Why the 2008 Chevrolet Impala?

Price or payments

Bought the vehicle used in Sept2009 on a 2008 model for $15,000. Price seemed great in comparison to what the asking price was in other places for a lesser model (LT). Dealer had put a set of OEM Goodyears on it, and did a good job with detailing it.

Past personal experience

Solid feel, good safety features, handles well, decent fuel economy.

Exterior styling

Just one of those designs that grabbed me. The 18" LTZ wheels look better than the SS wheels, IMO.

Feature availability

Love the XM radio and the Bose stereo. Heated seats are nice in the winter, while the car is warming up.

Safety & braking

Like the safety that a full-size car generally affords. Brakes stop well.

Why Not the 2008 Chevrolet Impala?

Materials & workmanship

Too much plastic in the interior - doors and dash.

Reliability & durability

Thus far, have had problems with the gas cap (the P0455 fault), the speakers rattle, two of the four power door locks have failed, and the gas gauge has gone on the fritz.
