- 2018 Regal TourX Preferred, Sport Red
I've never understood why they call them Sport Utility Vehicles. They're more about utility (hauling patio furniture and ladders from Home Depot) than about "sport" (driving into the wilderness and hauling firewood and deer carcasses around).Exactly, who's really off roading these things anyway? I'd guess very few, and infrequently at that. Subarus that is.
Yeah, this drives me nuts. I'm over on the Outback and Forester forums (same username), and half the guy over there want to "raise" their Subarus and put knobbies on them...... say the Outback is better is that it has more ground clearance...
And I would love to be able to buy the slightly lower Opel sportwagen without the cladding...Yeah, this drives me nuts. I'm over on the Outback and Forester forums (same username), and half the guy over there want to "raise" their Subarus and put knobbies on them...
Well they are both ages correct, as I am 65. The blue one is my 3 season ride.I saw an article that suggested that Buick claimed 60, but an outside group determined that it was 70, but I dunno! Based on the responses here, it seems clear that the TourX appeals to a much younger demographic.

I should get Buick by end of January.
I have bad news for you about the TourX... the heat is terrible in them. My other cars are blowing really warm air by the time I get to the main road from my house, the Buick takes about 5 miles.Subaru is safe & great in snow, but if this is supposed to be a winter car, why does it take 7-10 miles to get any heat, and all the fasteners have poor rust protection.
My first post. I should get Buick by end of January.
Forester is 8 to 10 minutes.I have bad news for you about the TourX... the heat is terrible in them. My other cars are blowing really warm air by the time I get to the main road from my house, the Buick takes about 5 miles.
I've noticed that chill too. I don't like to use 'auto' setting on cold days. My lower legs are always cold. But when I turn off the a/c (as 'auto' setting defaults a/c to max) I instantly feel warmer.It seems to work decent in mine, but I have noticed a ‘chill’ at times, even when set to 72. When running in auto mode the A/C is always on
I agree. I have a 2018 TourX. I wish they offered the wagon GS version like the Opel Insignia.Since GM seems to be exiting the car market I would guarantee that the TourX will only be around for a couple more yrs (maybe not even that long) Buick seems to have no idea on how to sell this wonderful car. I have mine 10 months and have yet to see another on the road and I live on Long Island where just about every family has 3 or 4 cars!) Not sure why GM is so willing to let this car die on the vine...They need to aggressively advertise with some catchy ads.....Current commercials barely mention the Tourx at all. Maybe since they are made by Opel GM really doesn't care BUT they are the only american maker that makes a station wagon. Not only have I not seen another Tourx in 10 months but those that see mine ask what it is..and are shocked when I mention the words Station Wagon.....Hope it's around in 2 more yrs so I can lease another....BAD MOVE GENERAL MOTORS!!!!!!
