2011 Buick Regal CXL Turbo: Very Cool Tradition

June 30, 2011

American cars, and GM vehicles in particular have long had a reputation for very effective air conditioners. As a kid, I remember my dad's 1971 Buick Electra's automatic climate control (yes, they had it back then) doing a great job of keeping that massive interior cool during those hot New England summer days.

With temps hitting the mid-90s here in So Cal the other day, our Buick Regal did a nice job upholding this tradition (even if it is actually a car from GM of Europe and not the U.S.). The air coming out the vents was cold enough that I was able to maintain a comfortably cool cabin with the fan on low. Because cool and quiet is how I roll.
