Another lackluckster car from GM
By sebringdriver on


2012 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Pro: It's large.
Cons: Everything else.
Aside from it's generic overall design, and terribly poor road handling, the Impala is very generic in both design and feel.
Even with a fully loaded LTZ, I can't help but feel disappointed, and honestly a little embarrassed every time I drive this car.
After all this IS used heavily as a fleet vehicle, and not only that, everyone seems to own one (why? I'll never know).
Pulling this vehicle into a parking spot is near impossible on the first try- same with just about every oversized vehicle GM pumps out.
Be prepared to feel every bump in the pavement too, as well as intense body lean in about every corner.
Do yourself a favor don't buy this car

Best Features

Heated Seats and Remote Start

Worst Features

The overhaul of the 2013 model might have done the trick for some, but let's see how those hold up.

Why buy the car if you dislike the looks and styling so much? Or don't feel comfortable doing day to day things like parking a large car? Or feel embarrassed driving it? It seems like an odd choice to spend a lot of money on a car you dislike so much on the surface.
