I'm the original poster.
Stop with the Toyota crap. I don't care to hear it. I owned a Rav 4 before I owned the Durango listed, and it was no better in reliability. I lost a timing chain at 52,000 miles in it, and always had a problem with the gauge cluster.
I bought the Impala because I wanted it.
I had a 2003 Durango review on here with close to 300000 miles; a fleet maintained company car.
The engine used 1 quart of oil every 5000 miles when it was changed. And that was often. Same engine, and had 1 trans replaced.
I know a guy with a 98 Corvette with 189000 miles on it with only routine maintenance; fluids, tires, serpentine belt and idler arms. The LS engines are available in other GM models as well.
How about the new Cadillac with the 6 speed manual for 60k. Great car for the money, with incredible hp and performance.
I also like the Impala SS.
What exact year and model do you own? You neglected to mention that in your broad based sweep of a brush.
Yeah, HA HA HA, the Government STILL owns 26.5% of GM. But the government NEVER creates negative propaganda about those they oppose, now do they? HA!
So you are the original poster... the one with the lousy running brand new Chevy, and you don't want to hear about Toyota's anymore? Are you having seller's remorse? I'm sorry you had bad luck with your Toyota. Seems you just have bad luck period with cars though, doesn't it?
Maybe you should try Honda next?
Yeah, and the government could own 100% of GM and I will continue to buy them.
17:15 sure likes to be amused. I buy on quality, features, styling and benefits, not percentages. Do you test drive vehicles and buy, or do you discuss percentages of corporations?
What's it to you if the guy likes his Impala? Ever hear of the millions of new cars that Toyota had to recall because they don't know how to design an accelerator???
Drive your boring Japanese "me too mobiles" and leave decent Americans alone who are still proud to drive a domestic car.
And please don't bother writing on here how your Camry was built here in the US. I have heard it all a hundred times before, and could care less.
I drive a '99 Tercel during the winter months. Boring but reliable. The old power-train quality is probably superior to their new stuff...
So many variables, who knows what they sell us at the pumps. Go with the highest octane available, and hope that's what they are selling you. If it is, you will pay more, but get better mileage and performance all around. Then take that car out and punish it, by putting your foot to the floor for a good run down the freeway for about 5 miles, and watch the black smoke you leave behind when your foot is pinned to the floor. CLEAN IT OUT MAN...
