Does the Impala need a four-cylinder?
Give me Gitchee Gumee
We cover more miles in three days than most owners will in a month.
Any way to get a printout of the complete 5 lake tour?
'Yet the execution reminds you that this car has been built to a price. The cut-and-sewn leather is neither cut nor even leather in most places, while the reasonably attractive simulated wood clashes with seemingly random swatches of grey plastic. The dashboard panels also come together somewhat haphazardly. Yes, we must admit that this car does not have the exquisite detailing that you find in a $100,000 sedan from Germany or England. (Should we be shocked?)'
Therein lies the annoying rub that comes from these writers who try to impress and influence a certain mindset when it comes to American Iron. In this day and age how can one think that GM, Ford and Chrysler somehow can't or don't know how to build a quality car? It's all about perception.
And why mention $100,000 German Sedan!!!!??? That is such an abstract - it's akin to reviewing a Hyundai Elantra and mentioning how it doesn't stack up well to a Mercedes C Class or Audi A4.
If this Impala had been appropriately compared to an Avalon or Hyundai Azera then the gripe wouldn't be valid.
Dull car. Dull name. Dull interior. Dull, but not quite so, exterior. Probably
I'm just not a Chevy fan, except the new Corvette!
Kings Road is actually Kings Highway. Anyway, it was a great road to exercise a great handling car. I made the mistake of driving my new '63 Buick LeSabre convertible on this road-- with a bunch of young girls/women. With each curve I drove faster and faster... until the final curve, at which time I was probably going way, way too fast to make it. So I decided the best thing was to just go straight... into a grove of trees. Trees flew by the car and I was scared as hell, as you can imagine. But I managed to stop the Buick about 3 feet from a big tree. That might have been my last crazy car drive. Yes, there were plenty of them ibefore this stupidity, but nobody ever got hurt. I guess in some areas of life I have been very lucky.
