2011 Buick Regal CXL Turbo: The Unbearable Lightness of Steering

February 17, 2011

Drove the Buick Regal for the first time last night. Miraculously, the freeway was clear. Don't know what was up with that, but I got to actually drive this thing at highways speeds.

It smoothly gets up to speed. Not too much effort, not too much noise from the engine. The throttle is easy. But I have to agree with Ed about the overly light steering. It is too light for this turbocharged car. Driving around city streets, it feels really light. And when you jump on the highway, it gets super light and provides no feedback to the driver. It's definitely this car's weakest attribute.

Nice looking car, though. I know some of you think it's bland, but I like its styling inside and out.
