Still 'On The Road Again'

I love driving this car, it has a very small blind spot which is even smaller when the mirrors are set right. The pick up when needed is very good, especially on interstate traveling. And especially on two lane roads where allowed passing is limited. I get the gas mileage that was indicated on purchase., even tho this car is nearly sixteen years old. with 3000 mile oil changes this car does not have to have oil added to date, with it currently having some over 170,000 miles on it. The positive traction is great here in the Midwest. Paint is clear, and except for the usual minor chips from gravel and debris on interstate roads there is NO peeling. I have had no problems except having to take it in for new rotors about 3 months after purchase which was covered under warranty, and a new catalytic converter at about 140,000 miles. Also the speed control switch died about that time, which may have been my fault for not turning it off in heavy traffic. All in all this car has and still serves me well.

Critique of the 2003 Chevrolet Impala from a devoted owner

This car is everywhere, very reliable. I don't drive much, less than 6,000 miles a year, I have less than 75,000 miles on it today. I live in a very small town in Texas and there are 4 of them. I'm retired and I'll have this car forever. It is the luxury model with leather seats, bottom warmers for the winter, a/c runs great. I did find a very good general mechanic, which is very important for older cars and getting proper parts. If you want reliability, comfort, and safety, try to find a good used one. If you have to have new, the new ones are very nice and attractive and have heard they are as reliable. My car is inexpensive, except for tires, but got to have them. It is 16 years old so the entertainment tech is basic. I have an iPhone so I can adapt. Being in a hot climate means a/c use so make sure hoses and belts are current and a/c checked every year. Have fun with your new used Impalas!

Good, Dependable Family Car

This car was great when new but requires a lot of maintenance once you put over 75,000 miles on it. Having said that, I now have over 210,000 miles on it. These cars tend to have a security problem that I know other people have had as well. Occasionally, the car will not start so you have to leave the key turned on for 10 minutes then it will start. You never know why or when this will happen but it seems to happen more often when it is hot than during the cooler months. The car has continued to get good gas mileage. It is very roomy and comfortable for long trips. Trunk is very large with plenty of room when vacationing. Back seats do lay flat so you can haul longer items through the trunk. Considering it is 16 years old, it has been a good, reliable car and I would recommend it.
