It's so comfortable to drive, roomy and reliable, that after 175k miles, I just can't convince myself to trade it in on something new. It's been absolutely reliable only breaking down once needing a new water pump. It's really nice on long road trips as the seats are like sitting in a Laz-E- Boy or something. Never had parts of my anatomy fall asleep or anything. Perfect carpool car as there is tons of room in the back seat for even the largest of adults. Gas mileage has been respectable averaging about 17-20 mpg in the city. I've had 3 carseats across the back seat for the last two years and there's plenty of room. Huge trunk for double stroller and all the other kid supplies.
Engine - extraordinary workhorse, reliable, torque when you need it but smooth as silk. Comfort, hard to beat a Buick's ride quality. Outstanding highway creuising comfort. Digital automatic climate control.Dual zone sure is nice. Very large trunk.
Outside chromed trim around the top of the doors broke and it hard to come by. Radio has started acting flakey, not wanting to come on right away, but it does come on eventually. Kinda weird.
