We commute short distances but like to take multi-state road trips. The Impala fits in the garage and budget but flies down the highway without any strain. XM radio and OnStar's navigation are great over the road tools. Finding an E-85 station is particularly cool using OnStar. The hidden storage under the back seat is nice for the lap top rather than in the trunk. All the trip computer readouts are nice when the scenery gets boring. We also considered the new Malibu but tiny things like the 2-zone A/C and power passenger seat ruled the day. A couple of small items would have been nice, memory settings for the seat/mirrors and a wider choice of wheels. Thank goodness for TireRack!
Remote start, heated seats, XM, flip and fold rear seat, tire pressure monitors. E-mailed by OnStar! Great mpg great ride, quiet. Huge trunk
Memory setting for seats/mirrors, choice of the LTZ style wheels without buying the 3.9L motor (or nicer Accessory wheels that are not chromed)
