This car is great! It has a lot of power! Never broken down. I drive a full car almost everyday and never have any issues with room or storage. It has leather seats and clean easily. Also the butt warmers take less then 3 minutes to get hot. One thing badly placed is the cup holders. When I have my drink in it I can't get to the shifter without knocking it over. I love the car. I would not trade it if I was got a brand new car! I got it from my grandmother when she stopped driving and had 28,000 in 2015. I hope to keep the car for a long time and put lots of miles on it! I now have 41,579 and still runs like new! I have a heavy foot and it does not disappoint me. Great car overall and well built. Lastly the navy blue color looks fantastic and still looks well! Thanks Buick for such a well made car!

Never was a GM fan but heard others brag about the 3.8 motor so much thought that I would give it a shot. Let just say this car put the nails in the coffin as far as having GM vehicles in my household. Engine stalled out while going down highway @ 75 mph and had to manual steer the vehicle to the shoulder during heavy traffic was a scare to say the least. After some research, apparently it is a common problem with the 3.8 motor!? I don't know how people are okay with a vehicle can just stall out in any giving time and feel safe having their love ones driving it. I was glad it was me driving it when it stalled out and not my pregnant wife. Got it "fixed" and few days later problem reoccurred.

I bought this car because we already had a 1996 gran sport that is a dream to drive especially for long trips, so i was kinda curious as to the new version. It is just right for power and comfort but there has been lots of added or improved features by the competition so it is feeling its age. Joseph Abboud spec has a sports set up I think, and it does not come close to the gran sport for ride comfort.Albeit a great family hauler.

I have had a 03 Regal for 6 years. I got it used with 13,000 miles. It now has 95,000 miles. The only reason I am getting rid of it is to get a SUV that will hold 3 car seats.

I love my Regal with two exceptions. Recently discovered that the $250.00 16" Chrome over Aluminum Wheels have corroded leading to separation between the Chrome and the Aluminum. This resulted in my new Michelin tires not sealing to the rim. In addition the headlight dimmer switch, buried in the stalk on the steering wheel failed. Discovered that there is no relay, so failure is expected. Most other cars in the world use a replaceable relay for high current use. Very bad design!

I bought this car about 8 months ago, and it had 49k miles on it. Now it's got 61k, with no problems. Well, no problems other than the window regulator that I replaced. But that was cheap and easy. Kinda like my first wife. I love this car. The seats are quite possibly the most comfortable that I've ever sat upon. Leather interior is very nice looking and very sturdy. The mileage for this powerful 3.8L V6 is amazing. I drive mostly on the highway, and I've been getting 29.1 mpg. My wife's 07 Altima 2.5L 4cyl gets the same. I'd rather drive my 03 Regal than the 07 Altima (and it's loaded!). I'd buy it again!

I have owned two other Buick Regals, a 2001 and 1999 which was recently totaled. Both were good cars. I got over 300k on the 2001 before it got too expensive to keep up. This newly acquired 2003 model is just like new! The first week I had the car I drove to Charleston, SC from Anderson, SC. I got outstanding gas mileage. I had 2 other passengers plus luggage so we were not running on little weight here. Also had the air on all the time. I couldn't believe it! We got 35 mpg! Best ever in a Regal LS. The other Buick's I'd owned got around 27 mpg which was doing OK I thought. I was just blown away with the nice ride this 2003 model has. According to CR this model is the best.

Purchased 1 1/2 ago with 68 K miles. Solid (hey, it's a Buick). Quiet. Great ride. Great acceleration. 24 mpg city, 31.8 hwy when car had over 80 K miles. Outstanding for the 3800 engine. Back passenger window has a short. Has to replace the corroded power steering line for about $130.

I liked the Regals when I was a kid and saw the mid-80s models and thought they were great then, and still do. I finally got my hands on this one, and though I've only owned it for a few hundred miles, I'm already in love. When you kick it, it moves. The ride is comfortable, but you can feel the road and remember that you are, in fact, driving. Buick has the greatest seats ever put into any car, bar none. I'm a happy camper.

The series II 3800 V6 engine has plenty of underlying power when you need it. Road noise is nonexistent. Suspension is sure and straight. Good overall cabin visibility. Controls are easily accessible. Night turning lights are great for seeing in the dark.

