My father's generation used to
say, "People with money buy Cadilacs,
but SMART people with money buy
Buicks!" I would update this for my
generation to say, "People with money
buy BMW's (or Lexus or Infiniti), but
SMART people with money buy the Buick
Regal." I have owned several new BMW's
over the years and don't get me wrong,
the Regal GS can't match them in the
handling department, but overall my
Regal is much more car for the money
than any BMW I ever owned. These other
reviewers are preaching the truth. The
Buick Regal GS is one of the best
values and one of the best kept secrets
on the road.
The supercharged engine with
almost "muscle car" acceleration. The

features. The comfortable ride - you
can take this car for long rides and
still feel fresh. Low maintenance. At
37,000 virtually all that the car has
needed is oil changes.
Better handling. It's a powerful sedan
but it needs to exhibit less body roll
in the turns for me to call it a true
A touch better styling. Though I like
the style, for my taste the nose is a
little too long for the tail.
