2001 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have had a very good experience with this vehicle in the year that I have owned it. The Impala is large enough to accommodate a family, but not too big. Acceleration is good, fuel economy is excellent and overall I would buy this car again. Brake/rotor wear is the only major issue I have had. This car is often compared to Honda/Toyota, yet unfairly dismissed for GM's past quality issues. I have owned both Honda and Toyota and when cost is a factor in your decision you will find the Impala a much better buy for your dollar. GM has made leaps and bounds in closing the QC gap it has faced against its Japanese counterparts. You will be impressed with the caliber of this vehicle.


Favorite Features

Great gas mileage for a sedan of this size(24city/32hwy). Appealing exterior, roomy interior, dual and curtain-side airbags, comfortable ride. Lots of trunk space- the rear seats fold down for oversized cargo. On-Star equipped.


Suggested Improvements

Position of the coffee/cup holders should be redesigned so your arm is not bumping into your drink. Brake/rotor quality needs improved. Heater/AC blower controls need improvement. Heated mirrors should be standard equipment.

2001 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is the first car I've ever owned. It's kind of intimidating at first, but the look and the ride is absolutely georgous.


Favorite Features

The car is huge, I sink in it. I'm not crammed into a tiny seat/ space.


Suggested Improvements

Keyless entry & CD player would make it flawless.

2001 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have almost 49000 miles on my Chevrolet .The steering has had excessive work required, both struts have been replaced some sort of drag link has been replaced two times.The electrical system is a joke, the fuel gauge works part time,other indicators are unreliable.The transmission is noisy and slams in when shifting down.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature of this car will be when it is absent from my garage.

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


Review

This is our second Impala LS. The first ('00) has more than 80k and has had no problems, brakes lasted until 75k. We still have it and now have 3k on 01 LS used with similar great performance. Car is underrated.
