Review of the 2002 Buick Regal

  • Regal is ready for a re-do. But for now, it still provides an enticing combination of feature content and performance for a relatively affordable price.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful supercharged V6 in GS, spacious interior, clean styling.

  • Cons

    Dull image, dated interior design, low-quality leather.

  • What's New for 2002

    For 2002, the biggest news in the Regal lineup is the continuation of the upscale Joseph Abboud model along with a new Dark Bronze Mist exterior color. Additional wood grain trim will be added to all Regals later in the year and LATCH child seat attachment points are now standard.

Second time around

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Buick Regal GS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

I bought this very same new in Sept 2002 and kept it for 4 years and traded it for an 06 LaCrosse CXL which I trades in on an 08 Silverado LTZ. even thought 06 Buick had more features, it didn't pull the mountians or get the gas mileage the 2002 Regal GS did. This year we decided we would get a used car and I was searching the net. I found our old Buick at a dealership about 40 miles from here and it had less than 60K miles on it. It had aroudn 32K when I traded. The dealership had bought it at an auction, but the car was still in great shape. We missed car after getting the LacCross and are very happy we found it again. Great gas mileage, handling and power in a nice size car.

This car is just right. Right size outside, easy to drive, maneuver, park and looks great in white. Right size inside with plenty of room, comfort and luxury for four adults. The car is just right for spirited driving because it's invisible to law enforcement.

I like this Buick Regal GS Supercharger very much. I have experienced some problems but overall love the car. One thing I have experienced is that when driving at night, when I put on my high beams all the lights on the dash and my head lights go out, I have to hit high beam switch again and all come back on, this has happened numerous times. Also, my Low Coolant light came on, I took to my garage and all was fine, reserve was low but not empty, radiator was full. The light stays on when I am driving saying low coolant, but all if fine, temp. gauge normal on this car stays in the middle. I really like this car.

This car is the real deal. Great looking, comfortable, fuel efficient, very quick, and invisible to law enforcement (especially when painted senior citizen white). As a used car value, it can't be beat. It makes a lot more economic sense than other so called "sport sedans". Try it, you'll definitely like it!

I have driven a 1998 Buick Regal LS for past 5 yrs. I just traded it in for the 2002 Buick Regal GS Sedan, with turbocharger. I am a hugh fan of muscle cars, meaning I like my cars to perform quickly and quietly. I have owned Chrys, Pont, and Olds. I have enjoyed driving all these cars. The 1998 was leaking oil (small amt.), but ran so good I did not want to get rid of it. I decided that updating to 2002 was a wise move. I tried a 2006 Chev. Impala, but liked the ride and performance of the Buick so much more. Having just purchased it 4-13-06 I have to drive it more and see if it compares as well as the l998, which was excellent. Only draw back is having to use 91 Octane.

This car is the ultimate in road driving and great in the city. I love the clean lines,the interior is a dream - friends who own BMWs, Lexus, Bentley and cadillacs are surprised how this car is so "smooth" in it's ride both inner city with holes and on the road. My auto is fully loaded withe heated leather seats, roof, automatic lights, etc. No one believes this car was less than $30,000. I won't make the mistake again by leaving buicks.
