My Buick is a very durable vehicle. The engine is the best engine out there.

My vehicle has been very reliable but it seems like its getting tired. One of the problems I have had with it originally they said it was the sensor on the transmission. The same day it still didn't get fixed after spending $500. I took it back and then they said it was another part but it would take $750. 00 to fix this problem.

2003 Buick regal ls. It is a great used car for $300.

Transmission slips, good gas mileage, old and used. Probably would have loved if I bought it new. It is been a good car, considering I bought it for only three hundred dollars. Motor mount loose and car shakes a lot! The headliner is falling, but it is had a lot of wear and tear.

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.
