My 2007 Impala is a company owned vehicle. It was chosen for me while I was on extended leave. How I wish I was there on car choice week!
This is without a doubt the blandest car I have ever had in my possession. I hate to admit I drive it. I try to be positive about most things in life, but this car really bothers me.
The steering problem started about 4 weeks into ownership. When I took the car to be looked at, I was told it was because I wasn't used to driving Chevrolet products. I understand that the level of steering weight varies on every car, but this was beyond acceptable. There have been times where the steering becomes completely none assisted. I have serious safety concerns about this.
Fuel consumption is quite good for a car of it's size- I tend to average 25/27mpg highway and 19/21 city.
The seats are very soft and I would prefer more support. This is a preference and therefore not a criticism.
The XM radio was working fine for the first few months, but one day after heavy rain, it has never been the same. The signal is now intermittent. I will live with it because it's almost car choice time again.
The styling seems very dated and it represents all that is wrong with the US car industry. I don't see any real thought being put into this vehicle. It is a car destined for rental companies, bulk buys for fleet and it will end life as a taxi. Do not spend your hard earned money on this car.
