GM Needs to improve quality
By Not Impressed on
2005 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this car used in February 2006. It had been privately owned with 16,000 miles on it. It has the 3.4 liter V6. Two weeks after purchase the CD player quit and had to be replaced. A couple of months later the transmission developed a vibration when shifting from 1st into 2nd. This was apparently a factory defect because there was a campaign out on it. The day I got the car back it began to slip when accelerating from a stop. 3 trips to the dealership to figure this out. A solinoid in the tranny was bad. The manifold gasket started leaking. The steering column rattles and I was told GM was working on this. Not very quickly, my mom's 95 Olds does the same thing. The AC has musty smell too
Comfortable to drive. Good ride. Dual zone climate control.
Improve transmissions and over all quality of the vehicle.
