Buick Reliability Ratings

Annual maintenance costs are only one factor that RepairPal takes into consideration when determining an answer to the question “how long do Buicks last?” They also look at the number of times per year a driver has to come in for unscheduled maintenance, and the probability that said maintenance will require major or severe repairs.

Buick scores an overall reliability rating of 3.5 / 5, which puts it above average across all car brands. Along with a lower-than-average annual repair cost of $608, RepairPal found that the average Buick has to come in for unscheduled maintenance just 0.3 times a year, with a 13% chance that those repairs will be severe. Here are the reliability ratings for some of the top Buick vehicles:

  • Buick Encore: 4 / 5
  • Buick Verano: 4 / 5
  • Buick Regal: 4 / 5
  • Buick LaCrosse: 4 / 5
