2003 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The Impala LS is the perfect car for the budget minded family who still likes the acceleration, safety, comfort and good gas mileage for a larger car. My car has cloth seats which was the selling point plus an average 25 mpg in a city/hwy scenario but I have gotten 30 plus on the highway at 75mph. The sound system is great and the ABS brakes and tire imflation system is standard. All this for under $13,600 makes it delightful on the pocket book and very reasonable to insure. Five can ride comfortably; although I would not want to attempt a cross country trip with that many and the trunk is large and roomy. It is not a luxury car but the price for what you get makes it very appealing.


Best Features

Overhead storage compartment and the consoles in both the front and back are great. You don't have to have annoying leather seats! Manufacturers can make leather warm in the winter but they cannot keep it from frying you in the summer. I think the lines are sleek; it looks fast, even parked.


Worst Features

Driving suspension is a bit stiff; something more robust struts might help. They need to make the rear and sideview mirrors larger. The blind spot on the drivers side is poor and the spoiler blocks some of your vision out the rear window. I do not care for the window washers in the wipers.

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is a great car. It comes with the LS sport package(Corvette tail lights, carbon-fibre interior trim, little Impala logos on the door panels on the inside, shiny exaust tip, 16" sporty 5 spoke wheels and lower front fascia extensions. The interior is really big, even though I like small cars better.


Best Features

Heated seats are really nice when it's cold. The Driver Information system is cool. I love sunroofs. And only needing regular fuel is a plus.


Worst Features

V8 power, rear wheel or all wheel drive, power seatbacks, lumbar on both seats, rear heated seats, more power

2003 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Owned the car for approx 7 months and
so far my wife an I love the car. The
Chevy 3.8L ROCKS!!! There's nothing
like 150 km/hr with the air blasting
and getting 27+ mpg. This car blows
away the 3.8L Ford Taurus I couldn't
wait to get rid of. It's a great ride
in both the city and on the
highway.


Best Features

Effortless 3.8L. Gas mileage, acceleration. Smooth ride, plenty of leg room in front and back, trunk, 16" tires.


Worst Features

Correct the wind noise from sunroof and back windows (when front windows are up). Better stereo.

Review

This car is so above and beyond what I
expected. I test drove SUVs and Sedans
at different price levels. This was a
clear winner. It drives like a dream.
The suspension is like driving a Caddy.
It accelerates without jerking. It
looks great, great gas mileage. This
is a great deal for the price. THIS IS
A TEST DRIVE MUST!


Best Features

It handles really well and is such a smooth drive. This is saying a lot! I live in Michigan...pot holes every inch of the road.


Worst Features

I wish I would have requested this car with Onstar. I would suggest sales people to make sure to ask once you've decided on the vehicle.
