Fun to drive. Needs more cup holders! Did not get fold down rear seats option. This could be a problem, seeing that there is no keyhole to access the trunk. If you have dead battery, you won't be able to get jumper cables out of trunk.
Purchased the car just before Thanksgiving to replace the old one that was past its time (the rust finally got to it). Have no complaints or problems with the car. Been getting an average of 25 mpg in the city and on the longer drives right around 29, although I'll admit I'm a a bit of a leadfoot. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
HVAC system (user friendly), smooth ride, good gas mileage, great safety record, fully capable radio system (mp3 player plug-in and mp3 CD capable), huge trunk, and E85 capable.
Cut down on the high speed wind noise during the next redesign.
I just bought a used fleet 2006 Impala from Carmax with 7666 miles. I'm thrilled with the car and Carmax. I looked and drove many cars this year mostly via Avis Rental Car while traveling. Malibu and Impala stood out of all other models driven. Almost bought Malibu however found Impala LT with XM radio for less than lowest used malibu price.
