2014 Buick Regal Premium II 2.0 turbo from North America
Very nice car
Wheel bearings at 70 000km, 3 of them.
Driver's sunshade mirror fell off.
Touch screen does not turn on at times when the car is started remotely.
Nice car, fast and easy to drive. Other than 3 wheel bearings that were replaced under warranty, no significant issues. The touch screen will not turn on at times when I start the car remotely, but turning it off and turning the car on again with the push button solves it. Remote batteries drained after 4 years, don't know if it is normal. Not a biggie, easy to replace for around 6$ a piece. Driver's sunshade mirror fell off after 3 years, was replaced under the bumper to bumper warranty.
The car has a very nice design. Mine is black and it looks very classy and elegant. Tough paint to keep clean though, and you can see every little swirl. But when parked next to a Regal of any other color, it just looks like another car, way better.
Space inside is very limited, you can tell it is a European (Opel Insignia/Vauxhall Insignia) design. Center console is very hard and not comfortable, storage space within it is almost non existent. Tiny. Storage space inside the car in general is very limited. The seats are not Buick like at all, very firm and pretty hard. It gets pretty uncomfortable on longer drives (over 3 hours). I am 6'2" and even with the seat all the way down, my head is extremely close to the roof. Back seat space is very small and head space as well. I cannot sit down upright in the back seat. People over 5'11" are going to have problems as well. Leg clearance at the back is not good as well. We have 2 kids and 2 child seats at the back, They fit well, leaving some space in the middle, but not enough for someone to sit. The roof line is very low in the back and it can be tricky to get my older son (3) in his seat. Trunk space is good, bigger than in the 2010-16 Lacrosse. Fits our stroller no problem and leaves half the trunk available for other stuff; the Lacrosse can fit our stroller and it leaves no space at all because of the shape of the trunk.
The ride on the other hand is like a Buick should be for sure. Quiet, smooth and powerful. It came with Michelin primacy tires, not very good; Continental tires are on the Regal 2015 and up, much better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
