Resale value is horrific. I would suggest not buying new. V6 or bust. The 4 bangers are gutless for the size of this car. Reliable? Eh. I don't know. Have not owned it long enough. But, have certainly had a few issues with ours. The worst so far was when the emergency brake would not fully disengage and was getting stuck. Happened with in the first few miles. It was bought brand new. Some of them also exhibit front end shaking. Not all do it as reported by members on here not having the issue. Its been well documented on here though. Chevrolet continues to ignore it. I have the problem myself along with others. Just crossed barely over the 15k mark. Overall. A big meh for me. If Chevrolet acknowledged and fixed the shaking problems for the front end that some people have. I might suggest it. I love the interior of this thing. Rides smooth and V6 has decent power for such a big car. If I could do it over again. This is going way off the rails. I would have got the SS. Chevrolet also cut back on the warrantys with 16+ on. 14's and 15's had the longer warranty if you cared about that. Might be able to find a new 15 still on the cheap with longer warranty.
In all honesty. Reliability as a whole. Its a bit to early to tell. If judging by the last gen. I heard those happened to be complete junkers. Then again. I really don't know how true it is. The Impala continues to have the rental car stigma attached. Even with this latest model.
