- Fuel economy not bad for size
Purchased As New
I have the Impala 3LT with leather, heated seats, duel exhaust and a 3.9 liter V-6. I've had this car for the past two years and it has treated me well. Not many problems have occurred...just the usual changing if discs, brakes, etc.
The pro's of this car is that it is for the most part a comfy and safe ride. It is a great travel and business car, because you can accomplish a great 30-32 mph on the highway and 20-24 mpg in the city if you're being easy on the gas. It has amazing trunk space with fold down seats and its pretty roomy for the driver and the passenger. The 3.9 liter boasts a decent amount of power with around 235 horses.
The con's of this car are quite a few compared to its former model, and I know because I had the previous model also. It lacks space in the rear seats because the seats are almost too big. The design and appearance of the car, although decent, lags compared to newer models and even the past Impala model. The interior is not only cheap, but looks cheap and feels cheap. The leather, if you have one with leather, is lack luster leather and cheaper quality compared to the leather seats of other cars. However, if you do choose to get an Impala model, definitly get one with leather, because the cloth material in Impala's are terrible. They will start to wear, rip and stretch around 50,000 miles.
Overall, this car is average, but I think its reliabilty is good and cheaper compared to if you were to get a foreign car. It is safe and a good family car if you have a baby or younger toddlers, and like I said I think it is a good travel and business car. I've used it for all the above....read morehide

- looks, feel, ride, excellent fuel economy for car this size, numerous std. features.
- no driver seat memory or climate control, very little leg room in back seat.
My wife and I have had this car for about 2 months. I traded in my 2006 Ford Fusion. Ford has extremely overrated that car. We love Impala's fuel mileage without compromising power. The heated leather is wonderful here in Iowa winters! The auto-start feature works really well too. We looked at Buick Lucerne to get the options Impala doesn't offer, but decided to go Impala. Chevrolet really needs to consider changing items I listed in the cons. Overall, this is a terrific car that would please most anybody!...read morehide

- good fuel economy...love the extras....nice ride.
- no significant downside
This car more than competes with Camrey and Accord. I know...I have driven both and chose the Impala. The ride is much better than the imports and the fuel economy is surprisingly good. Traveling on a long trip, I slowed down to 58 to see what I would get under the "old rules." I nailed 35 mpg for over 80 miles. It wants to run and easily moves up to 80 mph...comfort is A+. I have know way to know how well it will hold up as I put some miles on it...but after the first 3000, I think the Impala is yet another example of a vastly underrated US car....read morehide

- Good fuel, smooth , quiet, no problems
Id previously written a review. All positive. No cons.
Id stated that mileage was 22MPG in city/hwy combined but had not taken a road trip.
Well we took a road trip and achieved 32.X MPG.
2 adults. No luggage. Drove the southern california coast from Los angeles to the Vandenberg AFB area.
Using no AC, and setting the cruise to 62-64 MPG we drove- achieving 34 MPG. Once we hit Point Conception and headed into the hills, this dropped down to 32.x. the return trip was similar route.
Excelent milieage. this is the 3LT with the 3.9L engine with Active fuel management (3 cyl off, 3 on)...read morehide

- Good economy, XM Radio, Comfortable
- Not that I could find
Rented an LT3 from Alamo in LA. Drove I-10 to New Orleans then up to Chicago, then Route 66 to LA, then to San Francisco, then San Diego, up to Las Vegas and back to LA. Did 13,000+ ks (8000+ miles) in 6 weeks whilst on holiday from Australia. Found the car to be great on a trip and easy around the urban areas. After I got used to the steering wheel being on the "wrong" side I had a ball. Compares extremely well to big Australian cars (Falcon & Commodore).
Had a very near miss on the interstate between Vegas and LA and the car handled it beautifully. Brakes excellent - thankfully!...read morehide

- A fine machine. Good mileage.
- Ride is a little too firm. leather seats too hard.
My wife and I are very satisfied. She loves the car so much that I have trouble getting her to let me drive it. We traded our 2001 Buick Lesabre for this 2007 LT3 3.9L, and we're not at all disappointed. While the ride is very good, the Lesabre ride was somewhat better. My wife prefers the Chevy ride, and firm leather seats, I am satisfied with it. It handles very nicely....read morehide

- Onstar-turn by turn, looks, mileage, quietness,
- None so far-
The Impala is great. So far were getting the mileage we expected for city. 22MPG with the city driving we do. (We have not taken a long road trip to accurately calculate highway travel- with AFM- the 6cyl-3 cyl feature)The trunk holds the materials we need for work and room to spare. Power is great. The ride is VERY quiet. There are no squeeks or rattles coming from anywhere. Everything feels solid. The interior look of the car is excellent. The dash and buttons have a very conservative look to it. (meaning theres no space rocket looking knobs etc) or displays like other cars on the market. Engine is quiet, steering is firm and feels solid- no wobble. Transmission shifts on time and shows no signs of delays. So far no uneven tire wear. Our trim is the 3LT, with the 3.9L engine, dual exhaust, fog lamps, Auto Fuel management that turns off 3 of the cylinders under light load, engine remote start, Onstar (we upgraded to turn by turn directions feature- well worth it), air tire pressure monitors, hands free calling, and the EXCELLENT feature available for the 3LT and LTZ- are the rear seats that fold forward and have a storage compartment under them...
So far an excellent vehicle....read morehide

- plenty of power when needed
- flickering headlights
Beware, the 3.9 has a flickering headlight and dashlight problem and GM will give you the run a around and tell you it is normal. However service reps will telll you, if they are honest, GM has no clue why the headlights flicker and don't seem to care since it is not a safety issue. Don't expect them, to fix it because GM has told the dealers not to replace anything....read morehide
