This car ran well at first.
However,creaking and rattling noises
started in the front of the car, noted
in steering wheel. Dealer installed
cradle shims (replaced twice).
Transmission went at 100,000 miles
(torque converter and 4th gear). Was
told by servicing company the
transmisison was new for 2000, and has
reliability problems. Other 2000
Impalas were taken to the same service
shop due to transmission. Also, rotors
warp and need to be replaced often. I
also had a problem with charcoal
canister and emission system. I also
had a problem with headliner sagging
near sunroof. It is a shame that GM
produced a car with this many
Interior room and comfort,good handling
on slippery road conditions.
Fix engine crade problem, improve
transmission reliability, make rotors
last longer(I heard they are made
lighter due to mileage requirements
