2011 Buick Regal Sedan CXL 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

2 Days into the 2011 Buick Regal CXL with sunroof and I absolutely love the car. Picked up the black on black model and it's been a head turner. I've already had 2 strangers compliment the car and were shocked to find out it was a Buick. It's not the quickest car ever made (by far), but for an around the town type of car mixed in with a few road trips it's very solid. It's more than made up though with the solid feel of the car. I guess American companies just have to have their cars designed and built in Germany to put out a winner.

2011 Buick Regal Sedan CXL 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I traded my 2008 Pontiac G8 GT (Lease) for the 2011 Buick Regal (2 weeks ago), big change in power (8 cylinders) to (4 cylinders) but, how often did I really use it. The BIG win is the car's quiet interior great sound system and gadgets galore Navigation, voice recognition, On Star, Hard Drive (the best--- you can record only the songs you like), and Bluetooth. Each day I find a new toy to play with, I expect to enjoy this car for the next 24 months. By the way with gas at $3(plus) the mileage and cash savings will be a nice change.


Best Features

Sound systems and gadgets.


Worst Features

More power (I am not complaining)

2011 Buick Regal Sedan CXL 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

I have a 11 CXL Regal replaced my 08 Buick Lacrosse that was the worst car I have ever owned (and there has been many). So far like the Regal but not real happy with the gas mileage 18 would think with a 4 cyl it would get a lot better around town. The acceleration is slower then with a 6 cyl takes getting used too. Not really good in the snow especially in VT this year. Dash board lights reflect on windshield at night also. The on star phone still does not work correctly - tell it one number and it repeats something totally different they really need to work on that. Compared the Honda accord and the Toyota Corolla to the Regal. All about the same size just priced more.


Best Features

Like the design of the car in side and out. Sport look.


Worst Features

Have a trunk release inside the car, adjust the dash instrument panel so it does not reflect on the windshield at night, rise the seat belt latchs so they are not so low to get to to click. Improve the gas mileage for a 4 cyl (18) average around town so far.

2011 Buick Regal Sedan CXL 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 6A)


Review

This is the 1st American sedan I have owned. I have had 3 Accords and 2 Camrys since college between me and my wife. Most recent was 08 Accord. Lease just up so i returned it and got the Regal. Really liked the looks and the incentives being offered were hard to turn down, considering it is my tax dollars at work! Car drives and handles very well. Finish and build quality is excellent. Features far, far exceed my 08 LX-P Accord and I am paying $50 less per month. Handling beats that car also. Far quieter and smoother as well. Yes the car is slightly underpowered but no more so than the 4 cylinder Accords. Reviewers are making way more out of that. Great car so far.


Best Features

Leather seats, heated seats, heated mirrors, dual climate, handling, QUIET, etc and so on for less than a much lesser equipped Honda or Toyota. Great Looks also. Excellent build quality. Car feels strong and stout.


Worst Features

Instruments take a while to get used to, but like any car once you do it is fine. I slightly more powerful engine would be nice but the same can be said for every Sedan in the class using a 4 cylinder.

Review

Just picked up a Buick Regal CXL base, after turning in a solid GM defunct Saturn Aura. Looking for a mid priced car <30k this car beats them all. Interior is fabulous with standard features like heat seats, dual climate, leather, heated mirrors, temp,compass,XM, power seats,lumbar. Exterior standard 18" alloy wheels, fog lights. Car has solid acceleration for commute, quiet interior, no road noise, rides on rails feel, spoiler. Interior sold me in cashmere very luxurious, exterior style does'nt blow me away but elegant. Fit and finish top notch, solid feel with bank vault doors. TG GM still around not many japanese or korean compare to this.


Best Features

Heated seats, leather, foglights, XM,Onstar, 18" wheels.


Worst Features

Need strap in trunk for closing similar to Aura. More exterior color selections. Dash backlights during day are too dim need to light it up like Lacrosse.
