2011 Buick Regal CXL Follow Up

So I went back and took the Regal out for a bit longer of a test drive.  Just like most of the reviews say, this thing just has NO fun factor.  You can floor the accelerator and there is just no real get up and go. It's a really nice looking car, you don't see many around so it is kind of unique, really nice leather seats, very quiet cabin but I think the turbo model would have to be the way to go.  The local dealership has two 2011 demo models available and the total lease payment is only $411 a month which is very good for the car you are getting but it just needs a bit more fun factor for me.  That is about $100 a month cheaper than similarly equipped Accords or Camrys, not to mention more upscale vehicles it competes with like the Acura TSX which will run you almost $200 more.

The salesperson being new and all really didn't help sell the car either.  I think it was due to the fact that I knew way more than him about the car so he felt useless to some extent.  He was nice enough though about it all......
