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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Styling; Fuel Economy; Comfortable; Long trips

Cons: Engine reliability (cooling system, head gasket);

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.

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.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: handling and mileage

Cons: body style not made anymore

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very comfortable interior, nice exterior looks, decent on the luxury side, but not overboard.

Cons: I can't think of anything.

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.

Pros: All

Cons: There are none
