Did Edmunds test the same car I bought?
By David Rogers on


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


I don't understand Edmunds' beration of this vehicle. My Impala has been an absolute pleasure to own. We owned a 1990 Linc. Town Car prior to our 2002 Impala and had nothing but trouble with it. NO domestic can rival the Linc's air-ride, but the Impala comes very close. A more sporty ride, the Impala has better handling & does not "float" at speed as the Linc. does. We've had only one problem, the sealed headlamp module on the driver's side failed & moisture got into the unit. Other than that the car has performed flawlessly. If you are looking for a solid, 6 passenger vehicle, with luxury car ride and feel, at a reasonable price, buy the Impala.

Best Features

Great gas mileage & loves 87 octane; excellent ride & front/side visibility; controls layout is sensible; the vehicle is easy to enter & exit, & is very roomy. A pleasure on trips with the family as you can load the big trunk for a week & have room to spare.

Worst Features

Rear vision could be better; std. 6 seems underpowered(on the low-end)but may be trans. gearing; front air- dam drags the ground far too often; steering is a bit stiff at cruise; rear tail lights are reminiscent of earlier Impalas & date the 2002's styling; trunk opening is too high.
