2004 Buick Regal Sedan GS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

After totalling my 1998 Buick Regal GS, I could only find 2 GS' on-line. One in Trenton, NJ area and the other in White Plains, NY. I emailed Coleman and the salesman called the next morning. A pristine condition fully loaded 2004 Black GS just off a three year lease with 42k enticed me to drive over 50 miles to see it. After getting the sticker reduced by over $1000, and seeing the excellent shape of the black paint, I bought it. Now I have a car that I know and love and am making sure that all the tips and techniques that I put into the first will go into the second. I also got an extended 3 year and 36k mile Major Guard Coverage GM Protection Plan, which was mostly paid for by my savings.


Favorite Features

Clearly the Regal, which looks like the family sedan, Century, is what is known as a "sleeper". It does not attract unwanted attention and can out perform 90% of the vehicles out there. And the 10% it cannot out perform, it can out drive because it does not look like the quick car like the others.


Suggested Improvements

As with my old GS, I upgraded the stereo adding a monoblock amp & subwoffer. I lowered the suspension with Eibachs-but I do not recommend it as the sidewalls of the Goodyear Assurance tires cause a bouncing effect on local streets. I added a hood plastic clear bra to protect the paint from chipping.

2004 Buick Regal Sedan GS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I love this car! Had a 99 GS, loved it too. Handsome, traditional exterior, roomy & comfortable inside. Nice seats. Lots of power, and a marvelous auto trans. Outstanding MPG on trips, especially considering the power. Quiet, comfortable ride, feels solid, no rattles. Big trunk. Both of these vehicles have been utterly reliable, and very inexpensive to maintain. A lot of folks laugh at the idea of a Buick, but I only need to impress myself. They're welcome to their expensive, maintenance-intensive German ego props. This Buick's a terrific buy, and I'm sorry they won't be making any more in 5 years.


Favorite Features

Engine/transmission integration. Great brakes, big trunk, good gas mileage, OnStar system, good highway cruiser.


Suggested Improvements

iPod compatable audio system.

2004 Buick Regal Sedan GS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I don't understand why Buick doesn't sell more of Regal GSs. The car has luxury, power, and dignity. Other drivers and consumers may dismiss the car as something a "blue hairs" would have. The GS goes and feels good while moving.


Favorite Features

The torque from the superchaged engine, the quiet and soft ride but firm when it has to be.


Suggested Improvements

Deep down, I don't like superchargers or turbocharges. I like good, old fashioned 'merican V8 iron. On the style side, which my wife won't like, I want a 2 door sedan.

Review

The Regal is a stable, reliable, good looking intermidiate size four-door sedan that gives you pride of ownership, along with every day utilization. The GS model package comes with a 240 HP supercharged 3.8 V-six, touring suspension and Goodyear Eagle tires that gives the Regal an impressive performance feel and handling. I previously owned a 1995 Regal for 5 years that had not one problem during that period demonstrating it's reliability and quality of workmanship. The Regal final assembly is in Oshawa, Ontario Canada.


Favorite Features

The upgraded supercharged engine, suspension and tires gives the driver a package that is comparable to BMW, Audi or Volvo. The leather seating comfortable and supportive, even on long trips.


Suggested Improvements

The exterior and interior design hasn't changed much in the past decade, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. It just needs a bit of a face lift. Rumor has it that this the last year for the Regal line. It's replacement will be the Lancer, a completely redesigned model.

Review

The Buick Regal is a great straight line performer, but struggles when you get into the twisties, yet can still stick 'em. It out runs mustanges, bmw 3 series, and other performance sedans, and nothing under 30 k can touch it in that department. The interior, and exterior, could use some freshening, but overall looks expensive, with leather, heated seats, premium sound system, and leather steering wheel. The exterior lacks the striking appeal, but it looks good in the burgandy colour, the chrome rims, also add a nice touch.


Favorite Features

-6.3 secs to 60. -nice brakes -expensive looks -overall appeal


Suggested Improvements

Update the interior, and exterior, mostly add some more gadgets like nav. system ect.
