2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
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 --
Squeaks, creaks & rattles all over - especially in the dash panel. Very poor craftsmanship
Engine performance - very good.
- 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.
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.
