I got lucky on this car! A neighbor of mine had this vehicle sitting in his garage for nearly six years. His wife died...He sold it to me for $850 cash! Pristeen condition, only 92000 original miles! I slapped on new tires, and replaced the fuel filter, as I worried about the quality of the gasoline after sitting for six years...but no problems...Just hit 110,000 after two years of ownership....new brakes and a new battery--typical maintenance stuff. I cannot emphasize how nice this Buick drives, and it should last me at least another 100,000 miles! I have now owned three Buicks in my life...all three were reliable and very comfortable vehicles...Buick just might be the best American passenger cars, dollar for dollar!
I have never owned a buick but I found
this one reasonably priced and I
needed cheap transportation. I have
been pleasantly surprised at how
dependable it has been. I have
replaced the battery and two sensors.
The car has been great. There is an
exhaust odor in the cabin and it
smokes a little after sitting a couple
of days. The hood rattles a bit on
I bought this car several years ago
with 66,000 miles on it. It now has
121,000 and I've had next to no
problems with it. It's fun to drive,
has good handling and gets 26 mpg on
the highway. My car came with just
about every luxury feature you can
imagine short of a sunroof and heated
sideview mirrors. The ride is very
smooth and the interior is very quiet.
It is great on long trips. The trunk
is enormous. It doesn't burn or leak
any oil. The exterior styling is a
little too conservative but it more
than makes up for it in value. I'd buy
another in a heartbeat. It's the best
vehicle I've ever owned.
The engine runs at 2,000 rpms at 70
mph. The shifts are very smooth and
the interior is nice and quiet.
Everyone who rides in it raves about
the comfortable seats.
The headlight switch on the dash has a
tiny light on it so you never know if
your lights are on during the day.
I've had to replace the alternator
several times. It's fairly inexpensive
($50.00) and easy to replace yourself
but I've done it too often.
up to now had no problem, but just
recently had to replace heater blower
motor-the air conditioner exchanger is
leaking and I have to replace it--also
had toreplace radiator core because it
leaks. rather expensive coming all at
