The Buick Reatta Was a 1980s High-Tech Marvel

The Buick Reatta was a marvel of technology, and a tremendously interesting and unusual car. Today I’m reviewing the Buick Reatta, and I’m going to show you all the quirks and features of this interesting coupe. I’m also going to drive the Reatta and show you what it’s like on the road.

    Behold — the glorious touchscreen! This is one of my favorite recent videos. Enjoy!

    That touch screen reminds me of the Pip Boy from Fallout 😁

    Styling is more like a 7 – it was styled by two different teams, one did the front, the other did the back, which is why it doesn't really flow together well. But the idea was for it to have an Italian look – and unlike Doug, I think it actually looks better now since it's not generic. One thing that is odd is pricing, I recall these being fairly expensive, which is why they didn't sell. If these are selling used in only that $10-12k range, I might try to buy one, at least one with a CRT.

    I laughed out loud when you opened the hood. I had a 1989 Olds 88 that had that exact engine in it. She also had that same bright/dim feature on the visor mirrors.

    I miss that car so much. 🥺

    This anti-corvette has a better infotainment system than a modern McLaren. Other manufacturers should be taking notes

    Quirky that above the unleaded fuel only there’s diesel fuel only. Maybe that was an option to have the old diesel they used in other models.

    My dad had 2 of these! I couldn't, at 5 years old, have possibly appreciated how cool the guy was.

    It kind of looks like Buick’s attempt at a fiero.

    that touch screen looks like it's from the first Alien movie lol, I bet those touch screens went bad in 5 years or less…. from what I see online overhauling the touch screen costs $500 $75 core charge..

    Kudos to Doug to fine one of these. I've been curious about these since they came out and never had a chance to get in one. Thanks.

    Awesome 80's touchscreen info display. But I can't help to overlook the misspelling of gages (sic).

    come on Doug, do us all a favour and review a 240, 740 or 940 Volvo and let it make # 1 on your list. It's like an anti-Glock guy refusing to do a Glock review because he knows it's gonna top the list.

    It's one of Buick's first and last
    2 seater sports coupe and roadster.

    If only it came in the form of or the basis of the Pontiac Solstice/Saturn Sky roadster

    @6:50 well, that's the Fiat's "speed beep" before it was called a speed beep 😉

    What a seriously ugly car. It's as if someone thought "you know what? A Lincoln towncar would make a great coupe!"

    Certain IBM crt monitors had touchscreens in them around the early 90s. LGR has a great video on one.

    Hey find a really good condition Audi B5S4 and give that a review! Better yet find a B5S4 avant stage 3 and give that a drive.

    I own a red 1989 reatta and it is not your grandfather's Buick, but yet a youthful romantic coupe that handles well and turns more heads than a Corvette of the same year, all the features are the birthplace of a lot of the modern features that we now take for granted as well as a 3.8 liter engine that you can get parts for easily today, the sporty design, power and handling is amazing as well as having the sleek veneer of the 1980s. The Doug score was highly unfair to the car.

    I'm not a car guy, but every so often I get this channel on my YouTube reconmendations and end up binge watching all of the 1970s-2000 cars.

    Now that's fascinating.

    A 1980s high tech marvel? That means you had to take it to the Buick dealer to get it fixed. There the technician who specializes in computerized fuel injection and ignition systems can hook it up to his computer and this will connect him to the GM engineers in Michigan. Can they fix it ? Maybe ,maybe not.

    The "Twilight Sentinel" was good when it worked, however after twilight you would be in darkness and then it would turn off your lights if it were malfunctioning.

    The calendar circuit could check and adjust itself until new years 1999 to 2000 after that the year would be 1900.

    My parents bought two to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.
    Drove them daily for over twenty years.
    They both were driven on cross country road trips and once went from Wisconsin to Alaska.
    Both were very reliable and were driven in excess of 250k.
    Their German Shepherd rode behind the seats.

    That touch screen this is impressive for 1980s programming. They must have spent a lot of money developing that. That would have been a big deal.
