Buick regal is worth considering as your next car.

I love the 2012 Buick regal that I own. It is navy blue with white pinstripes and Michelin tires. It also has a backup camera which I totally love. The backup camera really helps when I am in a tight spot or when I am backing up and there is something behind me. The camera beeps to let me know that there is something behind me and it has helped me so much when I am in the grocery store and backing up. It has saved me from fender benders in the grocery store lot when I back out. The Buick regal has great pickup for when I am merging into traffic from the interstate. If there is a lot of traffic on the interstate and I begin to merge, then the pickup is phenomenal. Also the pickup comes in handy when I am passing from another lane and I need to merge into traffic quickly. The interior of the car is beige leather which looks so good withe the navy blue of the car. I always buy leather because leather makes it easy to slide into the seat. The leather has also held up beautifully. My regal also has performed reliably. I have not had any major repairs in the five years that I have owned the car. I also like the wood look that is inside the car. It makes the car interior look luxurious. The only thing that I have been disappointed in is the air conditioner went out this summer and I had to buy a new compressor. However, this has also happened on other cars so I was not that surprised. All in all I am very happy with my Buick regal.

This vehicle is comfortable, reliable, has many great features!

This vehicle is very reliable. It has menu settings easily accessible in the cars dashboard. This menu includes items such as vehicle information, mileage/ fuel economy, navigation, etc. My vehicle is comfortable, however there is limited room inside. Not a great choice for small families. This car has great gas mileage and keeps you up to date on your car's fuel economy, you can access this feature through the cars menu option. This vehicles sound system is excellent, very clear. For those people who like a nice bass in their vehicle this car is a nice choice. You can access the cars sound system without leaving the wheel, you can answer calls without leaving the wheel, you can access your car's menu without leaving the wheel. This car rides smoothly, you can keep up in your tire pressure by accessing the vehicles menu option. I have leather seats in my vehicle, seat warmers, and he seats are fitted to your bum. This car has good maneuverability, nice handling.

The car is beautiful and reliable inside and out.

My Buick has been a very good car. It is very reliable and very good on gas. We get about twenty five miles per gallon. It is very comfortable. Any one who rides with us says how comfortable the seats are in the front and back. We have taken long trips in this car and been very comfortable the whole time. Plenty of space and comfortable seats. The interior is very nice. Love the controls on the steering wheel and the way the dash is set up. We keep up on maintenance and have gotten new tires. That is all we have had to do in six years.
