Big Passenger Area And Big Trunk, Good Power And Fuel Economy — Big passenger area and big trunk, good power and fuel economy - The front bench seat was so comfortable that I don't think I could get up. Pickup is very good for a 211 Horsepower 3.5L V6. As far I had heard about bad reviews on Goodyear Integrity on 16" wheels, the ride and handling did not seem too bad at all. The used vehicle from Hendrick Chevrolet / Cadillac has the tires filled with Nitrogen. I am not sure if that may have improved the tire performance from those Goodyears. It has got a trip computer, oil life monitor, remote engine starting. However no Onstar and not E85 compatible. The build quality when I test drove the vehicle was good. I don't care what people say! On the flip side without ABS, brake servicing would be easier and no expensive parts to worry about replacing. In the future, I would plan on swapping out the back seats for ones that can fold down.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: good size and decent fuel economy and available, comfy front three passenger seating  (with more open front floor space)

Cons: wish rear split folding seat, ABS/Traction Control/Stabilitrak came standard

Can Get A Great Deal On A Used Impala If You Look. — Not a perfect car, i.e. lexus, however for the money it is a value. I bought a used Impala with 20,000 miles on it. I decided to get one after observing the overall reliability of our business fleet of impalas. I am a tall man, 6 4 and this is the best room I have had . In the past, I was buying ford taurus and sable.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nice power for decent MPGs great leg room, xm satillete radio

Cons: road noise

Nah — I think this car is a damn good investment and honestly i dont have to add anything to it performance wise its a 3.5 so no matter what ill go. I thinnk this car is extremely fun to drive and is very smooth. My top reason i love to drive this car is that i get from A to B as quick or as slow as i like. My bottom line is i reccomend people buy this car because the only thing you have to do is change the oil and brakes other then that the car has very minimal issues.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its fast :)

Cons: I have to change the breaks every 10,000 miles or so

Good , Economay, Not Too Small — nice car to drive, good acceleration and road feel. repeated issues with tire pressure monitoring/reporting system, having replaced 3 valve stems, still get a message every few days to 'service tire monitor system', which fortunately ususally goes away with no action on my part. Also have replaced the front hubs and hub replacement units also which hummedwhen installed new. I drive it pretty hard, (120k miles) all over TN, car still looks good, very affordable road tool, given low up front, but should be more reliable/dependable. Good gas mileage, 24-25 combined driving. Reasonably fun to drive, best michelins(aquatreads?) make a bid difference.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: gas mileage roomy

Cons: lots of repairs,

Would Recomend To Any One With Children And/or Wants An All Around Positve Car. — The amount of throttle response to handling response it amazing. I have two children that fit comfortably in spacious rear seats. The comfort of overall ride for a car with its build is better than avaerage. I switched from a 2005 Monte Carlo SS 3.8L to this 2008 impala ss 5.3L WOW is it twice the car all the way around. The only thing that i disliked about the impala ss is the grille in front w/plates covering. I pulled my plates off and inserted a billet stainless grilee. I sell aftermarket items for all veh. I was impressed with the amount of options availible for the car, Between Style, and Performance!!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 5.3L !! , Comfort, Room, and  luxery options

Cons: grille, headlights,

Great Car Very Dependable — Performance - very good for base engine Build quality - I have had two of the new style impalas and they both have started having suspension noise around 40-50k, 1st car was tie rod end and I have not ben able to locate source of clunk in rear when going over bumps in the road, very annoying. Cost - I feel this is a great car for the money and have been very impressed with the gas mileage and average 30-33mpg in the summer months.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economical family sedan

Cons: a/c smells
