Well Built, Understated Bullet

Vehicle1999 Buick Regal GS 4dr Sedan
ReviewMy'99 Buick Regal GS has been
spectacular. Until 2003 it was the
fastest sedan built in North
America, and no one knew - a true
sleeper. Fabulous seats for big guys,
with enough legroom and headroom for
Full-Size Americans even with a
sunroof. Lots of glass and an open
cockpit. This car has the best ride-
handling balance of any in America when
driven at 6/10ths - it's a beautiful
combination of supple and firm.
Monsoon stereo is fantastic. Huge trunk
swallows 4 golf bags. Flowing exterior
lines look great, distinctive. Its been
rock-solid reliable so far.
The only real minus has been poor gas
mileage but I am guilty of leadfooted
Best FeaturesMonster supercharged V6, combined with automatic transmission. Huge, black shock tower brace. Ten gallon headroom, great visibility. Excellent seats.
Worst FeaturesReplace the idiot lights with real gauges, and this would be the best American cluster offered. Needs a fold down back seat. Get electric seat recliners. Steering wheel missing leather in spots. Lose 107mph speed limiter (the car would top 140mph). Needs a manual trunk release.
