Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Impala

  • It may be called the Impala, but this dreadful front-wheel-drive family sedan has little in common with the V8-powered rear-drive models of the past. Skip it in favor of the more refined offerings from Ford, Chrysler and Toyota.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Six-passenger seating availability, big brakes, torquey V6 engines.

  • Cons

    So-so styling, no V8, wallowy suspension, big front-drive cars rarely sell as well as big rear-drivers.

  • What's New for 2001

    GM resurrected the Impala nameplate last year (a staple in Chevy's lineup from 1959 to the early '80s and then briefly from 1994 to '96) and put it on an all-new, full-sized sedan body that rides on the Lumina front-drive platform. Although the Lumina itself is still with us for the 2001 -model-year, Impala will eventually replace it as Chevy's large-car entry to battle the likes of Ford's Crown Victoria, Buick's LeSabre and Chrysler's LH cars.

Money pit!!!!!!

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my impala since 04 I bought it used with 60,000 miles on it. I have replaced the motor once, tranny once, and the power steering went 2 times and that was withing the first 2 years under the warrenty as well as the ABS and traction control sensors in the hubs are a pain they go every 2 years if not more often. Now after the warrenty is up I will say this thing has sucked more money out of me then if I had children! I find my self replacing the power steering pump constantly and the high presure line and the rack and pinion. The gas gauge doesnt work cause the level sensor in the sending unit is frozen and they want 300 for the whole unit cause you can't get just the level sensor.




Don't want to give up

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Purchased this car new. Currently has 122,000 miles on it. Classy looking and very comfortable. This vehicle handles and rides like a dream even through I am hard on vehicles. I did have some issues with the electrical system during the first few months, but they were resolved. As others have noted, there is an issue with a knock in the steering & the gas float doesn't work anymore, but I work around it. Getting approx 28 mpg in rural driving situation. Husband is pushing for a new car, but I don't like the style of the new Impala's. Hate to see the "old girl" go. I'll probably go for an all wheel drive crossover this time since I can't find a sedan that gives me what I want.




Love my car

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I love my car the ride is great i have over 145,000 miles on my car and this week is the first time i have to replace axles this car has been good & would buy another. It's like anything if you take care of it, it will take care of you. do your maintenance, it make a difference.




Very reliable

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

I've had this car for 6 years and have had no major problems. Expected minor repairs all done myself. Wheel bearings, water pump, power steering pump. All routine repairs as far as I'm concerned over the course of ten years. Car is very easy and cheap to work on. 155,000 miles on it and I'd take it anywhere. In fact i recently drove it from Phoenix to Ohio and back. No doubt it'll make it at least another 100,000 mi. Drive train is very durable. Also, some expected interior issues. 2 window regulators (phoenix heat and plastic gears don't mesh), hazard switch, bad window switch.Again, all routine and easy repairs. I never recommend buying a high mileage used chevy. Scheduled Maint. is a must.
