I may be 1 of 7.3 people in the world who actually like this car, but it is what it is... 2006-2016 Chevrolet Impala. Every time I rode in one of these - I was always impressed by the bench seat, comfort, quietness, interior simplicity, and just a solid "I'm riding a tank" feel. If I was to get one today, for daily driver duty, which one would be the one to get? Which years of 3.9L are the best? Or is 3.5L better? 3.6L scares me with the chains of timing... Does 5.3L really go through transmissions as fast as people claim? I don't know much about it. Got any pointers? Which model (with bench seat) would be the one to go with for long term?
