problem #6

Regal 6-cyl

  • 137,000 miles
2000 Regal Buick with low mileage didn't pass nh state inspection because of code P0440 evaporation emission control system. When looking at GM recall there were 248 other 2000 Buick recalls with the same issue reported to General Motors.this code has to do with the fuel system, gas lines and storage tank and can be very dangerous and catch the car on fire.I did call GM and filed a claim but they really don't care.also there is a steering/suspension steering linkage free play. When doing research on this there was a recall (76128) and 979 people also reported this issue.

problem #5

Apr 132004

Regal 6-cyl

  • 35,000 miles
While driving 20 mph the steering failed. As a result, the vehicle crashed into a snow bank. The consumer experienced two crashes due to the brakes and the steering locking. The consumer had taken the vehicle to the dealer on three occasions for the steering problem but the locking continued. The dash lights would come on (gas gauge and oil light), the vehicle pulled to the right and the trunk would fly open while the vehicle was in motion.
