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.

Great Car, Great Price, Great Overall Value! — I can't complain. I haven't found anything I don't actually like about this car. It is reliable and very fuel efficient. It's roomy enough for the whole family and doesn't cost me a fortune in repairs! Smooth ride and great handle. The 3.4 liter v6 is surprisingly strong! Would recommend this car to anyone and would buy another one myself!

Great Car, Only Minor Physical Imperfections And Needs To New Break Pads. — This car is fun to drive. Has a lot of power because of the police interceptor so it does make it faster. The driver side fender and headlight needs fixed because of an accident which did not cause any mechanical damage to the car. I do plan on getting those fixed as soon as possible because I can get it done for cheap. It is around 17mpg. It drives smoothly and doesnt shake on the highway.

Pros

Nothing but average, too big for me now that I am not on the freeway as much as I used to be.

Cons

Boring.

Ok. — I bought it because I was driving around 50,000 miles per year and needed something that was physically comfortable and got decent gas mileage on the freeway (30mpg). So far I had to put in a new time flux capacitor and some work on the transmission. I put in a new K&N air filter, TOTALLY worth the 42$, this truly helped get rid of some of the sluggishness.

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
