1996 Buick Skylark Custom 4dr Sedan


Really awesome for a first car. With
the V6, outperforms most other cars
I've driven. Stomp on the gas in
optimal gear-drop ranges (25-30 for 1st
and 60-65 for 2nd) and you feel like
you're about to launch. Elegant design,
love the color (green). Joy to drive,
feels 100% stable even at 90+. Seems
like a car people love to hate though.
Has needed some expensive repairs.

Best Features

Power, appearance, and general "feel" behind the wheel.

Worst Features

Fast but could be faster? 155hp for a 3.1 V6 is a little disappointing. Wish it hasn't needed so many expensive repairs (brake overhaul, serpentine/tensioner, and just seems expensive to work on).
