Decent ride, lots of repairs though
By faststrat02 on
2000 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan
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.
-Semi-quiet at highway speeds
-Torque is plentiful
-Room for 4+ persons
-Interior build quality.
Is it all GM, or did they really screw up the regal?
dash rattles abound.
-Bucket seats need side bolsters.
Comfy like couches, but there is NO support
-Front and rear cupholder placement abysmal.
Again, what were they thinking?
-Smaller diameter steering wheel, quite bulky.
