We "car-shopped" for this vehicle.
Looked at and drove a variety of other
domestic and imported models. Had
never owned or even considered a Buick
previously. The imports were too small
and their rides too stiff. This car
has a better combination of power,
comfort, leg and trunk room and economy
(a consistent 29-31 mpg on the road)
than any other of many we test-drove.
Our decision has proved to be a good
one. It handles well,if not sportily.
Only negative: wind noise at the
driver's position moderately annoying
at highway speeds.
Power, comfort, ride, economy (imagine,
we used to brag about 30 mpg on a Bug!)
Eliminate wind noise at driver's side
Add pockets on the front doors.
