    Just a quick question to you loyal GM owners.
    Are GM's 4 cylinder engines much improved from those in the past? I know people who bought Cavaliers and Grand Ams with Quad 4. They were rolling disasters. Too bad because I liked the designs and overall layout of the cars. Because of the problems they experienced I was totally put off buying a GM car with a small engine.

    I saw this at the st. louis auto show yesterday. I am very impressed with the restrained but yet striking appearance. It's much better looking than any of its contemporary Buick brothers.

    It's the new Saab 9-5.

    I've said for years that I'd never buy a Buick because if I did I'd finally turn into my father. But, this is one attractive car, and I think I could get over the Buick thing real fast.

    I hate to say it, but Buick will never become "America's Lexus" by selling a $21K car. If GM wants an American division to have a car on the Epsilon II platform, give it to Chevrolet. This decision makes no sense, given the focused four-brand strategy that GM just presented. Buick has no business selling a $21K car, given the demographics they target and the Lexus-like image they supposedly want to represent.

    Word is that the Regal is smaller than, and has a shorter wheelbase than, the LaCrosse and Malibu, with which it shares its chassis. It is almost the same size as the Chevrolet Cobalt and the Cobalt's upcoming replacement, the Chevrolet Cruze.
    Word is that the Regal has a very cramped rear seat. Sounds disappointing.

    I see interior design for Acura and Buick converging. For the sake of brand identity and saving ourselves from blandness and utter boredom, can this be a good thing?

    thanks for the update. sounds interesting. i thing an "american version of Lexus" may be a bit aspirational. however, i am hoping the quality and styling are strong as, a bit repetitive here, very much hoping for GM to come back!!

    Hate to say it, but this one is MUCH sexier than the slightly block-like LaCrossse.

    Any word whether we'll be getting the wagon version? I think, even if in limited numbers, that would be the smartest thing GM could do with this car. I'm so excited that we're getting it, (and it's a buick, and i'm 23). I drove the Insignia wagon (in Europe with 115hp through the Swiss Alps) and despite the lack of power, I loved this car. The fit and finish is just excellent. Please bring the wagon over GM!
