Default looking at a 2012 Impala

I am looking into buying a new 2012 Impala,I have a 2007 Impala and want to upgrade.I have looked and seem to like the LTZ package than the base package.I did get a price with trade in for my 2007 Impala and price without trade in.Also did get brochure on the Impala and I am impressed.I was looking at used 2010s and 2011s and was told I was better off buying new.I do have a buyer for my 2007 Impala also,my friend Becca'* husband Gary and he is heavily interested in when I decide to buy.I have test drove one if you want to know,love the ride and the way it drives.The one I test drove has the LTZ package with the 3.6L with direct fuel injection.Any opinions I will take.

i haven't seen real-world fuel economy tests yet, but the 3.6 delivers more power and higher fuel economy on the EPA test cycles than the 3.5 and 3.9 cars did, so it'* can't really be a downgrade of any kind.

and yes, the LTZ package is nice.

you cant find deals on new like you can if you get a year or two old. last 2 or three cars i got 30-40% off of new price a couple years old or newer and had 75% of factory warranty left so if anything is not like new they still have to fix it.

I did get the new one,sign papers and pay for it tommorrow.Sat down discussing price,$24,900.00 plus title transfer off of my 2007 Impala and a Documentation fee state of Michigan puts on.Last time I knew,it was getting ready to get prepped after it was taken off the lot.I did sell my 2007 Impala just now to my friend Becca'* husband and he likes it.Knows I took very good care of it and was not abused
