Vehicle2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewOur Impala is a decent car, but several problems have plagued us. New tie-rods at 30k (dealer found "problem" during state inspection and replaced under warranty). The rack and pinion was replaced at about 10k due to a loud squeal. The weak Goodyear RS-A tires were replaced after the third one blew out before 30k miles. The instument cluster was replaced at 37k due to a grinding noise in the tach. It's great to drive and the fuel mileage is incredible, over 25 average!! It's a good car, but I wouldn't buy another one.
Best FeaturesSteering wheel radio controls, ease of cleaning rims (I know it sounds silly, but they are a breeze to clean), big brakes, really low road noise (with Michelin tires finally.), wiper mounted windshield squirters.
Worst FeaturesWhere do I start, hmmm...the sunroof should retract inside the roof, it's really loud when it's open. More reliable hardware (things that don't normally break, seem to in this car), get rid of the interior door handle exposed Torx bolts, they corrode quickly.
