After four months of ownership, I still love this car. I was looking for a daily commuter car that's fun to drive, yet won't have horrible gas mileage. The little turbo engine is surprisingly quick, plus it has a manual transmission (the real kind with three pedals!). The factory suspension setting better than most sedans, but in the "GS" mode, handling is fantastic. I plan to do some auto-cross racing in the spring.
I usually don't haul kids, but I can comfortably fit my three kids in the back seat (ages 10, 8, 5) when needed. However, I doubt there would be room for three kids if one was in a car seat.
A winner all the way around!
2013 Buick RegalKatherine Parramore - SOUTH RIDING, VA02/03/2016
It's superb - classy European styling (think it's built on the Opel chassis) smooth firm ride, handles well -- turbo makes for that "there when you need it" oopmh. Nice to see Buick make good cars again. Was a steal with only 13k on it. MPG is higher than what they tell you and on a turbo it's usually lower. One thing I really appreciate is the "non busy" steering wheel -- some of them have so many shiny buttons they rattle your brain. The whole look and feel of the cabin is soothing. Happy Happy Happy with this purchase!
It's overall a nice car. However, you make the best of what you have when you've made a commitment...that said, do your research before purchasing this vehicle. To me it's loud compared to my very old Honda. You will hear various systems working while you drive the car which personally makes me crazy! The car has had 2 dealer services since purchase not even 90 days in. Exhaust clips and serpentine belt and tensioner (belt screeches when using a/c). I do enjoy the car but as soon as I can I will be going back to Honda or Toyota. Good Luck!
Do frigid temperatures and harsh weather leave you cold on the idea of braving the elements in your car? When you’re piloting a vehicle that’s up to the task, wintertime driving isn’t so much of a challenge. Instead, it can be fun!
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
Henry Ford once famously told customers that his Model T came in any color they wanted, so long as that color was black. That was over 100 years ago. Today, the vehicles available to us come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, with a profusion of available options and features. Whether you're shopping for a quality used vehicle, or you want to take the plunge with a new car, 2017 is a great time to see what's available.
