New Impala Owner

Greetings, well just purchased my first Impala, 2016 LS with 39K on it yesterday. I am still in the learning phase of all the electronics, getting seat set right etc. I have 7 days to like or return (Car Max, yes it was a rental). The only thing I noticed was road noise was a little louder than what I expected and noticed right tire was about 5lpsi less than the rest, which I will check out today since did not have time after driving thru Seattle-Tacoma traffic for 90 minutes. Hopefully with attention to maintenance and care I can squeeze out year of enjoyment.

I have done most of my own maintenance on my cars including my last which I traded in yesterday. Got $100 for my 2000 Malibu with over 292,000 miles, rusted rear frame rails, and a dash that looked like a Christmas tree! LOL

Looking forward to keeping up on the latest information and advice in the upcoming years!
