after owning this car for almost 2
years and i have to say that this car
is tough as nails i have 43000 miles on
it and i have not have take into
service for anything except for oil
changes and regular maintenance. if you
are looking for car with a lot of room
and features and won't break the bank
the chevy impala is worth a shot.
very good gas mileage for a full size
car, averaging 26 city and about 35 on
the highway, better than cars smaller
with four cylinder engines ,lot of
features for the money, good riding
car,quite of bit of car for the money
syling may not be for everybody, make
the 3800 v6 standard, a little more
trunk security would help, can't wait
for 2006 redesign with v8 option.
I just got my Impala. Hey everyone,
this is 2003 now, don't compare it to
and old version of the Impala. It
rocks and looks good too! Lots of
room, but sharp looking and drives
well for me. I don't even feel the
tranny top out it is so smooth.
My car performed great until around
17,000 miles. Heater core cracked and
soaked my passenger carpet with
coolant. A number of rattles have
developed. Bad odor coming from vents
required the dealership to install a
special blower fan (aparently there is
a GM bulletin on this issue so it is
not unique to me).
Ride is bouncy. Road/tire notice is
too extensive for a vehicle in this
Acceleration and braking are good.
Quality control. Suspension upgrade.
More sound dampening/insulation.
