"This was my first car, and i havent had any problems. Its faster than most everyday car, its got a great amount of room, and is not a "trouble" magnet. parts are fairly cheap, and it sits higher off the ground than other car, and i havent bottomed out pulling in somewhere, were my friends do."
"I have had this vehicle for 3 years now and I have quite enjoyed it, except for some problems, the Speed sensor for the traction control and ABS went out on it, and it did love going thru the batteries. but we got the battery issue fixed, now the starter needs replaced. I also don't care for the gas milage, for some reason my gas milage is at 16 miles a gallon but I am sure with some more TLC(bought used) I am sure I can get it up where it should be.
other then that stuff It is a great car and I really love it!"
"This car has been a great car and has surpassed all my expectations. I have put about 40,000 miles on this vehicle with no major problems and 1 minor. It is a very comfortable car to take on long road trips or just driving around town. Any time I've had a rental car I can't wait to get back into my regal since it is so much more comfortable. The fuel economy is very good for a larger car. My city range is between 20-24 and on the highway I've gotten as high at 36. I recently started putting Lucus fuel injection cleaner in every couple tanks and has made a noticeable improvement in the gas mileage. When I do replace this vehicle it will be with another Buick, but probable not any time soon since I'm pretty sure I can get up to 250,000 miles on this one pretty easily."
"I've owned my Regal for 9 years. I absolutely love it. I'm much younger than the typical Buick owner and all my friends, who made fun of it being a geiser mobile, ultimately admit they love it too. It has been reliable and safe as I have been rear-ended three times, no injuries to me. The car is stable, solid and performs great in all weather conditions. Buick is built to last. I'm going for 250K and expect I'll get it!"
"This care has been great. Bought it at a used junker lot for $2500. The vehicle itself had a little over 100,000 miles on it. Working with cars, I've seen the 3.8 engines come through with 300,000 miles on them and there drivers are still driving them strong. Didn't think twice about buy this car and was not disappointed. Yes, the cup holders are a problem, but other than that, the interior looks great. I got the LS model with the leather and premium sound."
"I bought this car in 2001 with 14,000 miles on it (191,500 now!). Drive 1.5 miles on a rough gravel road to get to the highway and have never had dust or noise problems. This car owes me nothing...has held up very well and gets great gas milage (avg 27-28) even when I am doing 75-80mph on the highway. The only drawback is my husband is a large framed guy and getting in and out of the car is not easy. I feel for the miles on the car, the repairs are due to use...wheel bearings, shocks, etc. When I merge into traffic, the car has the guts to get the job done. Have kept it as there is no reason to make a change."
"The GS Regal truly says business in traffic. Has truly impressive on ramp merging capabilities.
The auto climate is a so so fair weather friend. And the leather seats are only so so. The interior does need to be pampered. But if maintained correctly looks classy.
Paint, fit and, finish are all top notch outside of the vehicle.
Bought the car with 78k and drove it to 116k in less than ninety days.
Car seems to handle high way miles like a champ.
Not so fuel efficient but weigh the performance and mileage and it's more then acceptable.
A calm driver will averave: 21 City
Driven Hard : 17.5 City
"We bought this car with 3 miles on it. It now has 99863 miles. I have never broke down on the road with it. It looked brand new until 1 1/2 years ago. I can't believe they're no longer making them. If they made another, I would have bought it. The reason they weren't selling was the owners were so happy, they kept them for years."
"One of the best cars I have owned in 40 years. Excellent ride, handling and plenty of get up and go from a standing stop or on the road. Mechanical problems have been minor. City mileage varies from 14 to 17 mpg. Highway mileage is 27 to 30 depending on the terrain."
"I bought this car used and have been pleasantly surprised in almost every aspect. It has great power and above average gas mileage for a car of it's size. I enjoy being able to put my foot down and move ahead of the pack. The ride is smooth and plush, and it makes commuting over an hour a day much more bearable. My only qualm would be the quality of the interior. While the leather seats are nice, the switchgear and general fit and finish leave something to be desired. LOTS of squeaks and rattles. Overall a nice vehicle."
