I traded in my 2010 Impala for a 2014 Malibu 1LT on Black Friday. The 2010 Impala never lived up to my 2004 Impala in many ways so she and i had to part. I got $1000.00 over blue book and $3000.00 in incentives plus a Ipad for trading in for the Malibu. Its the 2.5L with 27 miles on it after my 20 mile test drive and I am happy with it. The 2014 Impala to me was too pricey so I went with the Malibu 1LT at $23105 before deductions.

Curious - How did it not live up to your '04? What trim was your '04? What trim was the '10?

I'm experiencing the exact same weather-wise too.. can't even get a car wash in because it'll snow a pissy 1-2", just enough for them to hammer the roads with salt and it becomes a sloppy mess out Rolling Eyes

The 04 Impala was a LT and the 10 a LT. The 04's mpg were 19/32 the 10 was 17/28 which for the 10 is close to what it is rated yet the 04 had more get up and go.The 10's interior pick up Scratches easily on the plastic and was the killer for me because i like for my interior to stay like showroom quality. Just me nick picking but in the long run it had to go while it still had value.

Did you mean LS for the '04? Interesting about the interior. I was wondering if you had an interior styling preference. I kind of like the '00-'05 interior a little better, or at least the gauges for sure. The '06+ the gauges became boring IMO.
