The interior is nice and the seats are really comfortable. Smooth rides.

The Buick is not good with going up hills because of its weight. It goes really fast down hills so you have to use your brakes almost constantly down the hill, 3rd gearing and 2nd gearing helps but not a lot at all. Stereo is easy to blow so down put the volume up too high or you'll blow your speaker.

Dependable, comfortable, high quality.

I love my Buick. It is incredibly dependable, roomy enough for my family, and very high quality. It is lasted through the past couple decades in wonderful condition. The last year or so it is had a few problems that need fixing but nothing serious. It is still my favorite car I have owned.

It's pretty good automatic car overall but it is really long type of car so you really need to know how to park and back out and make turns properly. I wouldn't recommend this car for first time drivers. The lights turn on automatically in the evening. Even though the car is pretty spacious being how long it is I would recommend the car for people with children in carseats.

I don't like that's it is so long. It makes it harder to park and back out of parking lots. I don't like that it doesn't have metal hooks inside the back seat to hook up car seats. I also don't care for the cupholders. Otherwise the car has lasted a long time and still runs well.

Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
00V346
Summary:
Certain passenger vehicles fail to comply with requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 104, "Windshield Wiping and Washing Systems." These vehicles have a wiper system microprocessor that is susceptible to voltage transients, which can cause a "latch-up" condition in the system controller. If microprocessor "latch-up" occurs, the customer will not be able to operate the system in both the low-speed and high-speed modes required by the standard.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor cover, which contains the microprocessor. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during December 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300.
