2008 Chevrolet Impala 50th Anniversary 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I previously drove a 2001 Monte Carlo SS after owning two T-birds (hated the 2-seater style change). Went with the 2008 Impala as there aren't many full- size 2-door coupes on the market these days. The 50th Anniversary Edition is basically an LT model with more sporty features, the car looks a lot like the SS (including same 18" wheels/rims). The car rides smoothly, gas mileage is pretty much what the sticker says (it all depends on how you drive it). I like the two-tone interior. Front seats could provide more "lateral" support. Like the heated leather seats and garage door opener. Would have liked 6-disc CD changer and premium sound system, standard sound system just ok.
Exterior looks, smooth ride, gas mileage, two-tone interior, heated leather seats, universal remote system
Larger side-view mirrors, 6-disc changer/premium sound system as standard feature (they threw in just about everything else), front seating that "hugs" the occupants better 9the 2001 Monte had awesome seats - important for someone with occassional back problems).
