Bought the car with 36,000 miles. Rides Nice. Handles good. At 66,000 miles now and so far we had to replace intake gaskets (oil leaking into antifreeze) $650, water pump$200, steering $138 ( clunked when turning) and now p. C. M module in transmission $779 (shifting hard when cold or going up hill) and a wheel bearing! By reading comments from other people, all have had the same issue. Some not. Wow the impala use to be bulletproof
Rides smooth, handles Nice, great for long trips. (thank god it did not break down on vacations!) quiet ride. Big trunk
Quit being cheap when building a car. From 2001-2005 had the same body style, same motors etc., you could not work out the bugs in that time!
