2007 Chevrolet Impala LS 3.5 V6 from North America


Awesome car; everyone should have this car


The battery doesn't last long (the way I use it).

I had to replace the passenger front tire; the tires are very sensitive.

General Comments:

It's a fast car, and it's very comfortable and very good to rely on.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A G35? It's a great car, sure, but I could buy 2 Impalas for that price. Maybe 3 or 4 if I bought used.

I've driven a G35 and checked their reliability ratings. I'd prefer the Impala.

I have an '07 Impala with about 38,000 miles. It has good MPG numbers, good HP numbers and it seems to be mechanically sound.

The paint isn't as good as some of my past cars though. I bumped a plastic recycling bin when parking and it actually scratched my bumper. It also has some chips and rock marks which my last car, an Oldsmobile, didn't really have.

I did have an alignment problem, but you can't really blame the car for that (road work!!!)

All in all though I like the newer GM cars. They all seem to look, drive and function well. I wish they still made my Oldsmobile though as they were the ideal car for me.

It's great for the environment because you'll never want to drive it


Faulty tire pressure sensor, Intermittent problem with the power steering becoming heavy despite fluid reservoir being full. 2 service departments have acknowledged the problem, but do not know how to resolve it.

General Comments:

My 2007 Impala is a company owned vehicle. It was chosen for me while I was on extended leave. How I wish I was there on car choice week!

This is without a doubt the blandest car I have ever had in my possession. I hate to admit I drive it. I try to be positive about most things in life, but this car really bothers me.

The steering problem started about 4 weeks into ownership. When I took the car to be looked at, I was told it was because I wasn't used to driving Chevrolet products. I understand that the level of steering weight varies on every car, but this was beyond acceptable. There have been times where the steering becomes completely none assisted. I have serious safety concerns about this.

Fuel consumption is quite good for a car of it's size- I tend to average 25/27mpg highway and 19/21 city.

The seats are very soft and I would prefer more support. This is a preference and therefore not a criticism.

The XM radio was working fine for the first few months, but one day after heavy rain, it has never been the same. The signal is now intermittent. I will live with it because it's almost car choice time again.

The styling seems very dated and it represents all that is wrong with the US car industry. I don't see any real thought being put into this vehicle. It is a car destined for rental companies, bulk buys for fleet and it will end life as a taxi. Do not spend your hard earned money on this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I found the Impala very dated. I can't see why people would buy it. GM needs to take a bolder direction.

This review can be dismissed out of hand. He doesn't say a single thing that is wrong with the car, but only gripes about how he doesn't like it. I have the same opinion as him about the Toyota Corolla, but that doesn't mean there is anything necessarily "wrong" with it. How are you going to gripe about a stripped down fleet vehicle that your company bought in bulk?
