It's actually quite good, but that's my opinion.

Chevy Cruze will be built in Lordstown. The Regal will be coming from Germany for a short while until the plant in NA is ready.

Thats because it essentially is. There was supposed to be a European Insignia, a Chinese Buick Regal, and a North American Saturn Aura. Saturn got killed, so the Aura got reskined as a Buick (though its not the same as the Chinese Regal) as has been brought over here.

Yep, Oshawa...But, Shank is correct there are a lot of rumors flying on Ytown speculating what will built there in addition to the Cruze...But it is not this.

I wonder why they just didn't call it the buick aura. Seeing as how saturn got scraped, no one would give a flying f*** about the name.

But still... buick has come a long way

Aura was a Saturn name Plus, "Regal" reuses a Buick name...

Heh...sorry.

Beautiful car. I want very much.

And as for your inquiries...yes, it involves a certain girl...no, my heifer was not involved, although we did receive an email saying that there's picture of us together with our heifers from a dairy show up on a bulletin board somewhere in the AnSci building...

This one doesn't quite look as good on the front end on the (VXR) Regal GS concept, but it still is nice!

I'll provide some more details later, but short term ride and drive is pretty good.

Using Mrs. Number 3's 2.4L 4 cylinder Malibu LTZ as the starting point, this is as quiet and that's saying something if you haven't driven a new Malibu. It is noticeably peppier with the SIDI version of that engine which gives you 25 or 30 more HP. And the suspension on this car is much firmer. The handling is very sharp and responsive. From the Opels I've driven (but only briefly) they have maintained the European character of this car very well. And the interior? It blow the Malibu away.

This is a really fine car.

I'll say it again...the Buick Verano would make a great "production mate" for the Cruze at Lordstown.

What is this the sister car of? I thought the Lacrosse was Buick's version of the Malibu, but what is Chevy's version of the Regal?

Number 3, this is the 2.4L SIDI model? Looks like it has projectors...I thought those were only available on the Turbo models?
