Whats the car you love to love, even though you love to hate the ones who make.... the car?

Now, I know I have a lot of these buried in my memory banks, but I can't remember them because I got about 2 hours of sleep last night. So I'll talk about whats for sale right down the street from where I work.

The Regal GS has a 2.0L turbo I4 (same as in the cobalt SS) making 270hp and 295tq. When the car first came out, it was only available with a 6spd manual trans. It also came with four piston brembo brakes up front, as well as 19" wheels which I believe were an option. If memory serves me right, 18's were standard. In 2013 they revised the car, dropping the power to 258 (and raising the turbo CXL to the same hp) but adding an optional haldex AWD system. The only part that sucks is, the AWD is only available with an automatic.

A couple of years ago, when I was trying to talk my dad into buying something that wasn't a GMT900 based vehicle, we went to test drive a 2012 Regal GS 6spd. It is, indeed, a very nice car. It feels well built, its nicely equipped, and it goes well to. Since it has the same ecotec as the cobalt, the aftermarket is there to really jack up the power to.

So tell me oppo, what is a car that you like, from a company you could care less about? Lets see some of your guilty pleasure cars.
