problem #1

Dec 162005

Regal 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,000 miles
I purchased a 2000 Buick Regal gse 8/18/00 which has a supercharged engine. The car has been a great car until 12/16/2005. After I had parked the car and gone into the doctor's office, my car caught fire and was destroyed. The car was totaled and the insurance adjuster told me it was the 3rd burned Buick Regal supercharged engine that he'd seen this year alone. After investigation, it appears the gasket in the fuel injection system leaked, fuel dropped onto the manifold system, a fire started and the car was destroyed (along with a good bit of damage to the Volvo parked next to mine). It would appear that the supercharged engine gaskets are a problem and fortunately for me, the car was the only loss....it could have been so much more. I do not know if others have lost anything beyond their cars but I believe it should be investigated.
