This car is honestly the best vehicle I have ever owned.
I purchased it in mid-2009 with 52,000 miles on it and it now has 95,000 miles.
The only problem I have had thus far was with the instrument panel, but that was fixed under warranty.
It has been 100% reliable, always starts, always runs well.
I have run full synthetic oil in it since day 1.
I have taken this car on several long trips and it is super comfy and has gotten 31 mpg driving at 75 mph.
The power is substantial, but I will opt for the 3.8 next time around.
Overall this car is hard to beat.
Power, comfort, reliability, and great gas mileage for a huge car! A+
Awesome gas mileage!
Built in amplifier makes the system rock right out of the box!
I would say I'm totally satisfied with this car and the only thing I would change would be to increase the resell value because this car is worth it's weight in gold!
2005 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
I just purchased my 2005 Chevy Impala SS. I've only had it a short time and really love it. I'm an enthusiast and this car meets most of my high standards. It has plenty of room for my 2 kids, huge truck, and it's a great car for a 45 year old dad. I bought it with 31,000 miles and have to say this Impala is of few that are truly worthy of the legendary SS badge dating back 50 years. if you find one of these with low miles, grab it, they are now hard to find and will be future collections. Bravo GM you did this one right.
Handling, Performance, Creature comforts. Love On Star.
Improve fuel mileage. Buyer beware this car does not meet up to today's standards as far as efficiency. 16 mpg is the best I can do with combined driving.
I really can't find anything about my Impala that I don't like. It is comfortable driving, I have good visibility, use my cruise control on highway and have only had the usual maintenance done and the history the maintenance was done when specified. I would recommend buying this car to anyone wanting a comfortable, safe car especially those who travel a lot. Had back problems with other cars, not with my Impala, has a Lumbar adjustment in drivers seat. Love driving my car.
Adjustable seat for comfort, air bags for all riders, nice interior and exterior.
I purchased my 2005 Impala used in 2006, with 20,000 miles. Since than I have had to replace the water heater, radiator, cost of 1300.00. Dealer did not volunteer any additional information about this issue. Since than my speedometer and RPM gauge cluster went out another 600.00. not to mention my traction issue that was another 700.00. Oh, and when they say they checked your fluids I think they just look at them because at my last oil change 2 months ago they never said I was low on anything. I found my coolant to be low.And I don't understand how they overlooked an interior light other than the miniscule lights built in the mirror I will never buy a Chevy again.
The only thing I like about this car after owning it for the last 4 years is the interior.
Need to improve all mechanical issues with a better quality. Longer warranty. Honest dealerships. And a yearly rebate for its upkeep by GM.
