1996 Buick Regal Custom 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought @ ~60,000 miles - now @ 87000 miles, it seems to be falling apart. I just put work in, and it now needs more: * Check engine light flickers. New transmission needed. * Wheel squeaks. * Power steering fluid leaks * Coolant leaks, probably stemming from: * Radiator leaks. * Dashboard radio/heater lights are broken/work intermittently. * Gets ~16 miles per gallon. (Verified) * Radiator fan has died. * Spedometer appears unreliable. * Front right door is very difficult to close. * Plastic interior seems frail - breaks easily. * Front right door somewhat hard to unlock. * Dashboard is coming loose - vibrates while you drive. * Tape player eats tapes.

Favorite Features

Excellent interior! Low fuel light comes on early - @ 3.2/17.2 gallons remaining. Never run out of gas. Excellent air conditioning. (Fair heating) Very comfortable Lots of trunk space. Fast. Despite all of it's mechanical failures, it keeps running...

Suggested Improvements

Better mechanical quality! (Buying Japanese from now on...)
