Never thought I'be be buying a Buick but i really love this car. It drives great. If you live in snowy New England, this car is a great way to have great traction without having to have an SUV. This car matches up well with the Audi A4 at almost $10,000 less. And it uses regular gas!
Four months ago I leased a 2016 Buick regal 4 cylinder turbo. I thought it was a little overpriced and the ride a little too stiff. Also the blind spot monitoring in the side view mirrors lacks an audible signal which I have in my other cars and has literally saved my life. Still, it looked good inside and out , and my wife loved the red paint job, so I went ahead. WRONG!. After leasing Hondas and Toyotas for the past 15 years without a hint of a problem, in less than 1500 miles--THE TRANSMISSION BLEW! Now I don't want the repaired car- at 79 years old I don't need the hassle of another problem sometime in the next 3 years of the lease. But of course Buick and the dealer make you sweat blood to get a new one, so I guess I'm stuck, AVOID MY MISTAKE! Stick with the Japanese cars!
I just wished I test drove this car more I would have relized how much road noise there is and not enough leg room for a tall driver I bought this used with 5000 miles and payed way to much but a lot less than new, can not see paying over $30000 for a new one no way this car fills like a cheap economy car something like a Kia or Hyundia not a Buick all I can say is if you are looking at one of these cars test drive it for at least a hour on the interstate most see what I mean about road noise
