Thorn in my flesh!
By Laura on


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


Not many people are in the market these days specifically for an '01 Impala, but for the poor soul that might be considering this car a viable option, stop. I loved this car when I bought it and it ran perfectly for the first couple years. Then, at 50K miles, I had to rebuild the transmission. Downhill from there. The security system wiring is a mess, had to replace catalytic converter, oxygen sensors, head gaskets, fuel intake manifold, exhaust filter...on and on! Last Sunday, the drivers side window fell unprovoked down into the door and the power window motor will have to be replaced. But, I will not spend one more dime on this piece and not on any other GM, for that matter. Awful.

Best Features

I have always loved the body style, and the interior has held up beautifully. For the month I can drive it in between regular visits to the auto shop, it's a smooth ride with decent gas mileage.

Worst Features

GM should quit making cars. They're bad at their job and won't admit to manufacturing errors.
