2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I've had this car for 6 years and have had no major problems. Expected minor repairs all done myself. Wheel bearings, water pump, power steering pump. All routine repairs as far as I'm concerned over the course of ten years. Car is very easy and cheap to work on. 155,000 miles on it and I'd take it anywhere. In fact i recently drove it from Phoenix to Ohio and back. No doubt it'll make it at least another 100,000 mi. Drive train is very durable. Also, some expected interior issues. 2 window regulators (phoenix heat and plastic gears don't mesh), hazard switch, bad window switch.Again, all routine and easy repairs. I never recommend buying a high mileage used chevy. Scheduled Maint. is a must.
Comfort, Control, Style
Sounds like a lot of people have security system/starting problems (not me) with the anti theft system. Keep in mind it was a fairly recent technology when this car was put into production.
