Car Review: 2008 Chevrolet Impala
December 31, 2008, 06:43 PM
Bought 2 2008 Impala LT's this past November. Both were used........23k miles. Excellent Condition. Both wife and I have only one complaint and that is for a car with a cabin so spacious........very few storage areas. No drink holders in the rear. Interior cabin lights seem to be lacking. Other than that...we love both cars. I installed a K&N Airfilter on both are we are now averaging 34mpg on the hiway. In town MPG is roughly 26. Can't complain at all. We both had 2005 Malibu's. Wife had the Malibu Maxx which the MGP absolutely sucked while mine........the LS sedan was getting around 34. Both cars seemed very powerful. Even though the engines in the Impala's are the same 3.5lt v6 the Malibus have.......they are not lacking for power at all. All in the transmission.
All in all we both love our Impala's......just the ride itself compared to the Malibu is enough to make us glad we switched.
