Engine Not Reliable
By buickuser on
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.
Comfortable and good overall features.
Heavy, stiff, painful after 300 miles. Gas mileage is no good.
