i see some rivs time to time around here. all beat up. wish it was mine.

reason now im switching back to luxury is im graduating and saving 10-20mpg isnt that large of a deal anymore. i almost got a CTS but the comparison to regal made the regal more appealing to me. plus i love my buicks.

Hey it's Scott! Someone from my part of the woods!

I've played with the Regals at my local dealer since we know the owner. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a 2013 GS.

Oh I know you're not...just stating how much I like them:D . When I was there last, my dealer didn't have any '14s in yet - I didn't know they changed some of the interior. Sweet!

haha thats awesome ZEP! god i miss that look! i miss my riv dearly. right now im at a standstill with the regal. i test drove the 13 and 14 but the technology and design of 14 has me swayed WAYYYY in that direction. the only problem is i dont want AWD and thats all thats out right now in my area. they said they will order me one and will take 5-8 weeks. so im just looking around and waiting.

its about 33k for the premium 1 package. premium 2&3 have a lot of random options that im not interested in, like having a little light go on when a car is next to me to know not to change lanes. its actually annoying and a distraction. also has a GPS and some things like telling me where gas stations and movies are playing/times. uhhh..yea i have a smartphone. waste of money.

hope to land it in next couple months! im being optimistic!!

Scotty! I'm glad you're back! Wow yeah that's a noticeable difference there in the technology. That's a lot of F'in buttons! I really don't know that I like all this crazy tech stuff in cars nowadays but I haven't actually used any of it - just hear people bitch about stuff not working or just sucking in general and so fourth and then you're just stuck with it 'cause it's fully integrated to the car. Anyway hell yeah to the regal!

ZEP, you should really consider a less than 10,000 mile 2012 or 2013 Regal GS. They're all over autotrader for less than 30K. The extra features of the looks of the GS would make it an easy choice for me! IMO, it's the best looking sedan on the market.

Regal GS is awesome. I'd love to own one. Just as a fair warning, be prepared to write big checks for regular maintenance. The Brembo brake pads wear out VERY fast, and are extremely noisy. The factory replacement pads are $350. They also eat the rotors alive. The tires are also above $300 (the Pirellis's). Struts, same thing.
You CAN put "normal" brake pads on the car. They aren't noisy and don't eat the rotors. There is a bulletin out for this noisy brake concern and to install "normal" brake pads. However, these pads take away the "track readiness" of the vehicle.
Oh, and the A/C compressor is loud on the car too. We've had many people bring back the GS for that concern. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the compressor, but the design of it all is noisy. GM has bought back a few GS models for this reason. We do nothing but clean them up and sell 'em as a Used vehicle.

Basically what I'm saying is that it isn't a typical luxury Buick. Many customers that buy them expect them to be quiet. They're WRONG. It's a damn sports car!!!!

Scotty, good call on the Regal that's not super-premium! All those gadgets, imo, would be a massive distraction. Looks like a TON of buttons but that's not at all a bad thing. Matter of fact, I went to the Philly Auto show a few years back and got inside a Mercedes R350. I couldn't believe how many freaking buttons were in that thing. If you coupled the R350's interior with the Riv's exterior, I think you would almost literally have a spaceship. Good luck Scott! Post pics when you get one!

Jordon, I'm actually not in the market for another car right now but the GSes sound like excellent deals. Right now, I'm definitely looking... salivating sick but not in the market. I think I'll wait for the 2014-2015 GN or GNX or maybe save up for a (fingers crossed) new-model Riv that hopefully will be released in the future. A Scion FR-S wouldn't be a bad idea either.

UPDATE: I have a deal in line for a 2014 Regal Premium 1. Base has ehhh in it. premium 2 has a bunch of safety crap that i find unnecessary and GS is out of my price range and like mentioned, the cost to own is VERY high. the deal i have in place is pretty outstanding, it is so good it makes more sense to get the car than to keep my 2011 sonata. My sonata needs new tires BAD, near bald, over next 6 months ill need new brakes and rotors. I negotiated a 32,480 MSRP down to 25,750. my sonata is worth about 11k trade in and i owe 7400. soo, theyre knocking a crap load off. Its a dark gray with black interior. it is sexy. The buicks arent selling well so theyre just trying to get them off the lots plus end of year and some sales are down. I am planning to meet with them monday to lock it up and drive it away!

the 2014 is very smooth car. i loved driving it the 3 test drives, a premium 2, and 2 premium 1s of the 14 and drove one of the 13s.

Nice! You mean on the new Regal? That could be sick, but I'd imagine the edges of the chrome stripping might be exposed (the ugly gray ends) if you put it on a Regal grille. On the Riv, the ends are hidden b/c the grille is recessed. But I dunno, probably won't hurt to try!

Congrats on the new whip man... apparently dealers all over the place are having a tough time selling Buicks. I almost jumped on a lease deal that was just going at a NJ dealership: 2014 Verano with OnStar, XM radio, and complimentary maintenance leased for 24 months @ $99 per month, $1000 down. I don't think I've seen a lease deal that low for years.

Btw post pics!

yea, i noticed that as well. Ill have to investigate and try. they also have the cadillac looking mesh grills which look sharp.

i noticed that they were hard to move. i def knew that as bargaining power, i also didnt NEED a car, so i walked out 2 times when they didnt hit my number i wanted. i ended up getting 2 calls yesterday that were matching each other. i just basically had to make sure i got proper financing and of course, the color i wanted wink

ZEP you might know, the onstar app for 2014's, it says if u access it once during the trial, you have access to the key lock functions on the app for 5 years of purchase date. is that true? cuz thats an awesome bonus.

i almost got the verano, just a little too small for me. wanted to keep similar size to the sonata. + i think the 14 verano interior didnt have intellilink 2, which was huge for me.
