Stylish, Unique, Impressive, Aerodynamic............the Way It Was. — For a car to last a long time it requires attention, care and space. I love this car because it was my first one. These were great cars that GM made at the time. The American Industry however has gone downhill unfortunately.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It has maintained its looks over the years. This was the very first car that I drove in my life. It is quite a memory for me. It holds sentimental values. Three of my relatives for instance who used to be my passengers in it have passed away.

Cons: It is not as powerful as my present Crown Victorias, which are also great cars, but which have less metal in them.

Nice Style And Ride. — Bought the car in 87 while a junior in high school. It is a limited edition with the pillow seats that were very comfortable. I repainted it in 93 and drove it till 97. It's currently resting under cover in my building. At the time I wanted a grand national but couldn't afford one so this had to do.these were very nice cars for the price and time and very dependable. Only problem was they didn't have much power, but that was common in the early 80's. nice car over all for the period.

Pros: Nice car back in the 80's.  nice ride and excellent comfort.

Cons: Lack of power.

Bumper To Bumper, The Single Best Car Ever To Be Made In America. — This is my favorite American Made automobile, far and away. Classically styled, with the look of a muscle car, made over by the geniuses that used to be at Buick. The interior (I had the crushed velvet seats in all of my Regals), was firm, but soft, and well-suited for long trips. Plenty of headroom (I am 6'6"), and legroom, even in the backseat in the 4-door version. The drivetrain was wonderful. I opted for the 3.8L V6 in all of my Regals / Century / Cutlass Supreme Sedans. There was plenty of passing power, even at highway speeds, smooth shifting, and above-average gas mileage for it's time. The cars are long lasting, well-buits icons of America, and what our country used to be capable of making.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Ride, function, radio, styling, durability, I can go on for years here.

Cons: None.  Simple as that.

I Will Take Comfort And Looks Over Power — i havent had do do any repairs yet besides the usual oil change and air filter change. it gets good gas mileage with the 231cid v6 but doesnt have lots of power. it has a nice smooth ride with comfy seats

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: smooth ride and looks classy

Cons: not much power

It was just ok from what I would expect from Buick. Too many plastic surfaces and minor squeaks made me feel the build quality was not for me. Read More
