2004 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
Most of the variations of the impalas I've driven have been very good and dependable. The one I have just bought recently seems to be very dependable. It has been well maintained other than rock chips all over the hood, (former owners lived on a dirt and gravel road). It has a lot of miles, mostly long distance highway travel. The paint seems to be original and other than being enamel instead of lacquer, it has a quality paint job. The interior is very pleasing to the eye, except for the carpet. The exterior and steering wheel that should be a dark Gray or black color. I'd buy all I could find of them if I could afford to (most would be used for passenger transportation in a shuttle business).
they are roomy enough for for passengers to ride comfortably. the exterior body style is very appealing. (if you look at it just right you can see various other Chevrolet features, like corvette taillights) the available power in case you need it. the fact it is not related to a Chrysler, or Nissan!
use the 14 or 15 inch mag wheels used on the 78 thrpugh 83 Malibus, Monte Carlos, etc. instead of the 16 and 17 inch wheels that you can't afford to buy tires for. do away with the computers and the airbags. return to rear wheel drive and v8 engines. if you drive them correctly they are cheaper on gas.
