I did purchase AcuraCare on my Legend and it paid for itself. The radio was replaced once and the power lock actuators (both) on several occasions. I'm not so much concerned about getting my money out of it as I am about the fear of the unknown. With an extended warranty, you pay the piper up front, once.
Anyhoo... You can purchase a factory (Major Guard) extended warranty from any GM dealer. Markup amongst dealers varies widely. I did some poking around on the net and found this:
Compared to my dealer and several others in the area, they're willing to cut their margin (though still healthy) considerably more slim.
Oh.. one more thing. Thanks etharmon. I've never noticed this light-dimming phenomenon on any of my previous four ABS equipped cars so, to me, it seemed odd.
It is easy to see that both Century and LeSabre are outselling Regal about 2:1, and that Regal outsells Park Avenue in about the same proportion.
Most strange and unexpected, IMHO, is the very deep fall of the Grand Prix sales.
The Lumina data look funny: turned to be, the venerable car, available for the second year for fleets only, is still alive and well, with its sales increasing...
The OEM Regal tires, Goodyear Eagle LS P225/60R16, have the S or T speed rating:
i.e. 112 or 118 mph respectively:
The Regal is electronically governed, and at about 110 mph the gas flow stops. The weak link are the tires: I had read, that the same Regal GS sold in Europe with the better tires have the top speed limited to 220 km/h (137.5 mph). This number looks very reasonable: for GP GTP and Olds Intrigue with performance package the top speed is the same.
By the way, even lesser cars like Chevrolet Malibu are very capable to speed exceeding 100 mph.
Of course, all of this is pure theory. It would be reckless to drive so fast on the US highways.
2. Concerning the prices for Camaro/Firebird with V-8 engine:
It is easily check the prices at http://www.gmbuypower.com/
2001 Camaro Z28 starts from about $22,300, Firebird Formula - from $24,500, TransAm - from $27k. All of this are MSRP for coupe, without options. About the same price range as with Regal.
Though, it is possible to load a convertible TransAm up to almost $39k...
3. Regal GS have very good acceleration from stop. Much better than any other sedan in the price range, except GP GTP. With the same engine, transmission, and underbody, the two cars have practically the same specs.
