Launched as a follow up to the earlier Regal model, the Buick Somerset range only lasted a few short years before production was halted. Despite being quite a small vehicle, the interior was spacious and one of the more appealing features of the car. The Somerset was released as a two-door coupe with a 2.5 liter or 3 liter V6 engine. Transmission consisted of three gears in automatic or five gears in the manual version. Our detailed Buick Somerset repair manual offers practical advice on routine maintenance and full-scale servicing in print or digital formats.
