If you still think of Buick as a brand for octogenarians with a taste for whitewall tires and vinyl roof treatments, it's time for a reboot. The Regal is a thoroughly developed and satisfying midsized sports sedan. That European feel is no coincidence, since the Regal is based on a German design from GM’s Opel division.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

CHARLES G., MN (2014 Buick Regal)

"LOVE THE ACCELERATION AND THE GAS MILAGE. EXCELLENT HANDLING. LOVE DRIVING THE CAR"

KEN B., OH (2014 Buick Regal)

"This Buick has a turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that produces 259 HP and 295 ft. lbs. of torque. The ease of strong ecceleration is wonderful and the car also handles well."

LOUIS L., TN (2014 Buick Regal)

"good handling, fun to drive,easy shifting manually,comfortable interior,easy to manipulate controls"

ROBERT R., MO (2014 Buick Regal)

"This car has a turbo engine, so the acceleration is great. It handles very well. It reminds me of how a sports car should handle."

GREG J., FL (2014 Buick Regal)

"Excellent handling and drivability. European feel."

Anonymous, IN (2014 Buick Regal)

"The Buick has a very powerful engine. While it doesn't have crushing acceleration, when you press on the gas you sink into the seat as the turbo spools up. It feels effortless and smooth, not jarring and brutal. The only thing showing you how fast you are accelerating is the speedometer moving quickly up the dial. The one thing I wish Buick would have improved is starting from a stop. I have to be careful otherwise the tires make a lot of noise, and the traction control light gets very angry"

Anonymous, MI (2014 Buick Regal)

"European handling and lots of torque with the twin scroll turbo engine."

MICHAEL B., MI (2014 Buick Regal)

"excellent acceleration for a 2 liter 4 cyl very smooth and quick"

Anonymous, NC (2014 Buick Regal)

"Really feel the 2.0 turbo."

Anonymous, NC (2014 Buick Regal)

"Hesitates between gear shifts on acceleration. Sort of misses as it shifts. Dealer says it is within operating parameters. Ford is much smoother on acceleration."

JAMES T., PA (2014 Buick Regal)

"Turbocharged 4 cylinder provides more than ample performance."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Buick Regal)

JAMES M., MI (2014 Buick Regal)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Absolutely not enough room in the back seat. Significantly smaller than it should be, and a tall person (over 5' 9") will not have enough leg room to sit comfortably."

Anonymous, NY (2014 Buick Regal)

"Regal GS front seats are too narrow and I am not a large person. The seat side wings need to be adjustable for comfort. Lack of a spare tire or jack is a major inconvenience."

Anonymous, CA (2014 Buick Regal)

"There is a rattle in the dash centrally located around the left edge of the in-dash display"

Anonymous, MI (2014 Buick Regal)

"The driver's seat is always uncomfortable because I have to keep adjusting the seat for comfort. The outside noise is bad with all the windows up too."

Anonymous, GA (2014 Buick Regal)

JIM S., CA (2014 Buick Regal)

CARMEN L., PA (2014 Buick Regal)

"this car has a lot of features and a high quality trim in the interior compares well to Makes and models with a higher price."

Anonymous, IN (2014 Buick Regal)

"The Buick isn't poorly priced when new, but getting a 2-3 year old model is incredible. For the cost of a base new Civic, I got Leather, heated seats, automatic climate control, heated steering wheel, sunroof, etc. It is also very quiet and comfortable. While it is softly sprung, the Buick is competent on twisty roads."

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.
