A very happy owner.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
This is one happy owner. My Impala has 46,000 miles on her at this time, and she has been more dependable than any other vehicle ever owned by me. Average MPG stands at 25.6, which includes Minneapolis/Saint Paul rush hour traffic, and driving in snowy and icy conditions. This car has needed nothing but routine maintenance until the transmission lines needed replacing at 45,000 miles. The car has tons of pep when needed (or just for fun). The 200 hp rating for the motor seems under rated. The leather seat option was the correct way to go, and the seats are now as plush and comfortable as any sofa. Comfortable, fun to drive, nice MPG.
The gas mileage is a huge plus. The ride is incredibly comfortable and quiet. Nice stereo system that is not only loud but clean and clear. Originally thought the heaters in the front seats were a waste of money, but they are a Godsend during the winter. Very comfortable for people in the back seats.
None. No rust, paint still looks new, and the interior still looks pristine. A wonderful GM build. Built to last, with quality parts.
