2000 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan
Just over 3 yrs, 24k+ miles. Agree
with all the positives from the other
reviewers; share only a few of the
negatives: slight vibration in
steering column, dealer repaired under
warranty, needing only lubricant.
Notice slight shake in wheel when
braking lightly at higher speed
(rotor issue noted by
others?); hesitation once in a blue
moon when lightly accelerating.
Tranny went on a friend's Impala at
32k, but replaced under warranty. Mine
is flawless so far.
This is a good, comfortable,
attractive, fun car, and perhaps the
best overall value for $. Domestic nay-
sayers should give it a good honest
Interior room; trunk; rear seat comfy
for 3; split fold down rear seat;
styling (even the throw-back tail light
design); power/fuel economy; handling;
stereo controls on steering wheel;
driver/passenger climate control;
heated power seats; premium wheels.
Car handles great in winter.
Steering shaft vibration fixed in the
newer models? Eliminate the spoiler -
partly obstructs rear vision. At my
height (6'3"), the overhead console
(love the compass/thermometer, etc)
also partly obstructs the rear view
mirror - mirror should be mounted
