We believe the Impala is a good car at a good price. We considered Saturn, Nissan Altima and Honda Accord but the Impala just seems like more car for less money than any of those. It is too early to judge long term quality and gas mileage is not what others have reported but we are happy with our purchase so far. Seems as solid as the Cadillac we traded and has much more room inside. Only gripe so far are the seats which are not padded enough. Nowhere near as comfortable as either the CTS or our 2005 Impala.
XM adio, wood dash, huge trunk, interior room.
Better padding in front seats, fold down rear seats or at least a pass- through, we miss the overhead sunglass holder and leather wrapped steering wheel of our older (2205) Impala.
