Well this is kinda sad to me, I have my car since new, My parents bought it for me when I was in high school, I knew I wanted an Impala since I saw one for the first time, I really love my car, last saturday I was driving home when the car started to hesitate and it practically couldn't move, I parked it and discovered that the engine was flooded with coolant, the car is at the dealer getting fixed, my father says that the car won't be the same, honestly I have no idea if it will, but it seems that is time to say goodbye to my old friend, I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna sell it but that's more like it.
Meanwhile I decide to sell it or not take a look at my Impala, these pics were taken early 2010 (about 15K miles ago) I will upload more recent pics of the car as soon as I get it back.

What do you guys think; should I keep it or sell it?

If it still looks like it does in the pictures...I would say keep it because that thing is immaculate!

I've just received a call from the dealer, the problem is the upper intake, there is a little crack or something like that.

I would have suspected the upper or lower intake manifold gaskets. The upper is an easy enough fix. While they're in there, it may be worth your money to have them do the lowers as well.

Actually the gaskets were perfect, the intake had a crack, all of the gaskets are being replaced.

you need to ask yourself:

is the car in clean order? (yes)
Has the car been fairly reliable?
Has the car in repairs exceeded $3-5k per year in repairs? For payments on a new car..?

If you have had a good run with the car, keep it. Its paid for, i assume.
If the car starts to run odd, due to the coolant, then I could understand needing to part with it. However, give it a few days/weeks and if the car has a problem that you are not "looking for" then toss it.

Hope this is sensible enough advice.... good luck

I think your father is on crack to be honest.

A flush out of the coolant and fix of the intake, that car still has 100k+ left on its clock. Laughing

If you do sell, give the forums first dibs Cool

Owners don't leave their impalas
Impalas don't leave their owners.

Until that thing takes a dump, its in your blood now. Keep it.
