I have a 2002 Regal GS with 80k on it. When I noticed the oil leak, I called Buick after hearing about the recall in Canada and they told me it was my responsibility to have the car repaired. I was also advised to take it in to the dealership to have them confirm the problem. I did and they confirmed the leaking intake manifold gasket. However, I paid over $800 to have my car repaired and it still leaks. We have two of these GS' in my family and both are doing the same thing. The problem is with defective valve covers. They are plastic and the one on the front tends to melt and bend upward causing the oil to leak onto the manifold. This is my third regal and my second supercharged one and I have had more problems with this one than my other two combined. Two weeks after I got mine repaired, I got a safety notice advising of the leak. It's now parked and covered until I get it repaired. If anyone has one of these, have someone double check the front valve cover and I will almost be willing to bet it's warped due to heat.
