Great car - value and comfort
By TCD on


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


I've always been a Toyota guy (celicas and camry) but this car changed my mind. As soon as I drove it, I loved it. The front bench seat is so comfy and roomy. No bucket seats that usually restrict my legs and you feel closer to the passenger with no divider (I guess that only matters if you like the passenger). The ride is smooth - soft without being too "floaty" like the big chevy boats of the past. I love the steering on this car, very responsive. The 3.4 base engine has enough power when you need it and gets surprisingly good mileage for a big car. You can see how safe the car is when you look under the hood. Major bracing and crumple features. I got the black with spoiler and sunroof

Best Features

Very comfortable smooth ride on long trips Huge trunk Superb sound system, crisp and powerful - well above the average factory stereo Great steering and brakes (4 wheel disc) In black, this car makes an older guy look respectable, yet almost cool Comfy front bench seat few repairs -reliable

Worst Features

Some issues featured in other reviews: Speedometer occasionally going to zero, and then works again (gauge unit is common problem in impala, but can be replaced) Very low front clearance, (but never any damage due to heavy steel cage under there) stronger headlights
