2009 Chevrolet Impala


PostPosted: Fri Sep 25, 2009 2:04 pm    Post subject:  Hello from Connecticut Reply with quote

Hey, Guys.

I joined about a month ago but never formally introduced myself.

A couple months ago I purchased a used 2009 LT with 32000 miles to replace my ailing 2003 Jaguar X-Type. It's been a great car so far with plenty of room for hauling the kids around. I'd say that the styling is a bit uninspired for this generation of Impala but it's quite comfortable and quick. The 3500 V6 has no problem getting out of its own way and gas mileage is fantastic for a car of this size. I'm averaging 26.8 MPG (much better than the Jag).

I've done a few interior and exterior mods in the last couple months. Check out my car in the Garage http://www.naioa.com/v2/module.....p;CID=2265

Honk and wave if you see me rolling down I84. I'll be the cloud of dust in the distance ahead of you! Wink

Just down the road in Southbury. I roll through your 'bury every day on the way to work in Bristol.

You went from a Jag to a Impala, and are pleased with the Impala, I reckon that should say alot for Impala's... and not alot for Jag's Laughing

Regardless, welcome!

It does speak a lot of the Impala. The X-Type is the entry level Jag and is much smaller and slower than the Impala.

I miss the allure of driving a Jaguar and some of the finer details in how it was appointed - more leather, real wood, etc. This winter, I'm sure I'll miss the AWD. People on the board complain about the Impala being front-driven but that's what sold it over the Crown Vic or Charger. I have to drive it in snow.

I won't miss the cost to repair. Oil pan gasket and intake manifold gasket cost me over $2000.

welcome to NAIOA!

So what part on CT are you from? I was born and partially raised in Springfield MA, just across the border.
