Pros

Space for a sedan is great.  Gas mileage is terrific for the size of the car.  Quiet on the road.

Cons

This trim level does leave things to be desired as far as luxury.

Family And Wallet Friendly. — We loved the cost of the car. That goes for the upfront cost and the cost for upkeep and gas. What we didn't like is the trim package. Hub caps, clothe seats, no seat warmers, things like that, but we knew that going in I guess.

Transporter — Never wanted a Chevy I am an avid Ford Fan. I am not narrow minded but have had bad experience with previous Chevys I have owned. I have owned this car for 15 months and did get an after market warranty, however I still wound up spending out of pocket for not covered repairs and deductibles to the tune of over $450.00. Its a great looking car I like the way it drives but I also liked the way my Celebrity which cost me even more over the two and a half years I owned it. That one I purchased new.

Pros

Fog lights, Automatic light turn-off when it is daytime, Remote starter, looks like a cop car at night but without the spotlight of course.

Cons

Road noise (but this is a V8 and is not meant to be a very quiet car). It's meant to have horsepower rumbling through the engine.

Overall, A Great Running Car — I like the 300+ horsepower to get up and go. It is not excellent on Gas but a V8 sucks a lot of gas no matter what kind of car you have. I just replaced all 4 tires so it will be good in the snow this year. Good tread on them.

All Around Good Vehicle For The Price — I don't like the size of the interior , especially the back seats. everyone I know, including myself has had problems with the transmission slipping. quick throttle response, quick braking, could be better in wet weather. impressive handling considering the lack of upgrades on suspension.

Pros

The car is larger (I am 6'3") so taller people fit in it easily.  There is a TON of trunk space and the seats fold down, very helpful when I needed to get a small amount of lumber and my friends with trucks weren't around.

Cons

If people don't wear their seat belt the leather in seats in the back allow them to slide around.  The fuel economy could be better, but it does shut down 4 cylinders while cruising.  I generally see 18-19 city, 24-25 hwy.

Fun And Practical — I really like this car, it has treated me well with no issues on the road (except a flat tire once). It is unique in that it is a V8 automatic FWD car, this is not very common, but makes it a decent vehicle in the winter in MN. It is fun to drive while maintaining practicality, not to mention it looks beautiful! The controls are intuitive and the blinker (tap it for 3 blinks) is something that I never thought I would care about, but I love it. Being a music lover the 6-disc MP3 CD player and Bose sound system helps out with the experience too.

Ss Impala — Wicked power, poor handling and braking. Reminds me of an old muscle car. Thats one of the cool things about it. The car is very comfortable as well, and is great for long trips. Not bad on gas either for a V8.

Pros

Great Interior! Lots of room both for yourself, your passengers, and luggage. Very comfortable and smooth ride.

Cons

Not as much gas milage as I would like.  Shorts and hot leather seats don't mix well, but tint would help tremendouly.

Great Car, Good Gas Mileage — Overall I really enjoyed this car. I'm pregnant, so a smooth ride is essential right now. That's exactly what I get out of this car. The sunroof was great for the cool weekend nights to cruise and listen to my favortie cds. Way back when, I can't tell you how many times my dad would come to school cussing because I left the lights on on my car. So for me, the automatic lights the Impala is equipped with are absolutely amazing! The gas mileage is truely the only downfall to me.

Awesomness — performance-acceleration is easy braking is great especially since we just got the breaks and rotors done build quality- it has needed repairs like a hub and bearing but i live in minnesota for jimmeny sakes appearance-interior could be darker(tan is so hard to keep clean :/ ) exterior love it but some paint chips and scratches from living in cali cost- gas mileage is great getting about 35 mpg and maintenance is great fun factor- i love the cars handling when going round curves and it has a great stock stereo system
