A consuming vehicle that is dependent on willingness of money and work.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

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.

A very normal impala, apart from gas gauge.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

Seats are soft nylon and cotton, some people may dislike that. Otherwise very comfortable. The gas gauge does not work properly: it displays a much higher reading than what is actually in the tank. Otherwise vehicle operates reliably. Has standard features for a car of its era: anti-lock brakes, alarm system, CD player (but no cassette player), AM/FM radio, standard heating and cooling system. All work properly in my vehicle.

The fact that it runs great at this mileage is wonderful!!

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

We love it so much that we bought a 2nd car of the same kind. We never intended to have the car this long but due to economics we haven't bought a newer one! This one now has 297,000 miles on it and is driven every day! Lots of room in the car for comfort and easy to get in and out of. My husband is disabled and has no problems getting in and out of it and it holds his walker or wheelchair in the trunk just fine.

The good and the bad of an older car or truck.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

My vehicle is good most of the time, but as it gets older, it almost feels like it is going to break down. I believe it is reliable and it has leather seats, which feel pretty comfortable. The vehicle has nice tires and rims, but the paint is slowly coming off, the view from the driver's seat is great. The only thing that I don't like about the car, or any car, not truck, is that it is just so low to the ground.

Positive insight on the 2002 Chevy impala.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

Easy upkeep, and at 170,000 miles I got the engine rebuilt and the cv changed and its literally brand new! Keeping it for at least another 5 years. The car has so much space inside and I locked my keys inside once before and the car is so safe nobody could steal it unless they broke out the windows! I honestly have nothing negative to say about the car is reliable and comfortable.

Chevy impala pros and cons

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

No problems. Cloth seats hold smells. Is not made with a six cord and the sound system isn't up to date. The seats are only able to be adjusted in two ways. You sit closer to the steering wheel or to layback or sit up. There's a middle console that dumps everything out when you lift it but a convenient third seat belt there.

- Shai M

Great overall vehicle with heated seats.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

The 2002 Chevrolet impala is a really great vehicle. It has heated seats, plenty of legroom and the seats are comfortable for long distances. The only problem I have run into so far is the power steering reservoir is underneath the windshield washer reservoir on the passenger side. It's a rather smooth drive.

Chevy white impala 2002. Supersport

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

This vehicle has had some problems such as the starter going out. It also has a clicking sound when the air conditioning gets turned on. There is a slight side swipe on the car. I like the car but it has poor gas mileage for traveling. It is a super sport so it has a V8 engine and has some kick to it.

Electrical issues and computer issues.

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

There are a lot of electrical issues with this car. Sometimes it will start sometimes it will not. Other than that it is a good car to own. Just wish they would of checked the problems first before selling it. Comfortable riding and roomy just the electrical and computer issues.

- Jodi B

Comfiness and durability with Florida conditions

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

A lot of electrical problems due to weak starter and alternator. The car has been an all around good car just due to the electrical problems it has been an ongoing frustration. The maintenance has been very easy and self-explanatory but a lot of electrical problems.

- Cody G

Impala's are where it's at!

2002 Chevrolet Impala Base

I really like my car. I have had to replace almost the entire front end. It runs smooth again. One complaint I have is where the power steering fluid Reservoir is located. Also, it is a gas hog! Other than that it is my favorite vehicle that I have ever owned!
