Only had the car for a few days but so far so good. Interior is very nice to behold and the ride is quiet. The four cylinder has plenty of power for urban/suburban driving but obviosuly cannot match V6 when it comes to highway passing and merging. The four is very quiet and barely audible at idle. Rear seat space is OK but not stellar. Comfort seems first rate however. Rear vents are a nice touch in the back. Trunk has nice shape and opening is relatively large. Trunk fully opens when latch is released which is nice. The main radio display has high resolution and allows you to see numerous personalization settings. DIC in instrument cluster is full of info and features like TPM, trip computer, navigation directions, etc. The instrumentation in the car is definitely comprehensive. The H/K stereo is great.

I purchased my Regal three months ago and have already put 5,000 miles on the car. This is my first Buick and first 4 door car. I am very pleased with the look, drive, technology, mpg, etc.. My only complaint is that I could not purchase the car with the V6 that comes in a LaCrosse. When I am accelerating uphill on a highway the car needs more power.

Leased the Regal on July 30th so have had car for about three months. The interior is so far above the Chevy Impalas I have had since 2001!! Very comfortable and stylish. Really turns heads. Love the MPG that I am getting. Took a trip from the Northern Adirondacks (Near Lake Placid) to Syracuse and back and going thru all these mountains I still averaged 32 miles to the gallon round trip. Can't wait to head for Florida Vacation in the spring and travel on all those interstates. Can't beat this car for the price. I have black exterior with two tone brown and champaign tan inside...very, very sharp.

I used the on-line reviews to help me pick a car because theirs so many 4 door sedan options. I shopped and researched extensively. This is the car I chose after looking at Fusion, BMW 3 series (used), Mazda 6, Sonata, Altima, Camry, VW CC and jetta. I love this car! See my pros and cons. It was a big toss up between this and the Fusion. The Fusion is a great car and if you don't mind it's boring everybody is driving one issue, than that may be a batter option. But I'm a 42 yr old divorced single guy and wanted something fun and cool to drive. The Turbo is a must though. I don't think you will be happy with the CXL.

This is our third Buick and we are growing to love it. We have had the Regal for about a month and are enjoying it. We had a Rendevous previous to the Regal, and I was not sure I would like going back to a sedan over an SUV, but the way this car handles is not to be ignored. It is stylish, and with enough room to accommodate us very well. I would highly recommend this automobile to anyone.

I love my Buick Regal! I have had it almost a year now and still like it just as much as when I bought it. I like the little added extras like, side defrost, hands free, the way the trunk is made to not have the hinges smach groceries, and the mats are locked down so they don't go up under your feet. The ride is smooth and the car is easy to drive. All in all, I am very happy with it.

In order to get the full experience out of this car and to beat the compitition, get a TO5 or above. You need the interactive suspension, 19 inch whiles, and of course the turbo engine. Changing the suspension, acceleration, and steering on the fly depending on the driving conditions makes a world of a difference.

2011 Buick Regal Turbo -- awesome sport sedan!

Having previously owned various German and Japanese makes, I can say that this is a standout vehicle and a great value (especially used). Don't let the Buick grille fool you -- this is an award-winning, autobahn-bred Opel Insignia from Germany! From all I've read, the Turbo is the one to have (not the base 2.4-liter). Unlike BMW 3-series, the Regal runs on regular gas and with smoother riding regular tires (NOT run-flats). The interior is far nicer than BMW, while the turbo 2.0 motor has more low-end torque and a broad mid-range power band. It is amazingly quiet as well. As with most Euro-sedans, it has a few quirks (some non-intuitive controls, firm seats, and less than ideal cupholders), but features a beautiful, aero look that seems very up-to-date. While not quite the "driver's car" as is a rear-drive sports sedan, the CXL exhibits no front-drive torque steer and has wonderfully neutral steering and handling. Plus it has many standard features that you would have to pay extra for in other makes, and some that are not even offered elsewhere. Do yourself a favor and check out the new Buick Regal. It is NOT your father's Buick, that's for sure!

I have the 2011 2.4 ltr. I have plenty of pick up from the get go. I was actually surprised when I drove it the first time at how much pick up it really did have for a 4 cylinder. The seats hug you, extremely comfortable driving position with the completely adjustable seat and steering column. Lots of leg room, front and back. Huge trunk. The driving is impressive, it's a smooth ride, quiet, and very responsive. Love the sunroof, that's probably what sent me over the edge when I drove it. It's worth taking it for a drive, you won't regret it.

I was absolutely thrilled to find this car on cars.com. This is the exact car I have been searching for. Our last 2 cars were Buicks, the last one was a Regal, so it was a no brainer what I was looking for. Classy & sporty, so proud to be driving this car. Everything I could ask for, can't wait for cold weather to use those heated seats. The only negative, if I had to choose, is a little hesitation from a full stop. It looks as classy as any car on the road, without a doubt.
