I get great fuel economy with this car around 34 MPG Highway 20 City. This is a great winter car when you get the Goodyear Tire (Assurance). I cut right through the snow with this car with these tire...

It's not all that expensive of a car, so you get what you pay for. The age tends to make things break down more easily. I have had some transmission problems.

had the car for 6 years was in front lawn for 2 and stolen for a couple months worked grat after that great comuter car put 50k miles on it its at 120000 now has some engine problems one cylnder missfires wastes gas went from being 28 mpg to 9-13 mpg in the course of a few months cars garbage now but i still thrash it around for beign in bad shape/ condition u can still do 110-130 in it (downhill) without a ton of problems but it shakes like no other dont recomend going above 70-80 in these cars... but overall the engine lasted long for the wear and tare i put on it god lasting car... but one thing to be weary about is that the window motors go out very easily so dont over use them.

Longest lasting car

I've had this car for 8 years, and it has always been reliable. There have been issues, since it lived in the salty north for years, there's a bit of rust. Even after everything else stopped working, the engine and transmission kept going to 180,000 miles, but a new tranny is worth more than the car, so it was time to give it up, even though I'm still driving it through town...very slowly.

Bought this car used at 60K and have only had 1 bill for cooling service which was neglected by previous owner. It gets great gas mileage and outbeat our Escort! Benefits still going strong at 100K? V6 power, electric everything, cruise, smooth ride, excellent gas mileage, cheap operating costs, very roomy & comfortable ride. Disadvantage? Huge turning radius makes city parking a headache.

Comfy Car

by from Virginia on January 11, 2010

I adore this car. I've had it over a year now and haven't had a single problem. I usually don't drive it over 65-70 mph since it's so old but it's been very reliable. It also has very comfortable seat...

Mundane Everyday Driver

by from Canton, OH on January 7, 2009

Ugly exterior, boring interior, handled like a boat through corners, below average horsepower. This is a car that proves Buick is a wanna-be luxury company that fails.
