Where to begin.
-Car drives wonderfully on the highway, sometimes see 28-29 MPG.
Not bad for a 3.8
-A/C is ice cold (when it decides to work)
-3.8L V6 generally is a solid motor
-Window regulator is out on passenger right side (common for this car).
had to put quite a bit of money into this car. Where to start:
-Struts all around/upper strut mount
-Replaced both valve cover gaskets, tensioner assembly
-Tie rod ends replaced @ 80k
-Replace Hub bearings/front axle (both sides)
-City gas mileage is horrendous.
I've yet to see over 20mpg.
Average is 15-17.
Good car for highway travel, but NOT ideal for commuting.

This is my second Buick with the push rod 3.8. Good power and decent fuel economy. Buicks always feel more substantial than most Chevys and Pontiacs. These cars are a good used buy if you can buy from a caring original owner.

This car is great because of its quick acceleration, good size, and most importantly, its reliablity. The only problems I've ever had are the windows - 3 of 4 of the windows have malfunctioned and would go down without rolling back up. My only other complaint is the mileage isn't great - average of city and highway driving would be about 20 mpg. But I have not had a single problem with the way it runs. I love this speedy grandma car and will miss it when it's gone!
New alloy wheels, a standard body-colored grille on the GS and two new colors, Gold Metallic and Sterling Silver debut. Inside, there's now a split-folding rear seat and an optional side airbag for the driver on leather-lined Regals.
