    2008 Chevrolet Impala Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Chevrolet Impala

    • The V8 has been tuned for quick throttle response and good low-end acceleration.

      - Cars.com
    • So-called Quiet Steel at the firewall, a soundproofing dash mat and thicker glass helps keep out unwanted noise...

    • ...flip-and-fold rear seat cushions...expose a stowage compartment large enough to hold a laptop computer or slim purse...

      - Chicago Tribune
    • Overall braking performance was very good.

      - Consumer Reports
    • Handling is surprisingly quick and sharp. This is not the wallowing, live-axle barge from the 1960s. Yet the ride is well-damped and does a good job of filtering noise, vibration and harshness.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Acceleration with the optional 3.8-liter V6 is more than adequate. But for those who want more, Chevrolet has added a supercharged Impala SS model for 2004.

    What reviewers liked least about the Chevrolet Impala

    • The Impala's noteworthy safety features -- a side airbag on the driver's side, a tire-pressure monitoring system, and anti-lock brakes -- are all optional.

      - Car and Driver
    • On mildly rough pavement, the car felt way too floaty, and the shocks bottomed out on even moderate potholes.

      - Cars.com
    • Despite large outside mirrors, it's impossible to see exactly where the back or front of the Impala ends and no rear obstacle detection system is offered.

      - MSN Autos
    • The Impala uses front-wheel drive, however, which will limit the appeal of the SS to enthusiasts.

      - New Car Test Drive

    Chevrolet Impala Comparisons

    • Overall, the Chevrolet Impala isn't as good a car as its smaller, less expensive brandmate, the Malibu.

      - Consumer Reports

    Best one-liner about the Chevrolet Impala

    • Government agencies tend to buy the Impala LS. It is a symbolic gesture to taxpayers.

      - Cars.com
    • You just know the Chevy engineers were high-fiving after they stuffed a V-8 into an Impala and fired it up.

      - Cars.com
    • ...think of Cobalt, only bigger...
