Have only had normal wear and tear. Comfy to ride. In this car does a good job for almost any job you have to do. The seats keep your buns warm when its cold, and the air works to keep you cool in the summer you can ride five adult people with ease. Has a lot of little storage spots, the seats fold down for a flat surface in back seat, also has a opening from the trunk to the back seat for anything to long. The steering wheel moves up and down so you can drive comfortable.

The most important thing people should know about my car is that it's safe and will get us from point a to point b without safety or mechanical issues.

I love that our 2002 Buick Regal has high safety ratings because I have two children under 17 months old. I also appreciate the high level of visibility. Many newer models I've driven have smaller windows and larger sections between windows. Having a moonroof is fun; I'd never had one before. I wish this car got better gas mileage for fuel savings.

It is getting on in miles, yet does not seem like it will die on the road.

Overall it is an okay automobile. It had a couple of recalls that needed to be dealt with by the dealership. Performance has been okay, it is comfortable and gets up to speed in a functional manner. Ac lasted about 10 years. It is old and getting on in miles but does not feel like it will die on the side of the road.

Engine And Engine Cooling Oct 26, 2015
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 26, 2015
NHTSA Campaign:
15V701000
Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 1998-1999 Chevrolet Lumina and Oldsmobile Intrigue, 1997-2004 Buick Regal and Pontiac Grand Prix, 2000-2004 Chevrolet Impala, and 1998-2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo vehicles. The affected vehicles were previously repaired under recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, and 15V-201 to address the possibility that engine oil may drip onto the hot exhaust manifold.
Consequence:
Engine oil that drips onto the hot surface of the exhaust manifold may result in a fire.
Remedy:
The remedy applied under recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, and 15V-201 did not adequately remove the safety risk. GM is finalizing an improved remedy. Vehicles that are covered by recalls 08V-118, 09V-116, or 15V-201 that have not yet received the original remedy will instead receive the improved remedy under the original recall number, once the improved remedy has been finalized. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Oldsmobile customer service at 1-800-442-6537 and Pontiac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 15757. Note: Until the improved remedy has been applied, owners are advised to park their vehicle outside since the fire risk exists even when the vehicle is unattended.
