Review

I do love my 2000 Impala (19000 miles) but I am concerned about the intermediate steering shaft. I had a knocking/banging noise when driving the car, it was constant. I just took it in to have it repaired today. I hope my dealership will fix it properly. I have noticed other complaints about this problem also (that is why the But!). Really can not complain about anything else but GM should notice this problem.


Favorite Features

Ride, handling, and interior design. Consumer Reports safety rating. Childseat ease of use.


Suggested Improvements

Steering problem and the way the tailights look.

Review

I am a realtor and drive alot of miles with customers. This is a nice automobile to drive in winter with icy, snow packed roads. It holds the road well, imparting a feeling of safety for passengers. It is comfortable; easy to get in and out of. I really like my Impala and am thinking of buying the 2003 model. My only complaint is the road noise.


Favorite Features

good gas mileage--comfortable--radio controls on the steering wheel.


Suggested Improvements

improve insullation for road noise

Review

Overall very good. Upgraded tires (Continental CH-95's) made a significant difference. Have had occasional problems with hesitation while accelerating (improved some after servicing), the radio has become tempermental (reception), and had to have a cracked subframe replaced. A perfectly adequate performer for my needs.


Favorite Features

Solid motor; handles well, even at high speed (100+); great trunk; excellent brakes; decent highway gas mileage; the auto-dimming mirror.


Suggested Improvements

A remote release, locking fuel door would be nice. I don't like the automatic changing DRL/headlight setup...some people look at you like you are flashing your lights at them. The trunk cargo net is not very impressive. Not crazy about the OEM tires (Eagle GA's).

Review

I drive for a living to call on many accounts throughout Michigan. I drive in all weather conditions. I have been delighted with the IMPALA. I wanted a car with a comfortable ride, lots of trunk space, engine power and relability. I have only one problem and that is the steering was making a crunching sound. I have had that repaired. All is well. Sometimes the breaks "grab" and make a "jerking" motion. But most of the time there is no problem. I have ordered another one.


Favorite Features

Seats are comfortable, engine has enough pep. Good all weather comfort. Love the large trunk.


Suggested Improvements

Air conditioning could be stronger. Improve styling. Poor mans BMW.

Review

Nothing but problems from day one.First probems with keyless entry, receiver replaced, two computers replaced ,the dealer called GM, they told them it was the circiut board behind the instrument panel, problem solved. Next creeking noise when turning sharply to left and right. Dealer replaced steering rack, not the probem.Called GM, They told the dealer it was flex in the engine cradle. Not enough room for the rest of the problems.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage, heated seats are great. I guess the latter ones have a lot less problems.


Suggested Improvements

Nicer interior, a sun roof that goes inside of the roof.

Review

Less than 10 days to lease end, and I'm still thinking about buying my base Impala Sedan. No abs, but sporty 16 inch wheels in dark green make the car a looker. I can feel the ride loosening, and the tranny slipping, so I may be unloading at the right time. I did not know the engine cradle was a problem. Anyway, after 37k miles of NY metro driving, I have not replaced the tires, or brakes, just oil & the driver power window switch.


Favorite Features

Look, gas mileage, roomy, pickup for a base is way above average


Suggested Improvements

tighter handle, less shake abs standard, better cup holders (cheap plastic) front & rear (shallow depth).
