I can't think of anything.

Very Nice Car, Put In A $800 Sound System, And I Am Not Planning On Getting Something New Until This — Perfomance- Very nice car for the 3.8. Crusing around 80-85 is very easy, around 2200 rpms. No problem reaching and crusing at that speed with 30 mpg. Decent acceleration for mid sized sedan, 10 yr old and still has 9-10 sec. 0-60 speed.

Reliable, Safe, Powerful Sedan — My wife and I purchased this car from our uncle. He purchased the car from his fire chief where he is a volunteer firefighter, for his son's first car; fire chief's mother purchased car brand new and put 58,000 miles on it it 11 years. We purchased vehicle upon returning from work overseas in November 2012 and were amazed at the condition of the car for being a 2001. It literally ran like new. We have had to replace the original battery and replaced brake system in late 2013. My wife likes it because it's reliable and safe to ride around with our 14 month old son. She also likes it because when we had snow and ice in February 2013 in Nashville she started sliding on road which initiated traction control and she stopped sliding immediately.

Roomy and vroomy!

Cons

She seems a little heavy.

Good Girl! — My Impala has been very good to me. I have had no major problems to repair, she has been very consistent. This car has great pick-up, smooth ride and a joy to drive. I wasn't to thrilled about the rear lights until I bought her. Her outer appearance is as lovely as her interior. I must say she's not a heavy drinker but she likes to throw back a few. Overall I am satisfied with her overal quality.

Cons

Crappy Interior

2001 Impala Ls — Performance- Acceleration is nice V6 with over 3L is good Torque, New Brakes so it stops quick, Handles good New Tires lots of Grip. Build Quality- Top Trim it has stalled a couple times, but those are cheap repairs. Appearance- I like the exterior alot, the interior dash and steering wheel styling sucks, GM is a little behind on styling, always has been. Cost of Ownership- 18/25 MPG, basically new Fun Factor- The Engine if you ask me is a little ruggish, but i have been used to driving a 1.4L V4 so having a 3.4V6 is alot of fun, all that torque is awesome, and i love the sound of the 3.8LV6. Its a good buy for the money, and The 3.4LV6 is said to be able to go up to 200k miles easy, whilist the 3.8LV6 can go up to 250K i have been told, so its worth the money and decent.

Pros

My 2006 Chevy Impala LT : Reliable, handles very well, smooth quiet ride, stylish, roomy, good trunk space, powerful ac/heat, combined Hwy and City I get 28 MPGs

Cons

Only complaint about this car is the quality of the headlight assembly, mine has de-compartmentalize and the chrome finish on the assembly has been peeling off. Hasn't affected function but is an eye sore.

A Smooth Quiet Ride Wgreat Handling. — I've had an excellent experience with my Impala and would recommend it to any one looking for a 4 door American made sedan. The interior is nice, Chevy did very well with the dash design and the over all flow of the interior. Additionally its roomy I'm 6'2 275 lbs and I fit in the driver seat comfortably. Lastly it handles exceptionally and does pretty good on gas.

Do Not Buy — it had constant issues. the couple that sold it to me had the transmission, both front wheel bearings, and the alternator replaced and also had the intake gasket leak fixed which i would later find out is a common problem with impalas. they had replaced a lot of the mechanics of the car. what else could break right? three months after i bought it the cam shaft snapped it two. i replaced the whole engine later to find out that this one too had a bad intake gasket. never got that fixed for money reasons. i also had to once again replace the passenger side front wheel bearing. then the radiator sprung a leak so i replaced that as well. all about a month before i decided to sell it. to make a long story short i ended up totaling the car therefore i didnt have to try to sell it.

I Would Buy Another In A Heartbeat — Performance - acceleration, braking, handling are all excellent Appearance - both interior and exterior styling are great gas mileage is excellent ( avg 8.5L / 100km hwy, 11/100 city), maintenance very low Overall it is a fun and practical car to drive, very reliable and easy on gas. It is very roomy inside for passengers and cargo. For a full size car, it is very cheap to operate.

Silver & Black. — Fun yet practical daily driver. Good gas mileage, good looking, and dependable. Maintenance costs starting to get the better of my wallet but I like to keep my vehicles in good shape and ready to go. This one's a keeper.
