About Buick Electra

Buick Electra is a full-size luxury car manufactured and marketed by the American automobile manufacturer General Motors' upscale brand Buick from 1959 to 1990. The first Buick Electra was introduced in 1959 to replace the Buick Roadmaster and Buick Super. It was offered in varying body styles including coupe, convertible, sedan and station wagon. But after being produced for six generations through thirty years, Buick Electra was eventually replaced by the Buick Park Avenue for the 1991 model year.
The fifth-generation Buick Electra was produced from 1977 to 1984 as a downsized C-body car. It came with base 225 and Limited trim levels as well as a top-line Park Avenue option package. Sedan and coupe are its main body styles. During this generation, Buick Electra got several engine options such as 4.1 L V6, 5.0 L, 5.7 L and 6.6 L V8 engines and engines sent power through either a 3-speed or a 4-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels. The final generation started in 1985 with a redesigned front-drive Electra but sales began in April 1984. Trim levels including 300/380/430 (based on engine displacement), Park Avenue, performance-oriented T-Type, and Limited were available. Buick Electra was powered by a 3.0 L V6 engine rated at 110 horsepower and 145 lb-ft of torque, 3.8 L and 4.3 L V6 engines. But all engines were mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Some even said that it is not a big deal but just causes some vibration while driving, though vibration does cause discomfort but still not a big deal.
