not a car for weather if you want to drive

2011 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Rented this car for a 2 days in Denver May 2011. Rained daily. One problem with car is rear view mirror might as well be left at the factory. Can't see through "lazy boy" giant head supports in rear seats for a view though the rear window. Side mirrors small, no lateral extension, and soak up rain drops until they are useless. I had no vision from behind. As far as forward, the headlamps were so useless I exited the expressway to stop and see if they were actually on. Lane changes were scary at night in the rain given this. Can't report more because I rented a F150 next day that I felt safe in. One fun comical note on the Impala is a rear spoiler on a car that is a slow as a dump truck.

Favorite Features

Inexpensive to rent. Great rebates if you think you want one.

Suggested Improvements

Make driving visibility safe. Improve mirrors. Lose the rear headrests that block any chance of seeing through the rear view. I guess keep the rear spoiler if you think it will sell but it has no engineering advantage on this slow car. Spend the money on headlights instead.

Maybe next time you should take the upgrade.
