I've always like this car. Then, I read the reviews and I was convinced. My only regret is that I didn't get a GS. Rising fuel prices scared me as 93 octane is recommended, but probably would have been worth it. I was able to find a "GS looking" Regal LS with 16 inch wheels, leather, and gran touring package. Purchased with 38K miles and have put on about 10K. Only oil changes were needed thus far. Car feels tight and engine is strong. True, as others have stated, the gas mileage around town could be better. I would highly recommend this car.
Gran Touring suspension, comfortable seats, reliable engine.
Too late now, but the center console could've been redesigned to maximize space. Folding rear seats, which I think came out in the 2000 model.
