2005 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car has been a nightmare since I bought it. The transmission slipped the first day I had it. I had a to replace the converter, thermostat (5 times), had the entire system flushed over 50 times, and the blower motor resistor 2 times, not including the water pump, and O2 sensor. It is pretty bad that the car is constantly overheating, with no heat in the car. When the blower motor resistor goes you have to disconnect the battery because their is no other way to turn off the fan. It will continue to blow even if the key is out. It will not stop even after hours.


Best Features

I honestly do not have a favorite feature in this car because I have been putting a ton of money into the constant problems that this car has been having.


Worst Features

I will never buy another Chevy as long as long as I live! Honestly it is the worst car ever and they should get rid of them all!

2005 Chevrolet Impala 4dr Sedan (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This car is honestly the best vehicle I have ever owned.
I purchased it in mid-2009 with 52,000 miles on it and it now has 95,000 miles.
The only problem I have had thus far was with the instrument panel, but that was fixed under warranty.
It has been 100% reliable, always starts, always runs well.
I have run full synthetic oil in it since day 1.
I have taken this car on several long trips and it is super comfy and has gotten 31 mpg driving at 75 mph.
The power is substantial, but I will opt for the 3.8 next time around.


Overall this car is hard to beat.
Power, comfort, reliability, and great gas mileage for a huge car! A+


Best Features

Awesome gas mileage! Built in amplifier makes the system rock right out of the box!


Worst Features

Hmm. I would say I'm totally satisfied with this car and the only thing I would change would be to increase the resell value because this car is worth it's weight in gold!

Review

I just purchased my 2005 Chevy Impala SS. I've only had it a short time and really love it. I'm an enthusiast and this car meets most of my high standards. It has plenty of room for my 2 kids, huge truck, and it's a great car for a 45 year old dad. I bought it with 31,000 miles and have to say this Impala is of few that are truly worthy of the legendary SS badge dating back 50 years. if you find one of these with low miles, grab it, they are now hard to find and will be future collections. Bravo GM you did this one right.


Best Features

Handling, Performance, Creature comforts. Love On Star.


Worst Features

Improve fuel mileage. Buyer beware this car does not meet up to today's standards as far as efficiency. 16 mpg is the best I can do with combined driving.
