It has been one year since I purchased my 2012 Buick Regal Turbo Premium One from Ourisman Buick in Alexandria, VA. Overall it has been a very satisfying 8300 miles or so. Pictures are from today's pre-winter wash and wax.
This photo was before I wiped down the dash. Sorry about the dust.
This version of the Regal is a great combination of what I liked best about my previous two cars (2006 Buick LaCrosse CXS (comfort and quiet) and 2009 Pontiac G8 GT (handling and speed)).
Loves: Interior and handling; ease of replacing the front vehicle lights.
Like: Fuel Economy. My Onstar phone app says the vehicle has a lifetime 21MPG so far. Far better than the G8 GT and slightly better than LaCrosse CXS. Best highway mileage I have seen is 31.5 MPG on a 300 mile trip to the Poconos recently.
Dislike: Narrowness of the trunk. I always have my golf clubs in the car. Would be nice to have that 2013 Malibu-sized trunk but I will live with it. A smaller stand bag is much cheaper than a new car. It was a bit of a stretch but we can get a family of three’s worth of vacation luggage in the 14.1 feet of trunk.
This the typical load in my trunk.
Things I have done to the car: Window tint; cargo tray; all weather floor mats; Sylvania Ultra Star headlight bulbs; Polk Audio speakers to replace the base speakers; and a few universal panel pins to keep the hood insulation better in place.
Would I buy it again? Yes. Still would have preferred the Premium Group Two but none were in the area when I purchased. I will live without the LED accents.
One feature that seemed to grab attention is the 110 Volt outlet in the back. It caught more than a few passengers attention for some reason.
Currently there are 0% for Months PLUS $2500 cash back or $3500 cash back on remaining 2013 Regals. A great deal for anyone in need of a competent sporty sedan.
