Pros

Comfortable, roomy, decent gas mileage for a large car.

Cons

It's not made anymore, so I will have to downsize when I look for a newer Buick. I'm not a fan of leather seats.

Satisfied — I don't care much for leather seats, cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Seems like the driver's seat heater doesn't last a long time in these cars. Overall, still an great driving car. approximately 30 mph on highway.

This Is A Great Driving And Family Car. — This is the second Buick that I have owned, and I was very satisfied with both of them. I would recommend this car or any Buick to own. The car have given me 23-25 city and 30-33 highway miles per gallon.

A Really Nice Car, With No Problems In The 3 Years I Have Driven It. — I love everything about the car. It treated me good for 4 years. its a classic car. I had to fix the power windows on the passenger side one time. Its still running smooth after 213,000 miles. not much to complain about. overall very reliable.

Wanda, The Boulevard Cruiser — This car was purchased as a fluke. I was visiting my parents and I needed something reliable and cheap. Turns out I kind of like it--within its parameters. Good highway cruiser--fairly floppy around town. Surprisingly great fuel economy-- 23 overall, 32 on level freeway at 70. Very comfortable, typical GM squeaks and rattles in dash. Tons of luxury features--rainsensing wipers, automatic headlights, great sound system. Repairs can be expensive. Decent acceleration, engine sometimes coarse.

Great Driving Car With A Few Nagging Problems. — Parents bought the car new. Have had to replace the power windows 5 different times on various windows. Drivers window gone out once, passenger front window twice, and each rear window once. Transmission gone out twice, though the second transmission was salvaged. Besides that, rides great and gets great fuel economy.

Definitely A Great Car To Drive. — I like, when it's running correctly, the nice smooth ride. I hate, however, the problems we are having with the suspension, such as constant fishtailling. it is fun to drive. It has its problems, but I generally enjoy the ride.

Pros

It has been a reliable car and has a good ride.

Cons

We had to replace the transmission at 120,000 miles

Family Car — This car has been just OK for us. We replaced the transmission at 120,000 miles and just replaced the battery after 10 years. After 130.000 miles it has begun to have a valve lifter noise on cold start-up. I am hoping that it does not get any worse. It uses about a 1/2 quart of oil every 1000 miles which is not bad for the age of the car. 2014 update - sold the car with 175000 miles on it. It was still running OK but I was worried about its reliability.