I drove a Ford F150 for 10 years. Test drove several autos. Kept going back to this beautiful car. I like the plain look. Not a lot of extraneous gadgets and gizmos. Simply elegant; beautiful. The front end picks up and the car literally RUNS. I try not to be smug as a bug! Oh, two speeding tickets = Buick Regal is much faster than Ford F150!

My fully loaded Regal GS Aboud compares quite favorably with enrty level BMW, Infiniti, Caddy, Lexus, and Toyota. I am very impressed with the aspirated engine and the tight handling. It compares well to my Mercedes in craftsmanship as well. Seating comfort is very good and the leather heated/adjustable seats are above average. The cabin quiet is greatly appreciated and the Monsoon stereo system is pleasing indeed. The year end pricing of this vehicle made the difference for me. The trunk could be shorter giving a bit more rear leg room to the passengers and the dash is too reflective on bright days.

I have never owned a car that performs like my Regal GS. My Regal has 92,000 miles and runs beautifully. People to this day cannot believe that I drive a 1998 model because it looks so new. I have had the oil changed faithfully every 2 to 3 thousand miles. I make sure that every option is in good working order. I keep the car in mint condition because I love the car. It is beautiful, comfortable, reliable, and has every option available. The supercharger makes a huge difference in the engine performance which produces 240hp (the most powerful engine in its class). I love the car!

A fun car to drive. Lots of power and handling is very good. First car I've had that had absolutely no defects from the time I acquired it four months ago. With the Joseph Abood decor it could become a collector's item. From the outside it may be nondescript but it doesn't take a back seat to any six cylinder when it comes to power.

The car had a few minor defects upon taking delivery, mostly cosmetic. It has been 100% reliable, has had absolutely no mechanical or electrical failures, and has a remarkably smooth ride while at the same time offering plenty of performance for being a fairly heavy car. The 3.8L V6 offers plenty of power to maneuver in traffic even at high speeds. I replaced a 1997 BMW 528i with this car, and in find the acceleration to be quite comparable. Contemporary styling of 1997+ Regals also make it attractive for younger buyers. I highly recommend this car as a refined alternative to the Mercury Sable or Cadillac CTS.

Previous 2000 Intrigue owner, 3.5l engine--got "tricked" into test driving Regal LS w/ Leather and touring suspension package. Easily the equivalent of, if not better than the Intrigue in every aspect. I personally prefer the 3.8l engine over the DOHC 3.5l, because of vastly increased lower end torque. Tranny shifts a lot less in urban driving situations--i.e, accelerating off a ramp from 35-40 mph to 55-60 mph in a short acceleration lane. Plenty of oomph passing going from ca. 55 up to 75 to pass on two- lane roads. Fit and finish (of leather interior) absolutely flawless, as is exterior finish.

I received a good deal on this car, and have been pleased with lively performance, good reliability at the end of 3 months of leasing (built in a modern plant in Ontario), and an all- around good drive. I feel well cared for in this car that has lots of features, and despite some initial skepticism, the On-Star system is useful. I have received superior dealership support.

This is a dated car and doesn't compare well with the competition. Who is Earl Hartley, and who cares? However, "GM points," 0% financing and generous dealer discount ultimately made the Regal more attractive. Reliability was another consideration. In four years of driving a '99, I had no problems whatsoever. Only complaint was cheap Goodyear tires which lasted about 20k miles.

Bought this with 15K, traded Accord LX V6. This car needed tires badly, the 215.70.15 badly limit handling, wail like banshees. I replaced with Yoko Avid 235.60.15. Torque is great, far superior to Honda 3L, such instant grunt is appreciated. Transmission well mated to the excellent 3.8 torquemeister. #2 need is shocks, a Koni option would be nice. This car is handsome but invisible, std. ABS with 4wdisc excellent. Seats could be firmer, would like a 20 gal tank. Only problem has been with aftermarket struts.

I now have about 19,000 miles on the car and it has never been back to the dealer. On level highway driving, I've been able to achieve 32 mpg. The car is comfortable, quiet and fun to drive.

I Luv my GS

Very pleased with the dealership. The Regal is a very sporty family car. Lots of passenger room but the trunk is a little small.

Nice Car

Traded in a Honda Accord for this Regal. I'm impressed by its comfort, convenience features and solid feel.The 3800 engine is a pleasure to drive, especially on the highway. The styling is clean and refined.
