    that's true. For that kind of performance, those are very impressive MPG numbers, much like the new vette and other performance cars.

    Thumbs up Impala

    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.

    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.

    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.
