Won't buy another GM vehicle.
By md_jake on


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


Car was my first new one in over 30 years. Bought new against my usual practice of buying used. This car has the worst blind spots of any vehicle I have ever driven, including my pickup truck with a bed cap on it. I have 73k on it now and have already had to replace all four rotors once, had the bottoms of the front doors and right rear fender in the shop for rust work (under warranty) and now my AC compressor is broken ... in the middle of January of all times. Also, my stereo has never worked properly and only plays music through the rear speakers 99% of the time.I think I will trade it in while it has the most trade-in value and try a foreign car or another Ford product.

Best Features

None really, other than when it was between new-2 years old it was reliable and had no issues.

Worst Features

Do something about the horrible blind spots and make it a quality car again.
