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

55

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.

Dependable and Reliable

Not sporty enough for me...

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

Looks, size, performance, reliable

Parking is tough because the car is so big

Nice And Roomy With Great Sound System! — It's a pretty big car with a HUGE trunk! The only downside to having a big car is parking. But it's a great looking car, especially with the spoiler!

Pros

A great daily driver and wonderful on the freeway

Cons

Ugly as sin!

65

Good Overall Car, Great To Travel With — This car is so freak'n ugly! Those tail lights that tried to be a retro through back did NOT work! That being said this is a great car if you want to be seen in it. I had all the bells and whistles, leather, moon roof, everything and it was great on the freeway. I drove it Virginia Beach Virginia to Protland Oregon to Calgary Canada and never had a problem with it. The engine is bulletproof!

My Uncle's Impala By Krista

Well, the car belongs to my uncle, but in 1958 I don't think they were as interested in "handling" so much as going fast and looking good at it. This car is all original, rides like a dream, and made... Read More

It Was My All-time Favorite Car (and I Have Had Over 30). By Statguy

Styling -- 5 stars -- especially the Impala coupe. Performance was fine, not outstanding. I had 283 V8, not a 348, so that's what one would expect. If you want a car that will turn heads and contin... Read More
