Head gasket problem?
By LD on


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


Bought one owner 56 K miles one owner, Rides drives great. Power 3500 V6 is well matched to car.MPG great in town 20's highway 29 and up. Runs quietly handles well tire wear good so far.Long trips do well. Over all like very well.Past car 3800 V6 Olds little more power.Should used it not the 3500 V6.Its a proven engine,Now 58K miles head gasket seems to be seeping antifreeze. does this problem have a history ? May need a new head & gasket !And rear elec door activator needs replaced already.$300 WOW $$ Hope have not got a bad car I do like it well.Had hoped it would be last car I needed i'm 72 years old now.Thinking should run over 120 K miles for me . I pray it will.

Best Features

Worst Features

Cup holders could be better placed. 12 volt acc outlet should be on dash some where not in counsel, Needs rear cup holders. ( I don't smoke but need ash trays to store my goodies.)
