its a great car, lots of power, traction control turns on and off on it- 300,000. Rusty on the bottom end badly, dash light showing mileage and miles went out - 280k -300k, replaced transmission 200k, only since it was beat to death. Had a rim get rusty on the inside bead- chrome rims and it would start to leak all the time. Them are the only problems ive had car is hard as a rock.
240hp, easily smoke any 4 cylinder pos or 6 cylinder.
Alright, so, i have had this car for around a year and you know what?.... i wouldn't trade it for the world! it has had it's share of problems, not gonna lie. Infact, i have to spring for a new transmission at 200,000(km) because mine is destroyed. 2 windows don't work, the dash will sometimes go dark during night driving and i can see my speed or anything, it needs new front shocks and a muffler. But, this car stills rids good despite all this, it has never let me down and never left me stranded. I still get great gas mileage(car says 28 MPG in 25/75 city/hwy driving!) and great power output. and once i put a new transmission in, i know it will be great, just the way General Motors made it
Mine is a Regal LS with the performance package and EVERY option the car had that year (1999) Heated seats, leather, sunroof, Driver information center below the tach, Gran Touring Suspension, Monsoon stereo system, 16" alloy rims. It is basically a GS without a supercharger (which is fine, 'cause i really don't need to pay for premium gas or get slightly worse gas mileage)
so i suppose in answer to the question, my favorite feature is all of them! :)
I can't lie and say it is perfect, if i were to ask for any changes it would be that they could have given the interior a better build quality. I mean i love the look, quite honestly i think it is one of the best looking cars for an interior i have seen in any car form any year, i absolutely love the look, but a lot of stuff creeks or shakes or rattles or what have you, and that can be annoying on a dirt or rough road. However, you can have that problem corrected for some money, but, it should have been better in the first place. Also, the transmissions are known for having issues, not all of them do, but enough that you should be aware of that before buying.
this car is by far the best i have ever owned im looking for my next regal since mine was totaled. at 50+ mph head on collision i walked away with a brused knee and a broken heart to see her like that i only had to keep up regaular maintance the hole time i owned it. before the wreck it had just went over the 250xxx mile mark and still ran like it was brand new i know i could easily got another 250xxx miles out of her i would reccomend this car to every one for safty and reliability
I bought this car with only 19k miles on it. In three years time, I have had to replace almost every single engine part. The cup holder pulled off in my hand. The rear mirror leaked the auto-darkening stuff so you couldn't see out of it at all. The visors broke off. The gas gauge broke. The low tire & service engine lights have been on for 2 years regardless of all of the work that has been done. The heat and A/C went out. One window will only roll down halfway. The interior portion of the doors are separating from the exterior - which is severely rusting. This car is a piece of junk. It costs me about $2000 a year to keep it running. I am going to buy a foreign car as soon as I can.
I think this car has proven to be one of the best cars of the past decade. There are some things I wish had been designed differently but all in all, this car has been a gem. I have about 145K miles on it, and have had a repair or two. This is my third Buick and won't be my last.
Comfort-Seats are extremely comfortable and have held up well with proper leather treatment. Body styling/reliability-With regular care, the exterior is in immaculate condition; and no rust.
Interior materials could be slightly improved. Less plastic, more leather and vinyl. Overall, this car is fantastic.
