Watch the speedometer unless you want to get pulled over. It easily goes from zero to seventy-five with little effort. If you're not used to the car, you could find yourself driving 110 in a 75 zone on the interstate and not notice... unless there are other vehicles around, then you'd wonder why they were all driving so slow because you're passing all of them!

I purchased my vehicle used. It was 6 years old at the time and I've had it now for 6 years as well. It's been missing the visor on the drivers side, which is annoying, but I never thing to replace. The passenger back window doesn't roll down anymore, but I want to fix the tiny oil and coolant leaks before that. Also, the air conditioner has never worked. It's the 3.9 liter engine, so I'm spoiled. Every time I drive another vehicle (i.e. designated driver, when my car is at mechanics) I wonder what's wrong with it and why it accelerates so slowly, and then I remember! Dislikes would be Lithia Motors out of California keeps sending me letters trying to purchase it from me, and also, there's been an ignition recall for 4 years that I can never figure out who to contact to get it fixed.

I love this car!! It is absolutely amazing and would totally buy it again.

My 2006 Chevy impala, is amazing. It gets great gas mileage, and has a very smooth ride. It is only a two wheel drive so it handles decently in snow and ice. There is a large trunk space. Seats four comfortably and five cramped. I haven't found anything I don't like about it yet. I am the second owner and it is in amazing shape. All electric windows, locks, and drivers seat. Ample leg room in both the front and back seats. The break is a little touchy and the gas is a comfortable press. You can hook up XM radio and it comes with an aux input. It comes with AM, FM, and a CD player. I would recommend getting a block heater if you live somewhere cold, also getting auto start has saved my life. It only comes with the standard two sets of keys, but I invested in a third.

Great and easy car to maintain.

First of all, my 2006 Chevrolet Impala ltz is a great car. It is plenty of room and plenty of trunk space. Secondly, it comes with a spare tire and jack in the trunk compartment. This car runs very smooth and is relatively good on gas as well. The parts for this car are not expensive and some maintenance can be easily done by anyone with the right tools and knowledge of the car. The only flaw that I personally have with this particular car is that it is a full size car, meaning that it is a little longer than an average car. Other than that, this is a really great car and I would recommend this to anyone that is thinking or looking into buying one of these rides.
