I bought my 2001 car brand new
in Nov 2000.
Within the 1st year the driver seat heater went out - so had that replaced.
Since then, I have had to have my catalytic converter replaced which now as I have been doing research found out it would have been covered under a Special Policy Adjustment - Catalytic Converter #05551 -(09/14/2005)
Models: 2001-02 CHEVROLET IMPALA, MONTE CARLO EQUIPPED WITH 3.4L (RPO LA1 - VIN E) OR 3.8L (RPO L36 - VIN K) V6 ENGINE.
Which surprisingly GM didn't bother to send.
Now 4 years later, my catalytic converter needs to be replaced again.
My security light has been on since 50k miles and I've had to replace my 4th gear shaft and the list goes on.

I bought this car and so far has been nothing but fun fun fun. The car had 68,000 miles even though the car is almost 10 years old, but when I say well kept! No problems so far except for the warning orange light for tire pressure that stays on which I'm used to now. I would love for Chevy to build more SS's such as the Monte Carlo and the Impala for 2011.
