Pros

Drives VERY well. The gas mileage is very impressive also. I'm also impressed with how fast it accelerates and how fast it can go in general.

Cons

The only con I can possibly think of is if you have a big family, then this vehicle isn't for you.

Impressive. — I really have nothing bad to say about the vehicle. I've never had any major problems with it at all. I'm quite impressed. GM did very well when they decided to start producing this vehicle. I'm very much so a fan of this vehicle.

Pros

Cruise control Power steering
Clock
Tachometer
Low fuel level warning
a 3.4-liter V6 engine that produces 180 horsepower and 205 pound-feet of torque. Stepping up to LS trim gets you a 3.8-liter V6 that makes 200 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque.
As one of the few six-passenger sedans on the market, the Impala does have an edge on the competition when it comes to interior space

Cons

Not Really Sporty or WOW factors interior wise

Reliable Safe & Solid — This is a Car I would have my Kids Drive I would not worry about going across country in this Vehicle. Room, comfort, reliable and solid. Occupant safety is a big selling point for the Impala. In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Impala earned five stars (out of five) for both the driver and front passenger in frontal impact testing, and four out of five stars in side-impact testing. In frontal offset crash testing, the Impala earned a "Good" rating, the highest possible. Anti-lock brakes and traction control are standard on the LS and SS, and optional on the base model. A side airbag for the driver only is optional on all Impalas.

Pros

Roomy.  Sporty.  Comfortable seats.  Large backseat.

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.

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

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.
