2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the 2006 Chevy Impala Ltz recently from a dealership in Iowa.
The car had only 33,500 miles on it -- thus I thought that it would be an excellent buy & value for the money.
Mechanically the car is fine - the 3.9 L - 6 cylinder engine performs very well.

The heater does not work properly .
The heater takes forever to kick in & generate warm / hot air -- the heater works fine when driving.
The heater does not work when sitting idling in traffic - blows cold air.
The rear window defroster does not work at all.

The quality of the interior
is horrendous --
very cheap.
Squeaks, creaks & rattles all over - especially in the dash panel. Very poor craftsmanship


Best Features

Engine performance - very good. 3.9 L - 6 cylinder. Highway handling is very good. Gas mileage reasonable - 20 MPG around town - high 20s highway. The car had 33, 500 miles on it when I purchased it a few weeks ago. Exterior styling is very good - nice size. The interior offers very generous space & the trunk is huge.


Worst Features

Quality - especially the interior - very poor - very cheap. Numerous creaks, rattles & squeaks inside the car - especially in the front dash panel. Overall, I am very disappointed in the craftsmanship & quality of this car & would not recommend this brand & model. I am likely to trade the car in very soon for another brand - most likely for a Honda or Toyota.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased a 2006 Impala in 2007. I was originally drawn to its style, power, comfort, very quiet ride, etc. I got a good price for it because it was a former rental. I bought it with 28,000 miles and traded it in at 99,600. In between that time it was pretty reliable. Right after the warranty ran out, I had problems with the steering system popping.I began to notice other problems at 75,000. The paint had the durability of nail polish. The driver's side visor hung down. I never could get the brakes to stop pulsating despite changing rotors. Random warning lights came on. Finally - no heat at idle. Head gaskets. Dealer wanted $1,900 to fix.


Best Features

Very smooth, quiet ride. Big and comfortable. I usually averaged 25 mpg city/highway combo.


Worst Features

Overall build quality needs to improve.
