      Really bad review or something. Not sure what your intent was with this.

      Buick are better cars than Opel/Vauxhall. 

      They are smoother and more refined even though they are based on the same platform and have similar engineering components they really are different.

      That design, though still handsome, is starting to look a little "long in the tooth," even with the refresh. I can't recall the last time I saw one of these on the road, although I live in a heavy-import sales area (Seattle), so Buicks are few and far between. Definitely due for replacement.

      AWD PLATFORM! I could see a 600 hp Ecotec (LDK) (LNF) (LSJ) or even (LE5) going in this bad boy...sweet potential...

      I've owned four Buicks in a row and I can't imagine ever considering the Regal GS.  When you drive one for a week (as I did) and realize that after a 45 minute drive you can't feel your toes... you'll be running to the nearest Volvo dealer.  The price tag on that car is laughable for what it is.  I could literally buy a very respectable gently pre-owned S-Class for what Buick wants for a brand new GS... it's a joke.  45K for a wimpy 4 cylinder FWD Buick???  Right.

      The current Regal is definitely not like the Buicks of old as it is definitely shows its European origins in terms of ride comfort and ergonomics. In terms of pricing, though, you can get a modestly equipped non-GS AWD turbo for quite a bit cheaper than you could get a comparable BMW, Audi, Mercedes, or Lexus, so it is actually a rather good deal. As for the GS, I don't think the performance difference, which really is more about the suspension now, is really worth the price.

      ^Just to clarify, I owned three LeSabres (92, 00, 04) and I currently own a Northstar powered Lucerne and a Cadillac DeVille.  I drove the regal as a loaner because I was actually intrigued by the styling.  I wanted to like it but the seat and driving position made it miserable.  It's just plain uncomfortable.

      Love the Regal GS (or Insigina VXR) ... Unfortunately we don't get it here ... Last Buick we had here was the Roadmaster & Last Opel was the Omega (talk about a maintenance nightmare lol)

      GM pulled an F35 with Buick, Opel, Vauxhall & Holden (kinda) & it actually worked! Design one car & adjust it to market specs.
      Why are they bothering with Vauxhall though? Its only available in the UK & its just a RHD Opel.
      Btw love the GS' rims.

      I've seen in Europe there is actually a hatchback version of the Insignia, so I'm hoping they'll make a hatchback Regal in the US, though I sincerely doubt it as us American's don't seem to give enough respect to hatchbacks.

      Nerd troll nitpick - a factor of two is not an order of magnitude.

      @David Cuccia Apologies for not including the actual numbers - US sales Buick Sales in 2012: 176K. China Buick Sales in 2012: 700K. Order of magnitude.
