    My wife's [ Mary Pat] 94 Buick Regal keeps stalling while going down the road....sometimes as much as 10 stalls on one trip from Lower Gwennyd PA to Holland PA.

    Her car was in O'Neill's Buick in Warminster, PA for a week, & they could not solve the situation. It was slso in Kar Klinic of Southampton , PA for 3 days & they found nothing while on their dianostic machine.

    This is a VERY dangerous car.
