Been So Good to Me!
Cons: cosmetic damage (my fault!)I bought this car used going into my sophomore year of college and five years, 80,000 miles later I have no complaints. Aside from the standard maintenance it has never asked anything from me. Runs well, has good pickup, and big enough to fit everything I need (people, snowboards, you name it). It's time to move on now, but I'll admit it's been tough to find a car with the functionality and adaptibility to stack up.
Third vehicle by GM with no problems
Cons: poor lighting in dash during the day.Very comfortable seats, no mechical problems, good gas mileage, roominess, excellent paint job, holds the road very well, nice styling.
Pros: power seats
Cons: computerizedwould think my car is very dependable
Cons: Front window pillarsGreat ride and looks great
The new class of world class/'
Pros: Overall design, especially the interior
Cons: More road noise than I expected.If you are looking at hi-end entry such as Lexus ES, Acura RL, etc., you should take the time to look at a Buick CSX. This vehicle will out class, out perform, and out please at a saving of $10,000 or more. GREAT JOB GM. A REAL WINNER. RCC, BALTIMORE
Pros: soft ride
Cons: engine lacks power , instrument panel. poor gas mileage
Advice: Do not purchase! check other makes.Not happy with fuel mileage 14 mpg city 20 mpg highway. Just about a cash for clunkers criteria. Asked service manager what mileage I should expect, his reply I have no idea.
Pros: Roominess and styling
Cons: Somewhat plain exterior
Advice: Find a low mileage unit with the options you want and buy it.This is a great car for the money.The 38OO engine gives very good fuel milage and has plenty of power.Also ride,handling,and a quiet interior are much appreciated. When you can buy a good domestic car like this Buick why would I buy an over priced and over rated import.
