Hargett entered the sweepstakes while she was shopping online for a used vehicle. "We are thrilled to present Ms. Hargett with a two-year lease on the Buick Regal, an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Top Safety Pick and winner of NADA Guides Car of the Year Award," said Tom Moran, of Art Moran Buick-GMC, who is also president of the dealer group.
He added that the 2011 Sweepstakes will begin next week and a lot of participants are expected, as “Buick and GMC vehicles continue to experience a resurgence in popularity due to their advancements in fuel efficiency, design and performance."
The Regal Turbo is based on Opel’s Insignia and is powered by a 2.0-liter engine that uses direct injection to deliver 220 horsepower.
