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


Review

I have had issues with the security sensor going hay wire, I have installed 2 water pumps in the past 2 yrs, breaks are an annual thing because they are being warped somehow, my battery keeps dying due to some kind of short that has not been found so I had to purchase a battery charger and charge my battery every 2 weeks to make sure I can crank the car and now my transmission is slipping and slamming when I reverse. This car rides smooth however between my annual expenses I have had more bad days then good with this car. Once I get the transmission fixed I am getting rid of this car unless I can get rid of it before then.


Best Features

Trunk Space and Speaker Quality


Worst Features

GM needs to recall the entire car and refund the owners who have spent so much money to repair the vehicles. These vehicles are crap!

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


Review

I bought this car in 2004 new with maybe 500-1000 miles on it. They had to replace the dashboard, carpet, starter and thermostat while it was still under warranty. Now that it is not and I own it, it is falling apart. I have just replaced the thermostat and now they are saying it may need a new radiator.


Best Features

I like the size and the trunk is a great but not worth the hassle.


Worst Features

I have no idea where to stop because I don't know where my repairs are going to end. I guess that is why I see so many of them on the road, apparently GM was giving them away!

Review

Security Light comes on and car won't start for 10 min. Started once a month now 2 times a day. Talked to Chevy but no solution and no hope for a recall. Looked on-line for solution and found many people with same problem. They only have temp solution for $800 or more. This problem is a safety issue and needs to be recalled. Are you listening Chevy?


Best Features

Good radio but wont play MP3 as advertised. CD's come out very hot when ejected.


Worst Features

Recall and Fix the Security issue.

Review

The car had a nice feel like a older full sized car. The quality was horrible i have never had a car that required more repairs and was on a downhill slide then that car. Fuel regulator, wheel studs, water pump, transmission, etc... The resale value was horrible, just recently got rid of it and purchased a nissan.


Best Features

The ride when i first purchased it was nice like a comfortable full sized car.


Worst Features

Quality, never have i had a vehicle turn into junk before my eyes like this vehicle. I guess that's why this style and vehicle are no longer are offered from GM.
