Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Impala

  • It might be called the Impala, but this dreadful, front wheel drive family sedan has little in common with the V8-powered, rear wheel drive models of the past. Skip it in favor of the more refined offerings from Ford, Chrysler and Toyota.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Six-passenger seating availability, good crash test scores, torquey V6 engines.

  • Cons

    So-so styling, wallowy suspension,low-buck interior.

  • What's New for 2002

    Now into its third year of production, the Impala soldiers on as Chevrolet's bread-and-butter family sedan. Minor upgrades this year…

Gasket trouble

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Tons of interior and trunk space, especially rear seat "leg room" which is perfect for child seats. Replaced head gasket at 72,000 miles and cat-converter at 82,000. The clogged cat was a symptom of the prior gasket failure. This is the 3rd GM 3.4L V6 I have owned, head gasket went in all 3, poor engine design. Get the LS with the 3.8L and you'll be just fine. Crossing fingers that repairs over $1,200 are done with for a while.




Good sedan for nearly any

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I have owned this car for almost two years now. It was my father's car and he had purchased it new and neither him nor myself have had too much trouble with it. It's had one new battery, I recently had a tune up for it and put new brakes on it. It always has been good for trips and for having more people riding with me. I bought it with 80k miles on it and now it has 120k and I think it will last another 120k!




When does it end

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

The Impala is not fit because it has too many problems. It is good on gas and the ride is alright on the highway for long trips but. Not recognizing the key therefore the car won't start and having to the wait for the computer to shut down 12-15 mins is not right. Approx $1100 to fix, then intake manifold gasket leaking which the coolant can eventually leak into the eng $1000, brakes never seem to be good, fix at dealer with minimal cost but eventually did a whole new brake job, muffler pipe has a crack, lower control arm bushings left and right needs to be replaced, now head gasket dealer $2200, private shop $1400 and eng rebuilt at priv shop $2400. I only have $155k when does it end.
