Just Got It, Still Learning — One of our favorite models of Impala as far as exterior styling. It runs good on the open road. Suspension / handling is a little mushy on the base trim level. Engine reliability has long been an issue with these. Apparently the gaskets and coolant were incompatible at the beginning of the run, so the gaskets on the intake and cylinder heads deteriorate over time (just beyond the warranty period). After driving it home, it was puking bubbles into the coolant reservoir. That usually indicates a head gasket gone bad somewhere.

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.

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.

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.

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.

My Imp — Like most new cars every thing is packing to tight it makes it hard to work on most things. i had to replace the hazard flasher. which isn't a big deal in most cars but gm decided to put it behind the dash panel so i had to tear out the entire dash panel to get at the the relay

My Car — Built like a tank, drives smooth. Made for cops, but driven my me. Has plenty of power for a 3 cylinder engine. My first car and most likely to be the last owner of it. Can't go wring here. Great car.

Good For Soccer Moms, But Other Than That... No — My car is WAY too big, it gets horrible gas mileage, and it's extremely ugly, but it is very loud, and it's reliable. It is very heavy, therfore slow and doesn't corner well. I wouldn't recommend an impala to anyone. I can't wait to get a new car.
