The Impala SS would be my American sedan of choice. Why?
Well, mainly because of its 303 horsepower V-8! This car can
really get up an go!!! It's the least expensive large 4-door sedan
that can do a sub-6-second 0-60. It's not bad looking either. ;-)

As far as reliability and economy is concerned... The gas mile-
age is actually quite good for a powerful V-8 with the high 20's
on the highway. The reliability, well... At least you have a good
manufacturer's warranty. Actually, the warranty will probably be
about average. Just break it in properly in the first 500 miles and
do all of the recommended servicing -especially the oil changes,
and you should be in pretty good shape.

Probably a nice car if it didn't have FOUR doors. Never owned a 4 door car in my life and never will. IMHO...only family guys and geeks drive cars with 4 doors.

You will look long and hard and still not find a better car in its price range. Excellent and very reliable automobile bar none.

the impala is actually a very strong, tough car. american cars have improved dramatically over the last few years, ESPECIALLY GM vehicles. I would recommend buying one, they are very long lasting too. my grandparents have an '05 with 150,000 miles and they haven't had a problem. (yes they travel a lot, they're retired.) theirs is an SS with the 5.3 liter v8 and it gets 22 mpg.
