Consider A Chevrolet Impala

2014 (but same body style of the 2013 model year) Chevrolet Impala LS Fleet 6 cyl sedan with 14k at time of purchase in June 2015. Purchased as a spare/extra family car. Although basic transportation it does have some basic creature comforts; OnStar, power driver seat, PW,PB, CC, PW, AC, power trunk release (including a logically located driver-side interior manual trunk release), intermittent wipers, rear window defroster, basic AM/FM radio, tire pressure monitors, DIC read-outs for MPG, Average miles travelled etc. and a very large trunk with light. (Oddly, there is no light in glovebox which would have been helpful.). This car has been driven solely city driving with 22/23 MPG which is not bad for such a large car by today's standards. Ride is smooth, comfortable, quiet, solid. Car is responsive and moves when there is a need. Traditional "feel" steering which coincides with the traditional solid feel of the ride. So far no mechanical problems and it has been reliable. The interior is very basic with moderately comfortable cloth seats--nothing fancy yet pleasant The dash layout is logical and the controls are user friendly and within easy reach. Gear readout is on the dash--none on the console gear shifter. Exterior styling is pleasant but not head-turning but then reliability and dependability has its advantages if you are looking for good transportation without the need to make a fashion statement. I would recommend to anyone looking for a basic, dependable pre-owned family size car to consider the Chevrolet Impala. The price point is very reasonable for what you get. Once test-driven you may be pleasantly surprised as I was.

In my search for a nearly new sedan the 2013 Impala was the winner! During my search I checked out several 2013 GM sedansalong with a couple foreign cars. Buicks were nice and Caddys were both $pendy. The Impala was the best value at $16k. Solid car inside and out and the v-6 has plenty of power and gets almost 30 mpg hiway. The camry and hondas I looked at ran and drove like tin cans and their buzzy 4 cyl. engines were quite noisy. Not to mention they were almost $4000 MORE than the Impala. You can't miss buying a Impala for your next family sedan.

I just bought the Impala. I am very happy about the V6 engine, and the very nice drive and handling it has. The 6 speed on the floor allows for easy movement. The one small criticism is the vision through the windows and mirrors. There are a couple of blind spots where you have to turn to check for movement. The interior is simple yet practical . There are some interior features that I think are great, especially the back folding seats for carrying extra cargo. The trim is beautiful both interior and exterior. It is sleek, and eye candy to all who see it. It is American made which I like, and just an overall good buy. I couldn't be happier, and plan to keep it for many years to come.

I bought mine during the 2013 closeout sale, and got a nice $4000 rebate. Other reviewers complain that this is a dull rental car. While it is true that the 2014 Impala is a nicer car, I would have spent about $8,000 more had I bought a comparably equipped 2014. What do I like about this car? The power train! The 300 HP V6 paired with the 6 speed automatic is a pleasure to drive. We took it on a road trip, through the Colorado mountains and we averaged just over 30 mpg. I found the handling to be satisfying. Are there sportier handling cars with nicer interiors? The answer of course, is yes, but you will pay much more for them. But for my daily commute I find the Impala to be comfortable, quiet and with buckets of power wen you need it. The standard stereo on the LT trim model could use some more punch, but otherwise it was satisfactory. So in a nutshell I got a 300 HP large sedan for the price of a well equipped four cylinder compact car.

I am a 19 year old college student. Even though it may be seen as an old man car and not very sporty, it is great on the interstate and the huge trunk is great for hauling around my stuff. I also have back problems and it is super comfortable in the Impala, and there is plenty of room for five adult passengers. It does have a bit of turning radius so if you're not good at parking/handling, it will be a little frustrating. Overall, it is a great car and a great value as these Impalas usually have low resale values with the new generation available.

Bought this car from a Chevy dealer, it was a GM rep vehicle, only had 9k on the odometer, leather seats looked new. I know these cars are used a lot as police cars & rentals, but I love this car, as much or more than the maybe 20 cars I've owned in the past. This is an LTZ, very responsive (but expensive) tires. The V6 has more than enough power & the fuel economy is good for a larger car (averaging 23.8, mixed driving). Not a particularly handsome car, but I like the looks. Just turned 3 years old & not one issue.

I have a 2006 and just bought a 2013. You wouldn't know I have a knew car. Same color and body style. My 06 got me 173K miles with know trouble. Thought it would be crazy to buy something different. Very happy and satisfied with my purchase. I didn't rate it as a 5 only because I don't think anything is perfect. I highly recommend an Impala to anyone that is thinking functionally and just not want to impress the neighbors. However, design is very stylish in my opinion. But you know what they say about opinions. Anyway, Merry Christmas to all.
