Default 2011 Buick Regal Top Safety Pick, Lexus IS "Average" Infiniti G35/37 "Marginal"

"The 2011 Buick Regal has been named a Top Safety Pick from the
Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, besting models from Lexus and
Infiniti.

General Motors has said it has positioned Buick to compete against
Asian luxury brands, leaving Cadillac to take on European brands. The
comparable 2010 Lexus IS fell short of a Top Safety Pick by receiving
an “acceptable” rating in the rear crash test, while the 2010 Infiniti
G35/G37 earned a “marginal” rating in that test.

You really are a ****ing idiot. In crash tests the Buick will probably do
better but take a look at reliability after 3 years with each vehicle you
posted about. Your Lexus and Infiniti will be doing just fine, but that
Buick will probably need a new transmission, new door motors, lights
replace, electrical problems and a host of others.

Too bad you can't afford a new car! LOL!

***
From what I read, the Regal IS a European brand....an Opel rebadged
as a Buick.

I had thought that Regal disappeared from the US market and was
replaced by the Lacross, with the Lucerne being substituted after
the LeSabre was dumped. And I think this was true.

The Regal was only reborn because of the European connection with
Opel, IIUC.

Winning a safety contest is a positive achievement. Most cars today
fare pretty well. And this Regal, being of German extraction, may hold up
pretty well. We'll know in a few years.

Hey Douchebag, if you had the common sense to go to the site yourself
and do some research, instead of your usual US-Car-Pumping tabloids,
you might have realized what an ass you just made out of yourself.

What few brain cells john has left can't process your paragraph. It's way
over his pointy head. He would have to print it out and give it to a
responsible adult who can take the 8 hours to explain it to him.
