Our 97 Skylark

1997 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan
Review
I purchased this vehicle in 2003. We all really liked it. However, one year later in 2004 it needed a new water pump. Imagine my surprise when I was told that the cost to replace most water pumps was about $150.00 but because of the way they built this car (quad 4 engine, a very poor design), it would be $640.00! Not only that, but any future repairs would also be very expensive as you practically had to take the engine out to get at anything. Our car repair service would not even look at it because it was so expensive to repair. They told me I would have to take it to a dealer. Well, as much as I liked this little car, I sold it that day!
Suggested Improvements
My advice, if you find a 6 cylinder Skylark, it would probably make you happy and be resonable to repair but stay away from the 4 cylinders.
