My car has great gas mileage.

My impala has great gas mileage. It is very classy looking and very roomy. I love taking it for long trips because it's so roomy and just runs fantastic. I have had this car for over a year and have not had any problems with it. Besides needing tires and oil change. I know that in the future I will purchase another impala. I would love to have the Chevy impala ss. It is a fast and very sharp looking car. I also love the OnStar and the easy reach to my controls on my steering wheel. There's more better car than a Chevy impala.

Very comfortable and reliable!

Very low-maintenance, the only true problem I have has with it is in regards to the locking mechanisms on the front passenger door�the lock does not move upon clicking the bottom either on the key fob or within the car itself, so I have to reach over manually to unlock it when someone is in the car with me. This is quite costly to fix. In terms of comfort, I love it. The seats are very comfy and the car is spacious (including for someone who is tall, like me). Of course, I like the auxiliary cord feature, as well!

- Kate M

Great car... But reliable for how long?

Comfortable to travel in and quiet. I find the features are accessible and easy to find while driving, and I love being able to control my stereo from the steering wheel. The only trouble I have had is some sort of electrical failure in the wiring harness affecting both the rear defroster (burnt out - fixed with a bypass) and the airbag service light, which is constantly on once the car warms up. They are having trouble diagnosing the cause, which has cost me a lot of money for nothing.
