The worse decision I ever made.
By officernate on


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


I bought this car brand new and spent the first 12 months in and out of dealerships to fix, repair, replace, or other wise upgrade something that has broken or been recalled.
Since then, I have found out that the brake rotors are smaller then they should be for a car this size, the A/C unit has several issues dealing with the compressor clutch, and blend door actuators (keep a stock of those if you have this car.)
The steering is horrible and I've had multiple issues with the power steering (hoses, rack and pinion, etc.)
The transmission will live only to its warrenty and no longer.
Be prepared to get a new one after 75,000 miles.
It leaks oil like no other car I've ever driven.

Best Features

I had some good things to say about this car a while ago, but since then I'm pretty fed up and have absolutely nothing good to advise.

Worst Features

Scrap all plans on this vehicle and and start over!
