Never buying another GM vehicle again...
By workingdogdoc on


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


I bought a 2005 Impala as a program car that year and it had 28K.
It's 2011 and now has 106K. Total crapper. While it's not a bad car to drive around in the city or highway and has pretty generous space, the reliability has totally put me off GM cars for good. I seem to have at least 1-2 major repairs on it per year and my next big one is coming up like clockwork.
Woohoo...water heater pump, power steering pump, now fuel pump have all gone out.
The heating system also failed. The transmission has a tendency to slip.
The instrument cluster has all reset themselves at random intervals, then gone back to being fine.
My husband drives a same year Camry and it's night and day more reliable!

Best Features

Decently spacious and comfortable. Decent handling.

Worst Features

The reliability is horrible. Never again, GM, never again. I'll be switching to Honda, Toyota, or Subaru most likely.
