Regal — This was my first car and it was a beater. Terrible outside with rust on the rocker panels and front quarterpanels and rear quarterpanels. Ran like a beast tho. Had a little bit of zip every once and a while.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great runner, interior.

Cons: Exterior and rust

Served Me Very Well For Many Years And Has Many Years Left To Go In It! — Dont like Buick's, but this one has lasted me about 8 years with very few repairs needed beyond breaks, ect. Its an old beater, but fair-good drive through many road types and conditions. Dependable. Big comfortable seats, big trunk, big car. MPG about 30 highway, but only 22 city.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: functional, economical, dependable, cheap parts

Cons: big and ugly

Gets You Pt. A To Pt. B — Good Acceleration, doesn't need lots of repairs just normal one's, leather interior, 20 mpg city, 25+ mpg highway, about 25 bucks for a tank of gas, fun to drive on long distance, and great cruise control mantains same speed for the most part

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

Pros: little more power than you think

Cons: doors lock when in gear

For What Its Worth Theres No Way To Pass One Of These Up — The buick is a very reliable car. i have not had one hickup yet with this regal. body wise it is very nice but sadly the car rust too easy. the regal is extremly fun to drive. it is also pretty quick down the track. the braking is amazing on this car, the interior is pretty nice and clean. the 3800 series II engine in these cars have major balls.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The most reliable car to drive.

Cons: rust gets everywhere on this car

I Like Buicks. — It handles well. Some of the interior started coming apart at 10 years. There are a few rattles. The paint chipped off the front bumper and it is white and looks tacky. I get good mileage with this car. It is a comfortable ride.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comort and mileage.

Cons: Paint chips off front bumper easily

Fairly Easy On The Eyes And I Had My Hands Full Maintaining It — nice big moter but it makes alot of noise for such slow acceleration but once its movin theres no stoppin her, doors/windows rattle a good bit, if you do it right its a fun car to drive, but it took a huge chunk out of my wallet with both gas and maintenance but over all i'm glad it was my first car

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: has power when you need it. good winter car

Cons: sucks gas like there's no tomorrow

Pretty Good — The door handle is in an akward place making it prone to breaking. Everything else is great. It has a leather interior with 94000 miles, and it really fun to drive anywhere from school to work and to the beach.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good mileage

Cons: The Door Handle
