I traded my 2011 Buick Regal in on this 2016 because I loved my 2011 so much. My 2011 was not a turbo & it was a dark gray with black interior. My wife and I wanted a lighter color outside with a light color interior also. We bought it in July 2016 when Buick was giving 20% off on certain models. We used our GM points from our GM card and the discount on the car listed for 31,000 we paid $23,300 for it. I could not pass up that deal up. The color was Champagne Silver with cashmere leather interior. I love the changes & improvements they have made since 2011. My 2016 drives smoother and is quieter & the turbo engine is great. It is real easy to use all of the features this car has to offer. I can get in this car & drive it on a long trip & feel comfortable the whole time. This is only one the second Buick I have owened. I have been driving since 1972 & have owened a lot of cars & trucks over the years both foreign & domestic. We have 5 vehicles now & the Buick is by far my favorite to drive. I have test driven other mid sized sedans but I like the Regal best.
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!
