I bought my 99 Regal as my first car. It has overall been a good car. The only complaints I have had are the low fuel economy (I expected much higher), and the unexpected failure of the transmission at 120k miles. My suggestion, which my friends tell me is good on any car, would be not to buy one with over 100k miles, or just get ready for problems.
Nice acceleration. I love the supercharged engine. Many of my friends mistake it for a grandpa car, while it will out perform all of their 4 cylinder tin cans.
