Decent ride, lots of repairs though
By faststrat02 on


2000 Buick Regal LS 4dr Sedan


Where to begin.
Pros first:

-Car drives wonderfully on the highway, sometimes see 28-29 MPG.
Not bad for a 3.8
-A/C is ice cold (when it decides to work)
-3.8L V6 generally is a solid motor

-Window regulator is out on passenger right side (common for this car).

Unfortunately, I've
had to put quite a bit of money into this car. Where to start:

-Struts all around/upper strut mount
-Replaced both valve cover gaskets, tensioner assembly
-Tie rod ends replaced @ 80k
-Replace Hub bearings/front axle (both sides)
-City gas mileage is horrendous.
I've yet to see over 20mpg.
Average is 15-17.
Good car for highway travel, but NOT ideal for commuting.

Best Features

-Smooth steering -Semi-quiet at highway speeds -Torque is plentiful -Room for 4+ persons

Worst Features

-Interior build quality. Is it all GM, or did they really screw up the regal? dash rattles abound. -Bucket seats need side bolsters. Comfy like couches, but there is NO support -Front and rear cupholder placement abysmal. Again, what were they thinking? -Smaller diameter steering wheel, quite bulky.
