Overpriced Trash by dissapointed in MT on 01/24/2004. Trim: 1997 Buick Regal LS, Owned 4 years.
Pros: This car was nice to begin with. It had nice color and comfy seats with some good options inside.
Cons: Just about everything else that is not in the pro's section. We had to replace the tires, brakes, fuel pump, battery three times, fix the alternator, the cassette player ate one of our tapes and couldn't get it out, the right passenger window broke, the battery died a fourth time and sent a short through the entire electrical system and fried the whole instrument cluster which they had to ship to buick to make a new one, yeah one expensive peice of trash!
Overall review: If you would like to overpay for a 'car' that will get you from point A to B while expecting problems, then this is the car for you. Oh, also dont forget that when you pay 17,000 for it and still have 6,000 to pay- you will only get 3,000 for a blue book quote.

Best in Class Power by Forest Gump from Dayton, OH on 07/25/2003. Trim: 1997 Buick Regal GS, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Value Priced Performance Sedan. Engine runs well with best in class power. Reliable engine, radio controls on steering wheel, heated seats.
Cons: Poor fit and finish. Minor things like window trim melting and steering wheel peeling to nuisance electrical problems with front turn signal and power seat and temperature control display.
Overall review: For the price, I think that you would have a hard time finding a better value in a performance sedan. Minor fit and finish problems, which bring down overral rating from 10, but very happy with it.

Bad,Bad,Bad Quality by Jodi on 02/13/2003. Trim: 1997 Buick Regal LS, Owned 6 years.
Pros: I like the way the Regal Looks. Thats IT!
Cons: What I dont like is having to put $2500 into a car that is 5yrs old with only 51,000 miles on it!!! General Motors needs to do some research and purchase/make better parts for the engine. My manifold has warped/melted??? Then the same part was put back on the car. I was charged $295.00 for that. Why should I have been liable for a part that General Motors decided to put on their car that is of poor quality!!! I had to have my steering gear replaced because it was leaking. Head gaskets replaced because they were leaking.
Overall review: I would never recommend this car!! We are in the market for a new car. We are getting rid of a 1992 Pontiac Grand AM. Believe me when I tell you it IS NOT going to be another General Motors car.
