Indestructible

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Buick Skylark 4dr Sedan

The best first car I could have imagined. Sure it may not be winning any car shows but it was for just that reason that it was such a great first car. I put on 50,000 cruel miles in about 3 years with no major mechanical errors. Kind of a small backseat but 5 high schoolers can fit in with only minor squeezing. Overall a great first car and uber comfortable.




The best car to own

Built tough, ran great, got some major work done on it, but if basic car maintenance is done than it will run great. No problems until it decided to be 19 years old and call it quits. Great car until then.

This was my first vehilce and it turned out to be really reliable, so if your looking to put your son/daughter in there first car go for a nice looking 1990 Buick Skylark. Also, throw in a nice cd player and some good fresh speakers and you've struck gold.




Great first car

Vehicle: 1990 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan

Bought the car for 500 in 05, had 140k miles on it at the time. Great first car, had its problems here and there but nothing serious enough to ever leave me stranded, most reliable car ever owned, hit 175k on the odometer last month and seemed like it would have lasted the test of time if i hadnt been hit by someone, the tranny and engine worked splendid, the exterior had taken some damage over the long life she had but besides that the 3.3l V-6 ran fast and true and never gave me a bit of trouble, most expensive replace was probably belts and water pump, if you take car of this car it will last a life time,




Overall awesome car!!

The performance from my 2.3L Quad 4 is eager and satisfying, though it could use a lot more low-end torque. Comfort and fuel economy is good, unless you drive with a lead foot. Interior design is good, but why the heck couldn't they spare to put in some more gauges(Oil temp,etc.)! Build quality is good, and it is reliable as heck, if you do proper maintenance. Get one of these!!!

1990 skylark w/ noisy 2.5l

by on
Vehicle: 1990 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan

This little car is a great A-to-B car or family car. The Tech 4 2.5l 4- cylinder is really noisy, but will run forever. I made the mistake of thinking it was valves tapping or an engine knock. But the two different machincs I took it to both said similar remarks, "The engine has a plasic timing gear that makes a lot of noise, even brand new, but it is nothing to worry about. Just keep up on regular maintence and she'll run forever." I have only heard of imports that reliable, not a Buick. But this car has shown me GM has and can make a reliable 4-cylinder car that last. At 129k miles it'll prbably go another 200k.
