Excellent overall execution. This is the first new automobile we have purchased in 33 years, preferring used. But the factory incentives made this new car impossible to pass up, so we went for it and are glad we did. Great car overall. We appreciate the level of standard equipment, even in this base LS model. We did not want ABS and I'm glad it was optional on the LS so we could avoid having to pay for it one way or another. Fit and finish is excellent; no complaints or any need to return car to the dealership. The Impala is an outstanding value for the money; head & shoulders above Camrys, Accords, etc. Highly recommend that it be compared to those makes before assuming anything
Seat comfort. Cabin arrangement up front. Easily-understood controls. The attitude of the selling dealer and selling company; they want your business and don't act like they are doing you a favor by being there so you can buy their cars, as with many Japan-sourced makes. "Good vibes" all around.
External key lock for the deck lid; do not like having to depend on battery power to open the trunk. Rear visibility leaves something to be desired with high rear-seat headrests. We would have appreciated the deck lid spoiler being avalable on the LS to aid rear vision - and it looks good, too!
