2011 Buick Regal: Ironically Cramped for Golf

February 24, 2011

Calm down, this isn't my only gripe (more later), but it was the one that seemed the most ironic during my weekend trip to Vegas. The Regal's pinched rear end may look handsome, but it makes storing golf clubs a bit difficult. I know Buick's going for a younger demo these days, but young people still golf, and they'll find a trunk that struggles to hold more than one golf bag.

The trunk mouth is wide enough, so that's nice, but one bag just barely fits. To add a second, you have to place it horizontally (pictured), or if you need to carry other stuff (say, to a bachelor party) and your second golf bag is crappy/small enough (as the one pictured is), then you can cram it in widthwise with the knowledge that you might damage your clubs.

Do they fit? Yes. Do they fit well? No. Good thing Tiger Woods isn't shilling for Buick any more (for more reasons than this, mind you).

Also, it would make storing Takahashi back there a bit difficult.
