    Overall A Good, Economical Choice For A Sedan — If I HAD to choose between a Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor and the Chevy Impala Police Package, the Crown Vic wins hands down. Then again, the CV is nearly 8K to 10K more when new, and it shows. The 9C1 Impala is a smaller more nimble car, beefed up to take on the rugged duty of police work. It has a sleek design, and an easily maintained, cost-effective 3.9L V6. The car has a very light feel, making it a joy to cruise around in. I love the police package, the beefier suspension and skid plate, and the heavy duty cooling system, wheels, brakes and transmission brings a lot of peace of mind when driving on rougher roads or in a defensive-driving situation. I think the Impalas have found a perfect niche, priced like a smaller mid-sized sedan but nearly as accommodating as a full-sized sedan. The Impala line is a workhorse platform that still looks good going down the road. There are a lot of forums dedicated to the Impala so as an owner, it means you're in good company and have a great resource to turn to when working on one.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Like any mature Chevy model, the Impala has got (almost) all the bugs worked out. Maintenance is easy, and cost-effective. In terms of styling, it sits somewhere between a Ford Crown Vic and the Dodge Charger. It's designed to be a cheap sedan, to compete against larger full-sized sedans.

    Cons: It's priced like a mid-sized compact but it's tries to be a full-sized sedan. It doesn't quite get there. With the Impala Chevy makes a number of engineering shortcuts that can be a little frustrating - especially with fasteners found throughout the car.

    Family Sedan — The Chevy Impala LTZ is Reliable car, well it does not have the performance of a high priced car it does have nice touches. I look forward to the next impala that Chevy makes as long as they do not forget to keep making comfortable reliable cars.

    Pros: Quality, Reliable car

    Cons: For size of car leg room is not the best.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    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.

    Nice Car For The Money — Overall a very nice car. Very good fuel mileage, roomy, comfortable, rides and handles well. Maintenance cost are low. Operating cost are low. Wished it had Sirius Radio, and OnStar. This car would be a welcomed addition to any household.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Handles well, gets good fuel mileage, roomy, low maintenance, looks good

    Cons: Doesn't have OnStar or Sirius.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Comfortable, nicely appointed

    Cons: Unreliable, costly repairs, front wheel drive.

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Lot of space for driver and any passengers, great for family. Has

    Cons: Oil filter is impossible to get to, I have to take it to a shop to have oil changed

    Total Dependability — Have had no issues with the vehicle whatsoever. I average about 27 mpg (about 75% of this is backroads/city) and only put about 15,000 miles a year on it. I would say that if you have small children in car seats this car is feasable but don't expect to be able to fit a 3rd person in the back seat. The most useful feature by far has been the trunk space! You can easily fit a weekends worth of stuff for the whole fam in there:)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Very Reliable all around. Have had it for 3 years and have only had to change the oil, change the brakes once and the tires once.

    Cons: Can't think of any

    Great Car At Possibly Great Prices — Great car. If you look for them at Chevy Dealerships in the used section, you can find great priced examples that are in great condition because the were rental car agency fleet cars. I have very few complaints with the car, and have never been in a situation where it hasn't performed to the best of its ability. Great mpg: 32 hwy, 30 interstate, 26 city. The engine has power when you need it, maybe a bit too much for the front tires to handle if you aren't being cautious. Overall, it is a great car that I would recommend.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The price of the car was about 18k when it was done, for that price, leather interior, sunroof, heated seats, and v6 engine is great.

    Cons: The trunk opening isn't large enough and the rear seats don't fold completely flat. Also, 1/2 of the cup holders in the car aren't deep enough to hold any cup well, and there are only 4 cup holders.
