Bad Brakes and Poor Service!

2008 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


See alot of happy SS buyers here. Must be a different car. Had a 2002 Impala, wish we had it back. Car has been in the shop 2 times since bought. Going on second week. SUBSTANDARD BRAKES that are very front heavy! DEALER CUT BRAKE ROTORS TO FIX> 200 MILES ON CAR! Open rear windows if test driving and u will find heavy earsplitting wind noise. GAS ECONOMY MUCH LOWER than listed. XM SATELITE is not FREE, PRICE IS IN STICKER! Motor runs rough and motor peripherals whine upon starting when cold. Rear leg room very limited! SHOCKS substandard, feel like used making for bad turning. Phantom clunk in front end. GM says nothing in writing, stuck with car. Get it in writing!

Best Features

MP3 capable radio.

Worst Features

BRAKE SYSTEM. For the layman, brakes are not warrantied, front brakes are too heavy hitting resulting in early front pad, rotor, and caliper failure. Owner is responsible for this if not caught early! Lemon Law is 3 times for same occurance or 30 days out of service within a year for all occurances.
