Cons

Poor handling.  Poor performance.

It's A Chevy. — A middle of the road car in about everything. Very comfortable, but very poor handling. It is just a mediocre Chevy sedan. Looks better with the larger sportier wheels, spoiler, and tinted windows. Being the base model, it just has an average V6.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

2005 Chevy Impala — Awesome in the winter. Unfortunatly have had to have too many repairs so far. Gas mileage is ok for what I do.Braking and acceleration are pretty good. If I didn't have to drive on the gravel roads it would be awesome

Pretty fun car to drive, Good gas milage

Cons

doesnt look as sporty as it is

35

2005 Impala — The Impala has decent acceleration unless you going from 30 to 55. it has good handling and can take some good curves at around 55. The model I drove had front wheel drive, so it gets pretty good milage. It doesnt look very sporty and it kind of feels like you should be a senior citizen to have one. But it seats six, so if youre looking for a family sedan, the Impala isnt a bad choice

Pros

fast, affordable, gas friendly, good, reliable engine

Cons

the leather for the seats could have been done way better, and steering could be nicer

Awesome Car — I've always wanted this car and when i got it, i feel in love with it. The supercharged 3800 hauls balls in town and stills gets 20 mpg, also a lot of fun highway, an amazing car in my eyes. I also like the 17's on it, not too big, not too small.

Great Car — Handles very nicely... accelerates smoothly, Interior is clean. Gets great gas mileage. I love driving it, whether its around town or on the highway doing 30 over the speedlimit ..Not overly expensive for its luxery. Definately worth the debt. For now that is ... Cant wait to trade it in for the Infiniti..- RIGHT JOSH :D
