    To be honest, I don't see too many Impalas going down the road. Does anyone know how many are sold thesedays?

    I Read somewhere that they are now the best selling domestic sedan, someone correct me if I am wrong, not even sure where I heard that (lol). I just bought an 06 Impala 2LT for my wife, and we love it. Anyone know of reccomended mods or upgrades? Not sure she will let me start wrenchin on it for a while...lol

    Really? I have not heard that, but I can get some information off the GM press website sometime in the near future and will pass it along.

    How you like it?

    I've also heard that the Impala is one of the best selling domestic mid-sizers on the market.

    The Impala rides really nicely, feels well-constructed to a point where it belies the fact that its platform is getting close to 20 years old.

    I've driven both the 3.5 powered versions as well as the 3.9 powered versions (work for a rental car company) and both do very well, although I'm partial to the 3.9. The Impalas are hands down my favorite cars to drive.

    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!!!

    Very strange!

    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.

    To get around town, I've been thinking of getting a mid-sized car, and the Impala has actually been on my short list. It's the right size, gets decent gas mileage, has power for the hills and mountains, and it looks pretty good.
