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.

Who would've thought i'd rather

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Having never owned a GM car, I was not sure what to expect. I'd done a lot of research and, for the value, the Buick Regal kept coming up. I found a beauty, a 2002 for $3,000. Looks and runs like new, great power, luscious leather interior (spotless), one of the finest sound systems I've ever heard, hugs the road like a bear. I absolutely love this car. The only other car I loved this much was a 1974 Volvo that we put 360,000 miles on. I don't know if I'll get the same with the Regal, but I do know that maintenance is key to vehicle longevity. We'll see!

Ive driven many cars, but the 2002 Buick Regal LS is by far my favorite car i have driven so far. It is much more comfortable then Japanese cars, and sure goes alot more than it shows. I drove from Rhode Island to Montana in this car, and it revved strong at 2k at 70mph, ive had v8's that revved higher. Amazing gas mileage, only spent around $200 from RI to South Dakota, with gas around 3.50. Bought this car a year ago, at 3k with 115 thou. Something about American cars makes the ride better, foriegn cars dont have personalities like my Ford and Buick do, I love that thing, even though my gas gauge is broke and my odometer is gone, this car took me 2500 miles across our great nation.Buy USA




10 yrs old and still

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

We bought this car when it had 50,000 miles on it.Now at 105,000. Still going good!Regular work done on it like brakes,rotors,tires,oil changes,etc. That is all normal wear and tear. On second muffler but first one was a cheaper one. Biggest expense was the security in the ignition and key.Kept shutting the car down, making it think it was being stolen.Brought it to dealer and they bypassed the security chip-$380. Most expensive repair done to it. Great in the snow too! Northeast can be brutal! Stereo has shorted out but that's an easy fix too! No major issues. Would recommend a buick. Trading her in next week, need an upgraded vehicle with newer specs!

Just purchased a 2002 LS with 76K. From the initial drive I automatically fell in love with the car. All the positive comments has made me feel even better about my purchase today.......




Engine not reliable

Vehicle: 2002 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Good car but stiff steering. Engine died after 50,000 miles and despite good maintenance. Mechanic says a very classic problem with the Buick and Pontiac with 3.8 engine. OK if use best synthetic oil (Mobil One) every 2000 miles.

This is the first car I've owned that wasn't a Toyota Camry. This car is BY FAR a better vehicle than the 1999 Camry I got rid of to buy this. I will NEVER go back to a Camry. This car is very comfortable, has power, mileage with this 6 cylinder is about the same as the Camry's 4 cylinder. You can't go wrong - Consumer Reports named this the most reliable car!!!!!
