It was a question, not a joke.  I rent at least 25 car a year. Mostly from Avis/Budget since I belong to the American Airlines Frequent Flier program. I get more "miles" on my account when I rent from them. Sometimes an upgrade. This Impala will be an upgrade car when the local branch of Avis/Budget run out of that shit box GM calls a Cruze or is it a Mali-poo? Whatever. 90% of the cars I rent are GM cars. I do think I have a more of a real world experience with GM cars than you do driving them around a dealership floor court.

At some point you'll realize that your self-proclaimed authority on... well, anything, is just arrogance derived from delusions of grandeur that a person tends to have when they wake up one day and realize "Holy shit I SUCK".

Either i'm serious or I'm just fucking with you. You tell me.

I think it's some odd time continuum thing.  I gotta stop playing with those vortexes like you guys warned me about.  Shit's coming home to roost now!

I really like the looks of this car.
If the 4 cylinder has enough power to move the car around and get fairly good mileage I'd have no problem with it.

If they'll add a twin turbo awd variant I would buy. This car is already heavy, the LT trim package is 3800 lbs, so you'll need the 300 hp v6 just to out pace a Prius.

The 3600 lbs Grand Prix GTP managed to out pace the Prius with only 260 hp sooo...

Holy Shit, I do suck. After all I'm a 40 year old college educated old man  that holds a upper management position in a major city Police Department. However what really makes me stands apart in the "suck" department is that also have four money loaning firms in two states that employee fourteen people full time. You are right Nick, I really do suck.

Just remember, you started flaming me when I asked when this new Chevrolet would be available at a national rental car chain.

Did you miss the part where I said to knock it off?  I already got on Nick about it.  Your added 2 cents wasn't necessary.

Never said it would.  Your request for a 300 HP twin turbo AWD car is a bit over kill for what's needed ;)

The V6 that is being offered has 303 hp. So obviously GM doesn't agree with you. :mrgreen:

For the record, I was thinking of 420hp tt v6. :lol:

My car came with 150hp and weighs 4k pounds. It moved around alright stock. It was also rated at 270 ft-lbs though.

Meh, the last gen is still the same platform from the early 2000's so this will be a welcomed improvement.

I've got one of the latest generation lol.
Its a good car and does what I need it to, carrying a shitton of mountain bikes and gear while still having enough room for passengers, softer ride, if I keep it at its sweet spot speed of 58-59 MPH I can average 32 mpg. Besides the random radio resets and the torque converter exploding its been a reliable car.
