Buick Regal Tour X


#61

Oh, I’m sure it will be gone in short order. Just not in 2019.


#62

In the meantime, I’m waiting for residual to drop to 40% on a 36/12 lease. Maybe by March :smiley:
Shame too…I had a last gen, and it was a fun car to drive.


#63

why do you want residual to drop?


#64

I was being a smartass. The residual has tanked all year. This car is, in all likelihood, never going to be a good lease candidate. GM doesn’t want them back at term.


#65

So there are finally decent purchase deals on the TourX. In my area, it’s about $6200 in incentives in an Essence (needed for the heated seats, unfortunately). So $10-$11k off MSRP on a purchase looks to be easily doable:

Anyone tried for a lease? I’d obviously rather go this route, and December is often a good time for GM.

lease numbers are still terrible. You’re much better off buying this.

Numbers are for 15k…adjust accordingly per below
(Add 1 pt for 12k + 2pts for 10k @ 24-27).
(Add 2 pts for 12k + 3pts for 10k @ 36-39)
(Add 3pts for 12k + 4pts for 10k @ 42-48)

YES, the numbers are worse on the 19 than the 18.

TBH if the Buick warranty was better, something like VW…then I might be tempted by the purchase. $24k is pretty appealing for this hauler. (not that I need this amount of space) but it looks so damn good.


#68

The warranty is 4/50k B2B + 6/70k for Powertrain. Better than a Chevy, but not as good as VW.


#69

'19 numbers for January…stayed the same from December…mf increased though. 18 lease support has ended.

Numbers are for 15k…adjust accordingly per below

My understanding is that the current gen is a lot less enjoyable to drive (and perhaps doesn’t even have the quiet interior Buicks are famous for).

Kind of sad that the TourX is facing this kind of fate… But we have an “Enspire” possibly coming in the near future, Buick is presumably focusing its efforts elsewhere…
