About

The Buick Somerset was a two-door coupe that had a relatively short three-year lifespan. It was launched in 1985 as the Buick Somerset Regal but the name was abbreviated to Somerset in 1986. It was a sister car to the Buick Skylark and Pontiac Grand Am. Under the hood it had either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine or a 3.0-liter V6. Four-cylinder cars had a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, with a three-speed automatic transmission on the options list. The V6 versions had the three-speed auto as standard. The Somerset was not a big seller, and was not helped by reliability issues. The Somerset name was killed off in 1988, with the car being moved under the Buick Skylark naming umbrella. Haynes has an extensive range of Buick repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Buick Somerset repair manual will be able to help you service or repair your car with care.
