Jacob's Buick — This was the first GM vehicle I owned and I have to say that I was very satisfied. This Buick didn't have the "old man" feel or look to it. It was a very professional yet quite a rocket with the 3800 Supercharged V6 engine.

Pros: Very professional but fun

Cons: They don't make the Regal anymore.

Gs Rules! — SLEEPER! Buick smooth ride, stays flat in the corners with optional suspension. Factory Monsoon stereo rattles the windows. 4 wheel discs work well for a big car(3700 lbs empty).My average mileage is about 21mpg city and 33 mpg highway, although I have gotten as good as 37mpg on the highway. The factory supercharged V-6 is a strong runner and has surprised many tuners.

Pros: mileage, power, stereo

Cons: fwd

'99 Buick Regal Ls Supercharged — Despite looking like a boat it handles really well with a fairly high power to weight ratio. It's supercharged for an added boost in acceleration and can really move up those Colorado hills. Mileage isn't too great, i only get about 20 in the city, but I enjoy the ride. It's also got a kick ass sound system, amp is stock but i replaced the stock speakers with infinity reference series so it sounds pretty great. Everyone thinks i have subs but its just that famous low-end off those 6/9's in the back. I like the looks too, its got a very nice paint job and looks really sleek when I've got it all polished up.

Pros: Smoothe ride and good acceleration

Cons: Gas Mileage and an occasional maintnance issue

These Cars Are Sleepers For Sure! — These cars have the same supercharged engines as the impala, monte carlo SS, and GTP's, but they keep the comfort of the Buick.

Pros: Supercharger, fast

Cons: cheep center counsel, must use premium gas.

This Is A Family Compact Car With Powerful Engine — I like the GM 3.8 L engine it is a one of smoothest engine I have ever driven . I don't like regal low wheel base , I like to have more wheel base like on lesabre. A new steering intermediate shaft, along with the addition of a strut tower brace is the secret to more precise road feel and better steering response this year, which has never been Buick's strong suit.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Powerful engine, comfortable front seats, uncluttered looks.

Cons: Cheap leather, no folding rear seat, uninspired interior design.

This Is The Best Us Made Car I Have Ever Owned...and I'm 65! —

The overall styling of the Regal is very simple and it still looks very good 13 years after it was made. It's a good size, drives easily and has a lot of good features, more than I'm used to. I like the interior, but it is a bit plain, and I like real wood trim instead of plastic "wood" trim, but that was GM at that time. The older Olds Touring Sedan I had years ago had real wood...Progress, I guess. This car has the Monsoon Sound System-I have no idea what that means-I think it's an 8 speaker system with a radio and tape player. You can control the sound system from the steering wheel, which sounds odd, but it's very convenient. As far as I have seen, everything in this complex little car works! But it is pretty comfortable. The paint is amazingly good. The car has a few very minor dings and dents-it's 13 years old-but NO serious rust, and here in the PA salt belt, that's a real feat. The body is tight, trans and engine work well. Minor problems are mainly from use and wear over the years and miles-the blower fan will be replaced-bad bearings. The driver's window needs a new roller, the car needed new ball joints and links, and a new gas filler tube and exhaust work. Again, it has 186,000 miles and 13 years on it. I did have the oil and filter changed, and the trans flushed and cleaned. All belts, hoses and filters were checked, fluids added as needed and the car passed PA state inspection and emissions testing. The brakes are GREAT. Trans is smooth. Lights and all else works fine .Even the carpet and headliner is very good, which for a 13 year old car that was used by a family tells me something...the interior is a bit plain, but it is holding up all this time! I have some experience with this V6.it is one of the beast engines GM has ever made. Years ago, I drove a cab "between jobs", and they used '80's GM cars with the 3800 series engines...they ran them routinely for 300,000 miles, then rebuilt them and kept on going. They will go on forever if maintained. Parts are cheap and readily available, new and used, and there are lots of aftermarket things for these cars. Lots of people love these old GS hotrods. Drove it over 50 miles from the dealer home and I was getting 31.1 MPG on the PA Turnpike according to the driver info. I drove it in town today and the average is still over 29 MPG... Overall, this will be my fun car and I love it already...Glad I didn't buy that old Alfa Romeo... ADDED: I really look forward to driving the GS- I bought it to be an occasional use fun car, and it has been every bit of that. Handling and ride is the best of any US car I have ever owned over the last nearly 50 years. People have told me they thought it was a much newer car...one person thought it was new! It is very fast, and mine has the Touring Suspension Package. The road feel and handling are great, and only my old Fiat Spiders handled better. If you are looking for this type of car, find an old GS and give it a try...if you can find one for sale. Mine is NOT. mark

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

Pros: This car is fast and handles and rides very well. I have owned a few European sports cars and I like the Regal GS as much or better. Comfortable, looks great drives very well...and it is FAST! The 3800 engine is nearly immortal, smooth and not bad on gas considering the size and weight of the car. Update My GS has the Touring Suspension Package, which is a heavy duty torsion bar and other heavier stiffer components. It is a GREAT road car. Just took it over an 80+ mile trip last weekend, and my brother, in his first ride in this Buick, remarked several times on the ride and handling. It is the best handling US made car I have ever had...and on this rare highway trip, the car averaged 33.6 MPG! In town, I am getting between 22-23 MPG, which is very good.

Cons: There is a lot of plastic in the interior, and some of it is broken. The leather is OK, not highest quality, but it is still in very good shape after 13 years! Overall, not much wrong...It's a late '90's car, and they did things differently back then. Update- I find the blower for the heater/AC is not working, and I read that this is pretty common in the late 90's GM cars...should be a pretty easy fix though.

Am In Love — This car is more than awesome, luxurious, and very fast at the same time....one downfall though...electronic transmissions suck because of the cost effective ways that the factory has to produce them...but if you got the money you can make these transmissions last with mods...

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

Pros: awesome torque curve

Cons: trans

Phenomenal car. Would definitely buy another one. The power this produces is really fun. You would never expect from something that looks like it belongs to a grandma.

Test Drive Of The Buick Regal Gs 6 Speed Manual By Ilregal
