Automotive comfort food....perfect !

1998 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan
I simply cannot say enough in favour of this great car. I had a Cutlass Ciera before this and the Regal way outclasses that as you might expect. I wanted a cruising-type ride as I have a long freeway commute every day, and something that would handle IT tech calls to businesses with comfort and classy style. Back then "Government Motors" could sure build 'em. 96K miles and routine maintenance only. This is a tank-- solid and safe and substantial in every way. Not sportscar handling, but that's what Pontiacs (were) for. This will float you down the interstate in a plush cocoon, and deliver you calm and relaxed. It's automotive comfort food, nearly perfect. Ps. Look for Canadian-built.
V-6 power ! A real road-trip cruiser. Soothing ride. Quiet cabin. Power everything. CD stereo sounds great. Comfy seats--for a "42 Short" the 6- way adjustment is welcome--you sit up higher than in most cars. The styling is refined, and doesn't attract tickets. Sometimes the "old man" knows best !
Do something about the annoying pop-up cupholders. Flimsy and always in the way, a sour note in an otherwise sweet and mellow car.
