CCR isn't really much better than the FE2 in the your 1992 SSE, or the red SSEi, but still a definite step up. I also notice how much better my FE1 SLE with 207,000 miles rides than his Regal. I've also driven 3 Regal GS'* (1 1997, 1 1998, and one 2001), and they all had the harsh ride, but not quite as bad as the GP GT or GTP'*.

- I could never get an e-mail response from City Public when I was shopping for cars in Illinois. It doesn't seem like they are very committed to customer service.

Caveat emptor
