Class , comfort and sport all in one vehicle!

Since 2011 I’ve noticed and admired the newly designed Buick Regal and every time I saw them I wondered about them. I had a 1998 Buick Regal GS with the super charge 3.8 litre engine thatI sold years ago. Fast forward to 2021 and here I am a proud owner of a 2017 Regal Premium 1 with the 2.0 turbo engine. Let me say that I love this car. I love the room in it and the comfortable leather seats and because I’m here in Toronto, Canada area the heated seats and steering wheel. My Regal is a sweet car! Quick as a whip and great on gas. My wife and I will enjoy many a trip in this beautiful car! I absolutely recommend and only wish I had of bought one sooner ! Lucky for us our Regal only has 19,000km or about 12 thousand miles on it. People just don’t take notice of these cars thinking it’s an old mans car - if that’s the case they are sadly missing out.

Trouble from day one.

Got my car used in 2018 with less then 12,000 miles. Its a 2017 Buick Regal GS. From day one warp right front rotors. In 2020 had transmission issues. Was told its the TCM or Transmission Control Module. in the shop for a week. July of 2020. Then 4 months later transmission issues again. Showed up on the dash board transmission overheat and was told its a self sealed transmission. Also engine idle. Car ran like crap. Was able to get from work and it would not move under its own power
