It's in not so good condition and a bit rusty.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

2001 impala, runs rough has fair gas mileage. Transmission slips in 3rd and 4th gear. Chime ringer stays on when driving as if door is open. Rusty, has wiring for amp and subs. Has noise in passenger front side wheel area. Had it since 125,000 miles it currently has just over 150,000 miles. Replaced many parts including gas lines, radiator, muffler, batteries, alternator, yes more than double what we paid for it.

Durable, reliable and spacious.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

I love my impala. It rides smooth and very spacious. The only real downside has been the key ignition switch has had issues and it was a recall for several models. I have had the motor replaced 2x and I transmission change. The parts are normal cheap for repair. I will say the tires tend to be expensive and the exact size is hard to find but you can use a smaller size or 1 size up.

Impala still works fairly well

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

We've had this car for 18 years and it still runs fairly well. We've had to do quite a bit of maintenance work on it to keep it functioning but it still has its problems. The check engine light pretty much always stays on, the turn signals sometimes stick and don't work, and it has stalled out quite a few times. Other than that though, it is still a very reliable car.

The life of my Chevy impala, in a nutshell a good one.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

My car is very reliable and has good gas mileage. I keep it serviced when I am supposed too. I have never had any problems with my car I use to drive to work downtown Nashville and good overall performance. The one problem I have had was motors on the windows. We have to order from dealer but our own mechanic installs them. I think these could be made better.

Used 2001 Chevrolet Impala Base Model 3.4L

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

I recently started having issues with the engine stalling and not wanting to stay started. Other than that the only issues I had were minor fixes like replacing the battery, brake master cylinder, and a few fuses. Overall the vehicle has been good to me and once I fix it, I believe it will become reliable once more and will last me for quite a few more years.

2001 Chevy Impala: Pretty good car.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Nice sized car. Has a very large trunk which is great for groceries and the back seat fits three car seats pretty well. But it has some issues with the transmission slipping. Probably due to its age. Very strong car though. My husband had an accident in it and didn't get a scratch and it's still drivable. Overall pretty good car.

- Cheyenne H

Love the model and the color is great.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Starts everyday runs good don't use a lot of gas no problems really a dependable car good on the highway not a lot of wear on tires long as it does what I need it to do I am good nice interior color good you can't hear it run low maintenance I love it if something went wrong I would go out and buy another maybe different color.

Safety and comfort, what most of us are looking for in a car

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

I have had 2 Impalas now, both purchased 2nd hand. In the 1st one, I was in a bad wreck and the car help up very well and kept me safe. The paramedics were commenting on how little damage I had considering I was a good 4 ft into their trunk/back seat. I'm a very large person and the car is comfortable to drive and ride in.

'01 Chevy impala still performing well after 220,000 + miles

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

I am the second owner of this vehicle. It has been a very durable car, even after driving for 220,000+ miles. The comfort is one of the best qualities. Leather and interior is great, even with age. Normal maintenance has been required, nothing major. Engine and transmission have been solid. Overall great car

- Terence J

Great forward wheel drive and great gas mileage

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Key ignition problems and right passenger tie rod is out I have electric problems in my steering area where I can't see the Park,Drive,neutral and reverse. I have to replace brakes every 4 months but I love driving my vehicle. I also have to get the oil change very 2,000 miles so I won't blow up the engine

- Destiny S

Want a good, reliable car? Pick impala.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Great car. It runs amazingly smooth. It is like you are floating in the air when you drive it. My father and I went half and half on it. Got it worked on to fix some odds and ends and now it is great. It also sounds real mean like it is growling. It was a good deal for a car. Impala is the way to go.

- Lauren B

A reliable car that gets the job done.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

This vehicle is still running great after 130,000 miles. A few sensors have needed to be replaced, but no major problems with the engine. Not flashy, just gets the job done. Decent gas mileage, averaging between 18-22 mpg. Flex fuel is an option as well, although seems to get less mpg.

- Jason S

awesome vehicle hasn't let me down yet

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

The performance of my Impala is great does not use any oil,haven't had any major problems other than your typical small things battery, turn signals, brake pads, other than that it's been really a great vehicle, you sit in it comfortably everything in the vehicle is power

- Shane S

Great car for a first car.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

It's an ok car and easy parts to find and maintenance is easy to perform and the seats are fairly comfortable. The car also has a good motor and can go really fast pretty easy to get up and go not to big not to small and is fairly easy to park and drive in tight traffic.

- Quan R

My impala, while a older model, is reliable

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

Ac goes out quick, good on gas, reliable, and good motor. I've had this vehicle for several years, only problem is a common one with the blender doors for the dual ac. Other than that the motor is very good and can withstand a lot. I would only suggest more luxury.

- Lucy H

My Chevy impala and the police package.

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

There is a police package on my car. It makes it more difficult to get repairs done or the repairs are extremely expensive. I have the search lights still on the outside of the vehicle. There is loads of room for my entire family and the car still runs smoothly.

- Martin M

A few problems but pretty reliable

2001 Chevrolet Impala Base

I love the size and comfort, but I have electrical issues with the windows even after I have gotten them fixed. Also my gas gauge has stopped working. It is somewhat reliable other than those problems. I like the look of my car. Its spacious but not too big.
