2009 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I have an 09 Impala LT with 78xxx miles on it. Very dissapointed with this car. it has been in the shop for NUMEROUS electrical actuators including two airbag actuators! Bought an extended warranty that even with the 100.00 deductible it has paid for itself probably two or three times over. The car currently has more issues but I just dont have the time. It is very comfortable to drive and has an excellent ride quality. But for a 27,000 dollar car it was poorly made and poorly trimmed. I mean not even a rear cup holder!?! Plus I looked into trading it in on a new car and only offered 8,000 for it and this thing is CLEAN. That is AWEFUL RESALE value!!! Highly do not recommend, sorry


Favorite Features

Ride comfort, stereo is decent without upgrade, good cab space


Suggested Improvements

Review

I purchased my 2009 impala lt2 in 5-09. It has been a nightmare took it off the lot at 20 miles before i hit a 1000 miles took it back because it wasnt holding air in the tires. And now it has 88,000 miles with going on putting the 13 set of rotors on it. I took gm to court and only receive $3500.00 with warranty on rotors till 100,000 miles but every 3000 to 5000 miles im getting new rotors. my suggestion do not buy. sad part about it gm dont take care of their retirees my whold family works for them and they didnt do anything about it.


Favorite Features

no favorite features had an 2006 that did the same thing as my 2009


Suggested Improvements

figure out what it causing the car to go through so many tires and rotors.

Review

I purchased my 2009 Impala LT 3.5L V6 Flex Fuel when i had to give up my 2007 Tahoe LTZ, I have no regrets! At first I didn't want to like the impala but after owning it for a little over 2 years, I absolutely love it! its been reliable, I don't maintain it just change the oil every 5,000-7,000 miles, currently has 88,XXX miles, It has been a great car, Only ha 1 problem with it, Just a faulty tire pressure sensor that they replaced for about $100. I would defiantly recommend this vehicle. 5 stars in my book!


Favorite Features

I love the HUGE trunk! fits my 2 15" subs and still has plenty of room!


Suggested Improvements

Wish it went as fast as the speedometer says, "140mph" Mine reads on the message board "Speed limited to 112mph"

2009 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My dad has a 2005 Impala, with a V-6. It gets better gas mileage than the 2009, has more head room, has more shoulder room, more room through out the vehicle, I can clean the windshield in his, but this piece of junk. The rook line is lower, I bump my head while driving, entering or exiting the vehicle on the door seal area. I am only 6ft tall. With the stupid roof line being lower, objects, people and vehicles disappear behind the center review mirror when corenering.


Favorite Features

Hey dummies I love the lack of insulation and the free road noise I get, way to go Garbage Motors Oh yeah thinks for the small cheap foam in the seat too, much appreciated.

2009 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After owning American, Japanese, Swedish and German automobiles, I unexpectedly purchased a 2009 Impala sitting on the dealer's showroom floor. The discount (25%with rebates) was too good to pass up. Included leather, moonroof, Sirrius radio, full power, traction control and 4 wheel disc brakes, remote start, upgraded alloy wheels. After 23,000 miles with only routine maintenance, the car has been great. According to the computer, we have averaged 25 mpg (29-31 on the highway). The trunk is huge and with the rear seat down is like a mid sized wagon. Reasonably smooth and quiet, has not changed since new. Would definitely recommend as a used car, particulary if under power train warranty.


Favorite Features

Comfortable cabin, huge trunk, easy fold rear seats, Sirrius radio, MILEAGE for a large car. Inexpensive to own and operate.


Suggested Improvements

None for this vehicle.
