the sky is the limit if you don't take it off road, don't GUN it. perform scheduled maintainence and basically respect it and treat it like your baby, not your whore~

i've heard of the engine lasting 300k with good care. a Xmission can last up to 160k miles with proper fluid and filter changes(in my experience).

Are you talking gas mileage or engine life? As far as gas mileage it all depends on a perfectly maintained engine and what platform, base, LS or SS and there is not a lot of difference there, low end is 16-17 miles per gal. city and 26 - 27 Highway. Mileage life of an engine depends on a lot of factors. Mainly how well maintained it has been and what engine, they had the 3.4L in the base and 3.8 in the SS.

Ok heres my story on my impala 2005 base it at 55k miles(now 244100) well maintaining change oil myself did have a few radiator replacement thanks to the corrosive dexcool.thanks to a moron mechanic i busted my head gasket and screwed my engine after a rebuilt on engine 3 yrs ago this car does not give up its gonna be hard giving it away i travel 100m roundway daily i love this car but its time to let it fly chevys are just not like toyotas it will be expensive if i keep clocking miles my answer to your questions i say 300.000 miles (well maintained)

I have a 2005 Impala. I bought mine in 2008 with 44k miles. I now have 220k miles on it and have experienced no major problems. Original motor and tranny. Over the years, I have replaced a head gasket, exhaust, wheel bearing, tie rods, and the security system. Also basic maintenance, oil changes and filter, fuel filter, air filter, brakes, rotors, fluids. Things runs great. I expect it to last all the way to 300k miles.
