By buying Japenese on
2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
When I saw this car I thought I would get a lot of bang for my buck. What I got was a drain on my wallet. I have put less than 15,000 miles on this car and already replaced exhaust system, transmission sensors and the problem is still not fixed. GM reimbursed me for the exhaust system but only about 60% of the bill and the trany problems are related to the catalytic problems I had but not covered by recall. This car has started to ride very rough and goes through brakes like crazy. Car also shakes and shimmys around 55- 60mph
This car is loaded with features, no doubt you get your money's worth. I love the steering wheel radio controls, the sunroof, heated leather seats, OnStar
Make it ride a little better and improve on the reliablity. At least pay for repairs caused by recall.
