2003 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Bought this Impala new. Now has 81,000 miles. Best family sedan out. Have 3 children and all fit comfortably in backseat with plenty of luggage space. Great gas mileage and comfortable for long trips. Adequate acceleration, braking and handling. Mechanically, apparently cost accountants undercut engineering, hurting Chevy's reputation. Twice had to have steering shaft repacked with lube since steering column felt "loose". At 80,000 miles intake gasket gave out leaking antifreeze, costing $700 to repair. My 1st car was a '65 Corvair with 44,000 miles. Gaskets leaked oil. Replaced them with better quality and car lasted 100,000 more miles with no leaks when I sold it. When will Chevy learn?

Best Features

Spaciousness, good gas mileage, comfort on long trips.

Worst Features

Don't scrimp where it counts, mechanically. Does Chevy have a death wish for its corporate future?
