I think it is not right I can not be part of this, since age in poll starts at 20 years old.
Just because I am only 16 .... that is age descrimination!
I did not know if I legally changed my birthday to Febuary 29th, that it would be this complicated.
With Buick's efforts to market their vehicles to a more youthful buyer, I thought it would be interesting to see if their rebranding effort has successfully lowered the average age of ownership (for the Regal at least). Historically, Buick has hovered around an average buyer age of 60. This figure dropped to less than 50 years old in 2018 according to CarMax.
The obvious accuracy limitation of this poll is the small sample size of forum members. Additionally, older folks are inherently less likely to partake in online forum activities. My aim is to merely feed my curiosity.
I broke the poll into two categories because I am limited to 10 poll responses (site owner, it would be helpful if we could create multiple polls within one thread ). If there is interest in seeing a poll for the GS or other trim specifically, I'd be glad to make one.

I'm a retired School Superintendent (age 76) with a life long addiction to Hot Rods, Customs and fast cars. Before we purchased our TourX we had a 2018 Camaro SS convertible we were using as a show car. We had only put about 3.000 miles on it in two years. Recently we built a 66 Mustang Resto Mod which basically eliminated the need for the SS Vert because two show cars in our minds, were unnecessary. We had seen photos of the Buick TourX but had never seen one live until we visited our local Buick dealer. After the visit, we traded the Camaro and bought the TourX. It's a great cruiser and road car that fits our needs perfectly. I've attached photos of our TourX and our Mustang hot rod because we think they both are pretty cool.

Thank you for bringing a Chinese perspective. Is it true that Buick tri-shield logo is considered special in China? Someone told me about it a long time ago. Regal is an amazing car, the best thing that came out of GM in recent years considering huge discounts. Most people in the US just never knew it existed.I'm 23 and just got my tour x (2018) for starting my new life as a graduate student in LA. Loved it! It is a little bit too empty for me to drive alone.
My mom drives a 2017 envision back in my home country, which is a really nice and fun car for my family.
And it is cool to have a different car from my friends here, they all bought Japanese cars, and I never want to follow the trend. When I want to buy a buick here, they keep telling me that the one I want is an "old people brand" here in the united states just by prejudice, but astonished when they saw my new Tour X and took the ride!
Fun facts. In my home country, people love the Buick brand so much. Japanese brands in china having a hard time there because of the history of WW2 and the anti-japanese mood still in people's minds. And even successful people tend to prefer Buick rather than Cadillac to keep a humble/low profile while still preserve the Luxury.
Buick sales in china outperform Chevys by several times, because people there really don't like the logo of Chevy's（they think the cross means Christian/symbol of tomb/death, yeah, just because most people are atheists they don't like it) so GM rebranded lots of chevy cars to Buick, lol.
And the market is so big that I believe gm cannot just make Buick disappear in the united states, or people in China will not buy them if the car is not "all American" at all (if one day Buicks are only sold in chinese market in the future, they will lose any "luxury-ness" in their brand)
