2008 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
Was looking for a car with decent fuel economy, cost, features, and size. Cross-shopped Camry, Accord, Sonata, and many others initially. Some have criticized OnStar but I'm not sure why. It's free for a year and then you don't have to pay a penny if you don't like it. It offers great hands free calling, emergency features, diagnostics, and lock out service. Have used all but emergency many times. The ride is quiet and comfortable and I notice little wind noise. Many features from heated seats to dual-zone cc were standard. For the price I paid, I would have ended up with a 4 cylinder import comparably equipped. Domestic quality is way up lately and deserves a look.
Heated seats, standard XM, OnStar, dual zone climate control, fuel economy for size, massive trunk, comfortable ride, steering wheel controls, rebates, warranty, flip/fold rear seat, fit and finish, value, remote start, garage opener, styling, stability control, made in America.
Fit and finish of trunk is poor, rear visibility, telescoping wheel.
