I inherited this car from my parents as they moved on to a newer vehicle (Volvo S60).
We've had it in our family for about 10 years now and it's served us well - I just ticked over 201,000 miles this week and the car still runs great.
Even though the car is 15 years old, it still has most of what I want in a car: smooth ride, nice pick-up when needed, reasonable MPG (25 combined, 27-28 hwy), leather, sunroof, premium audio (aftermarket), seat warmer (aftermarket) and nice handling in winter weather.
One funny note was that I recently visited the junk yard to look for a spare part (armrest) and all of the Regals were newer than mine (1997), hehe.
Guess they last if you take care of them!
