2000 Buick Regal Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Regal is a prime example of brand management in the auto industry. Though it is the same car as the conservatively styled Century, Regal gets stronger engines, front bucket seats and sportier styling tweaks — all designed to give it a more youthful personality and draw younger buyers to the Buick brand.

Exterior
A bolder grille and different rear-end styling give the Regal a more aggressive appearance than the Century, though the two are from the same mold. LS models ride on 15-inch wheels and tires, and the GS wears 16-inch aluminum wheels with wider rubber.

Interior
Front bucket seats, air conditioning with separate temperature controls for the driver and front passenger, a cassette player, tire-inflation monitor, tilt wheel, and power windows, locks and mirrors are standard. A new split folding rear seatback augments the 16.7-cubic-foot trunk and allows carrying long items such as skis.

Under the Hood
LS models come with General Motors' venerable 3.8-liter V-6, which achieves 200 horsepower. The GS versions use a supercharged version of that engine with 240 horsepower, enough to turn the Regal into a four-door hot rod that challenges some sports cars in the stoplight grand prix. The supercharged V-6 requires premium gas. Both engines team with a four-speed automatic transmission.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
