2003 Buick Regal GS Sedan FWDReview

2003 Buick Regal Gs (3.8l V6) — This is the Camry of North American cars. Just a size bigger and little bit less fuel efficient. This car is the most reliable of the Buick line and Buick is the most reliable brand from the North American's. The engine is responsive and better for highways; fuel economy is average for a car of this size. 26 Mpg with a highway-focused tempo. The steering wheel feels light but the windows allow for much visibility. Interior space is generous and sound-proofing is just above above average. Suspension is soft (too soft). I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a good full-size, reliable and affordable, sedan.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good, practical, reliable car. Good visibility. Ease of use of instruments

Cons: Very "ordinary" car: exciting aspect is quasi-absent. Lack of lateral support (seating)

2003 Buick RegalReview

Best All Around Buick — Performance is lively in every respect. The drivetrain is as close to bullet proof as they come. Build quality is quite good. The exterior is on the "classy bland" side, interior is relatively well laid out and executed, with the exception of lack of interior storage space. Buick just ignores this issue on most models. Cost of ownership is reasonable, except for the heavy footed driver. This model leads all other Buick models in fun factor. If you have to have a sporty Buick, this is the one!

Pros: Power, handling, brakes, and overall package

Cons: Interior storage, lighting and HVAC controls (AC compressor runs when not needed)
