Buyers may miss that the stylish new 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is a hatchback, not a sedan, at first glance. (It is also available as a wagon, called the TourX.) Under that exterior, drivers will find a competent and versatile car. The new car is roomier than the previous generation Regal, and it boasts a nicer interior. However, Buick dialed back on the sporty handling that made the previous car fun to drive.

    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.

    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.
