    2002 Buick Regal - LS

    Pros: Comfort and ride

    Cons: no sunglass holder like the accord

    Advice: get the leather interior

    What a surprise. My previous cars were Accord and Camry. Both high-quality, dependable drives. But I wanted something just a little bigger and more comfortable. I found a great deal on a Regal program car. Now, this is a comfortable car. Just a pleasure to drive. The looks are refined and clean. No clutter -- inside or out. The 3.8 engine is perfect for highway driving.It's powerful and not to be confused with peppy.

    2002 Buick Regal - GS

    Pros: Interior quality and the Monsoon high wattage stereo system.

    Cons: Somewhat a little mundane on exterior styling.

    Advice: Sure you could get that BMW or Audi but for the money this car has much more value. I really didn't need a $500+ monthly lease payment. I have better use for my money!

    This is my second Regal GS. I previously had a 1999 Regal GS. I considered the Maxima SE but found I got a lot more for the dollar with the Regal. Excellent car and I am only 36 years old so forget the stereotyping of Buick buyers.

    2002 Buick Regal - GS

    Pros: Horses are there when needed.

    Cons: Distance is too great between arm rest and steering wheel.

    Advice: Drive hard for a deal with your retailer. Let them know your considering other cars first.

    Steps up to the plate and delivers power, performance with looks and comfort. It's got the whole package at a pretty nice price too.

    2002 Buick Regal - LS

    Pros: Excellent handling.

    Cons: Engine compartment layout.

    Advice: Forget the GS. Who wants to buy premium gas?

    While this car doesn't get much respect from the Nipponophants in the magazine industry, it is none the less an excellent vehicle. I have driven all of the Japanese competitors and found them wanting. This car handles as well as an Accord, but is so quiet that you don't realize it. It out accelerates the Altima and interior quality is far superior. This car is like driving a rocket. I think I experienced time-dialation. The stereo is excellent. The ride is smooth. The car is a keeper.

    2002 Buick Regal - LS

    Pros: smooth 200 hp engine

    Cons: cup holders

    Advice: Much more than is offered in the century or comparable imports.

    Smooth acceleration and nice tight handling in corners. The braking is strong and controlled. The exterior is sleek and looks like a much more expensive car. The interior is pretty nice and functional although the cup holders could be a bit bigger to handle larger cups. Lots of standard options and a beefy 200 hp engine make this a great vehicle for the money.
