2008 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Avid Chevy lover, drag racer, car collector. Traded my 03 Impala LS last week, for a new 08 LS. great sales staff, not pushy. first impressions of car, very good.Quick test drive, made the deal, thinking that I was replacing the same ol car with a new one. Wrong! The fuel mileage is better, there is poor erganomics to the car. Cup holders are awkwardly placed in the center console. the seats are hard, unable to adjust properly for comfort. The car handles poorly at high speeds, rocks and pitches in the corners. The biggest dissapointments is the sound system. It sounds like a cheap 50 dollar knock off from K-mart.The car reaks of cheap! GM has lost its way again! I'm getting rid of it!
Brakes, stops on a dime, gives 9 cents change.
Move the console forward, raise the cup holders as so one can reach with out contorting wrist. Re-visit 03 designs, improve the seats.Put more storage back in the console area, and over head.Re- visit 2003 styling and materials, especially headliner, cheap, cheap, cheap!
