Outstanding performance and gas milage! Ride is very smooth, although handling is a little soft. LT1 V8 rocks, stero is excellent (even better with aftermarket radio). Tons of performance for the money
Excellent car. Tires lasted 80,000
miles. Replaced only the front brakes
after 85,000 miles. Only part
replaced on car was the fuel pump
after 85,000 miles. Still runs great
after 110,000 miles. Never tuned up.
Only expense has been for gas and oil.
Purchased used, base model and decent shape for a 20 year old car. Huge trunk, plenty of room inside and the lovely LT1 V8. The car accelerates well and stops quickly, surprising for a 2-ton sedan. Parts and maintenance are no problem, but don't bother with a GM dealership. They don't know anything about proper Buicks anymore and they give you excuses not to work on it. This car and the Chevy Caprice are sisters, so there's lots of support out there. For modders, this is the perfect sleeper: the 9C1 police kit will fit this car. My car is stock Buick and a LOT of people underestimate the performance! The only thing is, of course, fuel economy. The LT1 is a thirsty beast, but worth it.
