#8 of 17 Regal vs CC
May 02, 2011 (10:58 am)
looking to buy a CC or a Regal. I can get a Regal Turbo TO1 for 26.5k thru american express or a CC DSG Sport for 28.5k at a local dealer.
the 2k isnt a big deal for me but i just want second opinions on the cars.
anyone for the regal? for the cc?

#10 of 17 just leased turbo TR02
May 16, 2011 (3:15 pm)
Always appreciate the time people take to provide helpful info. So, this is my help. Just leased the TR02 CXL Turbo. After some negotiating, the rebates listed on the PO was $4,050, including the ALLY incentive. My total OOP for TT and first month and dealer fee was $1,500 ( I gave in to it) and the monthly payment is $285 for 39 months, 10,000 annual miles, no diposition fee and ALLY does tack on $2,500 to the residual if you want to buy it at the end. I do not think I could have squeezed the price much more. I tried the CXL but just did not think the base engine would keep me happy coming from BMW and Infiniti the past 15 years. The turbo has enough kick for me to not have buyer remorse. Steering is light but I can see myself adapting because the car gives a solid firm ride and the rest is very nice-both interior and exterior.
#11 of 17 Just purchased '11 Regal T02

Rebate $1K + dealer cash $1K + Pontiac owner $1K + discount $1K, + "generous" trade-in worth probably another $1K, = $5K off MSRP. Salesman said '12's coming in next week so they want to move the '11's. The 2.4L is just too sluggish (and real-world MPG is poor), but the turbo feels about right.

Found your post several months too late. I'm in the same boat. Just wondering if you chose the CC or the regal?

we went with the CC. if you drive them back-to-back the Regal (in T01 guise) vs the CC base DSG. its like going from econo-box to luxury car. the CC rides better (firmer but controlled), engine is more refined (less "punch" but not by much), the interior looks about a million times better in the CC, especially in the night. the profile of the CC (looks longer and lower) is better than the narrow/tall of the regal. Also, at the time the CC was cheaper and had 0% financing.
If you can score a loaded up regal for the price of a base CC (28-29k) i'd go with the regal but otherwise the CC is just a nicer place to be every day. I've gotten more compliments in the CC than i have ever expected. It looks, feels and drives like a much, much more expensive car.
But, drive them both in the same day. Go for longer trips (4-5miles). If the buick dealer has a used CC on the lot take that for a spin...even a used CC will show you the massive difference between the two cars as far as "feel" goes.
#14 of 17 Buick Dealerships

After the reorg, GM shut down the large Buick dealership in my town and kept the small one - don't know what was behind that. I've been interested in the new Regal GS but I doubt our little dealership (showroom only holds on vehicle) will ever get one in if it isn't ordered. So this week I'm visiting relatives in Phoenix and I thought maybe I'll be able to check one out while I'm here. I was surprised to find out the Phoenix only has 2 Buick dealerships in the entire metro area. Is this the case in the rest of the country? Is the Buick dealer network decimated?
