1984 Buick SkylarkReview
Comfortable Boat Of A Car Has Reliability Issues — It has a V-6 and it sounds like it has a lot of power, but in fact it only produced a lot of noise. The transmission died just after 90k miles and the shocks were shot long before the transmission went. Reliability sucked, but at the time it was a very good looking car. On the flip side it was a very comfortable car. The seats were soft as was the suspension (too soft, it was blown!) so it made for good trips. Also the power steering was so good I could literally drive with one finger.
Pros: Comfortable, good looking (at the time), quality interior, power steering
Cons: Engine reliability, shocks blown prematurely
