2006 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
I made the biggest mistake ever in buying this car. I bought it from someone I didn't know well. He told me it might need brakes. Ok I accept that. I take the car to a delership. It neeed rotars, a tirod
end and a new battery. But supposedly nothing serious. I get those issues fixed. I went on vacation with my family a couple hours away from home. Fine all the way up there and during my trip. On my way home. Right before we hit the E-way it starts acting funny. Then it died. I had it towed to a dealership. Turns out it has motor problems like it needs a new engine!!! Because of a crack or something deep inside the motor.
I had to have it towed home. 180 miles!!!
It was a comfortable car.
My suggestion is have your motor checked inside and out before buying this new or used.
