I drove an n/a one in November, and hated it. The throttle was soft and spongey, and it just didn't feel like a well built car. I sure hope the turbo is much better, but I have my doubts...

Like I said, don't even bother with the non-turbo versions.

The Turbo version is a lot smoother and much more fun to drive.

they had a lacrosse and a regal side by side when i looked at the regal and they both look roughly the same of course the lacrosse being larger and having a bigger engine. Id take either one really.

I'd really like to see what the GS is gonna be like. That would probably be the only new Regal I'd ever buy..
