Have enjoyed driving the Skylark Gran Sport for almost five years. Bought the car with 144000 miles and it now has 185000. I wouldn't be moving on to a new rig, but recently developed a drivetrain noise that sounds like expensive repairs will soon be here. However, I have really enjoyed driving the little Buick. It gets 26-28 mpg reliably, good performance, fun to whip thru the curves with it's "riding on rails" suspension. I have fixed a few things (alternator- water pump- radiator re-done) but overall it's been some good cheap driving. I like Buicks- great cars.
The car is NICE LOOKING...sporty. Very good fuel economy, with POWER at the same time! better than an underpowered import. The "hybrid" cloth/leather seats are nice. Great paint- still looks good after 15 years. Good sized trunk.
Buick hasn't made a Skylark in several years, so no need to improve... :-)
