"I have recently been searching for a new car to replace my first car, and I have probably come across a dozen Chevrolet Impala's ranging from 2002 - 2005, and they have been consistently similar. I joke that I always liked Chevy's... until I could drive. I tried the Malibu's but nobody could sell them because they were recalled, and I tried the Impala's because of their reputation, but I was disappointed every time. I drove one with 97k miles on it, drove nice, until it hit an incline, then it was pedal to the floor, and only reaching 35 mph. With countless other occasions, the best one was when I met a nice honest man at a dealership (who turned me on to a 2004 Pontiac Vibe) stated he would not even try to sell their 2004 Chevrolet Impala to me (around 130k miles on it I believe) because it had too many problems with it, and it was just a piece of junk. I think it is best to shy away from any Chevrolet Impala around this make year, because the newer ones 2008-up seemed to be improved."

"I bought this car used and have had it for 6 yrs and it has been an awesome car!!!!! No major problems with it at all. In the six years we have had it there have been only 2 minor issues that cost maybe $500 total to fix, that is awesome! We do regular oil changes and she runs great! I can't believe just what a great car she is! A friend of mine has an 05 and has had nothing but trouble with hers. Makes me even more greatful!!! :-)"
