2001 Chevrolet Impala LS 3.8 V6 from North America
An awesome ride!
Coolant leak at 1,000 miles. Dealer repaired under warranty.
Transmission went out at 6,000 miles. Dealer installed new transmission under warranty and GM extended vehicle warranty to 60,000 miles.
Catalytic converter backed up and had to be replaced while on vacation - On Star made this entire ordeal VERY easy on us. Warranty covered cost of replacement.
Despite the problems listed above I absolutely love this car.
I have made many long trips in it and the combination of comfort and power is outstanding. This car will cruise comfortably at 100.
Fuel economy has been great with an average of 30 mpg on the open highway.
On Star - what a lifesaver
Steering wheel mounted controls for cruise and stereo
Storage - mafia size trunk, map pockets and console make up for a glove box that is only suited for holding a pair of gloves.
I loaned this car to my parents for a cross country trip (7,000 miles). Upon their return they announced they were coming back to Chevrolet after owning Toyota's for twenty years. Mom now cruises in her very own Impala.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
