2012 Buick Regal Premium 3 Turbo Review
Great curb appeal - but the car's beauty ends there.
Very rough ride with 19' wheels; FWD torque steer; very uncomfortable rear seating; turbo hesitation can be unnerving when quick acceleration is required; blind spots created by high headrests; never achieved best estimates for fuel economy, always at low-end
2012 Buick Regal - Premium 3 Turbo — With the supposed improvements in American automaker products, I decided to purchase a 2012 Buick Regal Premium Turbo 3...and quickly experienced buyer's remorse. The car was initially beautiful to look at...stylish and contemporary, appearing more expensive than it was. But the love affair quickly ended. My main annoyance, the often unresponsive/ hesitant turbo, left me feeling very anxious when having to overtake another car or enter any of the typically busy New York area expressways and parkways. The jarring, busy ride resulting from the optional 19" wheels, made the already poorly maintained local highways feel that much worse. Riders in the back seat often questioned if the car was meant to carry adults. And the overall fuel economy never achieved the high end of the estimate scale - in fact, it never even came close. I had simply looked for an affordable, comfortable car that offered respectable gas mileage, but that's not what I experienced. After a short 8 months I decided to cut my losses and went back to Toyota, a brand that had served me well for more than 20 years and I am driving happy once again.

2012 Buick Regal GS Turbo Review
Reasonably priced, has all the bells and whistles, performs like a 60K sports sedan, great looking, the car is not common - like bimmers.
FWD is a little torquey.
An American Sports Sedan (made In Germany) At A Reasonable Price — Essentially, the car is a high performance sports sedan at a very reasonable price.. The amy magazines that reviewed the car all gave it glowing reviews, and the car deserves them all. AAlso, and very importantly, it is a ball to drive.

Test Drive Of The Buick Regal Gs 6 Speed Manual
I frankly didn't like anything about this Regal. It's not a Regal in the sense of the name. It is a Opel made for the U.S. and named the Regal GS. The Euro version with the actual Opel insignia on it... Read More

Performance is lively in every respect. The drivetrain is as close to bullet proof as they come. Build quality is quite good. The exterior is on the "classy bland" side, interior is relatively well la... Read More

Solid Car, Good First Car. That 3800 Will Last 500k+ Miles If Treated Good.
Has a good amount of power for a grandma car, that 3800 N/A defiantly packs a punch. Another good thing about the Regal is that its really cheap to maintain, as long as you treat it nice and keep a cl... Read More
