1998 Regal GS 3.8 Supercharged
By Elrod on


1998 Buick Regal GS 4dr Sedan


Bought the car used with 12,000 mile
bumber-to-bumper warrantee. Had to
replace both front and rear brakes
under warrantee. Drivers window
switch touchy in humid weather. Cup
holder very poorly placed and cheaply
made. "Sport shift" option too easy to
turn off by accident. Upside? Looks
very sharp - tinting windows and adding
vent covers helped. I surprise a lot
of people with the 3.8 supercharged
engine - very few 4 doors on the road
are faster. I had a 91 Pontiac
Bonneville (non-supercharged) before
this and the difference is dramatic.
Too bad (good thing?) it's
electronically governed to 115 MPH.

Best Features

3.8 Liter Supercharged engine - 240 horses beats most any American sedan and a lot of foreign cars costing 3x as much.

Worst Features

Fix the cup holder so it can handle a Supersize cup. Better design on storage (place for shades, radar detector, bigger glove compartment.
