Nice Car but Typical GM Quality
By TechMom on
2000 Buick Regal GS 4dr Sedan
This car has been solid so far in engine and tranny - it's everything else that's the problem. However, to date it has needed over $4000 in extended warranty work. ABS, sunroof, fuel level sensor, climate display, front wheel bearing, tie rod, key assembly, window motors, etc. We're at 73K, and to be honest, I'm frightened of the future. When this car starts costing me too much in repairs, I'm buying a Honda, We've always bought American (GM, specifically), but have come to the realization that they (GM)still don't know how to build true "quality" products. After all this time being trounced by Honda and Toyota, you'd think they would have learned by now.
Reputable dealer and excellent service (the main reason we considered and bought a Buick!), Monsoon stereo, power seats, power when I need it.
GM needs to take a hard look at parts that consistently break in model after model, year after year - window motors, for example.
