"Fairly happy with the car other than it's needed more repair work done than should be necessary. First, had some head gasket issue. Google searching revealed this is a common problem for Impalas. Once it happened under warranty once it happened outside of warranty. Second, every few years need to flush the heating core otherwise there is no heat when the car is stopped. This is a pain in the butt in Iowa winters. Apparently the heating core is in the lowest part of the block/engine/whatever and collects dirt too easily. At 77,000 miles (on average) a wire that connects the gear shifter to the ignition breaks and you either can't get the keys out of the ignition or you can't move the gear shifter (depending which wire breaks/disconnects). This is a minor design flaw, every time you move the gear shifter these wires move and eventually they break. I've had some other issues but can't remember them off the top of my head. Multiple service shops have told me the Impalas typically use cheap parts and therefore they break easily (for example the head gasket issue)."

Beautiful car handles great.

"had to replace trans seal leaking, under warranty, and it has been a great vehicle since. no problems ever, trans didn't even slip, although it was low on fluid. just put two tires and a battery on it. that's all it ever needed. could be a little more comfy, nice leather, but kinda hard. faux wood grain dash looks good. great bose stereo."

Everything is good except Gas Tank reading .
