I was very disappointed in the newer Impala as I owned a 2005 and loved the vehicle (my fault for not researching). Chevrolet has left out many of the old standards of comfort and the gas mileage is very disappointing. We have owned at least six Chevrolet cars and I'm sorry to say I will think twice about purchasing another.
I like the style of the car and the uncluttered dash.
I used to get 30 mpg and now get 22 mpg. Chevrolet should be ashamed for not improving the mileage!!! Make the seats softer - my husband's truck is more comfortable. I miss the back seat that folded down for trunk access. I like a car with the bench seat but please return to the older style.
