Pros

Decent power from a four cylinder engine, great handling minimum understeer, great reliability, stylish

Cons

Gas mileage not that great, missing some major luxuries for a top of the line vehicle i.e. backup camera, heated steering wheel, cooled seats, Very high priced compared to similar vehicles with more features

Pretty Good Overall Car — I bought this car with great anticipation, although I do thoroughly like this car and would recommend Buick as a great car company, I do not LOVE this vehicle. The newer models are AWD and this is front wheel. It would have made more sense to make the GS model in rear wheel. Also it is very pricey with less options. The major flaw out of all the amenities is the lack of a back up camera. The car has great handling and very little understeer.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Great curb appeal - but the car's beauty ends there.

Cons

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.

Pros

Reasonably priced, has all the bells and whistles, performs like a 60K sports sedan, great looking, the car is not common - like bimmers.

Cons

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.
