Will be renting an Impala for this trip coming up.

I will be renting an Impala LS for my upcoming trip on Thursday to Little Rock Ark & Branson, Mo. The rental car company can't guarantee it will be there tomorrow ( its there today ). Even thought I made a
resservation. They know how to take the reservation but they can't hold on to it ( sounds like a Sienfelt episode ).The 2nd choice is a Grand Prix, if that's gone its..............ye,ol'......... Taurus : - (
The LS I saw there today has the leather bucket seat interior in it.
WIll post a rental report next week. The Bonneville isn't seaworthy for this trip and I've no time to play fix it man before Thursday.

Impalas are nice. 3400 or 3800? If they don't have the Impala, and you get the Grand Prix (is it the new one or previous model?). If it's the previous model GP, you'll notice how cramped the seats are and how hard it is to get in/out of the GP plus the ergonomics are a little goofy. I'd go so far as to recommend a Buick Century, even a Chevy Malibu, over a GP. I worked for Alamo Car Rental for 3 years and drove all of these cars everyday.

Justin,
These are 2004 cars. The GP is the new body. Impala LS has the 3800. The only other GM cars offered are Alero & Grand Am. Other cars they have are Mustang & Sebring convertibles. Towncar, Taurus, Toyota's & Mitsu's.

Is it just me or is the rear doors for the 04 GP awkward?

Awkward looking or awkward function wise?
Getting in & out of one at the Chicago Auto Shop was hard. You had to duck to get in and the rear seat area is very cramped. No leg, knee oe foot room. It is also unbelieveable how far the back glass comes forward, well beyond your head.
A very low roofline indeed. From a side stance it looks sharp & I like the cropped down side windows on the rear doors. Its just to bad the floor wasn't lower so you could fit in the car.
You realize Women are designing alot of cars now.
