My Alero has a sport suspension and a good engine and the steering is great! There are still a lot of them on the road, which attests for the quality of the make.

My vehicle is actually a 2000 Oldsmobile Alero but you didn't give me that choice. I LOVE my Oldsmobile Alero!! It's really too bad GM stopped making Oldsmobiles. It was the best car they've ever made. We've had Ninety-Eights, Eighty-Eights, Cutlasses, Achievas and Aleros. My Dad had the Chevy Impala and it was alright but not an Olds. Now he has a Cadillac. Personally, I don't like bucket seats and I don't like some of the sight lines in the new Chevys that I've test driven. I had a recall incident with my Alero that I took care of before the recall and GM did not reimburse me nor stand behind their product. Great way to treat members of the "GM Family." Customer service was actually rude.

2000 Chevrolet Impala: a car you will love.

My 2003 Chevrolet Impala has a few minor problems. The dashboard lights do not work at night. The traction active light comes on when the abs warning light comes on. This is an indicator of a speed sensor not working. The car runs great. It has a 3. 8 engine. It has a fast acceleration and a very smooth ride. It gets between 19 to 23 mpg. It is front wheel drive and drives great in all types of weather. It is a full size car with seating for five. It is an automatic. Has air conditioning, power seats, and a radio/cd player that can be operated from the steering wheel. It has power seating and windows. This is my third Chevrolet that I have owned. It is a good car to drive.

Our 2000 Chevrolet Impala has proven to be a very reliable car overall.

I like the fact that we paid $3000 for the car in 2015 and it is still (mostly) going strong. I do wish it was somewhat larger though as my partner's wheelchair takes up 2/3 of the back seat and our crutches take up most of the front passenger seat. Since my orthopedic doctor now wants me to be in a wheelchair too, we are going to be struggling to figure out how to fit both wheelchairs into the car. Mine will have to probably go into the trunk but that will take up most of the space that we would normally use for groceries.

It has made me learn and study more about cars and their defaults.

It belonged to my uncle who passed away last year and was given to us to get around. Right after he died the car had an engine fire and repairing it has been stressful. I replaced the intake, got a tune up. The motor-mount has to be replaced. Causing the vehicle to shake while at the red lights. The turn signals and horn don't work properly. The power-steering fluid hardly stays. And the wire to the engine gets loose. I have to take apart the battery every time I turn off the car or it will not start.

This car is great on gas. Plenty of space.

Well first off, the car is not mine, it is my roommates. What I like about it is that it is good on gas. I like how small it is but doesn't seem small when I am inside. I love the sound system that it has in it and how I am able to hook my cell phone I to it. I do not like the fact that it's constantly getting flat tires, the parts are expensive to fix, there is too much play in the steering wheel.

The Chevy Impala is basic and sturdy.

The Chevy Impala is a basic and what you would want in a car, it has a radio and that's about it. The car is 18 years ago and to this day it is still running. It has traveled to Utah, Colorado, Arizona, Texas, and all over new Mexico, so it has a ton of miles on it. That being said the car is starting to have engine problems such as a leaking coolant from a crack I cannot find.

2000 Impala work car comfort and reliability.

I drive my 2000 Impala to work every day. It is reliable. I have to drive around 80 miles in one trip to and from work. The car is comfortable to sit in. Which means a lot to me after driving an hour to work. Working 12 hrs and then the hour drive home. I haven't had any major problems with the mechanics of the car. It is in excellent condition.

- Richie S

An interesting detail about my vehicle is that it still runs nicely.

It is old so it really does work well. But the comfort of the car is limited, as well as the sound system. No Bluetooth. No back up camera. It needs more technology added within the car in order to have a more reliable drive. Also, the tires are small and I've had several flats already it seems to me they are made poorly.

- Alexis J

It is super cool that is why I haven't bought another one since it came out.

It runs great okay you are right has lots of space and it is very comfortable I also like body style and the same job Impala has made vehicles very good for many years I would vehicle to a lot of buyers if you are about style comfort good-looking design and body strength of your vehicle.

- Pablo R

I think the most important thing about my car is the gas mileage, even 18 years old, it gets about 28 highway/23 city.

My vehicle gets great gas mileage, especially given its age. The interior is nice. The radio works wonderfully. There's plenty of trunk space. The only problem I have with it is that the bright lights won't stay on, but the former owner broke that, it's not the car's fault.

- Megan B

2000 Chevrolet Impala-a money saver.

Nice designs with spoiler, leather heated seats, power windows and doors. Extra large trunk, highway mpg between 27-32, roomy back seats and leg area, low maintenance, comes in a variety of colors, heavy enough it gets around good in snow, radio controls on steering wheel.

- Linda M

Although it is old it is very reliable.

I like that the vehicle is reliable. It has an easily repairable engine and I can do much of what I need to by myself, however I strongly dislike that the power steering fluid is underneath the engine and I need a long nosed funnel to check or add to it.

- Abigail Y

My car needs work done, but it is reliably enough for me.

My car needs a tune up, driver seat does not move at all (forward, backward, up or down) my back right door does not open. It was that way when I bought it from a previous owner. All in all, its reliability is ok, it gets me to where I need to go.

Tina's Impala years in review

I am the second owner to the vehicle. In the beginning, I didn't have a lot of problems. I have kept up maintenance on the vehicle. Has been serviced every 3000 miles. All issues with the vehicle has currently been fixed.

- Tina P

Reliable and Roomy for Road Trips!

It is very low to the ground, but besides that I don't really have complaints! It is a reliable car that I have taken on many road trips. As long as you keep up with regular maintenance, it should hold up well!

- Mak Y

There's no back ac and no way to put an infant car seat belt under the seat.

I like the make and model. I didn't choose the car but i like it. It's really roomy and comfortable. It's good for taller people as well. It's good gas mileage and saf. But compared to the new cars It's trash.

The car is worth the trouble if you really want a simple car for a first time car or something to last.

The 2000 Chevy Impala is a dependable car that will manage to get you where you need to go with plenty of space and comfortably. It does take a lot of gas, but it can manage.
