"Bought this car, driven by senior adults, in 2004 with 35000 miles. 1996 was the last year (1989-1996) this model was produced.Added platinum plugs ( 100,000life) and stainless steel exhaust, and some other good features this final year. Has everything Buick offered except a sun roof. No major expense at all. No power equipment has been replaced and no electrical problems. I've also got a loaded 2000 Century Limited Edition which has had more nuisance problems, and transmission rebuilt at 100,000. The Regal is powered properly - 3.8 cu. in., 205 HP, 32-33 0n Interstate, 20-22 around town. The Century underpowered Century (175 HP)gets 2-3 mpg less. The Regal is very quiet and comfortable, beats the Century in all categories."

"I purchased my vehicle a few days ago. It has been running well and is a very comfortable ride. Would really like getting as many miles out of the vehicle as I can. So far I have definitely enjoyed my "new" car. AS long as the transmission holds I'll be a happy camper."
