Bought for $8,000 with 54K miles on it, now it has 149K miles and is still running strong. Only one repair at 110K ($400 total) for coolant pump and intake manifold (imagine that! A GM with a bad coolant pump or a bad intake manifold!!!) Never broke down, just leaked coolant and took it in when it got real bad. Only oil and tire changes otherwise. Everything on this car works great, never has had any alignment work and still rides as smooth as day it was bought. AC and heat still work great and AC hasn't even been recharged. The only thing that has stopped working is the tape player, it has a tape stuck in it but who hasn't been replaced because radio is preferred and who uses tapes today?
Smooth ride and reliability. Never left anyone stranded. Unbelievable quality, with exception to the 1 repair it's comparable to Toyota and Honda! This should make you feel better about GM. http://www.detnews.com/2004/autosinsider/0406/30/c01-199247.htm Buicks quailty is great! Better than many know.
Hello GM, perhaps the thousands of complaints haven't set in, but it's time to install better coolant pumps and intake manifolds. And if that means buying them from the Japanesse, then so be it.
