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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Overall a good working car for anyones needs.

Cons: It's a Chevrolet. No other cons

They Are Alright. Just Another Mass Produced Soulless Sedan. — So far so good. It's got 38k miles. New Yokohama tires and a K&N air filter are the only changes from stock. Gets 28mpg @ 80mph on open freeway. It's a typical family sedan. No frills. Cheap plastic interior with no soul. It's comfortable. Quiet.

Pros: Decent MPG, quiet, millions on the road so you blend right in.

Cons: I am sure something will go catasrophic eventually.
