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,


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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!!!


Best 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!


Worst Features

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

Review

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.


Best Features

Relaiblility and comfort.


Worst Features

More horsepower overall.

This car is too low. It's a pain to get
in and out of. I really wish i never
bought this car.
