2006 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my 3rd Chevy Impala. I am normally a truck type of girl, but in 2000 my husband took me to see a red Impala LS at 9pm on my birthday! I fell in love with it, bought it next day. I then up graded to a fully loaded LS in 2002 (also red) with sunroof and all extras. In 2005 he talked me into a GMC crew cab tk, that lasted until I drove a 2006 Impala LTZ (white this time...didnt like red that year) bought it in June '06. Absolutely love it. I have taken it on road trips to Portland, OR, several trips to Branson, MO and at least 3 to Wichita, Ks. Car now has 14500 miles and still rides awsome. Note... K&N airfilter helped with my gas mileage and take off quite a bit.


Best Features

Remote start, Bose radio, heated mirrors and seats. Love the 3.9. The large trunk is great for my traveling. extra storage under seats


Worst Features

Cup holders in rear of console for backseat passengers when there are 3 people and you can't fold down center. Front/rear air and radio (for kids) would be great!

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I was looking to replace my Mazda6 with something more grown-up, safer, quieter, roomier, that had some heft to the controls. I like the more solid feeling structure the Impala provides compared to my Mazda and most Japanese cars, I don't need nor want feather weight doors that close at the slightest blowing of the wind or overbearing road noise, you the kind you only learn about from taking a roadtrip.


Best Features

Quietness, roominess, stereo with info, sat radio, standard ABS, traction control and side curtain bags, smooth powerful v6


Worst Features

Ability to lock the trunk so that your valuables are safe in the event the car is broken into and stability control.

2006 Chevrolet Impala SS 4dr Sedan (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After having put over 15,000mi on my '06 SS, I have a few amendments to make to my original review. The power from the Bose speakers is causing an obnoxious buzz in the sheet metal in back. The tire pressure monitoring system is hypersensitive and alerts me when the cold weather makes the air less dense. The grounding cables on that system have been replaced once and need it again. The seat pads have further compressed and become less comfortable causing me to buy a memory foam cushion and if it weren't for the power and looks, I would have traded at 10,000mi. I'm still impressed with the fuel economy after all these miles but I look forward to my next car which will not be a GM product


Best Features

Bose is good. Goodyear Eagles offer good snow and water traction. Car looks good with 7-window tint. Remote start is nice in Michigan winter. Acceleration and exhaust note. Good mileage: 20 to 26 mpg on 87 octane fuel.


Worst Features

GM needs to get real about their car lines. They stepped up in offering the extra warranty but why not just do it right the first time. The Silverado, Sierra, Acadia, and Outlook show promise for GM's future but I have to say that I won't be buying from GM for a while.

2006 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This was my first Impala, and man am I impressed! It has everything you can want in a car, but it also has it under the hood. On a recent trip over the weekend, we drove from LA to San Diego, went sight seeing, and drove back on 1 tank of gas. Our average was 26.75 MPG. For any of you naysayers, who owned one and it had it's issues. Name me one other car that doesn't have that problem. Made in America, and drives like a dream. Chevy has a winner here! If you are thinking of buying one, I would suggest the 3LT, it offers everything you would see in a luxury car for a affordable price.


Best Features

All of it it worth the money


Worst Features

Can you give them away.

I love it the way it is.
