After 105000 miles, we have solved most
of the problems with our 96 Buick. The
worst problem has been the suspension
in the rear. The ride in the front seat
is fine. But the rear seat bottoms out
and is a very rough ride over the least
little bump. I returned the car to the
dealer with no solutions for the rear
suspension. We also had to replace all
the tires three times within five years
because of the suspension. We were
finally told to have the tires rotated
every 6000 miles( by a tire dealer) to
solve this problem. Also problems with
the engine light.
Good gas mileage on Highway, 28 to 30
Needs to be higher off the ground.
Have to crawl in and out of car. Rear
suspension needs big improvements.
I drive this car 7,500 miles/year and I'm glad I don't have to spend any more time in it. The leather seats are uncomfortable after more than 1 hour. At 60k the transmission started to hesitate on 1-2 shits. Trans. still working at 86k, but wondering how much life is left. Have been plagued by constant A/C issues. Some stupid little plastic part that controls where the "air" comes from is now on its 3rd replacement. Nothing like having the drivers side getting A/C and the passengers side getting heat. I have now replaced all 4 power window regulators...twice. Gas mileage is not great. 14 city/21 highway. My Crown Victoria was a much better car.
audio and A/C controls on steering wheel. Big trunk.
Quality build and quality materials. The car just feels cheap and cheaply put together. Dealer service has been perhaps the worst that I have ever experienced.
We like the quite spaciousness of the
interior without the bulky feeling of
some cars in this class. It's a car we
love to take for a evening drive...
with room for friends. A very nice car
but inconspicous car.
Comfortable and quite. Great sound
system with controls on steering wheel.
The copilot loves the abilty to control
passenger side heating/cooling.
Shift lever is a bit stiff. Outside
edge of seats are a bit high, making it
awkward for a shorter person to exit
