A consuming vehicle that is dependent on willingness of money and work.
This vehicle has been very tough on someone with a varying income. The reliability of a Chevy impala is not high in most mechanical ways, and has costed more money for me than convenience. It has an unusual under the hood set up; meaning, the vehicle's units are not placed according to others and easy things are placed in hard to get spots. For example, to put steering fluid into a 2002 impala, you are required to remove multiple components in order to do so. Also, this vehicle does not do well in snow or rain. It is a smooth riding vehicle, so if you live somewhere warm, you could have a different opinion. Most times I spend my days scraping up money to get this car on the road, and for someone with a spotty income, this vehicle has been nothing but a disaster for me. I do, however, love the interior and the message board center in my dash. The sunroof is a great touch. Would not buy this make or model again.
