2003 Buick Regal Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 2 reviews
2003 was a year for downsizing in the Buick Regal. Not in dimensions or trunk capacity (16.7 cubic feet) or engine power (a 3.8-liter, V6), but in standard equipment, most notably in the base LS model. The 2003 Regal is a mid-size sedan that shares its style and platform with the Century, but offers better performance and a sportier suspension in an attempt to woo younger buyers.
This year, some safety features that were standard on the LS, such as ABS brakes and traction control, are now optional. They are still offered with the GS. Heated mirrors are now only optional on the GS. And the handy split-folding rear seats will now cost you extra. Does the 2003 Regal make up for this with anything new? It does get a better starter and bundles options together in more packages, a new Luxury package and a Leather and Wheel package, which adds leather seats, the split-fold, and 15-inch aluminum wheels to the LS. A 195-hp V6 powers the base LS, while the supercharged GS hits 240-hp, both with a 4-speed automatic. The GS comes standard with 16-inch wheels, a stiffer suspension, and rear stabilizer bar, which is optional on the LS as the Gran Touring package.
The 2003 Regal is a good domestic alternative to the more popular foreign mid-size sedans, and owners like the still long list of features (power driver's seat, cruise, keyless entry) even in the base model. They also feel the engine is reliable and durable, with good 20/30 gas mileage. Handling is a breeze, and the GS acceleration power hints at street racer potential. Downsides include some dash rattles, an outdated interior (especially the faux wood trim), wind noise, and cupholders that get in the way of the shifter.
