Not My Choice — I feel like I am 17 and driving my daddy's car. Not used to the leather and now that I have to buy tires, I am re-thinking my (husband's) purchase. Also, along with the super expensive high test gasoline that it sucks up.

Solid And Trustworthy. — The impala is comfortable and has a roomy layout. It is well suited for business trips and family vacations alike. Excellent in all weather conditions. Economic to maintain. Reliable Chevrolet technology. Separate zone heating, even in the base model.. Remarkably well soundproofed. Spacious trunk capacity.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good full size sedan.  Great for family travel.  Bodywork stands the test of time, even with Midwest road salt, partly due to rugged aluminum engine frame, and composite bumpers and door trim.

Cons: Minor interior weaknesses such as fragile air vents.

It Was Always A Reliable Car For Me As An Owner! — This is a very spacious car that is great for families or anyone who needs extra space. Has excellent stereo sound and quality speakers. It is easy to maintain so I have had no complaints on this one at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A very reliable chevrolet with good gas mileage and easy handling.  No high maintenance cost here.  

Cons: Though it is not a very fast car, it does the job in getting through traffice, and is much more stable in traffic than a pt cruiser or similar vehicle, so if you are looking for a BMW engine then this is not for you.

I Enjoy My Impala — I like my car. Its pretty and it doesn't drink gas. fun to drive, but feels heavy. Its wasn't expensive or anything. The car is comfy and pretty big. Its easy to park, but its beg so parallel parking can get tricky. So, its a fun car. The speedometer broke recently, and it gets finicky when I try to start it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a big car!

Cons: Its really long, so its easy to scuff the bumpers
