1986 Buick Grand NationalReview
Wouldnt Be Without It! — This is one awesome car to drive. Hit the acceleratorand listen to the sound of the turbo kick in. I t sends chills up my spine. next thing you realize is your going 30 over the speed limit. With the overdrive trans you end up with outstanding performance and great fuel economy. The only disadvantage is when car starts running bad or not at all. Its kinda tough to diagnose if you dont know where to start.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Outstanding performance
Cons: Expensive to maintain

Gas quality is what you would expect of a engine of its stature. It's very fun to drive, really beefy sounding. Handles very good especially for a car of its age. Great body and awesome paint job. The... Read More
