2003 Chevrolet Impala Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Impala
High mile 2003 Chevy Impala runs still runs great!
We have had good luck with our Impala. We now have 323, 000 miles on it! The most important thing, as is common sense with any vehicle, is regular maintenance. Just have it checked over regularly. We have caught and repaired small issues before they got out of hand. The best part about the Impala is the engine transmission and body seem to hold up against rust. This car gets driven in snow and the unibody frame still looks in mint condition. The engines are more basic these years so when it needs something, spares are readily available and usually cheap to repair. Rides great and still gets 25+ mpg with mountain driving where I live. I will keep driving until it just cannot be repaired.
It is been a very dependable, reliable car. I love the size, easy to maneuver.
I love this car. Very comfortable, easy to drive, simple to understand. I bought it used and a new engine had been installed. I have had only a few issues with diagnostic lights not wanting to go out once the issue is resolved. I also have the drivers side window that I can't/won't use, the mechanism that makes the window go up is going out and I do not want the window to get stuck in the down position. Also there is some sort of short in the fuel gauge, it ranges from full to empty, I track my fuel usage by mileage. Just a few issues but it is 15 years old, and it is been very reliable, so far.
A very comfortable vehicle.
The 2003 Chevy Impala is very comfortable, it drives and rides smooth like a car but it sides like a SUV. It is easy enough to get in and out of with plenty of legroom. I love the power assist buttons on the side of the driver's seat. It makes adjusting the seat to be comfortable for driving super easy. It is a medium size car so it is plenty roomy and the trunk has lots of space for big shopping trips. It has a CD player as well so there is a choice of music options. It is a lower shifter, not on the steering column. So if anyone has any hand issues it is easy to shift into gear.
Safe, reasonable and reliable sedan.
My vehicle is reliable and comfortable. It is large enough to fit 4 adults comfortably with luggage. It is easy to fix and reasonably priced for repairs and insurance. I feel safe driving it, even if I have trouble finding it in parking lots sometimes because it is a popular model. I have never had any problems that weren't easy to rectify. The car performs well for my needs in the city, with limited daily highway driving. It is a simple vehicle, with limited bells and whistles, that is safe, reasonably priced and has not let me down.
How great is this car?!?!?!
It's a really good car and great for a family, it will get you place from work to home to the kids after school activities and everything else. It is the perfect car for people just starting their families. I have had my car for a while now and it is still running great. It has a lot of room if you want to drive out of state to travel to different states. The sound system is great sound throughout the car is just lovely. My nieces can fall asleep in the back seat in the drop of the hat that is just how great the car is.
Made for long distance driving.
I love this car. The inside is well laid out and well built. It has all the bells and whistles. It is a tough car, but the number one problem with it is electrical. The bam control is weak. The ride is great, power is good. It is made for driving long distance. Long trips are more enjoyable than local. I have a problem with the traction, locally. The seats are so comfortable I fall asleep driving any distance. It has a lot of legroom. The trunk is huge. I am telling you it is made for long distance driving.
Comfortable, dependable ride.
My Chevy Impala has been a wonderfully reliable car. With regular maintenance it has given me very few unexpected problems. It is a very comfortable drive, the driver's seat adjusts several ways and makes driving a pleasure. All the necessities, i.e.: cruise control, wipers, brights, are easily accessible without moving your hands too far. The heat and ac work great and have several adjustments for comfort for the driver and passenger. This is one of the best cars I have ever owned.
Cali has pockmarks all over because I was in Cullman when the hailstorm hit.
Okay. Cali(my car) sat for like two years before I bought her. She's in good condition and with just a few quarks. Her fuel gauge is bust, but that does not bother me. I know that she can go 200-250 miles on a full tank and that is good enough for me. Her stereo system is half blown and uses a tape deck adapter, she does not have ac, and she occasionally has an overheating problem, but I do not care. Cali gets me from A to B reliably and that is all I need.
Simple, dependable, and spacious.
I have had my Chevrolet Impala for 2 years now. The car is great, lots of room, and dependable. The trunk is massive and has fit everything I have asked of it. I have had to replace the speakers and the tie rods, but both of those were expected maintenance. The car gets ok gas mileage, but I work and go to school close to my house so it is not a large issue. The car has held up without skipping a beat and I would highly recommend this car to anyone.
Pros and cons of our Chevy impala.
We bought our impala used 6 months ago and have loved it. We have a sunroof, adjustable seats, power windows, and radio controls on the steering wheel. Since owning it, we have had to replace all the tires and the drivers side control arm. Our a. C. Has went out on us since. We tried fixing it but we are not sure what is wrong. Our passenger side windshield wiper motor has quit on us. Other than that it has been a great car and we love it.
