I purchased this vehicle in the spring of 2000. At the time it had 110,000 miles on it. It ran and drove as great as it looked. However, being an avid automotive DYI nut, I replaced all shocks/struts, breaks, H2O hoses, water pump, and tune-up items. I have enjoyed over 5,000 trouble free miles since and expect many 10thís of thousand more. Interior space is very generous and the trunk will hold more then enough luggages for any trip planed. This car is truly a well kept secret. I time itís true spot in Buick history will be recognized. If you are fortunate enough to purchase one of these hand crafted Buicks, be prepared for a lot of attention from strangers young and old, male and female.
Classic, non cookie cutter styling, attention grabber, high collector potential.
Should have had a performance addition available from factory. Few after market performance upgrades available. Needs more pep to match image.
Everything worked when I got the car,
and there have been only minor
glitches. Rides very quietly but
handles well. Sound quality of upscale
cassette deck and radio w touch screen
great. Touch controls are simple and
fun to operate. Gas mileage quickly
improved after first month of real
driving, to where 28 highway, 19 city
is common, and on 87 octane. GM 3800
engine more than adequate on light car.
Build quality and paint are fantastic
as it was practically a hand made car.
About the only thing I fault on this
car is that the brakes seem a little
weak, and they have been inspected bled
