Roadfly.com - 2011 Mercedes GLK 350 Test Drive & Review
Host Emme Hall reviewed the 2011 Mercedes-Benz GLK 350. This is a luxury
ute in the same class as the BMW X3, Audi Q5, and Acura RDX.
The GLK wins points for its clean design inside and out and its bag of
luxury features, as well as its great on-road handling.
It loses a few points for a typically German sticker price, and less cargo
room than competitors like the X3.

2008 Buick Enclave Review - Kelley Blue Book
Many people think Buick only makes cars that appeal to the oldest of
drivers. But it may be time to reassess that opinion. With the Enclave
crossover-SUV, Buick shows that its vehicles can not only be comfortable
and quiet but also, dare we say, cool. The 2008 Buick Enclave isn't Buick's
first foray into the world of crossover SUVs but it is the brand's
strongest effort yet. Upscale styling, a distinctive interior and an
obsessive focus on noise reduction distinguish the 2008 Buick Enclave from
the Saturn Outlook and GMC Acadia, which share its underpinnings. For more

2013 Buick Enclave First Drive Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Buick Enclave is a luxurious people
mover that's been updated for a more modern and sleek design. LED daytime
running lights make for the bold first statement. And optional 20 inch
wheels body-colored everything and a new upscale interior separate the 2013
Buick Enclave from its sister cars the the Chevy Traverse and the GMC
Acadia. We recently had a chance test drive this most popular of all Buick
Models in Kentucky. Check out this first drive review that Roman filed
after hustling the big Buick through the Kentucky countryside.

2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Review and Road Test
In my mind, Volkswagens used to be the "Euro Buick." Positioned as a note
above the mass market rabble, VW's Passat shared parts with Audi's A4, the
Touareg and Phaeton were luxury cars with a mass market logo on the hood.
Then Volkswagen decided this was the wrong strategy for them so they
repositioned VW as the German alternative to Toyota and Chevrolet. This
left a gaping hole in the market for shoppers looking to step into a
Eurpoean near-luxury vehicle that flew under the radar. And then Buick
stepped in. Say what? That's right, Buick's Opel-based product offensive
has transformed the brand from Barcalounger wheels for the octogenarian to
a window into the soul of GM's German brand. This transformation isn't an
easy one as Buick's problem wasn't just blue-haired buyers and slinky-soft
springs. Buick is the penultimate middle child. Jammed between Chevrolet
and Cadillac, brand B's mission is to give Chevy buyers something to aspire
to and Cadillac buyers something to graduate from. The Buick Regal I had
for a week is in even more of a tight spot being the middle child's middle
child slotting between the Verano and LaCrosse.
GM's HiPer Strut suspension is designed to bring the steering axis more in
line with the tire centerline, something you typically find in rear-wheel
drive cars. Aligning the axises more closely results in better tracking,
less torque steer and a front tire with a more consistent camber across the
suspension's travel. Versus the outgoing model, the front tires contact
patch is improved in corners when the front suspension is loaded resulting
in higher grip. Coupled with an AWD system that sends 50% of the power to
the rear under hard acceleration, we get the first Buick in a long time
with virtually zero torque steer.
The downside to the trendy new steering knuckle design is feel. Steering is
very precise but suffers from the same Novocaine-laced feeback as
everything else out there with electric power steering. Coupled with a
58/42 F/R weight distribution, the Regal GS has impeccable manners up to
9/10ths where things go pear-shaped and you start oversteering off into the
bushes. Trouble is without steering feedback it's hard to tell where
9/10ths is located. In contrast, the Volvo S60 T6 AWD and S80 T6 AWD offer
less grip but more feel.
2014 Buick Regal GS AWD Exterior-007
Driving a FWD Regal back to back with out AWD tester, I kept thinking
"there's just something I dislike about the FWD model". As it turns out
there is a reason the FWD Regal felt unsettled in the rear over broken
pavement, the AWD model gets an entirely different "H-Link" independent
rear suspension. Coupled with the active dampers, the Regal felt well
composed on a variety of road surfaces despite being tuned firmer than the
rest of the American and Swedish competition.
Put your foot to the floor and the 2014 GS will run to 60 in 6.7 seconds,
exactly the same as the W-Body Regal GS I remember with fond memories. The
difference of course is that the W-Body's torque steer made the car feel
like it was part car ans part carnival ride while the 2014 model tracks
straight and true with zero drama all the way to a 15.2 second 1/4 mile.
Stacking this up with the competition, the Regal is notably slower than the
Cadillac CTS/ATS 2.0T and Volvo's 3.0L turbocharged models; and a hair slower than the
3.7L Lincoln MKZ, Lexus ES 350 and Acura TL.
