1990 Buick Skylark Sedan 4dr Sedan


Review

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.


Favorite Features

- Very Comfortable - Reasonable Gas Mileage - Reliability


Suggested Improvements

- Cup-holders (easy after marketfix but still...) - Small Back Seat - I'm pretty sure my lawnmower has more get up and go

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Comfort, reliability, casual look, overall great car


Suggested Improvements

No info on the "information center" but the car isn't being made anymore

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.


Favorite Features

Gas saver, easy to keep up with.


Suggested Improvements

Just tweak all the features a notch and hey you got a car for sell

Review

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,


Favorite Features

Powerful V-6 and great pickup when she was younger, great A/C, reliable!


Suggested Improvements

I hated using a key to get into my trunk! My 86 pontiac even had a trunk popper switch!! Maybe more leg room in the back, never sat in the back too often as it being my car but it would be nice to be able to sit back there if I needed to

Review

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!!!


Favorite Features

The engine. The Quad 4 really kicks for a stock engine. have raced against ford ranger(easy win), Buick century (almost one) and a few others and kept up with them for awhile. Darn thing lacks top end speed!


Suggested Improvements

Well, since it's not made anymore, there's not much to say. A flowmaster and a K&N air filter, etc. would be icing on the cake
