I’m considering buying a 2014 Regal. I have a few questions that I can’t find an answer to by doing internet research. Thank you Regal forumites!

1. Timing chain or a timing belt on the 2.0L turbo engine?

2. Interference or a non-interference engine for the 2.0L turbo?

3. Timing belt/chain change frequency for this engine?

4. Regular gas or high octane premium gas for the 2.0L turbo engine?

5. I’m a long time owner of an older car with a turbo charger so I’m well aware of turbo charger issues. Does the engine have an auxiliary electric water pump to cool the turbo down after the engine has been shut off?

6. An automatic engine kill feature? It turns off the engine, for example, at a stop light and then it automatically starts the engine back up again when the gas pedal is pressed. I think the Regal hyrid version has it but what about the standard non-hybrid 2.0L turbo engine?

7. What is the difference between the two red colors? To me, they both look like the same shade of red but I haven’t seen them in person yet. One is a crystal red tintcoat which is a $495 option and the other is a copper red metallic which costs nothing extra.
