Runs good....for a couple of years

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


I had my Impala worry free for about 3 years. Then I had to replace the head gaskets at 56K miles, which were about $800. Then the tie rods went, which were about $200 a piece. Now its the security system, for a second time. I replaced the ignition switch in August and it was fine until January. Then I replaced the switch and the cylinder but it still wont start, and waiting 10 minutes for the sec. system to reset does not work. Now its just sitting in my driveway looking dumb while my '88 Oldsmobile with 255k on the odometer starts fine every day. I loved my car when I first got it, but now i just want to get rid of it, and I am still making payments on a driveway fixture.

Best Features

Looks, room, trunk space, V-6 engine

Worst Features

Recall the car for the security system and the head gaskets, too frequent of a problem for too many Impala owners
