    Probably Best To Avoid All The Old Gm 2.8l V-6s — Kind of quick. Looked like nothing special. Had a bunch of issues mechanically: Radiator, Fuel Pump, Front Shocks. Got about 14-18 mpg average. Too big to stop effectively. I threw a connecting rod going 115 for a half hour straight. The front seats were more comfy than my sofa though. I slept in that driver's seat more than a few times.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable seats, 4 wheels

    Cons: Unreliable, Inefficient

    Great Powerful Car Ready For Fun And Work — nothing really its a great car that lasted through out the years, it has a ton of power, the appearance is most outgoing and strong, the car is fun to drive cuz of the horse power and the sleak looks.

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

    Pros: there awesome

    Cons: a little bit heavy

    Not For Everyone — Well, it takes a beating and just keeps going. There are faster cars out there... hell, there are faster bicycles out there. But this car gets the job done. Not necessarily fun to drive or high quality, but it is low maintenance and inconspicuous. Acceleration: 0-60 on a good day. Braking: It stops... eventually. Handling: Comparable to that of a zeppelin.

    Pros: Low maintenance and it blends in well

    Cons: Everything else

    Best Car That I Will Ever Have! — Buick's are good cars. My friend had one too! This car was only owned by two other people. My grandma and the lady she bought it from.

    Pros: Still a good car!! <3

    Cons: I had to fix some parts on it. But it is getten old so it was fine!
