GM needs to do better
By craig dickinson on


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


Owned the vehicle for 4 years. Bought it with 29,000 miles on it; traded it at 90,000 miles. Great 1st two years of ownership. Comfortable back seat, great on long trips, liked the exterior styling. Interior did not hold up. Seat material started looking like an old sweater, paint on interior controls faded away, front seats squeaked endlessly etc. Started getting nickeled and dimed with 150-250 dollar repairs around 70,000 miles; tranny went out at 90k. Bottom line, the car seemed to age very poorly. Would not recommend it as a used car purchase.

Best Features

Roomy backseat. V6 engine a little sluggish around town, but great for long distance cruising; fuel economy 21 city; up to 29 mpg highway; huge trunk

Worst Features

transmission whined almost the whole time we had it- finally giving out at 90,000 miles; interior fit and finish was sub par
