I bought a new 2000 model when they first re-designed them. My wife really liked it. Ran great and got good mileage! They have changed them again, but not drastically.
Get the 8/6 option for the engine. lots of pep and 33 mpg on a trip in florida..
Just had my Wifes 07 Impala in for service...13,000 miles and the fuel sending sensor went bad. She ran out of gas twice with the needle reading 1/4 fuel left!!!
After I bought my '05 Silverado, My wife decided she was tired of driving a rusty '93 Jimmy so we went out and found an '06 Impala LT [3.5] w/ only 24K on it for a good price...she loves it!
We looked at a 2008 Impala but once we saw the 2008 Malibu we were sold.
My wife loves her Malibu. And it gets 27.5mpg in the city and 33 on the highway.:gasp:
the malibu is a hot looking ride for sure, i was looking at a used caddy for my kid, when my wife announced were not caddy people,
what do caddy people look like?????????????????????????
we decided against the malibu for the fact that the blind spots are so bad, went with a 09 impala LT and love it so far
Bought an 09 Impala SS about a year ago, fantastic car. It does'nt play well with others however. Feels like a predator.
