I purchased the Impala in May of '02.
I looked and drove foriegn sedans as
well. I bought the top of the line.
It has more bells and whistles then I
could have thought of. Mine came with
On-Star as well. The hands free phone
although expensive, is a lovely
addition for a hard working mom who
needs to stay in touch. The pick-up is
descent as well as the handling and
fuel economy. Respectable crash test
ratings and a price that couldn't be
beat are what sold me. Now I have to
see if it stands the test of time.
I finally got a sunroof and I love the
cream colored leather interior. It has
a very attractive interior. The On-
Star, the compass, outdoor temperature,
garage opener, theft system, etc., etc.,
Shorten the trunk by two inches and put
it in the back seat! Limited
visibility with the silly spoiler and
how about some exterior side molding
that matches the paint. That sort of
style looks dated to me.
