Buick Regal "T U R B O ! !" by Loving Regal - Omaha, NE on 05/09/2012. Trim: 2011 Buick Regal CXL Turbo, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Styling, acceleration, fuel economy vs. power, quiet, features.
Cons: Backseat headroom is somewhat limited, trunk is deep but narrow, a small amount of turbo lag takes a bit to get used to.
Overall review: Mine is a 6-speed manual with the 220HP turbo. Funnest (that's right, I said funnest) car I have ever owned, and that includes a 2003 Nissan Altima 3.5SE that had the 3.5 V6. The turbo has just a little lag as you shift gears, but hit 2000rpms and 90% of the power is instant and it just flies! It easily gets to 60mph before leaving 3rd gear......4th, 5th, and 6th are just there to remind you the car can go 150mph, or possibly just save gas at 60mph, whichever you prefer. I'm a huge fan of the turbo. It just seems to deliver more power sooner in the rpm range when compared with V6's and that makes this car the most fun I have ever had. The biggest problem I have is driving 60mph, because the car easily hits 100mph passing cars on the interstate, just because you can. I know I'm not the typical American, but Buick features, the new styling, paired with a 6-speed manual made me love the car before I even drove it. Now I just love it even more.
