2001 Buick Regal/LS bogs down when accelerating into a turn.
I have a 2001 Buick Regal w/77,000 miles. When I accelerate into a turn it bogs down, now it's bogging down any time I accelerate, especially when getting on the freeway. With the economy the way it is, I cant afford to put it in the shop. Its been a great car w/no problems until now.
