Only a senile fool would consider buying such a dated car as the Impala.

I wouldn't buy an Impala if it had $15k on the hood.

And since when was a Dodge Ram aerodynamic?

No matter what you choose to drive, this is a great time to buy a new car or truck.

We bought a new car for my daughter last month for her HS graduation and college commute, and we bought her an Impala.

The price with all the options was under $20K but tax, title and registration brought it up to under $21K. That's the price of most compacts and subcompacts!

That's really hard to beat for a car that size, with a V6 and all the amenities.

If you need a car now, this is a great time to buy.

The 200 is a great deal if you at least buy the V6 pentastar, you can get every option for like $18,000
