2009 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my 2009 impala lt2 in 5-09. It has been a nightmare took it off the lot at 20 miles before i hit a 1000 miles took it back because it wasnt holding air in the tires. And now it has 88,000 miles with going on putting the 13 set of rotors on it. I took gm to court and only receive $3500.00 with warranty on rotors till 100,000 miles but every 3000 to 5000 miles im getting new rotors. my suggestion do not buy. sad part about it gm dont take care of their retirees my whold family works for them and they didnt do anything about it.

2009 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased my 2009 Impala LT 3.5L V6 Flex Fuel when i had to give up my 2007 Tahoe LTZ, I have no regrets! At first I didn't want to like the impala but after owning it for a little over 2 years, I absolutely love it! its been reliable, I don't maintain it just change the oil every 5,000-7,000 miles, currently has 88,XXX miles, It has been a great car, Only ha 1 problem with it, Just a faulty tire pressure sensor that they replaced for about $100. I would defiantly recommend this vehicle. 5 stars in my book!


Best Features

I love the HUGE trunk! fits my 2 15" subs and still has plenty of room!


Worst Features

Wish it went as fast as the speedometer says, "140mph" Mine reads on the message board "Speed limited to 112mph"

2009 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My dad has a 2005 Impala, with a V-6.
It gets better gas mileage than the 2009, has more head room, has more shoulder room, more room through out the vehicle, I can clean the windshield in his, but this piece of junk.

The rook line is lower, I bump my head while driving, entering or exiting the vehicle on the door seal area.
I am only 6ft tall.

With the stupid roof line being lower, objects, people and vehicles disappear behind the center review mirror when corenering.


Best Features

Hey dummies I love the lack of insulation and the free road noise I get, way to go Garbage Motors Oh yeah thinks for the small cheap foam in the seat too, much appreciated.


Worst Features

Take the crayons away from the 3M's = Mindless Marketing Morons

2009 Chevrolet Impala LT 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After owning American, Japanese, Swedish and German automobiles, I unexpectedly purchased a 2009 Impala sitting on the dealer's showroom floor. The discount (25%with rebates) was too good to pass up. Included leather, moonroof, Sirrius radio, full power, traction control and 4 wheel disc brakes, remote start, upgraded alloy wheels. After 23,000 miles with only routine maintenance, the car has been great. According to the computer, we have averaged 25 mpg (29-31 on the highway). The trunk is huge and with the rear seat down is like a mid sized wagon. Reasonably smooth and quiet, has not changed since new. Would definitely recommend as a used car, particulary if under power train warranty.


Best Features

Comfortable cabin, huge trunk, easy fold rear seats, Sirrius radio, MILEAGE for a large car. Inexpensive to own and operate.


Worst Features

None for this vehicle.

2009 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Driving this car is fun, Do not confuse the suspension on this car with that of the LS or the LT. Since I purchased this car I find myself taking more travel liberties and looking forward to the long drives. Acceleration is perfect with the active fuel 3.9 engine. I average 36 mpg on the highway AND that was manually calculated, not from the on-board computer (if I don't hot dog it). never less than 23 in town! I have only been to the dealer for maintenance and with 30k and no failures I am impressed and recommend this to anyone who wants some fun, reliability and great fuel mileage!


Best Features

Sunroof, I pod interface, 18" wheels, active fuel management, huge trunk, Auto lights, Reliability, Yes reliability is a feature! most vehicles will not go 30k without some kind of failure.


Worst Features

I tend to get more engine noise than I think should be expected, the engine compartment is a little thin on insulation! to be fair I do have sensitive hearing. The steering wheel controls are cumbersome at most tilt levels of the steering wheel. better cup holders!
