Pros

3800 V6. Great on Gas. Solid performance. Comfortable on long trips. Very reliable, have a friend who is a salesmen and puts over 30K per year on his cars and has owned 3 of these. Decent stock speakers.

Cons

Typical GM rust areas (if you live in snowy states) being the rockers, fenders etc. Best to prevent this early than to try and fix it afterward.

I think GM make their power window motors out of silly putty. They always have issues and get weak much earlier than other vehicles.

Reliable. Cost Effective. Enjoyable Ride — If you can find a model with the 3800 engine and lower mileage, you're sure to have a vehicle that the engine will outlast all the other parts on it. They ride extremely comfortable and feel very solid. There is an average amount of road noise. Minor hiccups and repairs along the way, this vehicle is still an excellent choice.

Nice Daily Driver With Good Power — I test drove it for a friend and ended up wanting one for myself. It has extremely nice interior features as well as great performance. It was the first sedan that has ever pinned me back in the seat! I would recommend it to anyone who wants an affordable sedan with nice features, but who also likes to have a bit of fun out of their daily driver.

American Muscle-style Fused With Nice Interior — I have owned this car for a year now, and the only problem we've had with it was the catalytic converter went out a few months ago. However, the engine has 133k miles on it and it still roars when i want it to. I love the leather interior and heated seats.

Pros

Acceleration, Low amount of problems( very low cost probs), Not ugly for its Generation.

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.

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.

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.

It's Just A Base Model. — If you are gonna buy an impala, go for the LS. It looks better, has mag wheels not caps, a spoiler and a sunroof. It also has a larger engine.

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.

My Uncle's Impala By Krista
