I drive a lot of miles... I'm retiring
my Suburban with 327K miles from daily
use. So when I went looking for
vehicles, SUV's were first on the list.
With the current political situation
and the potential for rising gas prices,
I looked at the Impala. Primarily for
fuel mileage, but also because it has a
roomy interior. I purchased this car
with 37.4K miles on it. I'm averaging
28+ mpg, at about a 70/30 highway/city
mix. There is no indication of the car's
age in performance, appearance, or
operation. It's a very comfortable
cruiser with ample room for 5 adults.
The trunk is huge. I miss my Sub, but
not at the gas pump.
Easy to find and use controls,
comfortable seats, dual climate
controls, programable security options,
28+ mpg at 75-85 mph. Peppy 3.8L power,
Cupholders! Too small, poorly placed
and none in the back. Better AM radio
reception... the in-glass antenna
doesn't cut it. Find a better
tire/suspension combo to reduce road
noise. It's okay but a little tweaking
would make it perfect.
