2008 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased used certified from a Chev dealer only 5 months ago with 135,000 km. Was in near perfect condition inside and out. Very fun to drive. Lots of power, no loss of oil or coolant leaks. Recently drove on a long trip and the car performed great! Tons of power through the mountains. Getting about 9.5 liters per 100K. Respectable. I replaced the factory audio system, because it sucked. Performed well but the audio was bad. Replaced with an aftermarket Pioneer deck and the system came to life. Now sounds ok with the factory 6 speaker system. I find better automatic shifting using "3rd" instead of "D" Not a 4 speed. 3 speed with overdrive.


Best Features

Looks, power, spacious interior, large trunk. Reliable. Handles great in the city and solid feel on the highway.


Worst Features

Could use a power seat or manual height adjustment on the passenger seat.

2008 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought 2008 impala in 2011 with 59k on the speedometer. Besides a few issues I like the car. In 2013, the car now is at 92k.


Best Features

Powerful engine in a light frame.


Worst Features

I replaced the following: 2 rear door latches at $140 each (parts only), front rotors($39.95 each, parts) and ceramic pads($54.00, parts). They warped when I bought the car. Problem with the traction control and engine limit power lights due to improper tire pressures. The car should instead raise improper tire pressures, but it chooses to raise the other two alerts instead. The cruise control doesn't work when I bought the car.
