GM for sure, they are the best at making cheap, unreliable autos and hiding defective parts. They are better than ford, chevy and dodge it....hands down! They have one hand in their pocket and the other is wrapped around their johnson!!!!!

I bought a 2014 Impala (LT with the 6-cyl.) last November and I love it. It has the largest trunk among the sedans in its class (including the Avalon) except for the Taurus, but the Taurus got poor reviews fro Consumer Reports and others.
It's stylish and quiet and has a nice ride but good handling for its size. Fit and finish are fine. Reliability was unrated by CU because it was too new, but so far, I had only one minor problem that they fixed for free.
I recommend the LT with 6-cyl., the advanced safety package, the convenience package, and the sunroof. I had the dealer add mudflaps and all-weather floormats.
The only complaint I have is that it is not a beast in the snow. It performs OK, but with a few inches of unplowed snow on a moderate slope from a dead stop, it struggles. I suspect more aggressive tires would solve that problem and I may get a set of snow tires next winter.
If you go with snow tires I would suggest the Michelin X Ices. Don't forget to take them off when the weather warms.

The NTSB will make sure that no other company used the same ignition "death" switches as GM. A guy had a 2003 Ford Taurus, it would shut off, then back on all by itself while driving down the road at 70mph....it was scary. He had it looked at many times and wouldnt you know, nothing was found......nice. The whole time GM and the other dumbastics were hiding the issues and problems to sell autos. Im sure many people will come forward with evidence of a botched auto recall system that sweeps issues under the rug.

Michelin tires are nice. We have no need for snow tires down here but they offer nice tires.

I drive a lot and last two cars have been Hyundai sonatas.

why? 10 year 100,000 mile warrantee on power train which is the best in the industry..

Before the purchase I looked at lots of cars but this car has more standard stuff built in , rides like a dream gets great gas millage.

I love cars have owned many different brands since the 60's but this is the best car I have had so far.

You can pay more for a car but you get more car for your money with this brand.

Retired driving teacher , transportation consultant drove over a million miles in lots of cars, trucks since I started driving.

My next car may be a tesla as the price comes down. Electric cars are the wave of the future.
