I leased a Turbo a few weeks ago and am pretty impressed with the car. Only one complaint so far...there is some hesitation/slow shifting in the first 2 gears. This has improved a bit since I got it and I am hoping that it will get better with more miles (only 500 miles on it so far). Anyone else with this problem?

I noticed the same thing with my CXL6 for the first 1k-1500 miles. From what I have been told it is the drive control system actually "learning" your driving style and adapting. If you aren't peeling out regularly it is a slower shift from a stand still. Mine started to get smoother at 1500 miles, and now at 2600 I hardly notice it.

I have been driving it harder and that helps somewhat. Hopefully, it will get better after a few months.

I am surprised that this car feels a bit sluggish compared to my VW Passat 2.0 Turbo. The Regal is a nicer car but the power is a bit lacking. I'll take it to the dealer if this doesn't start to clear up shortly.

Same problem

I just turned 10,000 miles on mine at 5 months. It seems to be a combination of turbo lag and high gearing. I love the fuel economy, handling and looks. HATE the audio system!

you have to go with the harman kardon. That system is the best I have every heard in any car. I bout the T04 which has it. I sell these ata a dealership and yes the acceleration from launch will get better. use the select shift if you need to wind it up in 1st or 2nd gear.
