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.
