Default GM V6 3.6L DOHC

Seems like the 3.6L DOHC V6 is going to be installed in alot of GM cars/SUVs. I think 3800 series will be phased out soon, even from Buick. This seems to be a decent engine. Anyone have one of the cars and care to comment?

I never understood the multi-brand concept. If GM is using the same engine/chassis, why not just make one GOOD QUALITY car instead of three cheap variants. I mean, mass produce one good car will lower the overall cost of manufacturing. Instead of three slightly different bumpers, they can just purchase one and get good price for it, right?!

3800 is dead. This is the last year, or was the last year IIRC.

3.6 VVT looks pretty cool, if it'* seamless and effective like the VVT in our Solstice, i'll love it.

I think the 3800 series is the worst engine to ever be used, I have a 3800 series 3.8l v6 and have maintained it well. But it always seems like something is always going wrong with it. I'm thinking about doing an engine swap on mine along with the tranny

Normally we don't dig up old posts(especially when they are five years old) unless you are asking the original poster a question. Some people haven't been on here in years.

Instead, start your own thread with a link back to this one for reference.
