2008 Chevrolet Impala
There are 3 user reviews for the 50th Anniversary trim shown below
- Good gas mileage for its size, performance is well above average especially with E-85, Flex fuel
- If you dont get dual power seats the passenger seat sits in an awkward position
You really can't beat it for the price. It is a family car with a kick. Don't get me wrong it's not a race car but you won't get stuck behind that slow vehicle on a two lane road wishing you could pass. It has a very comfortable ride and the interior is very quiet. I took it on a 700 mile trip and averaged 31 mpg. In town it averages 20 mpg. I have the LT2 with the 3.5 liter, rear spoiler and sun roof, aluminum wheels and dual climate control and was able to lease it for $270 PER MONTH WITH $500. down. Good looking car and a great value I will lease another one when this lease is up....read morehide

- nice looking & performs well
- should have Bose sound system
car is nice and comfortable. Why is it so hard to find a basic LTZ model on any chevy lot? I had to settle for a sunroof which is a wasted option. The 50th anniversary seats are very nice. It is hard to find any information on what makes this car so special over the LT model. It seems that the 50th anniversary package should have been on an LTZ model. An LTZ model without a sunroof would have been a better value....read morehide

- LT1 powertrain with LTZ and SS interior options
- I want Fog lamps and an auto dim rear view.
I have this car on an overnight test drive for the fourth time. The dealer thinks I use it to take my wife out on weekends. Well, he's right! The car is assembled in Oshawa, ON, Canada. This is an award winning manufacturing facility. (I got that off the internet from one of those "biased rag writers") So, don't beleive the lies about Mexico. The vehicle I have is a 3.5L V6 with mixture of LT2, LTZ and SS options. I highly recommend the 50th anniversay version because the base vehicle is well optioned for much less than an LTZ.
The interior controls are similar to my 07 tahoe. Very nice and appearance is luxurious. The trunk is a cave, the backseats have cup holders and a folding arm rest. The folding rear seats are interesting and different. I think they will be very useful as well. With the seats folded the trunk is more than 6 feet deep. the trunk alone is 4'2" deep.
I'm not a fan of the dual climate control but I'm always too hot and the wife is always too cold so it will get used.
The headrest in the leather package is very soft and I find the leather buckets are more confortable than the 40/60 seating. Get buckets.
The eterior is gorgeous. This car is as long as my Tahoe! 16feet 8inches!!! This is a good looking ride that's HUGE for the fuel economy.
The power is great but if you want gas mileage you have to be gentle. That's OK, I use cruise and roll and have been getting 19+cty and 30hwy. Should improve after engine break in.
We will sign the papers this morning. Some of the people complaining are refering to much older models. I have owned Fords, Dodges, Chevy's, Toy's, and I've never had problems with any of them EVER. Fair wear and tear is expected, but I am very careful to take care of my cars and be good to them and they have always treated me well. If you treat your car poorly it will run poorly. I believe the positive reviews. Do you honestly think that if the tranny failed on a test drive the guy would actually get into another car? The people writing those reviews don't even write english very well. They sound distinctively foreign. So, beware of what you read. Trust me, this is a good deal, price and quality are both there....read morehide
