Did Edmunds test the same car I bought?
By David Rogers on


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


I don't understand Edmunds' beration of
this vehicle. My Impala has been an
absolute pleasure to own. We owned a
1990 Linc. Town Car prior to our 2002
Impala and had nothing but trouble with
it. NO domestic can rival the Linc's
air-ride, but the Impala comes very
close. A more sporty ride, the Impala
has better handling & does not "float"
at speed as the Linc. does. We've had
only one problem, the sealed headlamp
module on the driver's side failed &
moisture got into the unit. Other than
that the car has performed flawlessly.
If you are looking for a solid, 6
passenger vehicle, with luxury car ride
and feel, at a reasonable price, buy
the Impala.

Best Features

Great gas mileage & loves 87 octane; excellent ride & front/side visibility; controls layout is sensible; the vehicle is easy to enter & exit, & is very roomy. A pleasure on trips with the family as you can load the big trunk for a week & have room to spare.

Worst Features

Rear vision could be better; std. 6 seems underpowered(on the low-end)but may be trans. gearing; front air- dam drags the ground far too often; steering is a bit stiff at cruise; rear tail lights are reminiscent of earlier Impalas & date the 2002's styling; trunk opening is too high.
