And they refused to order more before production ceased.


On the contrary, the Impalas are all out of service at least 1-2 days per month. They all tick and rattle. We've had engine, electrical, and HVAC issues in each and every one. And the oldest is a 2008.


It's the Illinois way - doubling down on failure.
Late model Impalas are a lot smaller, are they not? I haven't driven one, but I think they are a much smaller vehicle than they used to be. I don't think Ford even makes a car as big as he Crown Vic anymore.

Which is why a lot of departments are switching to the Explorer. All the officers I know love having the extra space in them.

I went and talked to the boss. We're getting some new 2013s that have been sitting in a parking lot for 8 months.

I'm just so happy.

Not.
