Expensive replacement parts

Pimp Car :p — Although I've had to replace a couple of different parts it is fairly reliable. I've driven it to OK and Ames with no problems. Never broke down for me. Large and comfortable. Not a granny car like most ppl say. Although I'd get one for my grandma if she wanted one. Good gas mileage. It's my baby.

Great Car! — We bought this car slightly used, but, it doesn't matter to us at all. It's a great car! Tons of room, good gas mileage. Smooth ride, handles bumps well.

02' Chevy Impala Police Interceptor — Acceleration is great! Braking and handling are good for how big the car is. No squeaks or rattles, its a very solid car. Has need a few basic repairs, nothing big. I like that it is the most fuel efficient police car out there.

It's A Really Reliable Car, And Great For A First Car. — How big and long it is. It's a big body style car in which I prefer a sportier car. This was my first car which I really enjoyed it. It was my grandfathers travel car. So it has quite a bit of miles on it, however I put 30,000 miles on it and never had a single problem occur.

Love It — very nice sturdy car that I dont have many problems with. Have replaced a few things but all were general maintenance or where my fault for not properly taking care of it when the time came, IE ceased engine due to lack of oil changes.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Sleek, Stylish And Easy To Drive — The car is easy to handle, is a champion when it comes driving on any road surface and in all kinds of. The gas mileage is good for the size of the car. Maintainance has been low. It is a well built car and very dependable.

Descent Car — All in all its just over average, which is a very good place to start for a first time buyer. especially for the price. Ibought an impala that had rear end damage for 500, for parts, hood front bumper and front panels,ect. I bought another that had hit a deer for 800. with just using my own time and 1300$. i had purple and white impala, so i obviously painted it.

Pros

Very smooth and comfortable to drive, traction control works great when on dirt, sand, snow, wet surfaces, extremely sturdy, very spacious trunk, maintenance cost is very very low. Braking is excellent and very responsive.

Cons

Very heavy for a sedan, however, it is very sturdy. Back seats don't leave much room for adults. Car rides/drives so smooth you can't even tell when you're speeding, gotta keep an eye on the speedometer.

Best Sedan Ever Owned — There is nothing that I do not like about this car. I would definitely recommend this car to others. It looks very sleek, extremely smooth ride. For a car this size and weigh, it is very easy on the gas mileage.

Fantastic Car — Quick, quiet acceleration! Brakes and steering are legit. No repairs except for a squeaky belt. I'll be fixing soon. Leather interior, heated seats in the front. 14MPG. The car is really fun to drive. Very easy and very nice. Love it!
