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


I wanted an Impala and now I don't. It handles great but the transmission likes to slip a lot. The starter sticks for a few seconds after it has already been started. Have to jump the battery every 4-6 weeks because it likes to randomly die. Alternator shop said it is not the alternator, most likely an electrical short. I have never replaced anything electrical on it so I myself didn't short it out. Engine is sluggish. Also the heater doesn't work half the time. Black trim on outside is already faded. Otherwise the rest is fine but as much trouble as I have had, I will never buy one again.

Best Features

Great sounding factory stereo, plenty of room and trunk space.

Worst Features

Fix problems with the starters, heater, transmission, paint/trim paint. Since I don't know why it has an electrical short, I don't know if I should blame that on Chevy or previous owner.
