2001 Chevrolet Impala Sedan 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Had this car 10 years. The big problem at first was rotors. Nothing but problems since day 1. Then it was gasket seal recall. Then it was electrical. Then at about 65,000 transmission. Now its u-joints and rattles in car like it's falling apart. The last few years its been in the shop a lot. Put over $6000 into it in last 24 months. Time to buy a different make. Been a Chevy guy all my life and bought 7 new cars. All had problems except the cavalier. Stuck very little in to them. Looking at Ford next.


Best Features

It did drive good for about the first 7000 miles.


Worst Features

Start over.

Review

Would recommend this car for someone who wants sports car but has family very comfortable good on gas 3.4 performance ok but used to driving a camaro z28. Front end needs some rebuild after 120k but not as expensive as some may say cost about $400. most cars require some rebuild after 100k so dont complain normal wear and tear. Little oil leak just damp under oil pan who ever said 600. to replace is getting ripped off easy to change. Transmission shifts great run awesome getting ready to tune up for 100k tune-up great car dependable.


Best Features

exterior design interior space.Great fuel economy.


Worst Features

Maybe rear wheel drive little more pep in 3.4.

Review

Never have I had such a great car! Every other auto I have owned; Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Toyota.. None have come close to the dependability and quality of my Impala. I'll drive this one til the wheels fall off! It's had it's share of incidents. Less than a month old the rear end was crushed (Drunk Driver hit us). It has hit two deer. Yet it keeps on chugging. Power/handling are just as good today as when we drove it off the lot 8yrs ago. Not to mention 151000 miles and still average over 30mpg! I'd buy another - but why!


Best Features

Dual Climate controls, comfort, enormous trunk space!


Worst Features

Tough to find anything to put here! Chevy should have recalled and upgraded onstar system instead of making us purchase their new satellite system.
