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!
2012 Buick RegalTyler - Las Vegas, NV02/18/2015
Everything a German luxury sport sedan has to offer in an American nameplate. The feel of quality in the handling coupled with the power in the drivetrain far exceeds what u was expecting. Love the mix of sport and comfort in the interior especially how quiet the ride is, very little "road noise" it's funny to say this, but like the commercials say "that's a Buick". It's truly not the car my father drove.
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.
