What would make a good first car?

I'm doing a little first car shopping and don't know which car would suit my needs. I'm looking for something cheap on insurance, fun to drive, and easy on gas. Preferably nothing smaller than a 3.0 engine.

I'm currently looking at a 2002 Chevy Impala thats clean, 158,500 miles, and a 3.8 under the hood. It's in VERY good comdition.
Do you guys think it would be a good car?
