  • My 2001 Buick Regal has 78,000 miles on it. Over the past month (Sept-Oct) the car has skidded, as if on ice, when I engage the brakes. What would cause that to happen?

    The 2001 Buick Regal is a sporty version of the Century, with which it shares a platform. Its grille and front end are the major stylistic distinctions from the Century. In 2001, the Regal adds standard OnStar to its performance-oriented GS trim. Also added is a special Olympic appearance package option, designed by Joseph Abboud in honor of Buick's U.S. team sponsorship. It sports the U.S. Olympic logo and a two-tone exterior and comes with a sunroof and an 8-speaker sound system. When added to the base LS, it adds the Gran Touring suspension.

    Two versions of the same engine can be had with the 2001 Buick Regal. The base LS has a 195-hp, 3.8 V6, while the GS is powered by a supercharged version of this engine that hits 240-hp. Both come only with a 4-speed auto tran, and the one in the GS is more heavy duty. ABS, dual front airbags, and traction control are standard across the line, but the sportier GS adds side airbags, a stiffer suspension, larger 16-inch wheels, and replaces chrome moldings with body-colored ones. The 2001 Regal is a mid-size sedan that's practical for families, with it's split-folding rear seat, but also fun for parents who leave their kids at home for a night out. The LS is nicely equipped with full power features and cruise control, and stepping up to the GS adds leather seats, a CD player, heated mirrors, and dual-zone climate control.
