    Default New 2014 Impala.

    GM is redesigning many of their products for the 2014 models including our fullsize trucks built here at Ft. Wayne Assembly. I have always liked a fullsize sedan for traveling like the DTS Caddy. The wife drove one before getting her Buick SUV. The current Impala falls short of being a true fullsize sedan IMO. This is one of the best facelifts GM has done in a long time. Reminds me of the 94 to 96 Impala SS's that was built at Arlington Assembly. I love the larger size and the body lines.

    Thanks for the link...I read about the redesign in a magazine a few months back but it didn't illustrate it. Love the looks of the new model. I owned a '86 Olds 98 then a '92 98 then an '04 Lesabre that I kept looking factory new. Have always enjoyed full size cars the rear drive 98 I owned was my favorite of them all.

    I didn't plan to do much of anything today, but by noon I was almost half done.

    Very nice!
    His bad is it that going from a 300HP V6 to a 200HP 4 cylinder only saves you 3 mpg. (28 vs 31 mpg hwy)

    I'd take overpriced stock as a form of payment, at least it's something of value. It certainly beats getting stiffed by a company claiming billions in profit...
    I'd have a LOT more profit in my pocket too if I didn't pay back any loans.

    sorry but no GM products for me any more bought my 2006 silverado LTIII and put to many repairs into this truck for having 60,000 mile on it

    front wheel bearing @ 32,000 water pump @ 35,000 font caliper @ 50,000 uses front rotors every year no mater if i install good usa made or import ones back sides delaminate.

    even had the e-brake release cable break have to buy the hole handle not just the cable and i don't use this truck hard at all. plus its not worth anything on a trade in,

    had ford ,dodge and Nissan worked them 10 x harder and never put that much into any previous truck

    Yes...I have a brother in law who is in shift production management at the Lansing plant where GM build Caddies...the employees there are very excited about their plant being chosen to build the Camaro. It is wonderful to see more jobs being created locally.
