The Buick Regal is a well-honed, pleasant sedan brought over from GM's German Opel subsidiary. As such it conveys a typically European driving experience, with a taut and steady ride, sporty handling, and excellent fit and finish. Firm, supportive seats and tight rear accommodations are another European hallmark. The base four-cylinder engine is underpowered, but agile handling tends to help make up for that.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How?

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
