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


Review

I had my Impala worry free for about 3 years. Then I had to replace the head gaskets at 56K miles, which were about $800. Then the tie rods went, which were about $200 a piece. Now its the security system, for a second time. I replaced the ignition switch in August and it was fine until January. Then I replaced the switch and the cylinder but it still wont start, and waiting 10 minutes for the sec. system to reset does not work. Now its just sitting in my driveway looking dumb while my '88 Oldsmobile with 255k on the odometer starts fine every day. I loved my car when I first got it, but now i just want to get rid of it, and I am still making payments on a driveway fixture.


Best Features

Looks, room, trunk space, V-6 engine


Worst Features

Recall the car for the security system and the head gaskets, too frequent of a problem for too many Impala owners

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


Review

I bought this car new and have had nothing but problems with the wheel bearings, breaks, keyless entry, starter/ignition, cat converter (3x), turn signals, power window switch (2x), engine seals replaced (2x), fuel gauge, emergency flasher switch, low coolant sensor (2x), and the list could go on...


Best Features

When it's not in the shop the gas mileage is great, 20 city & 30 highway, & it's large enough for 3 car seats on the back row.


Worst Features

GM to buy back all of the lemons they sold...never again will I buy a GM...

Review

This vehicle is a piece of junk. Had a $3200 transmission and manifold gasket repair, had to replace two sensors for the idle for $180 and also had to have this vehicle completely grounded again to fix the temp gauge/ac not working issue...$160 Rattles like crazy, handling stinks!


Best Features

Decent acceleration and mpg. Good stereo. Decent brakes


Worst Features

GM learn how to make decent cars!

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


Review

Purchased this car in 2005 with about 100,000. Have 133,000 on it now. Haven't any major problems. Gets great gas mileage for a large sedan and the motor runs smooth. Lots of room for a tall guy. Only complaints are some funky electrical problems. The turn signals work intermittently and the power window switches had to be replaced.


Best Features

Gas mileage, lots of room, nice ride, and nice running engine.


Worst Features

More attention needs to be paid to the electrical components.
