Yeah I love my 2008 Silver LTZ.
I don't really miss the SS as I feel its the same car as I have all the same options on this car with the exception of 6 disc CD changer, but now I have zune player. I di dread however that they kill off the impala and come back with the Caprice. Not sure I like that idea as I love my Impalas but that is few yrs away. So well see what happens only time will tell.

Red Jewel Tintcoat stays for 2010 and is available on LT and LTZ models.
The colors dropped for 2010 are:
White exterior color
Dark Silver Metallic exterior color
Mocha Bronze Metallic exterior color
Slate Metallic exterior color
The colors added are:
Summit White exterior color
Cyber Gray Metallic exterior color
Aqua Blue Metallic exterior color
The LT is still available with the Luxury Edition Package (leather, Bose with 8 speakers, rear spoiler, heated seats, etc.), however there are no more 3.9L LT models. The 17" wheels are gone, too.
My '06 2LT has been a fair car. It has 41,000 miles on it, and has needed the ISS replaced, water pump replaced, high pressure power steering hose replaced, and has several squeaks/rattles/groans.
I have thought about trying to find an '09 SS leftover, but not sure I want another Impala based on my experience with my '06.

Thanks for the feedback.I had few issues with my '06 2LT, but I only had 27000 miles on it. I haven't felt any of the ISS issues on my '09; I'm not confident that they re-engineered the shaft to eliminate the problem so it's probably just a matter of time. It was replaced on my'06 and on my wife's '07 Grand Prix. Other than that, both cars have been excellent.

Has anyone experienced this; Today went to start the 06, it cranked as usual, hit the brake and grabbed the shift lever.......nothing. The release button is solid, wont move, the shift stuck in park . This is a 3LT with 3.9 V6, Auto Trans. Mileage just out of warranty
Can't find anything in the guide about this. Any one have experience with this? Thanks

Its a shame that the effort that was put into projects like the 2010 camaro wasn't put into the impala. The impala has been mentioned more than any other vehicle in songs across many genres alone the impala could save gm from backruptcy. The brand new 2010 Buick LaCrosse is everything the impala should have been from the dynamic body styling to the superluxury interior. Normally I don't like rebadging but in this case the only thing needed is the impala symbol to complete the package.

I just got a new left over 2009 Impala LTZ and so far it has been a great car. The 3.9 liter V6 has more than adequate power, shifts very smoothly, downshifts without hesitation, and has a huge trunk. I find the sport suspension with the SS tires a pleasant surprise on this car.
I wanted a car with flex fuel capability, big trunk and folding rear seat, and at least a V6 engine. There is not much choice out there. The Impala SS does not have the flex fuel capability, and it has the stupid AFM system, which I do not care for.

We purchased the Impala new last year with 200 miles on it. Now it has 43k miles on it. It is a LS. Within the last year we have replaced the vent that changes the AC from hot to cold and back twice. 3 weeks ago we had an Allignment done and it cost $100 extra because of how it was designed and required a kit to get it right. Last week we fired her up early in the morning and when we started to drive to work she would not acellerate and hand no power. Come to find out the car was in a special mode designed to get you off the side of the road if the car had a major problem and was stuck in third. This is an automatic transmition. So we take it... under warenty... to the lockal dealer. The service guy said that the transmition was toast and had to instaul a new one. There is a week lead time to get it but my trusty 2004 GTO is taking care of me and my kids untill we get it back. As a whole we have been dissapointed with the cars low quality design and relyability. Is anyone else haveing simular issues? To bad pontiac had to die and allow that pice of crap to continue to be produced. 21k brand new and less than 2 years old we have replaced a set of tires already with only 43k miles on them because of the crappy suspention craftmanship. Am I the only one pissed off about this? I will be trading it asap.
