The Impala And What It Means To Me — Ok, this car was a replacement for a decaying but dependable 1992 Buick Roadmaster. Right out of the gate this car performed and appeared well - that is until it was involved in an accident in December 2007. Despite this (and the six month down time it took to repair it) the car continued to outperform and present itself as simple and decent. The car does well on long-haul trips and is/has proven itself for normal day driving. Never has it left me on the side of the road - ever! The interior is simple and can fit up to six people (4 adults, 1 child and 1 infant - anything beyond that you're testing it's limits). The radio is incredible and although the casette is trying at times, it still can do the job. This car is up to my expectations as a car that can perform, look good, and not cost me a truckload to run. Perhaps my only gripe beside the tape player is the A/C controls - seems too much variable fan speed for a simple car as opposed to 5 speeds (incredibly low, low, normal, higher than that, full blast). The color meanwhile can be changed, but you get what you pay for. But be advised, LOW Clearance!

Pros

Very reliable car, very comfy on the inside. Also very good in an accident (ask me how I found out.) Very good ride, and overall good feel.

Cons

Feels like an old people's car.

One Good Ride — I really liked this car for its ride and interior, however it felt a bit big to drive around. I like 2 door vehicles, and to use to Jeeps. Handled very good and was even good in snow (for a car). Very good gas mileage if you're nice to it, and runs very quiet.

Meow — Performance is good. Feels like a sturdy build. Looks great with tinted windows. Good factory speakers. I love the heated leather seats. Great acceleration, and takes turns nicely. Even though its suppose to be a sportier car, its still a four door sedan with front wheel drive, but still lots of fun to drive!!

Best Car I've Ever Owned!!! — I love this car. It has a 3800 V-6 which has a great track record of dependability. It also has the power you need when you need it. Its decked out with all the amenities so its a very comfortable car. I get 24-27 mpg in the city and up to 34mpg on the highway. Its luxurious and sporty, the perfect fit for anyone.

Well, it looks like a police car, so people get out of your way on the expressway. It also looks "nice."

Cons

Everything but the appearance.

This Car Is A Rip-off. It Was Not Designed To Last Beyond 90k Miles. — Transmission - Began slipping at 90,000 miles, now it shifts hard after 5 minutes of driving every trip. Engine - Has some internal coolant leak, and I'm pretty sure the alternator is going bad. I'm pretty sure an oil leak has developed as well. Brakes - Will be having the 4th set of rotors put on the car in the next month.

A Lot Of Car For The Buck — Nice features of this car are its leather seats, almost new tires,a bench 60/40 seat for 6 passengers and plenty of room in the trunk for 4-5 golf bags. Wide stance body and feeling of stability and safety.

04 Impala — This Car just floats down the road, soaking up bumps, while having smooth, subtle, and readily available acceleration. Only downside I have found so far is the cost of fuel, although it does get ~30mpg on the highway.

Solid Low Priced Car With Good Features, May Not Be Everyones Car, But A Decent Choice. — I have had two of these Impala models and they have both, sadly, gone through very nasty accidents. However, the seat belted passengers walked away without a scratch. Protected. The various features, electrical systems, smaller engine (3.4l) and all worked well in these two vehicles. The year 2000 model came with Uniroyal Tigerpaws and that and the suspension made that year 2000 model feel like it was glued to the road. Especially in rainy Seattle! Mileage was in the 20 city and 25+ if you are easy on the pedal. Yet, if you needed to get up and stomp on the gas, both of these cars would easily handle it. Also, in 77,000 miles, all I did on the year 2000 model was fill up the gas tank and change the oil every 5000 miles.
