We found our car on the internet. We already knew "program" Impalas were the bargain of the decade in the family car category. These were usually owned by car rental companies for about a year. This is our third one in a row. We feel smart for getting a great price! It looks and smells new. Maroon is a beautiful color. We find metallic colors and white boring. This car is an "LT", which is the medium trim level. We had no idea we would love the sunroof so much! It gives you extra options in keeping the car temperature controlled, especially when parking it. We're old enough to miss wing windows, but this is MUCH better! We didn't realize the impact the leather seats have. They have a richness that is a joy to the senses...they smell wonderful, they have an almost imperceptible sound that pleases, and they feel great. The car drives like a dream, with the same gas mileage the smaller cars get. This is a champagne vehicle at a beer budget!
This car is super fun to drive when i dont have the baby. Its fast enough to get to a good speed when im getting on the interstate and it has a good system. When i do have the baby the carsaet installs easy with enough room for him.The trunk is big enough to put the stroller and walker in at the same time i also set a bouncer seat right in it.
We compared to cars costing much more, Japanese, European, and American. Better interior room than Taurus, a little less expensive and sportier driving than Lacrosse, comparable to Avalon but 5-10k less, couldn't find a better combination of room, quality, driving feel, and value.
