Description:

1990 Buick Reatta

Fully equipped with a/c, power windows, power door locks, etc. Has 142,000 miles on the car.

This car was a daily driver for me but I very rarely have driven it over the past few years. I keep it mostly in the garage. I have had it since 2010. Not a show car by any means but still looks nice and drives nice. No rust. Not junk. I just spent $550.00 to repair the a/c so it blows cold. Over the years, I had the brakes replaced, harmonic balancer and serpentine belt replaced, and the passenger-side window motor replaced. New shocks and struts all around were installed at one point. Other work has been done on an as needed basis in keeping the car in overall good condition. New tires purchased at 129,000 miles so they are still in good condition with plenty of life left. Last year, I installed a new Die Hard battery.

Car is red with camel-colored leather interior. This car has the same interior as a Buick Riviera except it is a two-seater coupe.

Interior is in relatively good condition, not perfect but in relatively good presentable shape. Could use a carpet cleaning or new carpet depending on how picky you are. Seats are showing some age and have some flaws (cracks in the leather) but have no major rips. For the age of the car, both the interior and exterior look relatively good. Remember, it is a 26 year old car with 142,000 miles on it and the overall condition it is in is better than most cars with less miles. There are no cracks in the dash and all the glass is good. Paint is original with small scratches here and there but shines and shows pretty good.

This would be a good and cool car to use as a daily driver as is or fix up to to perfection. Everything works on the car. The 3800 motor is the most trouble-free motor GM has ever put out.

Known issues: Sometimes the driver's side headlight will not pop up so it has to be raised manually. I have new headlight motors in a box and since I rarely ever drive at night, I never installed them. Also, the digital dash goes off at odd times. It will go off for a few minutes or an hour and then just automatically come back on. Then, it will stay on for months at a time without going off again. This has been going on in the six years I have owned the car and presents no problem for me. Has one tiny very dent (see picture with finger) on the top of the quarter panel by the trunk where we dropped something on it. Front of car has the regular paint chips from road rash, rocks hitting it. Other than that, paint looks really good and shiny with normal wear.

The car has no mechanical issues to my knowledge and I have driven it on several road trips of 200 plus miles with no issues. Oil changed every 3000 miles. License and inspection are up to date. I have a clear/clean Texas title in my name. Bottom line - car is ready to go and can be driven daily with no big major repairs.

I realize my description about the car is rather lengthy but I like to be honest about what I am selling so that there are no surprises for the buyer. If I have failed to mention something, then it is because it hasn't come to mind while I was writing this posting. If you like these cars or you are a Reatta lover like me, come and get it. You won't be disappointed based on the mileage and the price I am asking. This is not a new car. This is a cash car that is well worth the money. It'll surely get you from Point A to Point B and look pretty good doing it.Reserve price is reasonably set. Thank you!

The reserve is reasonable. My name is Bo and I can be reached at 832/236-5986.
