I bought 2008 impala in 2011 with 59k on the speedometer. Besides a few issues I like the car. In 2013, the car now is at 92k.
Powerful engine in a light frame.
I replaced the following: 2 rear door latches at $140 each (parts only), front rotors($39.95 each, parts) and ceramic pads($54.00, parts). They warped when I bought the car.
Problem with the traction control and engine limit power lights due to improper tire pressures. The car should instead raise improper tire pressures, but it chooses to raise the other two alerts instead.
The cruise control doesn't work when I bought the car.
