If you still think of Buick as a brand that's only 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's more reminiscent of an Audi A4 than a softly sprung luxobarge. That European feel is no coincidence, since the Regal is based on a German design from General Motors' 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.

    Robert W., VA (2017 Buick Regal)

    "A strong complaint about AWD. It does not help the handling in bad weather. The AWD in the Subaru Forester is excellent and I can feel it kick in. Seems like Buick just put a sign on the back called AWD and didn't actually add it to their wheels."

    Linda P., MI (2017 Buick Regal)

    Value

    Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

    What Owners Say

    "Good price for upscale car. Love the 'safety' features, especially blind spot signal and adaptive cruise control. Extremely disappointed about the AWD, however. It does not help in the snow at all. I complained to the dealer and he said it was my driving. In fact, the AWD does not improve handling in bad weather."

    Linda P., MI (2017 Buick Regal)

    "Excellent manufacturer rebates and financing through credit union"

    Anonymous, LA (2017 Buick Regal)

    Anonymous, AZ (2017 Buick Regal)

    "Feel like the dealer mislead me. I gave them specific instructions on what I wanted including the turbo package and did not get it. I should have backed out."

    Paul P., AZ (2017 Buick Regal)

    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.
