Product Reviews

Welcome to Consumer Reports.

We’re so glad to have you as a member. You now have access to benefits that can help you choose right, be safe and stay informed.
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.

“Seats little uncomfortable. Difficult for me ( I'm 6'4 and weigh 215 to find a comfortable sitting position for long trips. Little more noisy road noise than I think there should be.”

LARRY D., IA (2015 Buick Regal)

“Sporty ride. A bit stiffer than the typical sedan, but not in a bad way. Seats are comfortable. However, the rear seats are difficult to enter and exit for an adult due to low door opening.”

DAVID H., WV (2015 Buick Regal)

“I LOVE how quiet it is inside the cabin, and that was the primary satisfaction factors for it. However, the seat is way too hard, and I really preferred the one in the Lacrosse. The climate system is downright dangerous! Whenever I use the outside or A/C air toward the windshield, it fogs it up over just a few minutes, and I have to turn it off or point it into the cabin until the spots go away. My other cars do NOT have this problem. I also really dislike the digital temperature controls, and”

DOUG M., CA (2015 Buick Regal)
