When I when to buy my next car I researched the internet extensively and
test drove just about all the cometitors (Accord, Camry,Passat, Intrigue,
Altima, Avalon, Sable, Intrepid). The Impala won my wife and my votes for
comfort , power, handling , features and room to spare. Plus it has 87%
U.S./Canadian parts content. Not to mention 5 star frontal and 4 star side
This was the only vehicle we could find that is fully loaded with availible
cloth seats. All the others had leather(Ugg!). HOT and sweaty( in
summer), COLD and hard( in winter) and slippery all year round (I like to
take the corners with gusto!).
The car needs a 3 or 4 spoke steering wheel for more choices in hand
positions. Also the rear spoiler sets too high in the back and blocks some
rear visibility , it also futters at speed (no center support).
