Time for a new car

2004 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Bought this car from my father-in law so the price was right. At 40000 miles I had to replace the water pump. The transmission slams hard between 2nd and third. Steering makes an awful sound (poor lubrication of the intermediate shaft). Trunk freezes shut in the winter and with no handle is almost impossible to open. The security system (passlock) has malfunctioned a few times meaning the car wouldn't start. Brakes warp prematurely. On the up side, the car is comfy and rides well, but steering is vague. Decent power and fuel economy. This was one of Chevy's better cars, and shows why GM is struggling. I have owned a few cheaper imports which have been bullet proof. Time to sell!

Review

Have had very few break downs, only problem have been the brakes but it is not that much of a problem. Also it gets pretty good gas mileage for a 4dr Sudan. Though I found the default radio deck controls kind of confusing at first, as I am use to simpler buttons, but there not that hard to understand.

Review

Traded in an Oldsmobile Sillouette. Did see a particular need for a van & also the discontinuance of Olds. Always have been a family car person. Bought the Impala here in PA (Monesson). Been completely satisfied. Only long tripwas to Columbus, GA & back to Pgh area PA. Great gas mileage. Once on the open hiway, I set cruise control on 61 or 62. I do not fight traffic.

2004 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Review

I love my Impala SS Indy Limited edition. It has been an overall great car! It is comfortable, fun to drive, and the sterreo is awesome! My only complaint with this vehicle is having to put premium gas in it. Ooch! It is not a winter vehicle unless you live somewhere that doesn't get any snow!

Mostly Happy

2004 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Bought the car late 2003. Still have it and am now at 108,000 miles. Replaced the temp gauge at 80,000 miles, brakes at 87,000 miles and had no other major problems until 106,000 miles and then the biggie: Transmission went bad. Had to be rebuilt ($2,000). After that bummer, I have resummed my love for the car. Rides smooth, love the interior room. Not the easiest to handle on curves, but this car will fly! Lots of power, with a hint of a luxury feel. Great for road trips. Could be more sound proof inside, but overall well-built car. Would probably buy another.

Still in love after 3+ years

2004 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Purchased my Impala Oct '04 and it ranks as my best purchase ever. More than 42 years of driving & owning 11 previous cars + 4 or 5 company vehicles. Key points: Fuel economy is outstanding. Who needs econo-boxes? On cruise control at 55 = 35+ MPG all day long. At 60 it gets 31 MPG. Maintenance: This car's been trouble- free for nearly 56,000 miles. A defective dashboard display was replaced at dealer's request and under warrenty early in 2007. I'm on 2nd set of tires and brakes (49K miles). The car's a hoot to drive and the kids in the little imports can't believe the way my Impala handles and outperforms much smaller cars. I'm sold!

Some Problems

Vehicle

2004 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)

Review

This is a fun car to drive. We have had some problems with the engine/SS/fuel injectors. The car is still under warranty. The car begins to sputter driving over 40 mph when you hit the gas peddle. Also, the power steering seems to be going out. Something loose in the column and getting harder to turn when driving slower. Chevy dealers can't seem to find the problem.

Impala a decent car for the money

2004 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

While it isn't the Impala of the 60's the 2004 Impala is still a pretty decent car. Solid build structure (withstood a concrete truck backing into front end very well). Fuel economy is not excellent but good for a car this size. No major component breakdowns yet. Just quite a few more minor annoyances. Brake part frequent servicing,a number of worrying, but so far harmless, noises of varying types. Comfortable to drive, reasonable quite ride, good handling. Has been a 7.5 out of 10 on overall satisfaction. Lots of trunk space, especially with fold down rear seats. Standard stereo not outstanding but more than adequate. Exterior finish good to very good. Horn stinks, intend to replace it.

My '04 Impala LS has performed great. I have taken it on long trips and gotten around 30 MPG at interstate speeds. I have no complaints and would buy another Chevy Impala again.

2004 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Very satisfied. Gas mileage not as much as I thought would be about 24 mpg. A few warranty issues with brakes and rotors, speedometer, steering column, paint chipping on volume button for steering wheel. Luckily everything covered under warranty. Very nice car otherwise
