Used 2001 Chevrolet Impala Consumer Reviews
This car has had coolant problems, two transmission rebuilds and warped rotors; all within two years and 38,000 miles of easy city and highway driving.
I drive a lot of miles... I'm retiring my Suburban with 327K miles from daily use. So when I went looking for vehicles, SUV's were first on the list. With the current political situation and the potential for rising gas prices, I looked at the Impala. Primarily for fuel mileage, but also because it has a roomy interior. I purchased this car with 37.4K miles on it. I'm averaging 28+ mpg, at about a 70/30 highway/city mix. There is no indication of the car's age in performance, appearance, or operation. It's a very comfortable cruiser with ample room for 5 adults. The trunk is huge. I miss my Sub, but not at the gas pump.
Purchased this car new, just turned 170,000 miles on it! One major repair during this time which was normal wear other than that just had a problem with the sensor in the wheel for traction control which can be disengaged. This car has been wonderful. I am in sales and drive every day and then it's the family car on the weekends with two kids and the dog. It's comfy for us and afforable. I'm looking at getting a new car, figure it's about time but can't bare to even think of trading this one in as it's still going strong and while I would like something different just for a change, it's hard not to buy another Impala since this has been so great. Oh, got the bigger V-6, sales rep suggested.
All systems work well. Much better all 'round vehicle than competition; i.e. Camry,etc., etc.
