This was my first car at 131k miles. As soon as I got it it started having problems. The radiator cracked and needed to be replaced, then the heater core went and got antifreeze all over the floor on the passenger side. Other than that I get about 24 mpg overall, but I drive through a lot of hills and it takes quite a bit of gas to lug the 3800 lb car around. The engine is plenty powerful and I've never had any problems with it or the transmission. Just the cooling/heating system that needs work.

Have been unable to find water leak in rain that causes water to set on driver side front floor. Anti lock brake dash light and service engine soon dash light keeps going on and then back off. Unable to find problem. Also had oil leak that was repaired, cost $900. Horn problem that was repaired and worked for 1 month, cost $280.

Wife's car, worst problem so far was the a/c condenser. The front brakes only lasted 20k, then replaced. 3.1 v6 runs great. 85k now. It has been the perfect car for her, I like it too. Suspension is soft.

I'm not your typical Buick owner, I
bought my 1st Skylark when I was 24, I
am now 31. I can't say enough about
how I love my Buick. It is safe,
reliable and I enjoy driving it. Yes,
I too have repaired & replaced my fair
share of things, but with over 107k
miles on it, that's to be expected.
The worst repair I had to make was
replacing the transmission at 90k miles.
This is my 2nd Skylark, I lost my 1st
in '97 in a nasty accident (rear-ended
at a stoplight by a 12-ton truck).
Since I walked away from that, I was
determined to find myself another one.
