Pros: i like the look
Cons: may be a little to low to the groundover all has been a good car
Cons: chevy support40,000 miles and tie rod went bad, 50,000 miles water pump went out, at 55,000 speed odometer went haywire, then intermediate steering shaft went bad. chevrolet was notified about speedometer and steering because of safety issues, this is happening to a lot of chevy owners and they refuse to correct it. I am sorry to say, but I bought a toyota and it has given me no proplems. Why should chevy have a recall and fix there defective products, they dont care about the customer they will get there bail-out money.
Cons: no pwer seats
Advice: noneoverall this is a great car .really like the features,and how in handles on the road.
Pros: Quiet ride, electronics such as OnStar, XM Radio, etc.
Advice: It's worth the extra money over other cars in its class.I purchased a new 2008 (yes, 2008) Impala and I'm very impressed with this car. Besides the good looks, smooth ride and mechancs, I clocked nearly 36 miles to the gallon on a 200-mile trip at an even 60 mph. That's very good for a full size, 6 cylinder vehicle. The Impala is a great car if you're lookimg for comfort, dependability and style.
Pros: PICK UP
Cons: FRONT WHEEL DRIVE
Advice: DRIVE ITI HAVE ONE AND I SELL THEM. I LOVE IT!!
Cons: City mileage
Advice: It's a great car at a very reasonable price.I've owned my 2006 Impala for 2 months and it's been fantastic. The performance of the 3.9 liter engine is quite impressive - actually more than you need. The quality and performance have been flawless thus far. It's also incredibly quiet for such a modestly priced car. The car feels very tight and solid. The only negative is that the gas mileage around town is fairly low - only about 17 mpg if you do nothing but city driving. It improves greatly on the highway. I'd probably prefer the 3.5 liter for the better mileage, but it's hard to find them with the options you want. Most dealers seem to order the 3.5 in a stripped down version.
