"I love the look and the drive of the Impala. BUT this car has had more issues than any other car I have ever owned. The biggest issues are electrical. First thing is the power sunroof quit. Then the radiator fans. then the auto darkening mirror. Then the interior lights. Then the headlight switch. Twice. Then the fuel tank sending unit. Twice. Now the battery goes dead from a intermittent draw. This does not include the other mechanical issues. If the local dealership did not outshine all the others I would have gone crazy."

Probably the most under-rated car on the road.

Cons: "Other than the wiper switch, none at all."

"The impala is used by police for a reason. It is bargain priced, handles and brakes like a sports car, gets fair gas mileage, and has American reliability. It is capable on the highway as well, with a top speed of 140 mph. The car is also incredible in snow provided you have decent tires, of course. If you have one, keep it. If you want one, you will not be disappointed. Parts are cheap and plentiful. The only issue on these cars is some of the electronics (my wiper combo switch sometimes would not activate the turn signal, for example)."

"Have had my 2000 Impala for 12 years. Original engine and tranny; runs smooth and quiet. Some rust, but otherwise body in good shape. Dependable. Great in New York winters. Well worth the money. I bought this as a factory buy-back at a real bargain. Best car I have ever owned."

"It's been a great work car, great mileage on road trips, even with high mileage, I get about 32/22. Roomy enough for teenagers in the back seat. Plenty of storage. I've driven the new Impala, & don't like it as well. I'll keep driving it until the wheels fall off."

"I bought this car a few years ago with about 140,000 miles on it. It started off great, but after the first year I had it things started to go bad. At first it was minor things like new tires, new battery, but then I started having problems with the security lock and I'd be stranded in a parking lot for about a good 15 minutes until the security lock was up. I also began to have problems with the A/C. I believe I had to get that fixed twice within a year of both times. Then the coolant started leaking. I've had to take it in at least 3-4 times to get the leaks fixed and eventually the prices started to pile up too high that now I'm looking for a more reliable car. On the other hand it is spacious and does have a comfortable interior as well as a decent trunk space, but other than that it's been nothing but one big money guzzler for me. Maybe I just got the black sheep of the Impalas. All I know is that I would hesitate to get another one."

"Bought this car off the lot in 96 and have owned it ever since. It has been amazing and is still is in great condition. Have had no major repairs and it still gets great comments on the color. I love the 5 Star Crash rating and is one of the reasons I bought it so my kids would be safe. Excellent choice!!"
