I drove a Saturn in the mid 90's. Thought it was a good car.

Well, I think he's the only person under the age of 70 who does, and only because he gets one for free.

Buick traditionally has much better reliability & quality than either of those two, their 3.8 V6 can hardly be any better.

Other than that, old people across America just love'em...without them, Buick might not have made it.

Well then they will die off eventually too.

Nobody under 40 drives a Buick or will ever hold any loyalty to that brand.

Agreed, but for now they still do pretty good.

I've always thought that if GM really wanted to get 'lean & mean' they would pare down to Chevy & Cadillac, thats it.

The engines are interchangeable under the GM umbrella.

Thats true, other GM divisions have or have had the 3.8, but according to the mechanics where i work, the Buick engineers version is a step above.

Yeah, Buick's styling leaves much to be desired these days.

That said, they really are excellent cars on the main. I dont know how many moms & dads have brought their 16 year old in for their first car where i work, needing something 'cheap but reliable', but when i try to do them a big favor by showing them a really nice little Buick for the right money, the kid inevitably shoots it down in flames & mom or dad (always) cave-in like pussies.

Yeah, go ahead on that piece of crap Grand Am that might split in half the moment you go over the curb, atleast it looks 'sporty' lol.

Spoiled ass kids these days, my first car was a 76 Datsun that before i had it, was bright orange, but now faded to the color of sherbet...and i was damned glad to get it.
