2004 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We had purchased new in 2004, On the most part I like my Impala. Drives on the highway very well. The interior could be better designed IE:parts used fill cheap, Cup holders are on the arm rest in between driver and front passenger placing a cup of coffee is very awkward, Interior lighting is not placed to help you see, Map lights are built into the mirror and you have to lean forward to see the map. The radio has problems with the reception, I am told it is because of the back window defroster. The suspension could have been better designed We are on our third set of tires, Second set of rotors front and back, Replaced the heater blower, Alignment each time the tires were changed.


Best Features

Looks of cars exterior, Drives well on highways, Has good gas mileage for a car this size.


Worst Features

Use better quality parts, Most of my issues with this care are because of the poor quality of the vehicle.

2004 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my 2004 Chevrolet Impala in 2008. I was reluctant to buy it because of the intake gasket problems on the 3.4 litre V6 engines GM made. So far I haven't had any problems with it. What I love about this car is its simplicity, and comfort. It has responsive acceleration, and the controls are simple and easy to use. The steering is tight, and the car overall is solid. I bought it with 57000 miles on it. I now have 98000 miles on it. I have been impressed so far.


Best Features

Acceleration,simple to use controls. The seating is comfortable, and it is a real pleasure to drive. The gas mileage on an average is 33 hi-way, and 26 city. Awesome for a V6..


Worst Features

Nothing to speak of

2004 Chevrolet Impala SS Supercharged 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)


Review

I purchased this car about 4 years ago. It had about 35k on it and I purchased an extended warranty for another 35k. I have a black one and the paint job is really cheap looking. IF you have tinted windows, you can't get good reception from the AM radio. After owning the vehicle 1 year we had to replace the radiator, fortunately it was covered under the warranty I had purchased, otherwise that would have cost an about $1500.00 to fix. I can hear a clunk in the steering column, which might be a lose linkage somewhere, but disconcerting. The vehicle and plummeted in value since I purchased it.


Best Features

Leather seats, get up and go with the supercharger


Worst Features

Better quality, better paint, a radio that works with tinted windows.

Review

We loved the car overall until the last year. It was a lease car. Most of the time when we got the car up to 50mph the car began to shake and lunge and lurch like it was hurting for gas. We took the car into several car dealers to fix it and they thought we were crazy. We did find one dealer that could see it, but was never able to get it to do it at the right time for the computer to tell there what to fix. Well, after the lease we were sad to give it up, but some poor person probably has it now.


Best Features

the power


Worst Features

dealers need to start listening the the owners that are driving the car on a regular basis to fix problems.
