2005 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought it with about 480 miles on it. So far it has been trouble free. Roomy, comfy and kind of sporty looking. Only had the rotors cut and got rid of the horrible tires it came with since in winter it was terrible to drive. I have snows for winter and it's like a 4wd now! Interior is made a bit cheaply but sound, no rattles. It has the not so good rated 3.4 v/6 due to coolant leak problems later on with miledge but I have the 7 year extended coverage so I'm good to go I hope. Powerful engine when you need it, quiet at idle but rough sounding on hard acceleration, it can be quite a zippy car! Handles good, fair amount of body lean on turns but firmer handling tires take care of some of that.
Controls easy to reach, sporty looking, comfy to drive, dual climate controls. Back seats fold down for more trunk room, like you need more.
Make ABS standard on all models! Offer vinyl dash kits so you can colorize the dash trim color to say...graphite color or chrome, burl wood look,etc.
