Owned the car for approx 7 months and
so far my wife an I love the car. The
Chevy 3.8L ROCKS!!! There's nothing
like 150 km/hr with the air blasting
and getting 27+ mpg. This car blows
away the 3.8L Ford Taurus I couldn't
wait to get rid of. It's a great ride
in both the city and on the
Effortless 3.8L. Gas mileage,
acceleration. Smooth ride, plenty of
leg room in front and back, trunk, 16"
Correct the wind noise from sunroof
and back windows (when front windows
are up). Better stereo.
This car is so above and beyond what I
expected. I test drove SUVs and Sedans
at different price levels. This was a
clear winner. It drives like a dream.
The suspension is like driving a Caddy.
It accelerates without jerking. It
looks great, great gas mileage. This
is a great deal for the price. THIS IS
A TEST DRIVE MUST!
It handles really well and is such a
smooth drive. This is saying a lot! I
live in Michigan...pot holes every inch
of the road.
I wish I would have requested this car
I would suggest sales people to make
sure to ask once you've decided on the
I bought the Sedan model(bench front
seat) with the options package(3.8 V6,
antilock brakes, etc) which basically
makes it the LS without the trim. I can
only say that Chevrolet REALLY got it
right with this car. It is very
comfortable on long trips, easy
to handle, rides very smoothly/solid
grip on the road, and VERY good mileage
I average 26+ mpg in town and on a
recent road trip to Toronto (1050 miles)
averaged 31+ mpg - at an average speed
of 75 mph. To me, the Impala has all the
advantages of a full-size car, yet very
economical to own. Aside from the small
glove compartment and placement of the
cruise control, I am totally satisfied.
This car drives like a dream. I have had
0 complaints about it. bought it for
11,500 with 32k on it and it drives
beautifully. brakes are a little stiff
but i think the pads need to be replaced
and the rotors resurfaced, that's about
it. this isnt even the ls or ss and it
accelerates like a sports car. the
interior is spacious and i
can look at the exterior of this car for
hours and still not get bored. very
reliable car as all impalas are. not to
mention the fact that this car costs
less than a camry, maxima, altima and
accord with more room and a better
engine. save ur money and buy gm.
engine, exterior body.
brakes. i think gm ought to start
putting bigger rotors and calipers on
impalas, the car is big so regualar
sized rotors dont really give u great
