"Comfort, Value, Style, and Interior room my major reasons for purchase. And have not been disappointed. Performance has held up through the years. Have also enjoyed the interior features. A lot of highway miles for me. Decent city mileage. Good visibility and braking for safety.
The only thing; the suspension and handling after 6-7th year of use noticeably changed. Though I've only done the minimum of maintenance. Mysterious Slate Grey color and finish has held up well over time. Though I just have a carport. Appears Dark Green or Dark Blue in different lighting. Always complimented upon by others. Wish I could trade up to another Buick!"
"I bought this car used in 2007, with 38000 miles on it. With the exception of normal maintenance, (brakes, tires, oil, etc.), car has been exceptionally great value for the money. I have talked to others in the area that own the same line of vehicle, +/- 2 years of mine, and, all say the same thing. Would not give it away for anything."
"Many trips to Florida, New York, Canada, never had a problem, extremely reliable, handles great, great engine- really takes off, spoiled with the options we had, remote start, heated seats, back up signal."
"My wife drove this car for 6 years (75,000 miles) and then we gave it to our son who has driven it for 4 years (30000 plus miles). We have had no major problems at all. It is a very dependable car, changed oil every 3-40000 miles. I think we had a couple of things worked on that cost about $400 on 2 separate occasions."
"With a V8 it gets way better gas mileage than my Toyota ever did.
The performance and handling are exceptional. The car is quiet, smooth and very comfortable. the only thing I would add is a heated steering wheel and a back up camera."
