We chose this 2011 Impala over the new designed Taurus. Yes, that is right!
Taurus - sit low, can NOT see out back window due to rear seat headrests (similar in Impala), too many buttons and too much electronic gizmo stuff.
We liked the simple, easy to use instruments, console.
Very comfortable for long trips (drove from IL to FL, AR, MO, KY, TN, more in first month owned).
Now have 15,000 miles and has not missed a tick.
We purchased new the base model...it had more features than our previous car, and not need to pay more for things you don't use.
Paid $19,500 before tax...NEW.
Excellent value for the money.
Comfort, interior (though plastic is cheap in all cars, not just impala).
Simple styling and LOW COST to maintain, drive, own.
It's a family car in the truest sense of the word.
Trunk opening and depth could use improvement, LESS electronic gizmo's such as ONstar and XM radio.
We unplugged both as we have no use for them.
