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


Review

In the five months since July 2003, I have driven this car on one 7,000 mile and one 2,000 mile trip in every conceivable mix of traffic, road surface and weather (including some high elevation snow). It handles very predictably under all conditions, has plenty of quickly available power to handle passing or mountain driving, and returns excellent gas mileage. On one occasion, I drove just under 1,000 miles in one day, with another driver relieving me for only about 100 miles. The car was comfortable and not tiring, even with the excess miles/day. Fuel economy hovers around 30 miles/gallon on highway trips.


Favorite Features

Solid, quiet car with no manufacturer defects. Supercharger provides excellent throttle response when needed, but doesn't effect gas mileage in normal driving.


Suggested Improvements

Differentiate the GS styling from the rest of the Buick family. This car is very different from the Century and even from the Regal LS. It would be an improvement to feel more "sporty", and a little less "sedan".

Review

A lot of people have said how much they love the power of this car. You can only appreciate it if you drive it for yourself. But first drive everything else in its class. You will be amazed by the power of the supercharged engine. The amazing thing is how smooth the car is. It is the perfect blend of power and smooth ride.


Favorite Features

Torque, torque, torque. The engine is awesome. The sound system (monsoon) is great also.


Suggested Improvements

The leather is soft but feels very plastic like. The cup holders could use improvement.

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


Review

Strong, smoooth, fuel efficient engine. Comfortable interior, needs more lumbar. Lots of toys. Some quibbles: climate control less than intuitive, Smartstalk wiper and cruise combined, no mist function, small glovebox, backseat for kids only, glass in rear window optically "off", embedded antenna weak.


Favorite Features

Auto headlights, delay locks, CDs sound great, climate control, oil monitor, trouble free. Cheap to insure. Heated seats.


Suggested Improvements

Memory seats, bigger glovebox, copy ergonomics from Impala. Redesign console with proper cupholders.
