*choking* for the sake of the moderators, I will refrain from saying anything but: NOT

I would get an Impala probably. Had one as a rental car once and they were pretty nice. Either that or a new Nissan...the only non-gm car i have so far considered to consider buying :P

I liked the 2003 Impala too...we test drove it when searching for a new car last year. The problem for me is that the interior seriously lacked in anything resembling style, and felt "old lady" to us. The exterior is pretty classy though, and a little edgy...and it does move pretty well too for an "old lady" car (as long as it'* the V8 ).

I will now correct myself...3800, no V8.

And don't get the idea that it moves anything like a Bonneville!

Sorry, got bad info from a website that wasn't being very careful...I will stick to the official sites from now on.

Old lady car? I think it was anything but...the one I had was a 2002 LS with the 3800, and beige interior. I normally perfer dark interiors, but it was sharp. Felt classy for the price of it, and roomy inside too. Don't like cars where your elbow is resting against the door.It felt really sluggish compared to Hollywood though...guess that'* cuz Wood has some added insentive...

Boo was going to get the Cadillac STS if he didn't listen to me and get the Bonnie..thank god for him I came around. Well, I wouldn't mind riding in the Cadillac either.

I think it was the long, straight dashboard with the lack of neato dials and stuff :P ...and the bench seat. It felt like my Grandma'* car inside.

The one I had had bucket seats and the dash wasn't that straight, unless they changed the style for 2003...
