Great Sporty Gas Saver With Excellent Handling And No Road Noise — This is absolutely one of the cars that gives the most bang for your dollar. Smooth acceleration with the look that everyone loves! The interior room is superior and the acceleration is awesome. This is a very quiet interior rides I have ever been in.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great handling and smooth acceleration

Cons: I don't have 2 of them

Overall This Is A Nice Clean Luxury Whip. — I like how the LTZ model can be used as a family car and also can be customized. This model has the 3900 V-6. I think it could use a little bit better acceleration from 0-60 but other than that I couldn't ask or a better whip

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very very nice clean Chevy impala. I honestly couldn't have picked a better first car to buy. Looks just as good as it runs

Cons: Could use more leg room in the back and  the parts for it are outrageous.

Nice Commute To Work — The car is pretty good when taking off but do to its 3.5L engine it lacks the ability to take off with power and efficiency, it doesn't give that big shot of adrenaline that other cars could. I know it's a 6 cylinder car but still chevy should have added a little more to these V6 engines.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It's good looking and really loud. It drives really smooth and really good on gas milage.

Cons: It lacks HP

Love It — Over all, I love it. The only problem is that the rear passenger side warps even after the caliper has been replaced twice. Also, it has plenty of room for passengers and a huge trunk. The car also has a sleek outside.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas mileage, roomy

Cons: Rear passenger side rotor warps

A True Flagship Chevrolet. — I test drove this car in January in Chicago (Park Ridge actually), the interior was underwhelming, but power was true GM horsepower. More styling than a usual old man's car but handled like an old Buick, floated a little. But its a comfort car, not a muscle car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 3.9 V6 gives serious power, leather seats were living room comfy, Bose system with great, no real blind spots, was big without feeling like a land yacht.

Cons: Was not steady on its feet, wobbled when pushed but I guess its not a Camaro. Drank gas even with E85.

Fun — Buy it!!!!!!!!!!! Great on gas, I drove it around 465 in Indianapolis, at avg speed of 80, on less than a 4th of a tank, and drove an additional 25 miles across I-70. Gas light still hasn't came on. I just got it yesterday. Nice handling

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Has great room. I'm 6-2 280, and it fits me great

Cons: n/a

It's A Super Sport — Needs lowering shocks and springs with performance stabilizers and I think you would have a very nice package. Runs well in 91 octane and above. I had this car for one year and it hasn't been in the shop yet.

Pros: Quiet ride, Good crash test. Corvette engine. Dependable and sporty somewhat.

Cons: Loose in the rear, Needs performance stabilizers and lowering springs. Eats gas around town but, great on long trips. Needs 91 octane or better.

Love, Love, Love This Car — I owned a 2008 Impala, named Rosy. She drove wonderful, handled great and was the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. I personally would still have this vehicle if it wasn't totaled by some random driver at 2:30am while parked on the street. This vehicle never failed me and drove like a dream.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Size, handling, style

Cons: Became very common car.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: handling and power

Cons: something up with this TC/stabiliTrac issue. semi-common in 07/08 chevrolet, multiple models

Fun 2 Drive And Very Comfortable . — Just got my 08 Impala SS, and I'm loving it. The performance is excellent, the 5.3 V8 really moves this family sedan. I would have preferred a rear wheel drive V8, the front wheel drive takes some getting used to when you put the pedal down, but very fun 2 drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Cons: Idk yet...
