"It has been a fantastic car and has given me great service (still has original engine) but it is time to look for a replacement. Engine runs a little loud and I don't have finances to maintain much longer although I feel I have taken good care of the car. I will definitely look at another Impala!"

"for a car being worth $1500, this thing is incredibly reliable, has plenty of power from the 3800, and is quite comfortable to drive. Can also get 27-28 MPG on the highway, and it drives like it's brand new."

"From studying this vehicle and others in its class, I can say that the 3.4L didn't hold up as well. They got 130K-160K. My 3.8L is going strong at 220,000. It's comfortable, handles pretty well, holds a ton of stuff including 16 ft. wooden boards. Weaknesses are an annoying noise inside cabin, front doors that don't stay in place on a hill and close on you, a bit of static electricity and back safety belts that over-tighten. Only mechanical issues in 220k include power steering (in part because PS dipstick is located in an impossible location) and Water Pump. Just got 4th set of breaks and 4th set of tires. Ready for tune-up #2. Love my sunroof, love the touch dials although the paint wore off. I love the storage in the vehicle. Power connect in the front is poorly placed. Very easy to spill into the car. Yes, I've done it several times. The pick up of the 3.8L is a tad slow but to be expected for gas saving. Average 23.5 MPG."

"I am very lucky to be the owner of this Magnifecent Auto and very lucky since only 4,000 + were made.Also it was made in Canada and before Goverment Motors took it over under O'bama. I will never again buy a GM car since over 80% of GM automobiles and Parts are made in CHINA.My next Car would be a TOYOTA CAMARY since 100% parts and factories are her in the U.S.A.It is an all American made in the U.S.A."
