2001 Buick Regal Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have had a Buick Regal Ls for the past year almost. Since we have had the car, we have had to replace the driver side & passanger side window regulator. Not so bad, but then our throttle decided to mess up. We still have yet to fix it & I would love to have my car back. Anyone know what that could be? Won't go over 35mph right now because of the problem.

Review

It maybe an older car but sure has everything i need and shocking it is great in the snow. Ive had no issues with except the chairs are kinda uncomfortable. So taking long trips ends up hurting my back in driver or passenger seat but could just be my car.

Review

My Regal LS has plenty of power combined with 30 mpg economy. The big trunk is endless with the fold-down back seats. I used it to haul lumber, but don't tell my wife.


Suggested Improvements

Dash lights need resistor repair. Spark plugs are difficult to access.

Review

Had to replace passenger window regulator. did it myself for 100 dollars,was easy to do. car has 50,000 miles and runs very good. The seats are very nice and the car rides very good. The four wheel disc brakes stop the car very well, and In the rain the traction control works well, and so did the brakes when i had to make a quick wet stop. Overall i am impressed with this car.


Favorite Features

The sound system is nice and the ride is very good. the seats fold down and that was very handy the other day.


Suggested Improvements

The power windows should be more reliable. General motors should recall the window regulators. this car dose have some recalls, make sure you are sure you have them done.

Review

..purchased (used) in March, 2005, at 18,100 miles; BTW, this car was made in Canada, not the U.S.A. Was a single- owner vehicle. Now has over 90,800 miles - has had two major electrical failures; now on its third rack-and- pinion assembly; vent. fan assembly conked out in the first month; ignition switch broke after fourth year; oil pan leaked badly and cost almost $300 to fix (a support strut has to be removed first!) Fuel economy is so-so; nothing spectacular. Transmission has been serviced every 30,000 miles and looks and acts like new. Seats are the most comfortable of any car ever owned. Overall, not a great car, but a good one. Will keep it until it "croaks" for good!!!


Favorite Features

Comfortable seats; excellent radio/sound system; very good acceleration with that V-6 engine. Paint has held up very well and looks like new.


Suggested Improvements

Car is no longer in production, so question would appear to be moot.

2001 Buick Regal Sedan GS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I bought my used 2001 Regal GS one year ago with 113K miles for $4K and could not be happier with my purchase. I don't know of any other used car that can be had for $4K that would be nearly as nice as this one. The supercharged engine, the Monsoon audio system, the cushy leather seats, overall balance of sport/comfort/reliability. Only fixes needed after 1 year are a couple of worn out wheel bearings and my ABS sensor acts up now and then. Other than that, this car still feels very strong and believe it will last another 100K if kept up properly. I've owned 9 cars in my lifetime and this one is faster and more comfortable than any of them, not to mention by far the most inexpensive!


Favorite Features

SUPERCHARGER, Monsoon audio, cushy leather (not that hard, european stuff), overall comfort, handsome & toned-down styling, large trunk, easy access to all controls and fuse panel.


Suggested Improvements

Interior design is pretty old school but I still like it. Until recently, my wife actually thought that my car was an '89 (seriously!). Steering wheel hasn't worn very well on left hand side and I'm having trouble finding a cover that is large enough.

Review

I bought it new in 01. The one thing that I didn't like was the soft ride especially when cornering. I got this corrected with a set of potenza tires and have found the supercharger more than adequate. No mechanical problems, no squeaks or rattles. I have 147,000 miles now and am considering replacing it with either a lacrosse or a Taurus sho. I might look at used on the sho due to new price.

2001 Buick Regal Sedan LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought super clean,29k miles.Drives good. Comfortable to drive/ride. Tons of room. Great gas milage for a larger V6.I take very good care of my cars.For some reason I bought a $1500 warranty and have had over $5000 worth of work(parts and labor).Normally I do all my own wrenching. List of problems: Intake manifold(very common),5 rack & pinions(very common), catalytic converter, both front wheel bearings and control arm bushings, power steering pump, broken stabilizer links,valve cover gaskets and a few more to come.Still have a year left on the warr.I would think mine was a problem trade-in but my sisters 98 regal was just as bad,although my tranny has not crapped out yet


Favorite Features

sun roof, steering wheel controls, heated seats, power and gas milage.


Suggested Improvements

Reliability is low....trust my tractor more.

Review

Bought the car used. Wife used it in sales. Replaced tie rod ends at 30,000 miles. warranty covered. Most GM cars have front suespension problems. I too have had power window problems. One time it is the motor then the switch. I think that is a dealer scam or lack of training. Changed transmission fluid at 50,000 miles. No tran problems at 117,000. Still gets over 30 MPG on highway. Always used mobile one motor oil. Just replaced O2 sensor. Uses no oil.


Favorite Features

Controls for heater and radio


Suggested Improvements

Power windows, stronger suespension parts. While driving at night a lot of heat from dashboard and I guess computer systems.
