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

more standard features for the car you "pay" for. quality "issues"

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

Suggested Improvements

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.

Review

I rented this car when it was almost brand new, only had 300 miles on it. I drove it for about 500 miles. I wasn't very impressed by it. The gas pedal was extremely hard to push. The side mirrors are triangular in shape with less surface area than the oval ones I am used to. The interior is made of cheap plastic and the wood trim just emphasizes the car's cheapness. But overall, the car drove pretty well. I got about 30 mpg on highway driving. The steering was very responsive and the brakes stopped on the dime. Not a bad car, but it needs to improve in the areas I mentioned above.


Suggested Improvements

Make oval side mirrors, upgrade the plastic used inside, make the gas pedal lighter

Review

I was given my 09 impala as a graduation gift from my grandmother just a few months ago and it was a perfectly fine car until last week, i'm not sure if other people have these problems but I do and i makes me wanna sell the car at this point. First sometimes the key won't turn i have to physically move the steering wheel and push up in the shifter thing behind the steering wheel and then it will start, and the other problem i experience is that if I am waiting at a light or a stop sign for more then 10 seconds and i go to press the gas the break pedal sticks and the car revs up and burns gas. And when it dooes this the check engine light comes on for a split second, anyone else like this?


Favorite Features

Style and space inside of the car


Suggested Improvements

Nothing so far i like the features of the car.
