I owned a 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix that was fun sporty and fast. However its radiator cracked at about 200,000. I figured I should get a Chevy because i figured it would be a nice car. I was wrong I should have bought another Pontiac or Ford. I'm replacing tires every 19,000 miles approximately because the car came with a weird toe angle on the rear tires, the suspension and steering are too loose. On the suggested improvements i ran out of characters
1. Keyless entrance 2. Keyless start 3. Looks nice 4. Fairly decent power for sedan (stronger than my Toyota Camry and Honda Accord I had but weaker than my grand prix 5. Comfortable
1. Toe angle so tires do not need to be replaced constantly 2. Steering 3. Suspension 4. Magnesium wheels Rather than iron 5. Pillars are too fat 6. Mirrors are unbelievably small 7. Alignment issues 8. Hose to radiator started leaking at 26,000 miles 9. No rear cup holders 10. Center console is akward
2007 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)
This American sedan is great for anything I need a car to do. It has great room, good MPG, safe, nice style and design. The best thing about my American made Chevrolet is that it did not put an American out of work when I bought it! I had a 2003 BMW 540i until the car market went south. That is when I bought American and will again. If you live in Michigan you should think about buying a great American made Chevrolet Impala LTZ or SS.
Bought my 2007 Impala with 53,000 miles 6mo ago. Forth time having it serviced and only at 63,000. PCM failed after 4 months which hydrolocked my engine. Hydrolock caused fuel injectors to go and a bent piston. Had my car back for 24 hours after 2nd fix of engine problems and engine light is back on. GM unwilling to help any further. This was my first GM product and my LAST.. Owned a 1999 Dodge for 160,000 miles and no where near the problems I have experienced in just 10,000 miles with my Impala.
I had a great car and decided to trade it in for my 2007 impala. The car was great at first. After only 2 years of owning the car the check engine light came on. The car will get stuck in park often, the little? Mark is always coming on. The dealership has checked it time and again and they say they just need to reset the buttons. There is apparently nothing wrong with the car. The newest is the check tire monitoring system. I guess the connection to it is bad and it is not covered under the warranty. They want $80 just to put a new wire in it. This is by far the most complicated piece of crap I have ever bought. I am also a big Chevy fan so this makes it worse!
spacious interior and trunk.Great exterior design.Good gas mileage
I bought my Impala LS feb 2009 with 33,000 miles as a used rental car, the car now in april '10 it has nearly 60,000 miles. The car drives just as a large GM car should - smooth and quiet. The car has better road holding abilities than some older large GM cars I've owned. Some say the handiling of an Impala is poor but I can go around any turn at or slightly above the posted speed limit with out any issues. If you take recreational or business trips you will like this car alot. Fully loaded with 4 adults and gear I was 200lbs over max weight (about 1,200 lbs) and got 27mpg on a 150 mile sight seeing/camping trip through the hills of NY and PA. Its a good commuter car also with25- 28mpg avg
Smooth quiet ride. Standard V6 power. 5/100,000 power train warrenty. Power windows, locks, mirrors and drivers seat standard. The Solid transaxle and clean body style are a +++ also!
Move the heat/ac controles to the top of the dash where the vents are now... Make the controles more ez to use w/o actually looking at them... Also - offer better factory tires. The Good Year integrity tires that came with it made it handle poorly and they didnt last long.
