The speakers will randomly not work, causing me to turn the radio off for about 5 minutes, then back on. I have only had the car about 8 months, put new brakes in at about 3 months of ownership, and I have to put new brakes in again, which from what I have heard from other Regal owner's isn't uncommon. The driver's power window button sticks down, for no reason, and the windows shake really bad on the way down. Sometimes I wonder if they will come back up...
Don't buy one with chrome around the bottom of it, because any nick or dent shows really well.
The hood ornament reminds me that I was only 6 when the car was made, but don't tare it off, cuz I've heard it causes huge rust problems. It needs a new muffler and new struts. The dealership told me that the old guy who had this car before me never took it out of state, except to Wisconsin (20 miles from Minnesota), but the car bottom has quite a rust problem, but its not noticeable from just looking at it.
Its engine is not too impressive... I just replaced a head gasket because I was "driving too fast", as I was told by the mechanic... I was doing 75 miles/hour on the way back from River Falls, WI, and 5 miles from my house, the low coolant light came on, so I turned the heat on, slowed down to 35 mph and drove it home. When I got home, steam was coming out of the engine... $1,000 dollars later... it is now fixed.
Comfy seats for long drives.
Poor traction in snow compared to the Lumina (which is odd, consideing that they are both pretty much the same cars...)
Not sure if it really does have leather, or immitation leather...
Stereo sucks, but don't pay to put another one in... its not worth it.
Awesome heater/ air conditioner.
Gas mileage is about 20 highway, 18 city.
Haven't heard other positive comments about this car. Most, from the 6 or 7 people I have talked to, have said that the car is good for a few years, then it goes crappy... fast and expensively...
