"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."
Pros: "smooth ride, quiet ride, reasonable gas mileage"

"While its appearance was dated when the car was new, it has all the ride qualities that has made Buick popular, especially with older folks like me.
Very smooth and quiet ride. Gets nearly 30 mph on open road and a little over 22 in suburban driving.
Rear seat space is larger in newer models, but solidly adequate."
Pros: "Solid, reliable and comfortable transportation."
Cons: "Can't get all the features I want in any one car."

"As a USAF pilot with a wife and 3 children with 22 years of service. I needed 2 new car with no warranty or reliability problems every 2 years. I've owned Mercury, Dodge, Rambler, Buick, Pontiac, Oldsmobile and Cadillac. My wife loved the Cadillacs and I preferred Buicks and one Mercury. This is based on experience under some extreme situations such as living overseas for 5 years on 3 Continents. I'm 80 years old. I have owned an automobile for 61 years and owned many used autos."
"This has been the most dependable, most comfortable car I've ever owned. Over 200,000 miles and going strong. Wish it would last forever! The car just floats going down the road. Average 26-31 mpg. I will definitely be buying another Buick."
"This is probably the best car I ever owned. Very reliable. Great in all New England weather. I was passing 4 wheel drive vehicles without issues. Traction control is a little tricky at times but once you get used to it no problems. Definitely would recommend Buicks to anyone."
"Great driving car, a little loose in the curves but overall a good handling car. Fantastic fuel mileage from the 3.8 v6 engine, using no alcohol gasoline it is good for 35+ mpg at 70 mph. Using 10% ethanol it is good for 32+ mpg at 70 mph. Have only replaced brakes and tires. Great dependability."
