Buy One If You Can Afford One And Need A Car You Can Depend On. Period. — I love this car. Given I've only added 13,000 miles to the 23,000 it had when i bought it, it's performance has been nothing short of awesome. It's taken my family and I on 1 vacation, as well as several short trips(3-4 hour drives). I love the features. It performs well on dry and icy roads. It has a lot of space. It looks very classy. I almost forgot, it gets 32mpg on the freeway.

A Pleasure To Drive And Own — This car is the best car I have owned yet. Ten times better than my former 2005 Ford Taurus I traded in. Comfort and class in a great looking and riding automobile. If you don't own one you should drive and buy one you'll love it.

Sharp Appearance, Great Features, And Excellent Ride. — Great features and ride for the price. It has power with a sporty appearance. Doesn't look like a Grandma car but driven by one. It's fun to drive - and being Victory Red, it's not easily missed.

Thumbs Up — Over all the quality of the car is great,It handles like a new car should very tight, acceleration could be better but its just about right if not above average for the engine/car size ratio. The price was very fair with the options added, Gas is great way better than the previous v8 i had. Fun car to drive, fits enough friends inside for a session.

I Really Wanted It To Work Out... — I purchased my 2009 Impala SS in 2010, after 11 years of owning my beloved '98 Malibu. It was great looking, roomy, had all of the bells and whistles, and had a V8 engine with cylinder shut off for fuel efficiency. Unfortunately, right after I hit 36,000 miles and my warranty expired a sensor went out on it and required the entire engine to be lifted out of the car. A fluke right? Got it repaired, drove it for a couple of weeks and guess what, one morning I go to start the car and nothing. Another sensor out, another removal of the engine and another couple hundred dollars gone. Before it could go any further, I decided to get rid of this vehicle, not sure if I got a lemon, but it just seemed too convenient that there were no problems until 36,201 miles. Also, this car should have been rear wheel drive, the front wheel drive does not do the V8 engine any justice.

Interior design, handling, safety and Bluetooth connectivity.

OnStar Turn by Turn nice, but a navigation screen would be more useful and more cost efficient.

Great Car At A Great Price For Families Looking For A Useful Sedan With Luxury And Sport Manners. — This is my fourth Impala and by far the best. I was happy with the 2000, impressed with the 2005 LS, satisfied with 2008 LS but totally impressed with my new 2009 LTZ! Performance: Acceleration of the 3.9 V6 is more than adequate for highway travel and passing. Braking is true and straight and the FE3 suspension while firmer than the FE1 ride is still very nicely mannered and matched well to the V6 powerplant. The build quality gets better all the time. While not as nice as Lexus or Cadillac the interior materials are very nice for a car of this price point (much nicer than Toyota Camry or Chrysler 300). With 6 airbags, ABS and traction control, stability control this car is as safe as it gets, and it sports a 5 star crash protection rating. The appearance, interior and exterior are pleasing and very modern. The car is pleasing to the eye yet has enough stlye so as not to get lost when compaired to cookie cutter Japanese compeditors. The sportiness and luxury mix of the LTZ is great. The flip and fold rear seating is unique to the Imapa in the full size class. Bluetooth connectivity and stability control two reasons we purchased this car. Fuel economy of this vehincle is great for the class, almost all the miles on this car are interstate miles averaging 31 MPG using E-10 fuel and 27 MPG using E-85. This is a very nice, contemporary American Family car that is sporty and fun to drive. It has ample room for a family of four adults and their gear for weekend trips.

I Love My 2009 Chevrolet Impala — Since I purchased my 2009 Chevrolet Impala, no problems at all. The performance is better than I expected. Great acceleration on demand, and for a big car braking and overall handling is excellent. I would have to say the quality is superior to many and no rattle, squeeks or creaks at all. I paid a little more but in return will be happy to drive my impala till 2019. This car is a blast and fuel economy is about 25mpg's average.

Pros

Basic reliable car.  Nothing extra special about it but good full size sedan, smooth enough ride, handling is tight, decent on gas with enough space to fit company.

Cons

Nothing special about it.  Nothing that stands out.

Basic Reliable Car — I bought one and added a lot to it (rims, AM/FM Satelite, DVD, GPS, IPOD, compatible touch screen deck, tinted the windows, added sub-woofers). Spent a lot of money to kind of bring it up. Next car I get will be ready made with all the trims bells and whistles. If you are looking for something basic, this is a very good car, reliable, mine is a 09 and I've had it since then, only had to get a few minor repairs (glitches with the computer, and other minor things). I would recommend it if you just want to get from point A to point B in a good car that will hold up for a while.

Overall Excellent Vehicle For Size And Gas Mileage — The Chevy Impala LT has plenty of room for passengers as well as ample trunk space for a large amount of luggage. Offers a great ride with tremendous gas mileage for a large sedan. Very dependable and low maintenance cost.

Family Car — I love the electronic display on the dash. It can tell me my tires individual psi, what % my oil proficency is at how many miles i have in the tank, my avrg economy and much more. There is lots of space inside the car and the trunk is huge. My favoret part is the amazing AC but thats probably just because my Subaru's AC went out.
