"My impala is a wonder car. I love it's style, it has a roomy and comfortable interior and a classy exterior that is open to many add on's if your an enthusiast. It is very safe and I feel confidant driving my family around in it. It gets great gas mileage I drive everyday, aprox 45 miles and can go about 8 days before needing a fill up. When I do fill up a tank costs me from 25-30$ which is great even considering that gas prices are down in the USA. Also the car is very reliable, I haven't had any mechanical problems or break downs and even after a high speed hydroplane accident, I was kept totally safe and the only damage was to the body, very good considering I slammed my front end into a guard rail then went into a 720 degree spin bouncing off the guard rail each time I spun around. The car was fixed and back as good as new within a week for just a few hundred bux. It's also a blast to drive, it's very quick with great acceleration. Compared to a ford Taurus or Chevy Malibu this car is a rocket. So overall I love my chevy impala and would suggest on to drivers looking for a fun, stylish, safe and affordable ride. Drive safe my friends! Don't drink and drive, don't text and drive and don't speed. Also be extremely careful in the rain, I was not speeding or distracted at all when my car hydroplaned on the highway while going around a very slight right bend, and once your in a hydroplane all control is lost until your are stopped by another object. So in conclusion I would highly recommend this car. God bless!"

"Bought this car from a trade in from it's original owner. Bought from a dealership, where it had just come from it's initial check-up. It still did not have a price tag on it. I took it for a 2 hr. drive to see my mechanic, and he was impressed. At time of purchase the odom. read 66,850 mi. Since the purchase Iv'e replaced both O2 sensors, lower engine gaskets (small oil leak, went overboard), inner bearings on left front tire, changed tranny fluid, brake fluid, brakes, front struts, tires & frnt. end aliment. I did all these things because I did not know the car and I do things because I believe what you put into something only makes it BETTER!"

"It has been a fantastic car and has given me great service (still has original engine) but it is time to look for a replacement. Engine runs a little loud and I don't have finances to maintain much longer although I feel I have taken good care of the car. I will definitely look at another Impala!"

"for a car being worth $1500, this thing is incredibly reliable, has plenty of power from the 3800, and is quite comfortable to drive. Can also get 27-28 MPG on the highway, and it drives like it's brand new."
