The transmission has nearly killed us several times while merging into traffic. It has also just quit working, requiring On Star to reset the computer. Though nothing can be found at the dealer, several excuses have been offered. We drove several different Regals while test driving and one of those did the same thing but we thought it might have been us, well it wasn't. The car doesn't down shift while slowing down so when you go to accelerate there is a long pause (very long). The bad part is you never know when it will do it which will lull you into a false sense of security.
The rear taillights look like they were assembled for 2 different cars and the paint is chipping horribly.
We really wanted to like this car but just can't. We bought it because we wanted an American car with a German feel and that is what it offered being designed and built in Germany. The interior is pleasant and styling looks good.
If we could give it back we would but will suffer through (hopefully not getting killed) until we can trade it for a BMW. It's herky/jerky transmission and inconsistent manners have it parked most of the time. My wife is spooked and is afraid to drive it much. Big buyers remorse!
