1992 Buick Regal Sedan Gran Sport 4dr Sedan


Review

Purchaed in 2/1992 and have had to only replace water pump and turning signal box. I live in Texas so the heat has wrecked paint job, leather seats in front. Last 3 months though radiator sprung leak, power steering and some basic electrical (1 power window, sunroof off and on again. It doesn't look great, but afraid to get rid of it. I've left many cars in the dust with speed of take-off (fast motor). Fuel injected if that makes a difference. Wish I knew if engine could be stabbed into another car. I would do that in a heartbeat. Oh year, when A/C worked it froze you out, even in 100+degrees. Love this car(and when I bought it I thought it was a granny car) No way.


Best Features

Handling, engine speed, durability, few repairs (hope to get A/C fixed by next summer. Dependability and the windshield wipers directionals are cool.


Worst Features

Better paint job, no floating gas gauge,better placement of windshield fluid tank.Used to automatically lock all doors when I got in and closed the door...that was a pain, but no more, guess that's broken too.

Review

How many 20 year old males do you know,
that are dying to own a Buick Regal
Gran Sport? This was me, every day,
asking my neighbor lady to sell me her
car. One day she came home with a new
car, & told me where I could find her
92 Regal. For 5K I drove home in my
very first car. I've had that Buick
for almost 4 years now, and the only
complaint I have is the brakes. All 4
calipers, rotors, lines, & the booster
have been replaced. The brake pads wear
out every year just like clockwork. No
matter what, the brakes always feel
weak. Other than brakes & routine
mantainence, I've had no major problems
with the car. 126K & still running
like a top.


Best Features

*Don't laugh, but it's the windshield wipers that go opposite directions. They remind me of old cars from the 50's. Too bad GM doesn't do this on the new Regal. I love driving this car in the rain! *I'm convinced that the 3800 V6 is one of the best engines GM has ever made!


Worst Features

*Brake system needs serious help. *Larger gauges *"pump-set" parking brake is stupid *oil filter is a pain to change

Review

ive been driving this car since 5/03
has 137k mi. but still feels tight and
generally drives like new. brakes just
got done and stop well though take some
warm up time 3.8 has good torque off
the line. steering is tight esp. for a
buick and the suspension though
somewhat harsh in town has plenty of
travel and smooths out on hgwy. a good
solid car with a great engine and wont
make you feel like youve come right out
of the retirement community (i'm 20)


Best Features

3.8L torque, 16" rims, interior materials wear well


Worst Features

cheesy fake wood inside, cheap leather, paint discoloration, tranny upshifts too soon, too hesitant to downshift

Review

The first ten years I had no problems
except for the poor paint job. At the
middle of year ten, I had to buy 3
alternators, and now the transmission
is gone out. the electric antennae has
been replaced 3 times and still does
not work. My 2 wireless entry work but
cannot fit a keychain. Dealer service
poor in FL and NC. Spent $1500 and car
returned in worst shape.


Best Features

power, appearance, longevity


Worst Features

Brakes, rotors transmission, warranty and wireless entry connectors strenthened or more reasonable to replace holders so it can be fit to keychain
