#19 of 33 2014 Impala; Best Full Size Value Today
Sep 05, 2013 (4:53 pm)
Just purchased a 2014 Impala LTZ in blue ray with jet black interior. Pretty much loaded with the 2 LTZ, Nav, Bose, Comfort and Convenience, MSRP of $39,245. Ended up paying $37,450. Wasn't even considering the Impala but while I was looking at the Buick Lacrosse there was an Impala in the showroom. Once I sat in both and drove both, there was no contest! The Impala is larger, has a huge trunk, better interior, and better equipped for the $. The ride is super smooth, leather seats are sweet, My Link system is excellent, and the exterior design is fantastic. Traded a 2010 CTS, which I loved but I feel the Impala is a better car. This is going to be a big winner for Chevy and represents a fantastic value.

The Impala over Lacrosse? Sweet. What is it like on the open highway? Sounds like you picked a winner.

Actually it is real wood. It is manufactured using thin layers of real wood and formed in a special injection molding machine to protect the wood. Hence the gloss on the surface.

#23 of 33 LED Running Lamps & 2LT
Sep 18, 2013 (6:54 am)
I purchased a 2LT back in April with the following options - Conv. Package, Premium Audio, Prem. seating, advance safety package, and moon roof. Would have like the push start as a car at this price point should have it standard, but back in April moon roof and nav with push start were not offered together. I am fine with that as CNET gave the Nav poor reviews as it was slow and not accurate, but I use the onstar navigation and I am impressed as from when I was shopping for cars most 14 Impalas do not have Nav even the LTZ you can get without it. My thing now is I would love to have the LED running lamps added to my 2LT. Chevy has no updates on this and my dealer stated that usually after 6 months items like that should be available. My dealer was going to order them and put them on, but they advised me that a kit would make more sense and they are not sure they would work on my car as they have had no word from Chevy about this. I know the 14 Impala is awesome as I love mine and get a lot of stares in my as the 2LT loaded and 2LTZ are so similar. I think by now the novelty of the care should be wearing off as GM did state that the large car segment is low and the LT will be top selling trim. So what is the deal chevy please release the LED lamps so they can be added to other trim levels. My dealer is very busy but they mostly sell the Cruze and Equinox and Camero. So the Impala will sell I know that, but lets give customers options to add things like LED lamps to their LT or even LS they all have same body style and I am sure they could be added. Anyone here hear about this being released, this would complete my car.

GM wont give you that option I don't believe. I'm glad you like the car. I would buy one but I don't like the colors of the interiors they offer. Do you foresee any mechanical issues with this car?

After a quick 3000 mile trip last week, I have not detected a single thing that I would change. All the write-ups on the new Impala are dead on. This car is quiet comfortable and fairly economical for a car of this size. I traded in a 2011 Avalon which had not given a moments trouble in 50000 miles. I had simply grown tired of it and wanted a new car. I also wanted all the new tech stuff available today that wasn't available three years ago. Although I had been ready to buy a new Avalon, after a test drive in one the bad ride turned me and my wife off. I also was not in love with the current styling the seems to be Toyota'a thing. After the last trip I am confident that I made the right decision. This Chevy in quieter, rides better, and gets as good or better fuel economy the my old Avalon. Now if it can pass the reliability record the old Avalon racked up I will be very happy. Need I mention the size of the trunk. Seems like a cave and if 19 cu ft isn't enough you can also fold the rear seats down.

Fully loaded LTZ. 19 inch tires. Test drive lasted about 20 minutes. Wind, road, and engine noise was noticeable. Small details like exterior window trim rubbing against the door jamb made me a little Leary. The big eyesore was a large yellow bow tie on the front grill. Could not get as comfortable in the driver seat as I would have liked to. For 39 grand I expect better. This car has not experienced is first winter yet. Wonder if the Goodyear Rs tires can hold the road. Kurtis still out on this car for me.

All I can say, "You never intended to like this car from the beginning. Twenty minutes Huh! What a laugh."
One of the finest cars in this category on the road. Have had ours since May and love it!

Go back to bed. I don't need to justify my opinion to you.
