises. Repairs are fair, yet, again i never had any. Weird, i know. I do drive it, it's just not sitting around either. Have taken it outta state many, many times. The control is GREAT! Simply teh Sport version came loaded with every promise affirmed. I look at the new Buick's. So happy they are here! Maybe IF this one EVER goes down, then i will definitely consider a new Buick - Hybrid!

Excellent Purchase — see pros and cons. i used to be embarrassed by not having a new cars. but, i have NO payments, it's solid and in great, great shape.. And, why lease? it's the same as renting and never owning a thing! Besides, you'd have restrictions on use, etc. It's only been garaged these past 6 years. it's a '99 !! the acceleration is terrific, never had any, any major problems with it. simple stuff, oil, changes, battery, tires, the ususal maintenance. I'd actually consider another.

solid, responsive, features, lots of potential for improved performance

Cons

Could use paint job, but keeps on keeping on

Will Keep And Modify — There are as many aftermarket performance upgrades as a person could ever want. Car is very de-tuned from the factory so as to be in line with what Buick figured would be the standard Buick buyer. Each mod or upgrade simply allows the car to reach its potential while not adversely affecting reliability or comfort.

Badass 3.8 Supercharged Gs — The ride is smooth and it is extremely fast for a sedan. !40K later put two front wheel bearings, new belts for the supercharger and water pump, and a new water pump which i installed on my own and had no problems doing so.

Performance, leather interior, good stereo

Cons

Everything's plastic, I wish it were black, doesn't have a sun roof.

My Review — It's a nice car and happens to have leather interior but honestly, I think it's cheaply made. Everything inside is plastic right down to the door handles and seems like it could fall off later in the life of the car. The performance is GREAT! I absolutely LOVE having 200 HP. It's a bit large for the power. Kind of feels like you're driving a sporty whale down the road.
