Very reliable vehicle, the only downside is just a bit cramped in the backseat.

The vehicle performs well, it's a good vehicle to go to and from work. The only downsides are that it's very cramped in the back not enough leg room and a bit claustrophobic. Despite the backseat situation, the front is very comfortable to sit in. However there is difficulty seeing the back when reversing out of a parking space, it is very hard to see. It only has air vents in the front so it's a bit hot in the back seats. Trunk space is very good, can accommodate a large walker and is good for groceries. Only downside is the trunk slams very loudly when closing and it takes a bit of strength to pull down. Ultimately the vehicle is very reliable, we've been on long car trips to San Antonio and it has handed the journeys well.

Chevy impala: the car for all of America.

Overall a great car for winter terrain. About as good on ice and snow as you can get with a front wheel drive. It has great breaks that help when you are slipping and a traction alert for when you are on icy roads. Affordable and comfortable. Very spacious but still not a boat. The trunk is very deep which is nice for storing all emergency winter gear. It does start rough, takes about a minute or two in warm weather to idle smoothly, longer if the engine is cold but that's to be expected. My biggest problem is that none of the cigarette lighter plug ins actually give out a charge to charge your phone by.

I like heated seats. & u can crank it from inside & its warm when I get in!

I love my Chevy impala! It has heated seat, all leather. It has a very big trunk. It came with weathertech floor mats in front & back. It tells u when u need an oil change, the tire pressure in each tire, it has Bluetooth & satellite radio & a CD player that you can control the volume & change the song from the steering wheel. It is a very comfortable riding car. Very good gas mileage on highway & in town. The only thing I wished mine had is a sun roof. It is a very nice car & would tell anybody that they should buy an impala!
