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


Review

Security Light comes on and car won't start for 10 min. Started once a month now 2 times a day. Talked to Chevy but no solution and no hope for a recall. Looked on-line for solution and found many people with same problem. They only have temp solution for $800 or more. This problem is a safety issue and needs to be recalled. Are you listening Chevy?


Best Features

Good radio but wont play MP3 as advertised. CD's come out very hot when ejected.


Worst Features

Recall and Fix the Security issue.

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


Review

The car had a nice feel like a older full sized car. The quality was horrible i have never had a car that required more repairs and was on a downhill slide then that car. Fuel regulator, wheel studs, water pump, transmission, etc... The resale value was horrible, just recently got rid of it and purchased a nissan.


Best Features

The ride when i first purchased it was nice like a comfortable full sized car.


Worst Features

Quality, never have i had a vehicle turn into junk before my eyes like this vehicle. I guess that's why this style and vehicle are no longer are offered from GM.

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


Review

Bought the car new. 3000 miles ac compressor froze. 2 steering racks replaced before 55,000 miles. Manifold gasket let go at 60,000 miles. Speedometer sometimes will not work9 (no safety issue here). Now the transmission will occassionally slip when taking off.


Best Features

I hope to be dumping it soon.

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


Review

04 impala LS/3.8L/90k miles. CClunking in steering wheel, ABS/traction control lights coming on at random, ABS pump coming on at random, cruise control malfunction, loud whining when I turn. I replaced all rotors and brakes, replaced struts, new tires replaced front wheel hubs, alternator, "greased intermediate steering shaft" and aligned wheels. Car still has a slight shake when I drive, still getting the ABS/TC light, ABS pump still engages AND still a light occaisional clunk in the steering column. even went back myself with a multi meter to check each hub individually to see if a sensor failed and check for bad wiring. Checked out OK. I found the problem. All substandard components.


Best Features

Leather, CD, sunroof (can get those anywhere)


Worst Features

Trade in.

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


Review

We've had our Impala since we bought it new in 04. It is fast, smooth and comfortable, the most comfortable car I've ever ridden in. Seats six with an enormous trunk. We have had absolutely nothing but oil changes, and just recently brakes. I love this car and expect to get another 160,000 miles. We have the Bose stereo and it's the bomb!


Best Features

Smooth ride. I have no desire to "feel the road" Acceleration - ZOOM, even with the 3.4


Worst Features

Stop selling it to cops so I won't look like I'm riding in a cop car. (Actually kind of fun making people think I'm an unmarked cop car...)
