I named my car Rhonda because she has the attitude of a black grandma.

My car is comfortable and spacious. I can comfortably fit five people. The trunk is also big enough that moving for college was no hassle. The gas mileage is great. The only difficulties I have with it would be the fact that it shakes when accelerating up to interstate speeds due to me needing to get the tires balanced, and it sputters when going up hills. The interior has cloth seats, which works better for me and my lifestyle. It also has automatic seats and mirrors. There is dual air-conditioning that still works. My CD drive does not work, but my Bluetooth has never shown any problems. The sound system is better than what I have heard in other cars, past ones I have owned or any of my friends'. The windows will not go down unless the driver's door is closed, but there is a sunroof that is pretty cool. The engine stalls when starting and sometimes will shut itself off. However, the ignition is designed to be when you turn the key, the car automatically starts without you having to hold it. The car runs smooth down highways and backroads alike. I have drove it down gravel for most of the time that I have had it and it is done great. Quick turns are not a problem either, though I do not suggest them because they are dangerous. Brakes work great since the brake lines were just recently replaced. Great for any type of drive or if you just need to go somewhere to sit alone for a while.

Chevy Impala: Family Car with lots of room and cheap on gas.

Overall I'd say that my Impala is a great car considering it is fourteen years old. I love that it has leather seats, this is a big deal for me because I have kids so messes are easy to clean up. My impala is the color black, I've never really been a fan of black cars because they tend to be hotter in the summer than most. I love my power windows and powered seats. Mechanically the only problems I've had with this vehicle is the traction control, it just needs to be serviced. This car has plenty of trunk space and can even be accessed from the back seats for the let down for easy access. My impala currently only has 171,000 miles which I think is great considering the age of the car. I'd have to say that this car has one of the best air conditioning systems although the heat does not work. This car also gets pretty good gas mileage as well, around 24 mpg. This car also tells you the outside temp, how many miles per gallon till empty and also how many average miles per gallon you are getting. My kids and I also like that this car has a moonroof. It also still has the factory radio, works great too. Overall I'd say this car is very reliable and has been great for my kids and I.

2005 Chevy impala a great family vehicle or a great traveling vehicle.

I have a 2005 Chevy impala and I absolutely love it. I haven't had any issues with my vehicle since I got it. The previous owner did routine maintenance on it and I have continued to do so as it is new owner. It performs excellent and it is the perfect car for a small family. It does not have heated seats or anything fancy, but I am not really about luxury vehicles. The only time it goes to a garage is to be inspected. It is great in the winter. It is definitely a spacious car, it has six seats, and a very spacious trunk. I would recommend this vehicle for anyone with a small family looking for a spacious vehicle and a good vehicle to travel in. It is great on gas and does very well with long distance trips.
