2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Got "engine operating at reduced power" message and "serive stbilitrac" and "no traction control" then after 15 minutes, the car shut off. No lights, NO power brakes, no power steering. Ended up replacing the throttle body, which has an electronic sensor in it. This sensor is 3" from 800 degree farenhieght exhaust manifold so the heat may make the sensor go bad. Second time now in less than 2 years, will be an repeating problem. car has ZERO resale value. When front seats are fully pushed back, NO ONE can use the rear seats.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS Fleet 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

You'll be getting rotors every 6 months. Definitely not designed for a hilly state. This big cars has 190 horsepower. That's a joke. Transmission went out at 45k but it was under warranty. That's my selling point. It's in excellent condition with a new transmission. This car is for senior citizens.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LTZ 4dr Sedan (3.9L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my 2011 Impala used in the beginning of 2012. I got the LTZ which has all the features you could want in a car. It drives great, gas mileage is good, its comfortable for long trips. While the Camaro is still my dream car I feel that the Impala is more practical and comfortable. Back seat has a lot of space for passengers as well. Great trunk space too!


Best Features

Heated Leather seats, Bose speakers, Rich interior look.


Worst Features

Space in between seats for cup holders, could be larger. Very hard to fit two cups side by side in the middle console.

2011 Chevrolet Impala LS 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We chose this 2011 Impala over the new designed Taurus. Yes, that is right!
Why?
Taurus - sit low, can NOT see out back window due to rear seat headrests (similar in Impala), too many buttons and too much electronic gizmo stuff.
We liked the simple, easy to use instruments, console.
Very comfortable for long trips (drove from IL to FL, AR, MO, KY, TN, more in first month owned).
Now have 15,000 miles and has not missed a tick.
We purchased new the base model...it had more features than our previous car, and not need to pay more for things you don't use.
Paid $19,500 before tax...NEW.
Excellent value for the money.


Best Features

Comfort, interior (though plastic is cheap in all cars, not just impala). Simple styling and LOW COST to maintain, drive, own. It's a family car in the truest sense of the word.


Worst Features

Trunk opening and depth could use improvement, LESS electronic gizmo's such as ONstar and XM radio. We unplugged both as we have no use for them.
